I know people often say not to do the super low paying hits because it is a waste of time, but I got my first 1000 doing mostly $0.03 and below batch hits. Didn't take too long. After that, I focused on money a bit with surveys. I average $20-$25/ weekday now. Pulled $27 yesterday. Maybe I'll start doing low batches on the weekend for another boost. The key seems to be getting that first 1000 as quickly as possible. The fact that you found this site is a good start.Thanks for the advice everyone! As for focusing on the payout, I'm not too worried about that at the moment. More interested in getting my numbers up safely so those unavoidable rejections won't hurt too bad. I actually do economy lab experiments very similar to these at my university for a bit better pay. I have to say i'm surprised with how similar some of the tasks are but I guess a lot of the requests are from universities after all.
