I am back with a work at home earning opportunity , I hope you have read and tried Spare5 after reading my review. I am getting a lot of queries on social media evaluator jobs and work from home jobs in india, Autralia, USA etc. So in this post I will be giving information about an online workplace called “Appen” which does provides opportunities for us to work online or from home. This is for a particular position called ‘Appen Social media evaluator‘ . Well, you can work as a social media evaluator in other companies like Lionbridge, Lepaforce etc. Since I have worked on Appen, I am writing this step by step guide which will help you understand about the work nature, how to apply and all the the information you need to know about being a social media evaluator. I have been working for about three months now, I am writing this review as I received payment from them and hence it is proved that they are a legitimate company.
They also provide many work at positions for philippines, Singapore etc. Some of the profiles include search engine evaluator, Translator, Social media evaluator, Crowdsourcing etc.
What is Appen?
Well, the above picture is the ‘About us’ page of the company. In simple terms Appen is a company which serves web based/ e-commerce firms to make their data healthier, Especially with the booming influence of social media platforms on consumer habits it becomes necessary to get the Internet marketing strategy right for the brands for which proper analysis of Data is a must. So Appen hires people to do the same, The best part being that all the positions they hire are work at home positions.
It has a simple Apply – Pass – start work policy, It is contract type and the work you get is very stable until your contract ends. The pay is decent and usually paid on hourly basis,The pay also depends on the type of position and the country in which you reside.
How does Appen pays it’s contributors?
Appen recently changed the way it issues payments to it’s contractors. Appen used to pay through direct bank transfer to contractors from most of the countries but now it pays through Payoneer. So, I advice everyone who are planning to apply for any positions at Appen to open an Payoneer account and keep it ready so that you can link it as and when Appen asks for it from you. Sign up using the button below as you can get $25 when you receive a payment of $100 from any source. You will not get $25 as soon as you sign up, you get it when you receive funds worth $100. Even if you may not use it for Appen(if you do not into any project) you can use it send and receive payments for majority of services/websites as it is becoming an alternative for Paypal.
What do I have to do as a Social Media Evaluator?
Now lets come to the main point of this article, What will you be doing and why are you being paid. The work of a social media evaluator will be to evaluate news feeds of different social media platforms and give feedback.
Depending on the company your working through Appen, You may have to work on facebook, twitter, instagram feeds etc. I got hired to evaluate my facebook feeds and rate them. I cannot give more details as it will breach of agreement with Appen. However I can certainly say that the work is super simple, The pay is very much decent. So now I will start the step by step guide for applying for Appen, remember applying doesn’t guarantee you a position.
You will get a response from them and whenever a requirement creeps up you will get an email from them saying your application is accepted. Then all you have to do is take the qualification test, after passing it you can start earning. The process is very simple and they give all instructions through email communication.

US participants can earn anywhere between 400-1500 $/month depending on the no of hours they are selected to do in a day.
Step 1 : Personal Data
As it can be seen in the picture above, In this step all you have to do is fill in your basic personal and communication data. This includes your Name, Address, Communication details Like Phone, email etc. Also they ask for online reference so that it can be authenticated that you are active on social media platforms. As you can see I have given my Facebook profile link as internet reference, This step is very important as the profile is related to social media. You add other social media platforms like google+,Instagram by clicking on the ‘+’ Sign, Make sure you have tested the link for each of your social media profiles you have submitted. Recheck all the data and proceed to the next step.
Step 2 : Education/ Training
This step you will have to enter courses which you have undergone till date. But I have not given the details here as my complete education details was listed in the resume. If you have anything outside the resume, It is worthy to mention it here. It can be any type of education / training.
Step 3 : Work experience
Here you will have to input any work experience you have prior to this or even if you are working currently. Appen doesn’t have a problem if you work in other places as this is a contract job, unless the work is similar in nature. Which means you cannot work for Appen and Leapforce for the same ‘social media evaluator’ post. I don’t have to enter anything because I am still pursuing my studies and have no work experience.
Step 4 : Qualifications
Here you can include any qualifications, It can be a certification in languages, computer programmes etc. Please don’t think more qualifications/ training you have easier it is to get the position, It doesn’t work that way. Just mention only if you have really done it.
Step 5 : Preferences
This step they ask you if you have any preferences, well I was more than happy to earn money so I din’t have preferences. I left this blank as I was ready to work under any circumstances but If you have anything then you can type in the box provided.
Step 6: Resume/ Attachments
I would say this is the most important step because this gives Appen an idea of what you are, Makes sure you tweak your resume such that matches the social medial evaluator position. Also adding a cover letter would help, convincing them as to how you could be a good social media evaluator. You can also upload any other documents like certifications of training/ qualifications which you have mentioned before. I just attached a resume and a cover letter.
step 7 : Overview and Release
This is the penultimate step, Here you will have agree that your application can be released and can be considered for various profiles on Appen , also agree to their data privacy statement. Basically tick the two boxes as shown in the picture above. Also before proceeding to the next step please check your application form. It will be shown in the same step, scroll down and check if all the details you have given are correct and true. After this you can proceed to the final step.
Step 8 : Complete
You have done all the hard work now, All you have to do is click on ‘complete’ in step 7 and you will receive a message which says ‘ your profile has been released’ . This means that your application has been successfully sent.
What Happens After I submit the Application?
You have done all the work from your side, After the application is sent you may be getting a reply from them stating if there are is vacancy for the post or not. If it is available, you will be again be sent a mail asking if you will be willing to work for the post. If your reply is yes, you will be getting step by step guidance from them as to how proceed and take the qualification and all other necessary details(All guidelines and materials will be given before the qualification so that you can prepare for the same).
So once you have passed the test you may be starting work after two days. The whole process may go up to a week. Don’t get disheartened if there is no vacancy, recently one of friend was told that there was no vacancy after he sent the application but he got a call after a week to join. So just submit the application for social media evaluator and hope for the best.
