A few days ago, I was searching for some data entry sites to list on my blog for my readers and stumbled upon an article at About.com where some of the sites were listed. Clickworker.com was one of their recommendations, so I went for it and signed up for the site to test it before recommending it to my visitors.
When I reach their site, it took me very long before the site loaded. Although I’m on a slower Internet connection, but the load time of their site was really miserable. Anyways, I signed up with them and confirmed my account and logged into clickworker.com.
At my account dashboard, I didn’t see any jobs nor clickworker‘s system notified me to take any tests etc. to get eligible for the jobs, as oDesk and Elance do. There were just two offers. One was a simple question in which I asked to answer the question, “from where I knew about clickworker”. I answered it and in return, clickworker.com added EUR 0.10 in my account balance :).
Do you know what happened after my initial earning of EUR 0.10? It never crept up! :P. But don’t think that clickworker.com is a scam or fraud. Let me explain why my earnings stayed at EUR 0.10.
Like all other freelancing websites, clickworker.com has its own strategies and technology for analyzing the freelancers who signed up there in an uncountable number. Soon after you signup, you need to complete some assessments there which helps clickworker.com in evaluating your skills. I failed to take their assessments. To be honest, the assessments were extremely dull.
When I started an assessment, they showed me a URL and asked me to provide details about the company which was behind that URL. I managed to find company name, address (including zip code), telephone number and fax number but I picked up the wrong person as CEO. It was really boring and time consuming. So I decided to cancel the assessment.
Next, I contacted some people who were working at clickworker.com. When I talked to them, I got replies totally diverging my expectations. They were happy with clickworker :). They told me that clickworker has given them micro jobs through which they can generate some extra income in their leisure time.
When I inquired details, they told me that like other freelancing sites, clickworker isn’t crowded much and they can find jobs easily. Additionally, clickworker provides them with micro jobs which are easy to do. According to them, working at clickworker is fun and joy!
So after a thorough research, I concluded that clickworker.com is worthy if you manage to complete their assessments by heart. It is a fact that in initial, it gets hard to build a recognition. You might have noticed that at oDesk, Elance and other freelancing websites, some people earn a lot and some fail to earn even a penny for several months despite of their competitive skills and they give up at the end!
But giving up doesn’t brings success and it applies for all sectors of businesses. With clickworker.com, you can earn good but keep passion in beginning and keep working to build recognition. Once after building a reputation, you will get to know how it is easy to earn money with clickworker 🙂
