One of the most frequent emails that arrives in my inbox goes a little something like this:
I’m really interested in taking up matched betting but I’m concerned about its sustainability.
How long can it really last?
Surely there are only a limited amount of bookmaker signup offers… Then what do I do?
I really do like the idea of it and I could do with the extra money but this is what’s stopping me getting started right now.”
Does this sound like you?
If so – really – you’re not alone!
In fact I think many, many years ago I shared the same concern.
I can’t give you a definitive answer on that but it feels like we’ve been wired up wrong with some very strange illogical reasoning.
Simply put – if you’re looking at matched betting like this then you are looking at it the wrong way.
With signup offers alone it’s very possible to smash through £1000 profit very easily and I still feel this is being conservative.
So let’s phrase the opportunity a little differently now.
If I offered you £1000 of free money for the month ahead but with the stipulation that this could be a one-time offer and I might not be able to give you a £1000 next month as well then would you take my money?
Of course you would.
How many people would turn down the chance for an extra grand because they were worried that they might not get more money the month after?
You’d take the money regardless of what next month might bring.
There’s no reason not to right?
Now it’s worth mentioning that I’m dishing out an extreme example here…
… An example that suggests that once you’ve ploughed your way through all the bookmaker start-up offers then there will be nothing else left for you.
That’s not true.
Despite my timeless youth (ahem!) it makes me feel very old when I speak the following words:
“I started matched betting when a full decade ago now (yes I DO mean 10 years) and I still find opportunity.”
Honestly, if you take advantage of all the bookmaker reload offers that are available week on week it will not be too long before you surpass the initial profits you made from signup offers.
^^ This is where the consistent month-to-month money lies.
Once you’ve been ploughing through £25, £50 or even £100 bookmaker welcome bonuses it’s easy to begin turning your nose up at a cheeky £5 reload bet but you shouldn’t.
That cheeky £5 reload might only take 5 minutes to lock in a profit from and hitting ten or eleven of them soon will bump up your bank balance by a respectable fifty quid!
Let’s look at another example…
If you made just £5 a day from matched betting for the next year you would finish the year £1825 up (365 x 5) from reloads alone.
Let’s also take a moment to remember that the taxman will have no part in this sum of money.
They’re ‘gambling winnings’ and not tax deductible.
It’s also worth mentioning that this is the low-end of what is achievable. If you put more hours in you’ll likely earn much, much more.
Again I’m being conservative in the example above but I know even then that most of you would be stoked if your work gave you a £2k pay-rise.
Why wait for your employer to give it to you? You might be waiting forever.
Give it to yourself.
I’m confident when I say there really is no better opportunity to make thousands of pounds… At home… Sitting in your underpants (if you like!)…. Than matched betting.
Give it a shot.
