How to make money listening to music

Listening to music can be a wonderful and enjoyable activity, but have you ever considered that you might also be able to make money while doing it? In this article, we’ll explore five ways that you can do just that.


By following these steps, you can make money listening to music on the side!


How to make money listening to music


listen to popular songs

Look for a site like Spotify or iTunes. They both offer a free trial that allows you to listen as much as you want with no commitment. As soon as your trial ends, you can continue listening for $9.99/month, which is about the cost of Netflix and Hulu combined.


You can also download songs from these sites onto your phone or computer for offline use, allowing you to listen when there's no internet connection available (such as on a flight). When it comes to making money, you'll need to find out what songwriters are getting paid.


There are four main types of payment: publishing royalties, streaming royalties, mechanical royalties and performance royalties. Publishing royalties are paid whenever someone plays a song in public; mechanical royalties come into play whenever someone copies an original recording and sells it; performance rights happen every time someone publicly performs the song (examples include DJs playing dance music at weddings); streaming rights come into play whenever someone uses their online service to stream the song (for example when people tune into Pandora or other online radio stations)


get recommendations from friends

If you want to listen to music for a living, there are many ways you can do it. One way is by becoming a DJ and hosting parties or events.


Another option is becoming a radio personality and hosting your own show. You could also be someone's personal DJ or travel the world as a live performer. However you decide to go about making money from music, it takes dedication and hard work in order to achieve success.


As with any job, the more education that one has, the better their chances of getting hired will be.


use technology like TuneWiki

TuneWiki is a free, mobile app that lets you listen to your favorite songs without ads. You can also get paid for it! TuneWiki offers a new social media platform for those who want to engage with the world through entertainment.


The idea is simple: When you're at the gym and you want to jam out, turn on TuneKiwi and start sharing your workout playlist with the world. Or when you're in class and your favorite song comes on, just tap 'Share' and let everyone know what's playing through your headphones!


On top of that, every time someone listens to one of your shared playlists or audio tracks on their phone or tablet via TuneWiki, you'll earn credits.


create playlists

Creating playlists is a great way to share your music and get paid for it!

* Create your playlist on Spotify, Deezer, or any other streaming service.

* Share the link on social media with a brief description of the playlist.

* You could also share it through email lists or with friends who are interested in hearing new music. The good thing about this one is that you can do it while doing other things like driving or cooking dinner.


become an influencer or critic

It is possible to make a living off of being a critic. In order to do so, you must have expertise in your field and be able to articulate your thoughts clearly and concisely. To become an influencer, you need a following- either on social media or through some other means- that will engage with what you're posting.


Either way, the key is to find something that aligns with your interests and skillset, then put in the time and effort necessary for success. You can get started by looking up blogs from people who share your niche and reading their articles, posts, or stories.


The best part about both options is that you are doing what you love!


promote your content through social media

#1. find out what you're good at, and where your interests lie.

#2. What can you do well? If you're not sure, take some time to think about it. Are there certain things that come easily to you? What are your strengths? This can be anything from drawing to writing or even playing an instrument. Once you know what your strengths are, start thinking about the ways they could be used in a business setting.

#3. Figure out how this skill will translate into a marketable product or service (i.e., what do people pay for?)
