Emotion Miner Review
I’m always on the lookout for new ways to earn money from home and this post is one I have come across very recently – Emotion Miner. This site is a new and quite enjoyable method of earning money from home as you are paid to watch videos! Emotion Miners tagline is ‘Make money and advance science by watching TV shows’ and that sums it up well. Users are paid to watch videos, usually of celebrity interviews and rate the emotions the celebrity guests are displaying. There are several short training videos to be watched before undertaking any work which fully explains how to rate these videos. The pay isn’t brilliant but is better than things like survey websites and importantly it is quite enjoyable! As long as you can understand English and have a Paypal or Payoneer account then you are good to go sign up.
How does it work?
Anybody can sign up to work for Emotion Miner. Before you can do any paid tasks you are required to go through the tutorials and do a couple of short tests. You have an unlimited number of attempts at these so they are nothing to worry about. The tutorials explain what emotions they are looking for and are not always the basic ones like ‘happy’ and ‘sad’. Once you’ve completed the training and done another quick English test then you will finally need to complete a test task. Your test will be reviewed and you receive an email a few days later notifying you whether you have been approved or not. If you have then you can now start earning!
On the task board is where you will see all the work available. You will notice that tasks are split into three categories; Standard Tasks, Extended Tasks and Jedi Master Task. You will also be able to see how many jobs under each category are available.
I’m only going to talk about the standard tasks as they are the only ones I have done so far and the ones you will have to start with anyway before you can do the others. Each standard task involves rating 15 videos. You work on one video at a time and each video is broken up into 20-30 fragments of the video each lasting a couple of seconds. You are required to rate the emotions of each fragment by selecting one or more of the available emotions you will see underneath the video. After you have completed every fragment of the video you save and continue to the next video and keep repeating until you have completed all 15 videos.
Of course I’m sure you are wondering about the all important amount you get paid for working on these videos. Emotion Miner pays a set amount of $5 for every standard task (15 videos). I found it took me about 45 minutes to complete a standard task which does work out at less than minimum wage however it’s certainly not the worst paying way to earn money online.
You only need to have accrued $5 to get paid and this can be withdrawn using either PayPal or Payoneer.
I think Emotion Miner is an interesting way of getting paid to watch videos. There are a couple of good points to emotion miner I haven’t already mentioned – You get 7 days to work on each task from the time you start so you can save your progress and come back to it at any time within the 7 days. This makes it quite flexible as you can do a few videos at a time if you want to. Additionally, the majority of the times I have signed in there seems to work available so there is potential to work and earn a good amount. There is also unlock the extended and jedi master tasks which pay a little better than the standard ones.
I’m sure many of us have done some really boring, mind-numbing online jobs such as surveys and at least with Emotion Miner you get to watch videos that are fairly interesting!
