Completing microtasks is essentially similar to freelancing, except that instead of freelance jobs, you do tasks that are usually much smaller, much simpler, and take way less time to get done, hence the word ‘micro’.
More often than not, microtasks are completed online, and require little to no qualifications. They often involve data entry, image recognition, voice transcription, video captioning, language translation, search engine evaluation, search result personalization, business listing verification, ads monitoring, and so on.
Because you’re dealing with microtasks, you should also expect a micro pay (lol) for completing each one. But because they are often so very easy to complete, you can do a lot of them in a short amount of time, allowing you to earn a decent income by the volume of work you can accomplish. While $100 a day off micro jobs might be a stretch, they’re still great for making money fast, for when you’re in a pinch or something.
