The internet has changed the way the world used to be. It has changed the way people do their job. Earlier when people use to search for job the time has come when jobs have come to your door step.

Working from home and being your own boss has been an aspiration for many. There has been a wild search of legitimate work from opportunities on the internet.  Off lately, many websites have come up which offers legitimate work from home micro job opportunities. These are called micro job as they take a couple of minutes or a couple of hours to complete such jobs.

Many students and professionals who have just started their career find it a great place to make their living and gather a working experience. Some have even made it their main job and live entirely by doing several micro jobs. Since micro jobs have so much to offer I have decided to list some website from where you can get miro jobs to earn some good money.

  1. Fiverr: It is one of the most successful online micro job portal so far. It receives a lot of traffic and is the most active market place. You can get almost any task done starting at $5. To sell your skill you simply need to register on this website which is free. Once you create your profile on Fiverr you are ready to sell your skill. Fiverr rates your profile based on feedback received from sellers and higher rating helps you get more offers from sellers.
  2. Mturk: Mturk also known as Mechanical Turk is owned by Amazon. They called their task HITS or Human intelligence task. Here different tasks have different payment amount and you can choose the task which you want to do. You get paid once the submitter of tasks approves your work. You need to register on Mturk as a worker, which is free and once you are registered, you can browse through several hits available and choose the one you want to work on.
  3. Envato Studio (Microlancer): It was previously known as Microlancer.

  6. Gigbuk: It works on similar principles of Fiverr. Here you can do micro jobs started from $5 up to $50 and this website is free to join.
  7. Gigbux: Gigbux and Gigbuk although they look similar but they are two different websites. It is a micro job website, where you can sell your skill. It is distinct from Gigbuk in pricing. Gigbuk has a price range from $5 to $ 50 where as Gigbux has three prices at which a worker can sell his skill and that is $5, $10 an $20. Like Gigbuk it is free to join.
  8. Zeerk : shark is emerging micro job marketplace which offers skills and services from a price range of $2 to $100. Apart from seller posting their profile, it also allows buyers to post their requirements. It is free for both buyers and sellers to join the website.
  9. User Testing: It is a portal which pays user to test a website or a mobile app. You get $ 10 for mobile testing and $15 for mobile testing. You need to do a voice and on screen recording of testing, which you do and then submit a form with answers of the question.
  10. Iwriter: If you are passionate about writing as I am then this is the best place to start with. It offers jobs specifically for writing content and article. Minimum payment offered by the site is $1 however, if you have good writing skills and once you become recommended writer on the website you will get high paying writing jobs. It is free to join however, they will ask of you, submit an article to check your writing skill before confirming your membership.

These are some website which offers micro jobs and are by far most successful and reputed website in this field. Most of the micro job website is free to join and they charge commissions for the work which they give you. These commissions vary from website to website.

Apart from these there are many other websites which are coming up, however, I would like to give you a word of caution here that although it is very attractive to get an opportunity to work from home but you should not fall in scam while searching for such opportunity. You should not pay someone to get work because if they have work to offer you they would earn the money from commissions. If any website asks for money from the worker to give them work, then most likely it is spam.

However, it is up to you to do the due diligence and make the right choice. World is full of opportunities it is for you pick the right one.
