1. Install Tampermonkey, a browser add-on required to run MTurk userscripts that boost efficiency.
  2. Assess the potential profitability of HITs using TurkOpticona browser extension that displays Requester ratings, useful for discovering fair paying HITs.
  3. Track efficiency using MTurk HIT Database Mk. II — an MTurk userscript maintained by feihtality that allows you to set milestones, track earnings, generate reports, and more.
  4. Monitor and collect HITs using JR Mturk Panda Crazy — an MTurk userscript by JohnnyRS that allows you to manage Requester, Group and HIT IDs.
  5. Build your collection of Worker Qualifications. Monitor a search for ‘qual’ on MTurk and complete Qualification Tests and HITs to prospect for future private HITs.
  6. Use a gaming mouse that has at least five programmable buttons. This will be useful to record keystrokes, such as those used to switch tabs and submit HITs. The one I use: Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse
