They will give you proper instruction to complete the tasks. You need to follow the instructions and answer the tasks.

You can also stop working whenever you want.

Since it is a micro jobs site, there are different types of tasks with different outcomes. I have personally seen hundreds of different tasks.

Usually, you receive tasks from the following categories.

1. Data Entry

2. Internet Reseach

3. Annotations.

4. Paid surveys.

5. Reviewing the content on the internet.

Other than that you receive tasks from different categories occasionally.

In the upcoming parts, We discuss all the aspects of Figure Eight one by one.

How to set up your figure eight account?

Working with figure Eight is really simple.

You want to begin by creating a contributor account on Figure Eight.

Go to Figure Eight, fill up the signup form and verify your email Address.

Once you signed up for Figure Eight, the real process begins.

For Figure Eight, they are not directly paying you. In order to get paid, you have work from one of their partner sites.

Their partner list includes most of the famous GPT sites.

You sign up for a GPT site and connect that with figure eight account.

It’s also a really simple process.

For now, You have to decide which site you want to work from.

Regardless of whatever site you choose, there will difference in the pay for the tasks.

For example, take a look at the difference in payout from two of the famous GPT sites, Clixsense and Swagbucks.

This one is from Clixsense.

And this one is from Swagbucks.

You can notice the differences in the payouts. Simply, you work on the same task for different payouts.

After checking all the GPT sites, Ysense (Previously Clixsense) seems to be doing a good job.

The following factors make Clixsense stand out from other sites.

  1. Clixsense offers a higher payout rate per task.
  2. Offers a $5 bonus for every $50 you make.
  3. You receive a daily bonus of up to 16%
  4. You can earn up to $50 from their weekly contest if you make it into the top ten taskers.
  5. Minimum cashout is $10 through Paypal.

Because of the above perks I always recommend you to work from Clixsense.

Next step, we need to connect Figure Eight account with Clixsense.

Linking Clixsense account with Figure Eight

First of all, if you don’t have a Clixsense account, go to Clixsense and create an account. It’s free to create an account.

After creating a Clixsense account, go to the tasks page on Clixsense.

Figure Eight Task section on Clixsense

And if there are any tasks available at that moment,  click on any of those tasks.

If you don’t see any task in that account, click on the “show potential task”, then click on any of the tasks available.

It will redirect you to Figure Eight, Now just log into your Figure Eight account to you created to link both of them.

Once you do that, you can on Figure Eight from Clixsense directly.

How to get started with figure eight

So far we have been through how to set up accounts.

From this point, we enter into the working part of the Figure Eight.

Whenever you want to complete tasks, go to clixsense and check if there are any tasks in the available list.

See, when you begin with Figure Eight, You wouldn’t see a lot of tasks on the list.

That’s because Figure Eight follows a 3 level system.

You need to achieve level 3 in order to receive a maximum number of tasks.

In the beginning, they will automatically put in the level zero.

You need to work and gain experience to achieve those levels. For that, you need to answer at least 100 test questions.

When talking about the test question, most people misunderstand that to be a set of questions you need to answer all at once.

This is where this site differs from other micro job sites.

Whenever you attempt to complete tasks, the first task is a qualifier task which is called “Quiz mode”.

Task with test questions

In qualifier tasks, Figure Eight knows the correct answers for the task questions.

They use them to verify you are responsibly completing your job.

Coming back to the point, this is how they calculate test questions.

In the first qualifier task, the number of questions you answer is calculated as the number of test questions gained.

For example, if the first qualifier task you complete has 10 questions, that will be counted as 10 test questions.

And then every paid task you complete will add one more test question.

Here is an example.

I completed 51 tasks with every task containing 10 questions.

Calculating test question for Figure Eight

10 from the first qualifier tasks and 50 from 50 paid tasks. In overall, 60.

Achieving Level Batches

Just like mentioned above, you need to complete 100 test questions in order to achieve level batches.

along with test questions, you also have to maintain your accuracy over 70% to receive level batches.

The following are the accuracy you need to have to earn levels.

Level 1 – 70%

Level 2 -80%

Level 3- 85% and above.

For me, it about a week to accomplish all level batches.

Once you gain level batches,  you will have enough tasks available.

At any given time, you can expect more than 100 tasks.

You also have to maintain accuracy on your tasking, if you maintain accuracy over 85%, all the tasks will be available to your work.

