For like minded-souls.

There are plenty of sites for `coupon-clipping` and frugal living

Hands down the community.

It's a funny one; you have the upbeat positive mood and the sense of community you often find on smaller forums. In my experience when they grow that usually diminishes - i'm yet to see that here.

Yes, there's still plenty of room for this place to growth, but i genuinely think the good core is here to stay.

aye

Literally everyone helps everyone on here and it's a sight to behold when you come from the likes of Facebook groups where it's all short one line replies!

I like the sense of community and seeing regular names pop up as it makes me feel like I am getting to know folk on here. Lots of positivity too!

Yep I totally agree. Some forums are very sniffy and totally unfriendly. This one is so welcoming and helpful. Sometimes I wonder though if Jon does anything in his life apart from reading and responding to all the threads on the forum!

lol part of the job!

The site won't run itself so if I'm not posting on here I'm working on content for other sites and blogs to link back to here or prepping social media work or working on blog posts for here!

i won't lie that doing it all around a 30hour a week job is still knackering but the feedback I get on here over PMs, Twitter, Instagram, Emails about how people have really turned their life around financially or been able to stay at home and bring their kids up as they are now earning more from home than if they went back to their jobs make it all worth while!!

I’d been tempted for a long while to try Matched Betting, but like most people I always thought it was too good to be true. It was actually reading through this forum that made me take the plunge and try PA; it’s one of the best things I’ve done. So thank you Jon & the forum :)

This site is brilliant because questions are answered really quickly and there's so much advice. I discovered task apps thanks to the moneyshed and made some decent money. Unfortunately these dried up for me, so have concentrated on the matched betting and again the information has been first class. If I asked a question it was answered very promptly. Jon and his team are very welcoming and that's why I return to moneyshed

I've not been on the forum for long but I can already tell that I will keep coming back at least once a day for the foreseeable future.
This forum made me feel like there is a whole community of like minded people and they have tons of helpful advice and knowledge ;)

Thanks for the kind words. It’s great to hear people getting stuff out of a site that’s still 6 years strong!!

I'm back again! It's a nice place to be and everyone is friendly. Been in other forums which are very rule heavy and full of idiots or horrible people. It's refreshing to be back :)

What keeps you using this forum instead of one of the 1001 Facebook groups that's out there about earning money online?

I don't use Facebook, never have, never will and so this type of forum is the only kind that meets my preferences.

For me it's the quality of the opportunities shared on here. There is possibly more traffic elsewhere but most of it is noise in comparison. Plus as Queen Jess said most posters seem to genuinely want to help/support.

Ironically traffic has never been higher than this year but getting to go from lurker to poster still proves a challenge. I think the reality is that a lot of people just like to use TMS in a passive manner and take part in all the earning opportunities but not contribute.

I may need to address this in the next few months but not sure how

A few member-only threads or areas should do the trick. But isn't high traffic/hits better for you than forcing people to register? Or maybe not, I don't know what your business model is, there doesn't seem to be too many ads on here come to think of it.

Or you can just set things up so that 'guests' can only see 1 page of a thread or half a page and then will need to register in order to see the rest

aye, my concern about that approach where people need to register to see say, more than 10 pages is if this can have a knock-on effect with GoogleBot being able to crawl the site
