I started matched betting at the end of May 2016. A link came up in my social media newsfeed, and for some reason I actually followed the link, watched the videos and read all about it, not something I normally do! This came at a time when I was looking for a way to earn more money at home, online. Childcare had become difficult and this was affecting how much I could earn in my current card business as I was not able to get out and about as much as I needed to. So perhaps I happened to be in the right place to take it on board.
Of course I didn't believe what I read, or the testimonials. But as I didn't need to pay any money to Profit Accumulator to access the first two offers I decided to give it a go. After all, if what they were saying was true I would know very quickly if this was going to work.
So I VERY carefully followed the instructions and watched the instruction video. Checked, double checked and triple checked what I was doing and went for it. First offer, over £15 profit....wow that can't be right surely? So I sat and worked through the numbers and yes I was over £15 in profit. A few days later I tried the second offer, nearly £18 profit. I worked through the numbers again to check it was right (the accountant in me maybe)! This can't continue though surely?
I had made more than enough to cover the first month's fee so I had nothing to lose, I joined so that I could access more offers. After that I slowly worked through the offers, very carefully, making sure I was following the instructions. I kept a record as recommended and I didn't touch the money I was making, as they suggested, keeping it in a separate bank account. All the while still not believing it could work, I kept doing offers! At the end of June I had made over £950. Wow....but I still didn't believe it!! The second month was lower profit at £540, mainly due to the offers taking longer to complete.
Here I am 16 months later and still matched betting. With profits at over £11,500. There have been times where it has been difficult, if there are not many offers on, or if a bookie decides they don't want to give me any offers any more! And I have made mistakes along the way........a lot of mistakes!! But that is part of the learning process. My monthly profits range from £172 in August this year, up to £1,140 in March this year. I take as many offers as I can or have time to do. There are many people making a lot more than me!
I still don't believe how easy it is to make money through matched betting and wish I had found it before! But I no longer sit and work through the numbers every time I do an offer!!
