    Ok, OK. Is that guy paying you commission. :D

    I'll put this on the back burner for a while and come back to it in a few months when I should have £100 to put into it.

    If I had no moral compass I'd be a criminal mastermind. :(

    Don't really know any teachers. Maybe I should set up a website to allow teachers to outsource. ;)

    lol, no, I could give you a referral link, but because that just makes people think it's a bit suss, I won't. :)

    Feel free to ask any questions over DM if you do sign up and get stuck.

    I think I would though. I'm forever seeing flaws in systems that would allow me to profit - from a free coffee to hundreds of quid - but don't pursue because they'd be horribly wrong. Damn you, ethics! *shakes fist* :D

    I've done Bonus Bagging and Profit Maximiser and first thing I'll say is that they are legit, so dont worry about that. And you can/will make money at them too. But not THAT much and not for that long, and IME they're a bit too much of a pain in the arse.

    However I will say that by doing them I learned a new skill and also how to tell a good bookie deal from a shit one (most of them are shit of course). I also learned more about Betfair than I knew before and figured out which bookies are the best for doing regular betting.

    Some people do make some big money out of the systems that that guy offers (which you'll have to pay more for) but I suspect that most/all of them are retired and have lots of time on their hands and also have big personal banks to wager with.

    this thread reminds of the mid 1990s when me and my brother signed up to an online survey company. my brother opened up nearly 200 email accounts. I had about 20. About once every week, we would get surveys-which once completed, you would get either £3, £5, £10 or in some cases £20 amazon gift vouchers emailed. the surveys received depended on your age, sex etc. So we opened up many accounts with different ages and names.

    My brother collected enough points to buy a LED TV worth £300, high pressure pavement sprayer and other items from amazon. Eventually, one email provider cottoned on and banned the almost 100 email accounts we had opened up with them. When we contacted them to ask why they closed it, they responded by saying it was because we were trying to "defraud" a survey company :D

    think it was britmail that banned us. their website looks horribly dated Britmail - The easy to remember truly British email address

    I cant for the life of me recall what survey company this was...:confused:

    The frustrating thing was that at that time we only had one PC at home. So I had to wait till my brother finished the surveys before I could do mine. Considering he had about 200 emails to check-sometimes I wanted to cry waiting for him finish. :(

    I tried the survey thing. You end up wasting a lot of time agreeing to do surveys that you're not actually suitable for. I didn't find it profitable enough for the time expended.

    Do paper rounds still exist? Don't know what they pay (I got paid £2.50 a week in 1984), but easy work and good exercise.

    Looks a bit hit and miss. Also I just get to keep the toys, no actual money.

    Yeah, that's the problem. I don't see how it is possible to make significant amounts of money that way, despite some of the claims. Although my problem could be that I am too honest with them.

    Still I might be able to make a quid or two each way during my commute. I usually listen to music anyway. So now it is listen to music and do a couple.

    I'm also not sure I want to put certain bits of my body near anything that still needs testing.

    One of my mates quit her job to become a cam girl. I set up her website, I hear some amazing stories, but after a slow start, she's now raking it in. Obviously you kind of have to be in the mood for what you're doing and your mindset can sometimes not be there, and clearly you kinda need to be someone that enjoys sex and is a bit on the kinky side. On average she will make £100 a day if she puts in about 3-5 hours. Now she's got regulars and can be a bit picky with the one's she likes she will use Twitter to comm with them away from the site she originally started chatting on and get them to cam via Skype instead, with payment via Amazon gift cards or paypal, that way she gets 100% of the fee instead of between 60-75% dependent on what platform she uses. She's also got amazon wish lists, which of course you can add almost anything to, and people will buy her all sorts of shit, thou the vast majority will just buy sex toys or lingerie.

    Subs are her favourite because she can keep them on cam for quite a while, just telling them to do weird stuff. She's still looking for a 'pay piggy' mind you!

    She'll also just do DirectIM, Calls, without going and cam, and people will send her text messages through whatever system it is, which costs the punter like a £1 a message.

    As much as there is a whole load of free porn out there, there seems to be huge demand for actual interaction, and people are seemingly prepared to pay a fair bit for it.

    Obviously from a straight persons perspective, this is a womans world, but if you're prepared to talk dirty to blokes, or show your wears to other blokes, there's money to be made!

    That's a fair point. I have no idea how they go about designing those things and what degree of user testing is required.

    If you've got an Android phone, install Google Rewards, and make sure you have location services turned on. It's not big bucks (I've made nearly fifty quid off it in the past few years) but it's handy for buying ad-free or paid apps from the Play Store, books from Google Books etc. It's almost zero-effort - the surveys are usually only a couple of questions, and are mostly about shops you've been to, or have walked past*. Just answer honestly and you'll get a survey regularly.

    * They use it to fine-tune their maps, among other things
