Side hustles to make £1000 in a month!
Making money from home has never been easier with the online world opening up so many money making opportunities. The below methods can be started today, by anyone, in the UK to make £1000 in one month online.
You don’t even have to leave your house as they can all be completed online. Well, you might need to post some items if you sell some on eBay, but you could opt for MyHermes to collect them from your house, or you can even choose local collection only!
I have tried all these methods and base the amounts on how much I have made in my first month trying them, or on average over an entire year.
Read on to discover how to make £1000 in a month online.
£650 - matched betting
You can actually make much more than this in your first month matched betting. I made over £740 in my first 40 days matched betting, but it all depends on the offers you do and how quickly you can build your matched betting bank. I made £300 in my first two weeks and was amazed that it really did work!
Matched betting is not gambling, but a legit way to make cash from home by extracting profit from free bet offers using mathematical calculations. It’s not complicated though as Profit Accumulator will show you exactly what to do and they have software to find the best bets and tell you exactly how much to bet where and how much profit you’ll make. You don't need to understand the maths... their software works it all out for you. I highly recommend them if you want to try matched betting.
£150 - sell your unwanted items
Last year, on average, I made £150 per month selling our unwanted household items, toys and grown out clothes on eBay and Facebook Marketplace. It’s amazing what you can sell. I almost took our old Virgin Media box to the local recycling centre as it was too old to return to them for reuse, but I luckily checked eBay and saw people were actually buying them! I got £20 for what I thought was a useless bit of kit!
I’m very minimal, but with kids we are always growing out of toys and clothes in our house. We’ve cleared out our attic and been ruthless in living a more minimal lifestyle. Most people have wardrobes full of clothes they don’t really need or wear and attics/garages bursting at the seams with unused items.
Set a challenge to list three items per day for a month on eBay or Facebook Marketplace and you should easily make £150 or more from these listings.
£140 - 20 Cogs
20 Cogs is a 'get paid to' website where you have to take part in 20 offers and you can make on average £200. Their highest pay-out was £700! I made £126.18 profit and they let me skip two offers as I was already a customer of every option! So I think £140 is a fair amount that you can make. I was already an existing customer for some of the other offers listed too which meant I couldn’t do all the high paid offers and had to pick some lower ones.
I decided to dedicate a day to completing the offers, but I actually managed to do them all in four hours. Some people take months or even years to get through the offers whilst they wait for them to change to more desirable offers. I just decided to power through and do them all in one go to make as much as I could in the shortest amount of time!
Most of the offers involved signing up for a free 30 day trial of goods or services. I set myself reminders to cancel the free trials after the 30 days if I didn’t want to continue with them.
I logged my entire experience with 20 Cogs in a blog post from start to finish and even include any problems I had, the resolutions and even payment proof. You can read my experience here: Make money online with get paid to website 20 Cogs
They pay 30 days after completing all the offers.
£40 - Website testing
On average last year, I made £40 per month from website testing with sites like UserTesting. You can even make much more. In my best month I made over £100! I checked them way more often than usual and completed a lot more tests.
There are sometimes a few qualifying questions to see if you are suitable before you start a test and there are usually tests available every day!
Tests tend to take 5-30 minutes to complete and payment takes around 21 days directly to your PayPal account.
£12 - Prolific
Again, this is a modest amount and you can make much more. I complete studies online at Prolific to help academics with their research. Some are random games or challenges. They all pay varying amounts and are anything from one minute of your time to one hour.
Last year I made £12 on average each month, but this is pretty low for this site as there’s plenty more to be made! I often miss tests or pass on them as I’m too busy, so it all depends on your availability when the tests pop up.
Learn more in my dedicated blog post ‘make money at home with Prolific’ and which browser notifier I use to alert me of tests. Annoyingly they don’t email about every test so you’ll need to install a browser extension to get access to as many of the studies as possible.
£10 - OhMyDosh!
OhMyDosh! is an amazing website where you can make money from all sorts of 'get paid to' offers, surveys and even cashback.
I got a £1 bonus just for signing up using a referral link and 50p for answering three really easy questions. I've managed to make money just by downloading an app to my phone and for signing up to free trials.
If you sign up to trials just remember to cancel them at the end of the trial period if you don't want to continue as a paid customer. A quick reminder on my iPhone calendar is all I set up to remind me to cancel.
You can make way more than £10 in a month. It depends how many offers you do. Check out the 'no spend' offers and 'lightning payout' offers for some quick, easy cash!
