Survey sites are a great way to make a few bucks during your free time. I’m a fan of survey sites myself, there’s just one small thing I dislike about them: they’re not very exciting. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not knocking it. But it is what it is.
If you’re also looking for something to sustain your interest, I suggest you try review sites. Review sites require a bit more effort on your part, but they’re an awesome way to share your opinions.
My interest was piqued when I heard about Slicethepie. No, it’s not a baking-related site. On Slicethepie, the main review categories are music and fashion, but more categories are being added. The site makes it a point to emphasize the music and fashion categories. I happen to be into both, which is why I signed up as soon as I could.
Is Slicethepie as cool as their review categories? Read my review to find out!
The site was launched in 2007, first as a music review site. They evolved to include a wide range of categories, but music is still its forte. Slicethepie gets reviews for thousands of independent artists every month.
They now have over 2 million reviewers and have distributed over a million dollars in earnings. The feedback provided by these reviewers helps artists, designers, producers, and labels make more informed decisions.
How to Earn
Simple. You log in then choose a category you’d like to check out.
If you pick music, you can start listening to tracks (at least 90 seconds per song). Write down what you liked and disliked about the song. Be specific: comment on specific aspects of the song, including lyrics, instrumentation, production, and the like. Once you’re done writing, assign a star rating (out of a possible ten stars) then hit submit.
If you pick fashion, you’ll check out pictures of clothing and collections. Other than that, review process is the same as music: write down your review, assign a star rating, then hit submit.
How Much Can I Make?
Your earning capacity is directly related to the number of reviews you can write. To make more money, you’ll have to make more reviews.
Slicethepie doesn’t use a points system. Each review earns you an amount of money. I like that. I don’t need to make mental calculations in my head converting points to their real-money equivalent.
The pay per review isn’t much, only one cent. But more prolific reviewers who receive high ratings from peers can have their rates bumped up from 10 to 14 cents per review (more on that later).
You won’t make big bucks writing reviews on Slicethepie. But I honestly never intended to do that. That’s the thing about review and survey sites: they’re good for making a few bucks to supplement your income. Keep that in mind and you won’t be disappointed.
Slicethepie only pays through cash. It’s nice to have gift card options, but cash is king. Payouts are made through PayPal and there is a $10 minimum withdrawal.
How to Boost Your Earnings
If the pay rates are a bit too low for you, you can use the following methods to boost your earnings:
On Slicethepie, you create reviews, but other members can also rate your reviews. Well-written, thoughtful reviews will naturally gain higher star reviews from peers. When you get enough good ratings from other members, Slicethepie will assign larger bonus payments to your review.
You can earn bonus payments whenever your referrals submit their own reviews. But make sure you give them your referral code, so the bonus gets sent to you. You can refer as many friends as you want!
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
Slicethepie is legit! You won’t make a living from your earnings, but that’s not the point with this site. I had an awesome time listening to music, checking out clothing collections, and writing reviews. Slicethepie is super fun, and I highly recommend it!
