Advantages: Earn so extra money listening to music and giving your opinion
Disadvantages: This site does have technical problems from time to time
If you like listening to music and like earning a little extra money writing reviews online then Slicethepie is the site for you,as this website allows you to earn some cash whilst reviewing music tracks.
It is very simple you listen to a song then when it has finished you write down your opinion,you will be paid more money the longer and more descriptive your review is,this is a fantastic site to pick up a little extra cash and a way for musicians to get there work reviewed and rated.
Once you have completed the very easy sign up process where you will be asked to confirm your email address,you will then become a slicethepie scout,where it will be your job to critique on other people's music,and the more effort you put in to your writing then the more money you will receive.
Slicethepie is actually a British company but for some reason it pays its writers in dollars not pounds,you will have to earn 10 dollars before being able receive your money through your Paypal account,and you will need a Paypal account if you want to earn on this site as it is the only way in which to receive your money,and it will take one to five days to receive payment once requested.
You can expect to be paid between 0.05 cents and 00.40 cents for your reviews and the money you receive will depend and lots of factors such as your experience level,your member rank and the quality and length of your reviews,it is not going to make you rich but it does add up nice over time and I have had lots of money in my Paypal account thanks to this site.
This site is completely free to join and you need no special skills or work experience as this site is looking for a opinion from the wider general public,although the money is what really keeps me writing on Slicethepie it is also nice knowing you are giving valuable feed back to musicians, and also artists who get the highest ratings from us writers do get the chance to be financed which will help set them up for some commercial success inside the music industry,so you are playing a small part in setting up a artists career.
There is now a referral scheme which was set up on Slicethepie in February 2012,which gives you the chance to earn even more money,you will receive 10 per cent of the earnings of every new member who joins up under your name, for a year but is does not come out of the members money as Slicethepie pays it,another great reason to join Slicethepie.
You can refer friends from Facebook,twitter or email or by using your unique referral link which you can find by clicking refer friends.
You have three pages on Slicethepie,Scout,Playlists and Myslice,Myslice is where you can find all your information on reviews you have written and how much you have been paid for them reviews and this is where you can also find your referrals and how much they have made for you as well.
Playlists is where you can make your own personal playlists of the songs you have most enjoyed listening to on Slicethepie and is a great way for you to acquire some new music to listen too,and Scout is where you write your reviews and where you can check your progress on the site by checking out your Rank,Experience energy levels.
Rank: Is a measure on how good your reviews are and basically the higher your rank then the higher your payment.
Experience: Experience points are given for each review you submit,the better the review the more experience points you will recieve,and once your experience bar is full you will go up a level.
Energy: When your energy levels run out you can not write any more reviews until your energy returns,but to be honest I have spent lots of time on this site at time's and have never had my energy run out so I wouldn't really worry to much about this.
It has be known for Slicethepie to give out some special offers,and for a while I would get the chance once a fortnight to review for Slicethepie Catwalk, I would receive 20 cents for each very,very short and brief review of a fashion item,they just wanted to know weather or not I liked each item of clothing they showed me and I could earn 15 dollars for a few hours work doing this which I was more than happy to do,so there are other opportunities open to Slicethepie writers.
This site started back in 2007 and is still going strong six years later,if you really want to earn a descent bit of cash you need to write fast and descriptive reviews,if you only write a few lines you will be lucky to get ten cents for your review,so put a little effort in,I write about nine or ten lines and I am usually paid around 20-25 cents a review and you can bulk your money up quite quick with them payments.
This is a site I would certainly recommend to people earning a little extra cash online,it is fun to do and one that is especially good for music lovers,when signing up I suggest you pick lots of genre's so you never run out of songs to review,so you can earn more money.

Summary: This is a great site to earn some extra money on,and certainly one for music lovers.
