CrowdFlower Entrance Exam – Quickly Achieve Level 1 Badge

In this post I am going to show you how to take CrowdFlower Entrance Exam so you can quickly achieve level 1 badge in CrowdFlower micro tasks and get access to more available jobs.

For those of you have not already know about CrowdFlower, please read my post about ClixSense and NeoBux because CrowdFlower tasks are provided as one of the methods to earn free money from reward sites like those two.

As you already know, new CrowdFlower contributors will start in level 0 which mean almost rare to see any available job. That makes harder for you to achieve level badges because you have to do jobs in order to achieve the badges.

Regular method to achieve level badges

To achieve level 1, level 2 and level 3 badges, a contributor must fulfill these criteria:

1 5 100 70
2 10 100 80
3 10 100 85

If you get expelled from one or a few tasks, minimum jobs will increase from initial amount. For example, minimum job >= 5, test questions >= 100, and accuracy >= 70% but you still stuck at level 0 and you get this message on your dashboard: โ€œSomething else is preventing you from reaching the next level. Keep on working in order to gain experience and level up.โ€ That because you get expelled. Nobody knows the exact amount of how many more jobs needed in order to recover from the expulsions.

Tasks for level 0 contributors are very rare and even when they are available, most of theme won’t count into global accuracy. Therefore, make thing harder to achieve level 1 badge.

Working for low paid tasks just for nothing ๐Ÿ™

Even if the job do count for global accuracy, non level 0 contributors will take advantage and do the job because mostly level 0 jobs are easy and they can boost their global accuracy easily using them. More competitors mean job will finish quickly and you may not be able to work on it before they all taken.

So, CrowdFlower Entrance Exam can overcome this problem. They are unpaid tasks purposely to train new contributors and level them up.

New contributors that happen to know CrowdFlower through ClixSense and NeoBux may not aware of this exam due to fact that it is not available on those two labor channels.

I am not sure if there are already made available entrance exam on those two. Also, I have read somewhre that suggest entrance exam already discontinued. I am not sure about that, let just hope that it is not true.

Where you can take CrowdFlower Entrance Exam?

The way I gain access to entrance exam back then may be not valid anymore.

But someone kind enough to ask CrowdFlower support and share it on ClixSense forum.

So, we can know all the labor channels have entrance exam except on ClixSense, Neobux and CrowdFlower Elite.

Get access to CrowdFlower Entrance Exam

1. Register on any PTC/GPT/Reward site that offer CF tasks (for example, InstaGC).
2. Go to CrowdFlower task section. Each site may use different name, for example NeoBux call it mini job.

3. Open task listing page
4. Click on Entrance Exam.

Please read properly and understand what the quiz want. If you fail the test, no second chance.

Step by step how I access to Entrance Exam

The steps that I follow when I gain access to entrance exam back then.

1. Register Cash Piggy account (if you already know about AdFly link shorterner, Cash Piggy is a PTC site run by the same company.)

Earn money using links

2. Go to Offer >> and click on engage CrowdFlower task.

Click on [Engage]

Update: After CrowdFlower make a few changes on their site, the link that I given in this tutorial might not working properly. So please use InstaGC instead because it is confirmed that InstaGC do have Entrance Exam (only if the exam still exist). Plus, InstaGC also have the option to link account similar to what we are going through these steps.

Link CF account to account on InstaGC

If you insist to follow the original step, please continue reading below:

3. If you have not already have CrowdFlower account, register one using real Facebook account (not fake/dummy one) and complete the registration.

4. Go to CrowdFlower website >> click on your name (on top right) >> Edit Profile. Make sure that channel is set as preferred.

5. Go to or add ?uid=xxxxxxx at the end if the former not working. Replace xxxxxxx with your contributor ID for Personaly channel.

6. Now, you can see the link to take the entrance exam. Remember, you need to have 70% accuracy in order to get level 1 badge.

crowdflower entrance exam

Once you are in level 1:

Read forum such as ClixSense forum or Neobux forum, look for the job ID or by jo name and read review before you start the job. This is important to know wheather the job is broken or not, have unfair correction or not, or the task author will ‘reward’ you with flag for no reason.

If the job have good reviews, go for it and boost your accuracy. If the job ID do not has any review yet from any forum, it best to wait for review, or you can use the ratings to decide (at least 2 and half dots is good to go).

The jobs that I recommend are the receipt jobs (unfortunately, these are on level 2).

