Advantages: Excellent way to earn money
Disadvantages: 5 minute slot at the beginning of every hour where reviews are unable to submit.
Having been a slicethepie member for around 4 months now, i dont think there has been a normal day that i have been able to resist from visiting the site. It is, admittedly, now part of my daily routine.
FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO EARN MONEY:
Basically, for those of us who love music, it is our dream come true. All you have to do is review music tracks, and you get paid for every single one reviewed. Baring in mind the recommended amount to write per review is only around 3-4 lines (taking roughly a minute per review), the earning potential is massive!
Not only is it extremely addictive, but it is also a great source for earning money, and with the time and dedication, you can earn LOTS of money. In my first month, i earnt around £90 from scouting. From there, my earnings graduaully progressed, and it became easier and easier to build up the pennies.
I'm now a four star scout, and have earnt myself £325.79...This sum is only going to keep on increasing! You may be asking yourself "what on earth does four star scout mean?" Well i will now explain...
Please note these are only rough guidelines, and depend on the accuracy, length and meaningfulness of each review you submit.
1 star scout: This is given to you straight away, and you are able to earn 3p per every track reviewed.
2 star scout: Given after around 50 reviews, enabling you to earn 5p per every track reviewed.
3 star scout: Given after around 250 reviews, enabling you to earn 7p per every track reviewed.
4 star scout: Given after around 1500 reviews, enabling you to earn 9p per every track reviewed.
5 star scout: Given after around 10000 reviews, enabling you to earn 12p per every track reviewed.
Some of these figures may sound daunting, and granted, it is very hard to reach 5 star status, as of yet slicethepie only has one member that has managed to reach this status. But, with time and effort, these figures are more than reachable. Juggling work and homelife, in the past 4 months i have managed to review 4023 tracks.
There is also a chance to take part in both the virtual trading and the 'real' trading. This is basically paying amounts for contracts in the bands/artists that have won the showcase on slicethepie, and seing whether the prices go up or down. Be warned, this is gambling, and only UK residents over the age of 18 are allowed to participate in this. Virtual trading is however, open to all. And if you manage to make it to the top ten you are in with a chance of making a couple of quid.
Minimum withdrawal rate is just £5.00, and this doesnt take long to reach. One thing to bare in mind...You must have a paypal account in order to withdraw money. Must be 18 or over to open an account with paypal. If you're too young, simply get family or friends to set up an account in their name and give you the money manually.
FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO RAISE MONEY TOWARDS THEIR BAND/ARTIST OR JUST WANT GENERAL FEEDBACK ON TRACKS:
This site gives you a great oppurtunity to gain feedback on tracks and get a representation of what the majority think. It is free to submit your songs into each scout room, and on average you get around 50-100 reviews per each track submitted (it is compulsary to submit 3 tracks). You are then given a rating out of ten from each 'scout', should this rating be around 7 or over, you can be assured that you have a very good chance of making it to the showcase.
Should you be lucky enough to make it to the showcase, you will then be in with a chance of winning £15000 to go towards your album. All of these funds are raised by STP members, through the purchase of "backstage passes" (£5 each), which displays the amount of faith they have in your music.
You should be warned though; there are a few time wasters on slicethepie, who are solely in it for the money. Thus leaving meaningless reviews. Be assured though, STP have a strict way of seiving through reviews, and if they do find any scouts of this sort, they are banned immediately. Another thing to bare in mind is some of the reviews left can be very harsh, if you're not ready to be criticised about your music, this really isnt the site for you.
Anyway, i have rambled rather alot...
But i would definitely recommend this site to all...There are no age restrictions and it's a fun and friendly site. If ever you have queries simply enter the forum, its a welcoming place and there are always members there to help you out and answer your questions. If they are unable to answer them, simply email the Slicethepie team, and they will get back to you within the day.
Definitely 10/10 for the site.
Summary: Brilliant site, definitely one of the best, if not THE best that i have come across.
