- Income from outside your day job ?
i did the matched betting thing after seeing it on here a few months ago. probably made around £70 with 4 or 5 bookies before running out of decent offers, and also being a bit scared of having a lot of money tied up with a bookie, and the fine print insisting on further bets before withdrawing money.
from what i remember you have to have a few hundred quid maybe in some bookies clutches and hope youre not gonna get shafted by the small print.
still get emails now trying to entice me back, but just not sure im clever enough to pick through that small print. theyre not daft these bookies, just wish id been around when it was more lucrative.Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Buy a load of batteries & chargers from DX & sell them as a UK seller.Posted 4 years ago
People seem happier knowing that they come from a UK seller, despite it being the same item.
At the price DX charge vs UK prices, you could afford to chuck away & replace anything that comes back as faulty.footflapsSubscriber
I used to do wedding photography. It bought me lots of nice kit and made a nice wedge at IRO £1100 a time, 1-2 weddings a month in the summer and 3 or 4 over the winter.
Having done a couple of weddings informally, I can’t say I’d like to do it as a pro, the pressure to get the shots rights given the once in a lifetime opportunity would be too much pressure eg if a camera decides to fail at the wrong moment….Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I used to make a small but reasonable amount by flying internet spaceships and selling imaginary things I found with them. Worked out a fairly poor hourly rate but then, I was in theory playing a game. (in practice it wasn’t that much fun after a while!)
So i sold my internet spaceship dude for an amount which the internet said was small, and yet common sense says was completely insane, considering he was essesntially a digital photograph and a text file.Posted 4 years agoskiMember
Factory worker by night, wood chopper by day 😉
This time of year I can make more at a weekend shifting wood that what I make in a week at the factory!
Sadly it’s very seasonal and this season is no way near as busy as last!
Would love to find enough summer weeend work, mowing, hedge trimming, gardening etc. to dich the factory, but it’s not happened so far.Posted 4 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber

That’s why you have back up equipment with you.
It was way scarier in the old film days which is when I started, wondering if the more difficulty lit shots were going to be ok or not.
Under expose the dress a bit and you’re laughing. Set the flash to fire one stop short and you retain shadows under people’s hats under summer sunshine, the rest is crowd controlPosted 4 years agosamuriMember
I would guess…. that it is usually more efficient to spend the time furthering yourself in your day job to boost your income.
I’m a landlord though, very occasionally get asked to carry out IT security reviews (this is a bit like my day job) and I make a regular but quite small income from drawings. I always have at least one paid for drawing on the go at any time although the income is more often wine, whisky or other goods rather than actual cash. Not bad considering I rather enjoy it and don’t think I’m that good.Posted 4 years agobigphilblackpoolMember
Fixing buying/selling phones/tablets. Little jobs for mates for no cash just “a crate” ahem.
Used to do reposessions for a pals debt collection agency that made a few quid on friday and sat nights but 3 geezers in a transit and a lump of timber put me off that for a while : p
Used to buy/sell retro gaming stuff but due to media people now trying to sell super nintendos for 2kPosted 4 years ago
