Do you like music ? I mean, do you really like music ? Did you know you can get paid to listen to music? In doing so, you influence the music industry by helping decide what is played on the radio as well as help record producers determine the next big hit. Before I go any further, I should mention that the pay is not that great. But, since you listen to music anyway, why not get a bit of cash in the process?
How does it work ?
Go to one of these sites (indicated below) and set up an account. There are slight differences in the overall process from one company to another, but in a nutshell you listen to a song and write an honest, unbiased review. It is important to write a actual review – not just a quick little “great song, man” type – an honest and thorough review. Your participation helps both radio stations and record producers develop and play songs their audience seeks. Artists are interested in having their songs reviewed as a way to determine how well it will do. The kind of music includes many genres and you get to select your desired music style to rate.
How Much Can I get Paid ?
Each company has their own payment system, and some may “pay” you in the form of points that you can redeem for prizes. Some pay actual cash per review, although not very much initially. The better your review, the better your chance of increasing your payout.
