There are many alternatives. What are you interested in doing? Are you specifically interested in writing? If so, writing for yourself is one option. Or are you interested in other things?

So, can you actually make consistent money from mTurk?

How do you go about doing that?

I make about $5 per day on MTurk. I mostly do surveys but will do short transcription on occasion. I'm still building my reputation so I'm not eligible for most of the higher paying jobs but I'm trying!

I've been seeking another egg like MTurk but haven't found ANY that pay daily like MTurk.

Microworkers is very similar but you need $9 in your account to cash out which can be challenging to get in 1 day.

User testing pays very quickly but there's not always available work. It's a website usability testing gig.

Any micro task site will be similar but the payout options are the big differences. Good luck and PLEASE let me know what you find.

5 dollars a day? Unless you're spending only about 30 minutes a day on this, run, do not walk away from Mturk. You can easily make (in a few hours) $20 or more on Textbroker.

I LOVE Mturk because I can have cash in my pocket almost every day of the week, esp since now you can cash out at $1.00.

The most important thing is to link up with people who know what they're doing. By far the best place for that is Turkernation.com. I went from making $2/day to $20-30 a day because of them. And because of the qualifications I have (because of them), there have been days I've made $100 or more a day. My highest day was something like $250 (it was a certain qualification though).

I know you're asking about alternatives but I have yet to see the same earning potential/withdrawal-ability. I know people do clickworkers but I never went there cause I also hear it's glitchy, only works in IE (?) and the work is sporadic...never really paid attention because Mturk is the best imo, for what it is

I like Blogmutt. Depending on your areas of expertise, you can write about 2-5 posts an hour. $8/post.

Microworkers is considered one of the best websites that is comparable to mTurk. Thousands of tasks are available on a daily basis.
