It’s really really important to be attentive when completing qualifier tasks. And don’t forget the fact that they are evaluating your tasking.

It is obvious that their tasks are easier, Yet they want tasks to be accurate.

Even if you complete your tasks with lesser accuracy, you will be given opportunity after three days.

once you complete tutorials with higher accuracy, they will start to send tasks whenever tasks from that category are available.

Once you start to see paid tasks on your account, Click that as quickly as possible.

After clicking on the task, You will see your task. And your task instructions will appear in a pop-up.

Because of that, the number of tasks you are going to do is unpredictable.

One day you get a hand full of tasks, on the another, you may not even get a few tasks.

Fortunately, there are some possibilities to increase the number of tasks and that is what the next part is about.

How to increase the number of tasks

There are two major factors that are going to decide the number of tasks you receive.

The first one is Experience point(XP).

Experience point is the factor decides how good you are at tasking,

Spare5 Experience point

With every task you complete, whether it is paid or not you will receive experience point (XP).

Experience Points helps Spare5 to learn more about Tasker.

And that is like if you carry more Experience point on your account, It will send some positive message to their system.

The next thing is tasker’s consistency.

Taskers who complete qualifier tasks, keep visiting their site and complete given paid tasks without errors are the ones that more likely to receive tasks.

For instance, When I followed the all the three characteristics mentioned above, I was given a few tasks where I was asked to draw lines above the marks on the road.
