Review music on Slice The Pie and get paid. Invite your friends and take advantage of Slice The Pie’s referral program and earn passive income.
What you see is what you get with Slice the Pie. Listen to 90 seconds of music, submit a real review, and get paid via paypal. That really is all there is to it. A “real review” means a genuine thought out review. Use words related to music and write more than three sentences and you’re good. Increase your base pay by increasing your rank. Increase your rank with a combination of quality and quantity. The more you write, the better you write, the more you get paid.
Market research. Um… that’s it. Artists/Labels want to know what you, the people, think of their music so they can tailor it to a broader audience to sell more records and make a ton of money. Much more than they spend on the research. No mystery, no Wizard of Oz behind the curtain. In fact, no curtain.
Keep plugging away!
If you’re only making a small amount per review, do not get discouraged, that will increase as long as you keep plugging away. It will not take long at all. Just keep in mind you’re getting paid to listen to music. What’s better than that? I would make $.07 on a review and a rare $.14 now and then. In a few weeks, $.14 became the norm and now I get no less than $.20 a review with $.32 being my highest reward to date (9/21/2012). That’s $8-$12.40 an hour if you do the math.
(Know that these payouts don’t get locked in. I was gung-ho out of the gate and was reviewing non-stop at one point and that may be why I saw a steady increase nearly each review. This is not typical. You can definitely drop back down.)
Those are the pro’s, what are the cons?
This is a program that you can lose interest in temporarily because sometimes what you wrote for one song applies to another. Slice The Pie will prevent you from writing the same review for multiple songs (or reviews that are too similar). This can get frustrating. What I do is just swap out Slice The Pie for other programs like PostLoop (get paid to post in forums) for example. When I get tired of one, I go back to the other. It won’t be (for some at least) an everyday program.
