Expected pay: nominal

Husl $core: $

Where: National

Requirements: a phone or computer that can allow you to listen and rate music on the site


You can earn points by listening to and reviewing music, but the points aren’t worth much.  With Hit Predictor, you’re likely to earn the equivalent of 3 to 5 cents for every song you listen to. If you assume it takes five minutes to listen and rate each song, that gives you an expected hourly wage of 36 – 60 cents. And, according to people who have tried the system, those points can only be turned in for pretty worthless items.

Given that our rating system is all about whether a  side hustle is going to pay you more than minimum wage, after expenses, you can understand why this opportunity gets our lowest ranking. That said, if you really love music and don’t mind that you’re going to work all day to earn a $5 gift card, happy trails.

If you go to job boards, such as Indeed or Glassdoor, and plug in your interests, you are likely to find music-related positions that will pay a decent wage.
