The question I asked myself every day for many, many years; “How can I make money online from home?”. Yes, it was literally every single day.
Growing up, all I ever wanted to do was to be able to have a way of earning a little bit of side money from home on the internet. I still wanted a full career, however, I just could not understand how it was so hard to find a genuine way to make money online. I highlight genuine for a reason – each article I read just seemed to be a scam promising you the earth.
Over time I realised there wasn’t really anything that would generate enough money to value the time spent – completing 1 hour long surveys for £2 wasn’t really my cup of tea!
A few years on, I was introduced to a term ‘matched betting’ by a friend as a way (I quote) of “being able to guarantee to make money from betting”, and of course, my immediate reaction was – SCAM. Who wouldn’t? And this was the reaction I had when my own friend introduced it to me!
To cut a long story short, I didn’t believe it for months and slowly became more intrigued as my friend was making around £800 – £1,000 each month from home. As I started to see it happening, I then questioned “is this even legal?”.
Ultimately, I was wrong, my friend was right. Matched betting was genuinely the answer to my childhood aim of being able to make a good amount of money from home (and yes, it’s legal). Five years on, I have made an average of £12,781 per year from matched betting. For some, that is an annual income! For me, I introduced this alongside my full-time job and it has since allowed me to get a new car, several holidays I would not have dreamed of with my children, and boost my savings!
I wanted to share my journey and thoughts here, as I went through many years of searching every week on Google to find a genuine method to make money online from home that wasn’t a scam. Matched betting is honestly a 100% genuine way to earn money – whether this is as a part-time income or full-time. For those that would like to find out more about matched betting, I wrote a full matched betting guide that you can view.
Matched betting is hands down the quickest way to make risk-free money online – and the best thing is, it’s relatively easy – so anyone can do it! You can make guaranteed profits from essentially taking advantage of the free bets that bookies offer as offers. By matching the bet with a betting exchange, you can remove the free bet as profit for yourself – often up to £200! Then just think how many different bookies there are, as well as the multiple offers they offer throughout the year.
