Get Paid to Review Music: STP Case Study Pt 2

It's been five days since I signed up to Slice the Pie to see if I can get paid to review music. The site claims you can review music for money, and I've taken a few notes to about how the site works, and I will let you know first and foremost that it seems like a solid way to get yourself a little bit of extra cash.

My balance is up to about $7.50, and I've done 3 sessions where I made roughly $2.50 each. I didn't spend a half hour at any of those sessions and doing the math with my average payment per post I saw that working super efficiently by finishing your reviews 30 seconds after the minimum 90 seconds of listening (total of 2 mintues), you can make about $10.50 an hour reviewing music for money on this site.

Now I want to take the time to recommend you don't take that number and set out to grind getting paid to review music and turn it into a 9 to 5. I highly recommend the site so far for how the payment increases as I level up and how close I am to a payout already, but I also recommend that you just do it casually. Aim for cashing out 1 time per week.

That's 10 dollars a week that you didn't have before, and if you think about it, that's a domain per week if you're the kind of person who likes to build sites over a week, move on to the next, and maintain them as you go.  Reviewing music for money is awesome, but it can also get a bit boring and repetitive. You don't want to burn yourself out, and you don't want to spend all your time in one-off things like this. Use the site to cushion your expenses while earning money online, don't use it as one of your main income streams.

Besides, while they will pay you as well as you can really expect for your time reviewing music, I'm sure they don't want people doing it full-time. There probably is some built in system limit that I myself haven't reached to confirm. Do it for your domain or hosting costs, do it for an extra 10 bucks for something else, but get paid to review music in moderation. Spend some time for them, let them spend some money for your time, and use the rest of your working time on building your own blogs, sites, forums, or hubs/lenses. Let that ten dollars buy you more time.

I have yet to reach my payout, but I am sure I will within the next couple of days. I'll buy yet-another-domain guilt free, work the next week on building yet-another site and see if it earns itself an early renewal on its domain. Repeat the process, get paid to review some more music, buy another domain, and do it again.

I recommend this site so far for getting paid to review music, and we'll see how I feel about it after the withdraw funds process. If you want to join up and give it a try, I recommend as always that you use my invite at the opening of this post for the benefit that my active invites will are able to participate in the private section of the forums. You will definitely want to be a part of my private forums and become a part of my team.
