By in Make Money. Updated November 2014.

Wanna earn some actual real life money, just by sitting at home in your pants listening to music? Who are we kidding, of course you do! pieeatingSlicethepie is a music review website that pays you (yes, in cash) for sharing your honest opinions on new unsigned artists.

You also have the opportunity to earn even more dosh by referring your friends and earning commission from their reviews too. What better way to make money than discovering awesome new music and sharing your views on it?

Typically you can expect to earn 6-10p per review you write on the site and 10% commission on your referrals, so while you won’t get rich over night, it’s not a bad income if you’re doing something you enjoy anyway.

You might think it’s sounds like an ace idea to try and rig the system somehow to get more money. Sadly for you, however, Slicethepie are constantly on the lookout for unnatural useage and you’ll promptly get banned. Play fair!

Here’s our whistle-stop essential guide to getting your account balance off the ground and putting together your first few reviews.

Writing your first review in 3 steps

  1. Get an account

    First things first, click here to register for your Slicethepie ‘Scout’ account.

    Go through the sign up steps which will get a quick profile of you and what kind of music you’re into.

    Make sure you use the email associated with your Paypal account! Once you’ve opened your account you’re ready to start earning straight away.


  2. Review a track

    You’ll be streamed a track at random to listen to. Review the music in the text box below the player and rate it out of ten using the slider.

    What should I write?

    It’s important to write a good, honest and full review of the tracks as this will boost your ratings on the site, which means you’ll earn more cash. Write lengthy, detailed and constructive reviews to make sure you earn the most money.

    Reviews go straight to artists so try to give feedback which will help them improve their music, commenting on a number of different aspects of a song.

    Money earned for reviews will be added to your account balance and you can see how much you’ve earned in your session too.

  3. Cash out!

    As soon as you’ve earned a minimum of $10, you’ll be able to withdraw your earnings straight to PayPal. Then all you have to do is work out how to spend the money 🙂

Earn money from your friends’ reviews too

If you want to maximise your earnings, or if you’re simply not up for reviewing yourself but would love some extra pocket money, then Slicethepie can help with that too.

Once you’ve registered, you’ll be able to refer friends to the site using your unique link and earn money from the reviews THEY submit.

To find your link, just hit ‘Invite Friends’ in the Scout or MySlice tabs:
