Hi Everyone

My name is Alisa and I like everyone else am looking to earn a bit of extra cash to top up my income. I have tried a couple of survey sites (Inbox pounds being the latest one) but I find that you give a lot of information and then it says you are not a match, this happened on at least 5 surveys that I did and I found it really frustrating.

I'm hoping this forum will give me direction :)

Hey @Alidye69

Fantastic to have you on here and posting!

If all you’ve done so far is surveys I would say a good starting point would be the beginners guide to earning online toolkit as there’s £1000+ a month worth of work in there and next to none of it is surveys!!

Hi people,

Have been a lurker on the forum but wanted to start connecting with this great community. I'm not new to making extra income online, have been doing so for the past couple of years but now goal is to a) share what I have learnt and b) move on from making extra income to running my own businesses. My motivation and the reason I found out about making money online was that I was being massively underpaid at work, and I thought if I can find methods to supplement my income until I could get a new job then I would be happy in the end. Well, I have since got that new job, and I'm no longer underpaid, I have just realised I'll never be happy working for someone else. So I have decided to start an all encompassing financial blog, where I can share what I have learned about making extra money and also document my journey in online business. I am currently working on the site and will start a progress threat in the blog section eventually, hope to see you there.

Hey James!

Fantastic to have you on here and posting!

Sounds like you are fully in 'blog mode' - can't wait to see the finished product!!

I left my full-time job in December and now run my websites (such as this one!) full time and all that that entails so have only just started feeling like a proper 'small business' myself!

Hello everyone

I'm Nick from Leicester, I've been interested in making money online for a long time but to be honest I only found this site when looking for a forum to share my referal code for an electricity and gas supplier I have just switched to. I have always wanted to find a secondary income without having to invest too much money, i do work full time but have time in the evenings to give this a go. I previously tried comping and a few surveys but very unsuccessfully. This looks like a great place to share ideas and I will hopefully make a positive contribution.

Do you have a ball park figure for how much you are looking to earn each month?

Yes £100-150 would be fantastic initially. But I guess it's dependant on how much time I can dedicate to it. I have just read your toolkit and it is really informative. I'm particularly interested in the matched betting. Thank you

Hi, I’m Abi and I’m 20. I care for my Mum full time and suffer with anxiety myself so finding a suitable job is a struggle for me. I’d love to be self-sufficient and start making my own money from home.

Hi Abi and welcome. I have anxiety as well so you're definitely not alone. I'm sure you'll find lots of good ways to make money here. It takes a few months of trial and error to find what works for you though so don't be too hard on yourself while you're still learning!

Hey everyone!

I'm Jenny and I have a website called Miss Matched Betting that is aimed at getting newbies started with matched betting.

After a few nudges from Jon over on Twitter :D, I've finally got myself onto this forum and hopefully will be able to learn a thing or two about other ways to earn money from home.

I've been matched betting for about 2 years now and initally got into it after a period of being practically housebound due to an illness (I'm much better now, don't worry! :)). I absolutely love the fact that matched betting exists and that pretty much anyone can do it and I am really enthustastic about getting other people into it, that could really use the extra income. I'm really excited about getting involved on the matched betting forums and helping everyone out!

I'll also be on the lookout for the forums that can help me out with the tech/monetisation side of my website, not sure I'm quite as tech savvy as I like to think I am :D:D, but I'm always willing to learn.

Hopefully will be speaking to you all very soon.

Jenny ;)

Hi all,

I'm Becky: I've been a lurker here until deciding I should probably get involved. :) I enjoy the process of saving money and I found this site when I was making sure I was using all the good cashback apps! I've started doing other simple tasks by recommendation from this forum (like Jobspotter) and am looking to branch out. As a few people have said, I also suffer from anxiety, so would like to do some of the missions/tasks from apps like StreetBees/BeMyEye but scared that I might look really strange doing it/be challenged by the store! :O

Anyway, hello!

Hey Becky,

Fantastic to have you on here and posting! Great to see you come out of lurker mode ;)

The anxiety around doing your first few missions is something EVERYONE has had to deal with as it's very much a fear of the unknown. Like you said about being challenged by someone in the store..

I haven't done 'task app' work for years now but I did it for about 2+ years and must have been challenged maybe twice in all that time. On both occasions, I just said I was taking photos for the girlfriend as she wasn't sure what she wanted me to buy etc.

Once you get into the swing of doing the tasks it's VERY easy money and far more than surveys or clicksites or any of that sort of stuff! And as always the more you do something the more normal it all becomes!

If you have any questions please do just ask on here, everyone on here just wants to help you earn the most amount of money as possible so take advantage of this extremely friendly community!!

Hi Jon,

Thanks so much for the kind words and advice! There's a local task near me today that just requires pictures of some displays so might give it a go. :)
