​Appen – Falcon Post Interest Tagging Project

Appen has several projects within the Falcon Code Name and the latest one I have come across is what is called Post Interest Tagging. It appears that the client is FB and the job doesn’t appear to be very difficult. Although I can personally attest that the quiz they give you to be contracted into the project is tricky and if you don’t go over the short 1 page guidelines and the examples they give you, you will likely fail the quiz.

Post Interest Tagging is a job that has to be done by a human because you are checking the relevance of each post and then deciding on if the post is relevant for the term that you get or not. For example: If you get a post asking you if it has something to do with cars, but it’s a post about trucks, you need to decide if that post would be relevant for people who are interested in cars, but not about trucks. This is tricky though and its most likely that this post would be answered as yes it does have something to do with cars as trucks are automotive. This is where the quiz is tricky and you’ve got to be careful when doing it. You only get one chance to do this quiz, so again, take your time and use the internet.

The quiz is 25 questions and if you miss more than 1-2 questions, you will likely not be offered a position as the management team goes for those who score the very highest on the quiz. The quiz is not timed, but you do have a deadline of when to finish it. The biggest and best advice here that I can give is to use the internet to check and see if the post in question has anything to do with the subject. You always get a subject like ‘Baby Clothes’ and if you aren’t sure what a toddler jumper is, then its best to check the internet and take your time when you are doing the quiz.

Post Interest Tagging gives you 4 hours per day Monday through Friday with no weekend work making it the perfect job for those who don’t want to work on the weekends. You’ve got to put in 4 hours per day though as this is the minimum. Now for this job, the only thing you are doing is answering yes or no to the post. You have a spot for a comment, but it is not necessary to comment on each post. It is important to pay attention to what you are tagging. This can be a very tedious and monotonous job and you would likely tag a couple wrong, and it’s also very likely that you would be removed from the project if you start missing too many. There is also an option to choose ‘Not sure’ but you don’t want to use this option very often either. In some cases, there might be a category that is really obscure and you wouldn’t know how to categorize this. Then you would use this option.

As I mentioned before, this job can get a little boring, but if you don’t mind doing such a job for 4 hours a day, then it can be a perfect at home job for you. As always, if you have any questions about this project, or need some help or advice, please leave a comment or send your question via email.

Appen Connect Truckee Project

instagram-980What is Truckee project?

Instagram has grown to almost 500 million active users. And like other online platforms, Instagram also has ads. This is where the human element comes again into play. For this job it is important to understand which advertisements people want to see in their ads. So you would be looking at your OWN feed and deciding which ads are relevant to you and which ads are not. Some of the things you would gauge the ad on would be relevancy, how useful the ad is to you, if the ad is entertaining, if the ad is offensive or misleading, and how much you want to see the ad in your feed.

The Instagram ads assessor project has a short qualification exam that will ask you some questions based on ads you might see, and what your situation is, and ask you how relevant the ads are. This is the relevancy part of the exam. Once you are in the project you are allowed to work 1 hour per day.

When you do make decisions based on the ads that you are seeing in your feed, you will be given the chance to explain your decision using comments. Comments are an essential part of your task when assessing Instagram ads and are incredibly important. If comments are not meeting the client’s expectations, you could be removed from the project. It is very important to make good comments regarding the ads assessment.

If you are going to take the exam for this project, it is very important that you go over the 17 page rating guidelines very carefully to make sure that you are giving the ads the correct assessment.

Truckee project qualification

Falcon Insta Ads exam consists of two parts. In part one (reverse rating) you will be given 10 raters’ comments and you will select which rating you believe they assigned to the ad in terms of relevance, usefulness, etc. This part is easy and you should have no problem with it.

In part 2 you will be given 10 ads in which you will be asked to rate each ad and provide comments. All ads might be rated from either US location or in a local perspective. When doing part 2 the most important thing is that your overall rating should be in line with your comment.

Here are a few tips on how to write good comments:

  • When someone reads your comment, a reader should be able to understand what an ad is about without seeing the ad itself.
  • Your comment must include at least two rating aspects such as relevance/usefulness/entertainment/offensive/misleading/visually appealing.
  • Your comment must include words which indicate the level of each aspect (somewhat/vey/not at all).
  • Based on your comment a reader should be able to understand your overall rating.
Additionally, you may consider and explain in your comment:
 
  • Whether this is the first time you’ve seen this ad or whether it’s a repeat.
  • How you feel about the advertiser.
  • Did the likes and comments influence you?

Make sure you understand of the Overall rating of ‘Definitely don’t want to see’ in order to rate an Ad as a ‘Definitely don’t want to see’, the Ad would need to have a strong negative impact on you.

Keep in mind that only one attempt to take this exam is allowed. Within a few days after exam due date you will be notified about results. If the exam is passed, then you will receive instructions how to create an account with Appen Global and link to Payoneer.

How to stay in Truckee project  for a long time?

The most common reasons for contract termination are low quality of service, productivity, or not meeting contract conditions regarding providing rating service at least 5 days per week. In order to stay on the project for an extended time, your quality feedback score should be not lower than 2.6 (you can see this score on your quality feedback which is sent by Appen on a regular basis). Also your productivity RPH should be not lower than 15 (the number of tasks/time invoiced). Ideally your quality score should be 3 and your RPH 20. Keeping good quality scores can guarantee your continued participation on the program.
