Top 7 Ways to earn money online by just listening to Audio

Hey, What’s going on?

Do you love music?

Personally, I love listening music!


Every Single Day we hear different songs, but what if I can say you will be paid for doing so. 

Sounds cool, right!

Today, we will talk about on how to earn money online just by listening to music and audio files.

Let’s dive in..

1. Slice the Pie


It is the largest paid review site where your task is to review the songs and you will be paid for that.

All you need to do is listen to the available song and give a short review on it.

That’s it!

You can review songs, fashion items, commercials, etc on this website. The amount of money you can earn per review depends upon your star rating. The more rating you have the more you can earn. Your rating depends upon the quality review you provide.

You can earn up to 4-5 cents per review, if you have a Gold ranking you can earn up to 15 cents per review.

Actually no, it is true that you will be paid more as compared to slice the pie but the availability of songs is very less compared to slice the pie.

You will get around 2-3 songs to listen per day or sometimes not even that.

Anyhow, you can able to earn some little extra cash, which can buy you a Starbucks coffee.

  1. Slice the Pie’s payout is not as good as it used to be. They only pay between 1 to 2 cents per review for entry level reviewers.
