My absolute favourite ways to make money online

I quit my job in 2013 to work for myself full-time, as my regular readers will know. I’m really proud that I have created a job that I can do, at home, working for myself. I’ve always wanted to be self-employed and now I am really am living my dream! I am earning a full-time income and have been able to have some wonderful holidays, and other treats, for my family over the last year in particular using the money that I have earned. I’m also debt free – which is a wonderful feeling, and feel the most financial aware that I have ever been. I love being able to make money online!

If you’re someone who doesn’t have a lot of time, or a lot of energy to dedicate, there are still some fantastic ways that you can make money online.

My absolute favourite ways to make money online

Matched betting – Play the bookies at their own game and make yourself a guaranteed profit. I even made £15,000 in just 4 months! I once had a single day where I made £7,906.12 – there is screenshot proof too!

Paid surveys – I love getting paid for giving my opinion. I even wrote a Survey Bible over on The Money Shed.

Mystery Shopping – Get paid to eat lunch – who doesn’t love free food?!

You can also look at money saving as another fantastic way to increase your family budget. You can save money on your shopping, sell off those old gift cards and much more. I’m a big fan of meal planning, batch cooking and using my slow cooker to save money and time. Nothing beats avoiding the takeaway again with a nice dinner that you prepared first thing in the morning when you had the motivation!

MarketForce Mystery Shopping

MarketForce is a mystery shopping company and they will pay you for completing mystery shopping assignments. Recently I have had several requests for mystery shopping companies to use. Personally I am only actually signed up with a few and MarketForce is my main one.
