Crowdsourcing platforms are intermediaries that create a bridge between those who need personnel to do some tasks and those who are willing to carry them out in exchange for a payment. Of course, this type of platform takes a percentage of the money obtained in exchange for tasks, but even so, this source is quite attractive when seeking to add extra income per month. You will be amazed to know how much work you can find on the web and what you can do from home.
These mini-jobs are quite varied, ranging from the translation of texts to other languages, reading text and recording it with a microphone, doing surveys, visiting web pages, viewing advertisements, validating addresses, etc.
Not this kind of "mini" tasks...
An important aspect that should be considered is that all mini tasks are completely voluntary, for this reason in no case do you have the obligation to perform them. There is no contractual relationship with the company which provides the jobs and no minimum time to dedicate to them either. However, it is evident that people who perform best in activities will be better rewarded both economically and in the the number of tasks to be carried out, this being the main reason behind taking the jobs seriously and doing them as best as they can be done.
It is one of the platforms of American outsourcing created in 2007 and is one of the most famous worldwide since it has its own website, without the need for extra intermediaries. It is a company with more than 10 years of experience in the area. There are two modes in which you can perform tasks published by Figure Eight, with one of them being performing tasks through other sites such as Clixsense or Neobux. It is important to note that carrying out the tasks directly from the page will not be an inconvenience if you want to perform them through other websites such as those mentioned above.
Among the tasks it offers are the transformation of text, image, audio and video data into high-quality personalized data for a wide range of cases and uses, including consumer product identification, natural language processing, search relevance and more.
Although people from any part of the world can be part of the Figure Eight community, the tasks and the main language of the page is English. With respect to the payment method, the earnings are paid in US Dollars (USD) through the PayPal electronic wallet. In case you work trough third parties as Clixsense or Neobux (as mentioned below) the money is received instantaneously upon finishing the job and once reached the minimum by wallets PayPal, Skrill and Payza.

Don't worry: you won't need to be Paul the Octopus to work on Figure 8.
A crowdsourcing page where you can also earn money by completing very simple jobs, once you've learned how to work here you can score points quickly.

The best thing about this company is that it is the only one that appropriately recognizes the Spanish-speaking community, so it uses two languages as a base (English and Spanish). This company was founded in 2014 in the United States and its activity is based fundamentally on the optimization of artificial intelligence systems.
It is very simple to use this platform, you just have to register and accept tasks; they use PayPal to pay and they do it once a week, specifically on Fridays. They have a wide variety of tasks, but most of them focus on "getting the meaning of" or on providing human information, in audio, video or image files.
Referral system: You earn a commission of $2 USD every $10 USD earned by your referrals. This condition applied only until receiving a maximum of $100 USD of commission gain. The referral link will be given to you once you reach level 1.
It is a company of Russian origin that was founded in April 2014, and that allows us to obtain income by solving captchas online. This work is relatively simple and quite repetitive, so getting used to it will be something as automatic as breathing.
The gains in the platform are defined by lines of 1000 Captchas, that is to say, for each thousand of these images deciphered you will earn an amount of money according to the rate of the moment.
This website uses the following electronic portfolios: AdvCash, Payza, Bitcoin Wallet (except Coinbase), Uphold, and WebMoney; the payments are usually instantaneous, although sometimes it takes up to two or three days to be made effective. The first time you enter the site will ask you the language you want to operate and you can choose between English or Spanish. In addition to your computer, there are platforms that offer applications for mobiles to carry out mini-tasks.
Referral system: the platform also has a referral system that will pay us 10% of what they generate or spend on the platform. Obviously, this represents a great opportunity to multiply our income within 2Captcha.
I doubt that all of these people are doing mini-tasks, but they COULD be.
This website belongs to the category GPT (Get Paid To) so it has a different operation compared to the pages mentioned before, the main difference between these sites is that in the GPT pages there are more varied and simple activities that generally are called micro-jobs.

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain...
• Only a genius can know how to do the listed mini tasks correctly
Well yes, if that 'genius' has a connection to the Internet, then yes, they have the possibility of doing the tasks correctly and ascending through the levels. I mean - that in addition to having channels where everything is explained (including how to perform the tasks) as is the case of YouTube - there are also forums, pages, groups on social networks and other information-sharing sites in order to teach the instructions required to carry out the work correctly.
• Freelancers can survive without referrals when mini-tasks are involved
Crowdsourcing pages offer a unique advantage, the possibility of earning money without having referrals. Many of these sites have these systems but it is not mandatory to use them, because what really counts here is your work and dedication when executing tasks and leveling up; in conclusion, this way of earning money is still perfect for you if you want to generate good profits and it's hard for you (or you do not like) having to create a network of referrals and/or affiliates... but you will certainly gain more by having them around.
Crowdsourcing has become an innovative idea to create goods and services for all parties involved in the strategy, becoming an excellent option to earn money easily and safely from your home or anywhere else you want to be.