The Zero Level tasks

Like mentioned earlier, When you start working, you are going to be at level Zero.

But the most frustrating thing is that they are not available all the time.

You would often see a task page that looks similar to this.

Tasks available for new members at Crowdflower

Because of that, it is important for you to be there when the tasks are available.

I have seen a lot of people giving up even before they get started because of the lesser tasks available.

You can simply get notified about the new tasks by adding Clixaddon browser extension.

It will notify you about tasks available instantly.

How to complete the task with Figure Eight

All the tasks in Figure Eight have the same pattern of completion.

Whatever the task you choose, the top portion is for the instructions.

In the instruction part, you have all the instruction you need to complete with examples for each one of them.

task instructions on Figure Eight

It’s important for you to understand that every task is unique and is expecting different results.

Most common mistake people make in the beginning is that when they see a similar task to the one they completed before, they skip directly to the task without reading instructions.

So always take your time to read the instruction before you start working on tasks even if you the task seem like very similar to the previous tasks.

It will also help you to improve your accuracy.

Once you see the instructions, for most tasks, in the next part you will see examples of tasks. Take a look at them too.

After that,  you have your task questions, follow the instructions and complete the tasks.

After completing the task click on the proceed button to finish the task.

On the next page, if you made any mistake they would let you know.

Otherwise, you can keep doing your tasks until they are available.

Two Different Types of Tasks

There is one other thing you need to know, two different types of Figure Eight tasks.

  1. Tasks with test questions.
  2. Tasks without test questions.

For both, the structure of the task is going to be the same.

But the only difference is with type 2.

There are no qualifier tasks or task questions.

Figure Eight (Crowdflower) tasks without test questions

That means there are no right or wrong answers. You can complete freely complete them without worrying about the outcome.

And these type 2 tasks are also often high paying.

Choosing the right tasks

Choosing the right tasks can be one of the important factors when it comes to making money in the long run.

This benefits you in two ways.

1. It let you earn more without spending much time on unnecessary tasks.

2. It helps you to maintain a higher level of accuracy.

So how you are going to choose the right task?

It’s easy.

Simply, you have to choose the tasks based on satisfaction.

On the last column (sixth column), you can see the rating column.

Tasks based satisfaction rating

It will help you to sort your tasks based on satisfaction.

But use this option after gaining levels.

When you are new, just like discussed before, you don’t really have a lot of option available. You have to complete every task available.

But when you achieved your level batches, you will have plenty of tasks available.

When you see High paying tasks, it’s enticing to choose those tasks.

But always choose your tasks based on a satisfactory level. it will help you avoid a lot of headaches.

The most recommended satisfactory level is three points and above.

How to Keep your accuracy high

It will be always crucial to have your accuracy maintained at an optimum level.

To maintain your accuracy,  make sure you follow these three simple tricks.

1. Read all your instructions carefully. The sample test questions may be the part of the tasks, make sure you see all them carefully. As you will have similar tasks on your test questions.

2. Choose fair paying tasks that are also easy to complete.

3. Finally, contact their support, if you feel like you completed the tasks correctly and they took that wrong.

4. Discuss your tasking in the Clixsense forum. There you can find a lot of people working on the same tasks as you. Connect with them. It will be helpful.

How to contact figure Eight support team

Whenever you feel like you are given unfair answers contact their support team they will help solve that problem.

To contact their support team, you have to have the job ID you have a complaint with and give them the detail why you feel their answer is unfair.

It’s best practice have screenshots of the problem you face.

To contact your support team, at the top of your task screen, click on “help” and then “File a ticket”.

Sending ticket to Crowdflower

Then file your complaint there to find a solution.

Can I find the answer to the task question?

And there is one another thing most people ask is “where can I find the right answer the tasks?”

Unfortunately, there is no one that can provide you that.

Like mentioned earlier, every task is unique and has different expectations in the outcome.

Above all, most of the tasks only last a few days. So the answers are not going to be the same for the next set of tasks.

Because of that, for most cases, it’s almost impossible to find the answer to those questions.

Conclusion

In overall, Figure Eight is an awesome site to work and earn money. Even though it seems a little bit difficult to getting started, once established, you can work on the site whenever you want to work.

Follow all the instructions mentioned above, and with the time you can to earn money.

After gaining, some experience you may start to work this, without any hassle.
