How to Get Audible Badges

Generally, there are three levels of audible badges.  In each badge category, you can reach the three levels through listening to audiobooks. That means the fifteen badges have three levels. In each badge, you will find silver, gold, and platinum levels. The hours you take to listen to the audiobooks will determine which level you will be placed. That means the more you listen, the higher your chances of getting to the highest level.

Let’s discuss more on the levels.

 Silver Level

The silver level is known to be the most manageable level amongst others. It is the level that you are supposed to complete a thirty-hour-long audiobook at least.  Most audiobook listeners find it easy to earn at this level.

Gold Level

At the gold level, it is intermediate. You are supposed to complete a sixty-hour-long audiobook. That means you must work double or rather to listen to two times more from the silver level.

Platinum Level

It is known to be the most difficult of all. At this level, you are supposed to complete a seventy-eight- hour’s long audiobook. At this level, audiobook listeners must work extra hard to earn their badges.

Where Will you find Your Audible Achievements Status?

For example, in some badges, you must listen to an audiobook at night for eight straight hours. Others require you to share many times, Bookmark or visit the page severally. So, if you want to earn more, go to the badges you wish to earn from and follow the instructions.

Some Important Facts/Points about Audible Badge Collection