“Transcribe Information From A Receipt (_)” – #1 recommended, easiest.
“Find The Quantity And Price For Items. (_)” – little tricky

The jobs are fair, the corrections that I get are fair ones, count for global accuracy and available daily.

Make Money Online With NeoBux

Previously, I had make an article about make money online with ClixSense. In this post, I am going to share another website that very similar to ClixSense which is NeoBux.

NeoBux, like ClixSense is one of the most popular and best PTC sites available on the web and came into existence in 2008, a year after ClixSense.

Make money online with NeoBux

1. Register free Neobux account.

2. Login into your email inbox and verify registration (if necessary).

How to start earning?

Once you have verify your account, it’s time to start making some cash. At NeoBux you can make money online by taking part in:

1. Viewing Advertisers’ Websites

Different pay rates for different type of exposures.

At NeoBux, for each click on ad, you will earn the mentioned amount of money and these bonus as well:

*1 NeoPoint
*4 clicks on AdPrize
*1 ticket for lottery draw

(All of these will be discussed later)

2. Offers

Unlike ClixSense which has section for paid surveys, NeoBux only offer surveys via offer section.

Other than survey, offers include playing flash and Facebook games, free trial signups, download/testing Android/iOS apps/games.

They have two type of offers:

*Coins offer
*NeoPoints Offer

neobux coins neopoints
Kadar tukaran untuk coins dan points

What I dislike about their offers, each completed offer will pending and get credited only after 60 days.

3. AdPrize

For each seen ad, member will get 4 chances to click AdPrize. Highest winning cash is $50 and highest winning value is 1 year of Golden Membership worth $90.

If you win $50 and Golden Membership, you are very lucky. You can check in the forum, there are lucky people post their winning there.

4. Lottery / Lucky draw

For each seen ad, you will get 1 ticket to lucky draw in next hour. 120 lucky members will win $0.50. I have won it once. I was not aware of this feature before I win it.

5. Mini Jobs

Mini Jobs are micro tasks provided by CrowdFlower. I already elaborate about CrowdFlower tasks in my post about ClixSense. So make sure read that as well to know more about CrowdFlower tasks.

NeoBux not the only reward site that offer CrowdFlower tasks. However, each site will give different rewards for working on CrowdFlower tasks via their labor channel.

For example, ClixSense offer (1) Weekly heavy tasker competition – first place winner will win $50, (2) bonus of $5 per accumulated $50, and (3) if you done at least 10 tasks for the day, you will get 7% bonus or 16% if you are an upgraded member.

For NeoBux, you will get $0.15 bonus (or $0.30 for upgraded member) for each $1 earned.

Example of available tasks

6. Invite new members

Invite your friends or even strangers (advertise on your blog etc) and you can get commissions when they earn.

7. Upgrade to Golden Membership

Golden Membership benefits:
*$0.30 bonus per $1 earned from Mini Jobs
*Guaranteed 9 orange fixed ads (4 for standard members) valued at $0.01 each ($0.001 each for standard members)
*Extended ads valued at $0.02 each ($0.015 each for standard members)
*Commissions for referral clicks increased.

How to get Golden Membership

1. Pay full price ($90)

If you afford this, go for it. But, personally I think it’s quite expensive. I can buy 6 years of ClixSense premium membership with one year membership price on NeoBux ($30 biannually x3)

2. Try to win Golden Membership from AdPrize

This option is obviously ridiculous. Because winning it from AdPrize is a matter of luck. But who knows you can be that lucky.

3. Purchase using NeoPoints (30,000 points)

This one I think the most realistic way. Golden Membership can be converted using 30,000 NeoPoints, which mean more less 83 points have to collect per day in order to accumulate that much in a year in order to purchase/renew the membership.

You can get more less 50 points daily just by clicking ads. And chances of winning NeoPoints from AdPrize are higher, so never waste any AdPrizes chances that you have.

Scam Alert & Payment Proof

NeoBux is online since 2008 and still paying their members, instant payout. So, NeoBux is safe.

Minimum cashout is $2 for the first time and increasing $1 for next cashouts till it reached $10.

If you haven’t already hear about ClixSense, it is a reward site that offer commissions to members completing a few things on the website.

(2) Paid Surveys.

(Paid surveys page on ClixSense)

If you are from top tier country, you can get invitation to high paying surveys. But for me, these invitations are good enough.

Make sure you fill in survey profile so that you can get invitation to surveys that you are likely to qualify.

clixsense survey profiler
Please fill in these survey profile

Also make sure you install browser addon/extension to notify available surveys and ads.

