Updated on August 18, 2016

Let's Get Started!

Slice The Pie isn't for everyone so hopefully this article will help you decide if this is for you or not.

Things you'll need!

  • A good ear for music.
  • An in-discriminatory love/appreciation for music.
  • A little bit of time you can consistently free up for Slice The Pie.
  • Decent typing skills.
  • A basic understanding of giving feedback.
  • (Optional) A whole lot of friends that will sign up underneath you.

Getting started on Slice The Pie.

  1. Signing up for Slice The Pie is really easy. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that they only pay you through PayPal. So, it's very important that you make sure you use an email address that is associated with or can be associated with a PayPal account. After you sign up you cannot change your registered email address, so keep that in mind.
  2. Once you get signed up it's very straight forward on how to get started reviewing. You can review fashion and apps and sometimes get bonuses but the main feature of this site is reviewing music.
  3. You'll get paid something no matter what you decide to type into your review box. You'll probably get discouraged, rather quickly, if you get 1 to 5 cents for each review you do.
  4. This is where your "good ear for music" and "in-discriminatory love for music come in". If you can give good detailed criticism of specific elements of the song you are reviewing, your reviews become a lot more valuable to Slice The Pie. They give you more stars and more money per review. But, since you have no control over what kind of music you review, you need to be able to pump out those high quality reviews no matter what genre of music you are listening to. If you only give good detailed criticisms of "your" kind of music you will damage your "ratings' and will not get paid as much per review.
  5. Since Slice The Pie only pays a modest amount for your reviews and limits you on how many reviews you can actually do, it is essential that you are consistently reviewing music on a regular basis. This is completely up to you but, for me one session a day is not too much and it keeps reviewing music while simultaneously not getting burned out.
  6. Typing skills are important for obvious reasons. If you hate typing or type extremely slow than reviewing music will seem like really "hard work" and Slice The Pie obviously does not pay out enough to compensate your hard work. Although, you can look at this as an opportunity to improve you typing if you so choose.
  7. You can receive around 20 cents per review, but you must make your reviews top notch. Let's be real here. Giving high quality, useful criticism about music that will actually benefit the producers and musicians you are reviewing is a learned skill. Anyone who has a pair of ears can easily let Slice The Pie "know what they think". "Good this, good that" doesn't help anybody being reviewed get anywhere in improving their music. So, it may do you well if you do a little research on the types of reviews Slice The Pie values to most.
  8. Now, this last bit isn't for everyone. But, just in case your wondering how some people are making $10 of $20 a day. Here's my best guess. They have A LOT of referrals! If you have a means of getting people to sign up underneath you then go for it.

Here is my sales pitch to try and get you to use my referral code.

In conclusion...

Slice The Pie is a great way to feel involved in the music industry and slowly over time earn a little bit of money. But, in order to get anything out of it you must review very consistently and every once in a while you will be able to get an extra 10 bucks deposited into your Paypal account. I did not give you any specific figures in this article because your earnings will vary drastically due to many factors(quality of your reviews, the songs you are reviewing, how often you review, cash bonuses you get, your demographics, and your referals) In short, if you approach Slice The Pie with hopes of raking in a significant amount of cash, you will probably get discouraged and give up before you reach your $10 minimum pay out. So, be patient and give next level reviews!
