August 2017 Income/Expenses

August 2017 Income/Expenses

It’s already September and im so late for this month’s income/expenses.

From Matched Betting I made £2898.34 in August. The football season is back in full swing and a majority of my profit came from sports reload offers, thus proving that there is still good money to be made even after the sigups. As always, I go into a bit more detail on the Matched Betting Guy blog.

I’ve also started building up an affiliate income stream from the Matched Betting guide sites I recommend. I personally use a couple of guide sites and truly believe they are well worth the investment. I was also shocked to receive a payment from Google Adsense. This site has such little traffic that it takes over a year to reach the payment threshold so it’s always a surprise when that payment does eventually come in. Because of this I’ve decided to remove all adverts from my site as the low payment wasnt worth the annoyance im sure everyone endures with banner ads everywhere. Affiliate income paid at the end of August was £404.06