If no invitations at the moment, you should not wait for them, you can check for available surveys via daily routers. These routers may be differ from country to country. The good thing about survey routers, you have no limit to try and complete surveys.

(5) Short tasks from CrowdFlower.

(Tasks page on ClixSense)

crowdflower task list
Example of tasks available on task listing page with respective pay rates.

ClixSense is not the only site offering short tasks from CrowdFlower. But you should consider doing it via ClixSense labor channel. Because:

1. One of few channels that offer good pay rates
2. Weekly heavy tasker competition ($50 prize for 1st place)
3. $5 bonus each time you earn $50
4. Crowdflower tasks also requirement for daily checklist bonus (up to 16%, will discussed later about this)

Any new contributor (term for CrowdFlower worker) will start in level 0 (which means tasks are very very rare) but don’t worry, Entrance Exam can level you up instantly.

(6) Website testing and bug finding from Rainforest QA

You will have to test website by following instructions on each step. If the website give different result other than mentioned in instruction that mean you found a bug. You will get 4 Pennies for each step. Refer screenshot below, 50 steps mean $2 for completing the test, however, if you found a bug in the middle of the test, say, at step #20, you only get 20×0.04 = $0.80.

Rainforest pay $0.04 per step.

(7) Bonus: Daily Checklist

If you able to complete daily checklist, you will be rewarded bonus of 7% (16% for upgraded members) of today’s earning after the server resets 12:00 AM midnight – server time)

In order to complete daily checklist, you must:

1. View at least 6 ads
2. Click at least 20 ClixGrid

5. Use ClixAddon for 1 hour (this is automatic if you already installed ClixAddon)
6. Extra bonus: only unlocked if you able to complete the 5 above daily

(8) Optional: Invite people to join

(Affiliate program on ClixSense)

If you just want to make some cash online, getting downlines is optional because you can already earn from above methods.

But, if you want to make huge profits, downlines are the key to that.

You can have unlimited numbers of downlines on ClixSense. Let assume each of your downline will click at least one $0.01 ad daily ($0.002 commission for free member). Let assume you have 5,000 downlines.

5,000 x $0.002 x 30 = $300 per month

If you are upgraded member, $0.004 commission for $0.01 ad view, therefore double the above calculation ($600 per month)

And you know it is impossible for someone to be active daily on ClixSense but only clicking one ad. They will click more ads, performing surveys and tasks etc (up to 10% of their earning), therefore the earning potential much much more than my calculations above.

More realistic example is by this screenshot, taken from affiliate program page.

clixsense top sponsors
clixsense top sponsors

Let use the same calculation, assuming the sponsor (upline) is upgraded member, assuming each reff click one S0.01 ad daily:

51,280 x $0.004 x 30 = $6,153.60 per month

(9) Optional: Upgrade your membership

(Upgraded membership benefits on ClixSense)

You must already aware that upgraded member can earn more.

There is no reason for you not to upgrade because the membership fee is so cheap, $17 annually or $30 biannually.

Reasons for you to upgrade are:

Membership cost
$17 annually / $30 biannually
Daily guaranteed standard ads ($0.01)

Scam Alert and Payment Proof.

ClixSense already online, paying and one of top trusted and most popular PTC website since Feb. 2007 and verified as scam free by millions of happy members including myself.

Here, a screenshot of my very first cashout from ClixSense. (After accumulated $17, I upgraded and right after accumulated $6, I cashout just to check)

clixsense payment proof
My very first payment from ClixSense.


A lot of new users never bother to log in again on second day after they notice they only clicking for Pennies.

I was in the same boat too, I registered ClixSense on January 2016 and gave up a few days after because only clicking for pennies. Then, gave it another try and gave up again for a few weeks. Then I gave it another chance again before I finally know how to make full use of it.

Again, if you just want some cash, surveys and tasks are good enough. But, if you want big profit, getting *a lot* of *active* referrals is a must.

Here, a screenshot of my earning at the time of writing this post. As you can see, I got 0 referral and the earning come 100% from my own effort. I don’t say I satisfy with the earning, but, for just working while watching TV, it’s worth it.

my stats
my stats

Finally, don’t listen to me or any other people before you try for yourself. They say “it’s good, you can get rich quick joining this”, they say “it’s crap, you only clicking for pennies”. Different people, different opinion. Just give it a try OK, It may or may not suits you.
