freelance writerOver the next few weeks I’m going to be writing a series of posts on making money, this week I’m going to show you how to make an extra £500 a month. Other posts in this series include how to make £100 a month and how to make £1000 a month.
how to make an extra £500 a month
Earning an extra £500 each month is a similar wage to someone working a part time job. It’s going to take a little more time and effort than an extra £100 but can still be done from home around your other commitments. Aiming for £500 each month is great if you are planning on paying for a holiday, paying off a big chunk of debt or maybe giving up your part time job.
Last week I explained how it’s best to pick a few of the websites/apps mentioned to register with. This should have started you off making some extra cash and working out which sites you like best. This week continue to do that, pick a handful of companies mentioned to register with and start making extra money.
Making an extra £500 a month should take you around 5-10 hours each week depending on what you choose to do. This may sound like a lot of hours but it works out at no more than an hour and a half each day.
One of my favourite side hustles is matched betting. Just 30 minutes a day can make you an extra £300-£500 each month tax and risk free. I made roughly £300 in 4 days over this years Cheltenham festival and in 2016 matched betting saved our Christmas!
I use and love Profit Accumulator for making matched betting really simple. They currently have a free trial with 2 offers where you can make £45!

I mentioned surveys in how to make an extra £100 a month, and although a few surveys may only earn you pennies there are higher paying survey sites out there. It is completely possible to make an extra £200 by completing surveys but you just have to get strategic about it.
Companies such as Pinecone Research pay you £3 per survey. Each survey last for around 20 minutes meaning you’re getting paid around £9 per hour. That’s not bad going in my opinion.
Mystery shopping can be a great little side hustle to make some extra cash. It’s free to get started and relatively simple to apply. Here is a list of my favourite mystery shopping companies.
