Offerpal Media has launched “Offerpal Tasks,” a new way you can earn virtual currency to use in online games and social networks. You can earn virtual currency through Offerpal Tasks by completing easy online tasks through Amazon Mechanical Turk.
I took a look at some of the tasks and they included tasks like rating search results, categorizing web sites, categorizing articles, or even answering questions. Offerpal Tasks are available right now throughout Offerpal’s network of more than 2,000 web sites and applications.
Offerpal Tasks allows online gamers to select from 1000s of what they call “Human Intelligence Tasks”. These are chores you can do whenever it’s convenient. You can then convert what you earn into virtual currency that can be spent in online games and virtual worlds.
Offerpal Tasks are accessible as a tab within the Offerpal I-Frame, next to several other options for earning virtual currency, such as completing targeted advertising offers, filling out online surveys and shopping at brand name retailers. You can browse through the Amazon Mechanical Turk marketplace and select a task based on the type of work, how long it is estimated to take to complete, and how much it pays. Payment is made after you finish the task and it is authorized by the requester.
Other types of chores that are regularly available through Amazon Mechanical Turk include:
— Tagging photos
— Moderating user generated content
— Editing content
— Data cleansing (cleaning up data)
— Transcribing (like transcribing a video)
— Proofreading internet content
