Projects and Vendors Compatibility: How to Work on Several Projects and Do Not Violate Vendors Conditions? How Much Can You Earn With Leapforce, Lionbridge and Appen When Combining Several Projects?

How Much Can You Earn With Leapforce, Lionbridge and Appen?

earn-money031When you start working for Leapforce, there are a couple of different projects, and the main one is Yukon. All projects have codenames. Yukon is the Google search engine evaluator project. There are also other projects such as Nile which is rating Facebook ads and Truckee which is rating Instagram ads.

Both of these projects pay different amounts depending on where you are located. Yukon and Nile both pay $13.50 USD per hour in USA and Europe  and $6-8 USD per hour in another contries.However, when you begin, and until your quality scores improve, you are only allowed 2 hours to work on Yukon per day. Once your quality scores improve, you are then able to work up to 40 hours per week if you are unrestricted.

Currently Nile and Truckee are new projects and each rater who is approved for this product can work 1 hour per day. This may increase in the future.

So you could make about $2000 per month in USA at this rate if you work the total 40 hours per week, plus being involved in another project such as Nile or Truckee. You do not have to work full time at Leapforce, but you must stay within productivity levels or you can be taken off the project. You can put in 20 hours a month and be OK on productivity.

The bottom line is that it totally depends on how much time and effort you want to put into the job. If your quality scores are high, you will have unlimited access to tasks. In the beginning you might only get a couple of hours per day.

Leapforce doesn’t allow any rater to go over 26 hours per week(in case of Lionbridge it is even less, 20 hours per week).  So there is a limit. Sometimes Leapforce offers bonuses which are currently an extra $3 per hour if you get to a certain amount of hours and tasks. These bonuses can change from time to time.

According to policies of all major vendors (Leapforce, Lionbridge, Appen), raters can’t work at competitor companies due to possible conflict of interests. When it comes to Google rating project, Leapforce and Lionbridge can find duplicate accounts very fast, and as a result, you will lose both accounts.

There are a few exceptions, for instance, you may work at Leapforce or Lionbridge on Google project and apply for the Social Media Evaluation projects at Appen (which are not related to Google e.g.: Instagram or Facebook). When applying for the role, applicants should make sure they never mention that they are in the project at another vendor, the best strategy is to say that you have no related experience.

Keep in mind that rater cannot combine two projects which are related to one customer/platform (Facebook/Instagram). What social media evaluators can do is to work on a search engine evaluation project at Leapforce or Lionbridge (Google) and at Appen on another projects which are unrelated to Google (Falcon Instaads). This strategy has been proven to be safe and some raters have been working on the different projects at different vendors.
