    When I started Mturk before slightly giving up on it, I could make 10-30 dollars in a given day. Now it seems that opportunity is not present or maybe I am blind to that opportunity. Is there a good set of hits that anyone knows about that will get me 10-30 dollars on a given day like I use to get? Can someone refer a set of survey hits that will get me decent money? I've been going since 2011 on and off here are my stats:

    Hit Totals
    Hits You have Submitted
    HITs Submitted 37658
    ... Approved 36382 96.6%
    ... Rejected 1276 3.4%
    ... Pending 0

    It looks like you need to do some batch HITs to get your approval rating higher. Lots of HITs, especially surveys, require 98% (or even 99%) approval. This thread has links for a lot of HITs that post batches frequently.

    With a 99.6 your lucky to find any hits to do at all. Every good batch I have seen over the last 6 years requires at least a 99% approval rating. If you learn to transcribe you can make 100 or more a day but they will not hesitate to reject you in which case your entire day would be wasted.

    Digital, if I remember correctly you were telling me you made money transcribing. If you can coach me for an hour or two on your free time I will gladly pay you for it. I am so scared right now about life that I need to make sure I have an extra source of income. I thank you for taking the time to read this. I don't expect this to be easy, but it is a skill I will be happy to learn.
