How to make a regular monthly income and tips to stay organised
You can make a regular monthly income with a little planning and time. however, there are thousands of sites claim you can create money by earning online. Many of them are just get rich quick schemes that have absolutely no longevity. The methods we will show you have been tried and tested over a long period of time. I show you methods to guarantee a regular monthly income every single month. If it’s just to cover your food shopping or saving for that dream holiday, it is possible if you follow the advice shared on Bring in the Bacon.
Why should I follow your methods?
Well, I bet you have been searching online for weeks and maybe months to find a sure fire way to earn money. You may have even found a method or two that actually work. But at Bring in the Bacon, we have found the best legitimate ways of earning online without all the hassle of searching yourself. On the site, every method of earning is a way to boost your regular monthly income or, make an income from scratch. With many other sites, there are sign up fees, registration costs, endless form filling, investing blah, blah, blah, we promise you none of that Bring in the Bacon!
Calculate your earnings accurately now!
Yep, that’s right! I am advising you to leave this post for a few minutes to go and work out exactly how much income you currently have coming in each month. You can’t start to make a regular income if you are just adding little bits here and there. You need to have an accurate representation of your earnings before you can decide on your monthly income goal.
Be precise, look at your bank statement and include all of your standing orders and direct debits. Do you pay anything regularly by cash? Don’t forget to add in grocery and clothes shopping. Be truthful, you can’t move on until you know your income as it stands today. Include all of your incomings and outgoings on a sheet of paper and look at it carefully. Be honest, there are probably things that you don’t need, but rather want. Can you get rid of non-essentials, like gym memberships? If like me, you only went that one time just after New Year and you’re still paying for it. Don’t fool yourself, if you haven’t used a service for three months you really don’t need it.
Give yourself a goal
This is super important, you need to set yourself a goal that you would like to achieve each month. Be realistic, if you only have a few hours to spare, you won’t be able to make thousands per month. Of course, if you have a smaller goal such as £500, then you can easily achieve that with an hour or two a day. If you are aiming higher, then you are going to need to invest more time into making a regular income. Typically 3 – 4 hours per day. Your goal can be achieved no matter how big if you can break it into manageable chunks.
Think of breaking the monthly amount you are aiming for into weekly or even daily goals. For instance, earning £300 in a month to pay for a new washer sounds a lot when you have no extra money. But if you break it down into daily goals, £10 a day sounds much more manageable and achievable. What is it that you want to achieve this month? What do you want to achieve in 12 months? What do you want to achieve in the long term? If like me, you have a million plans in your head, write them down.
Get yourself a pad of paper, journal, life book or whatever and put your thoughts into words. I have notes on everything. At the minute I have a 365 days Project Book, my all time favourite Life Book and a few other journals and planners I have picked up from Wilkos or at the supermarket. Decide which one you want to use for your long-term goals and give it a title. I love doodling and using different coloured inks, moshi tapes and stickers to decorate mine, but that is not essential. Just committing your goals to paper is the main outcome.
Commit to a daily or weekly goal
Grab your life book or whatever you are using and decide how much you really want to achieve. This may sound obvious and a bit pointless, but writing it down seems to focus your mind on the task. As I said earlier, I have daily goals and achieve these targets by writing a list of earning opportunities starting with the best earner first.
In my case, this is Profit Maximiser, I earn roughly £30 – £60 doing the offers posted on the PM calendar. I then move on to survey sites (check my post here for legitimate survey sites that very rarely screen you out and pay well), checking the ones I have mentioned in this post every day. Some of these sites give you a small bonus just for checking in which is great. Now I have earned around £20.
Don’t ignore the earning potential from your inbox
This is a really important point to make. Don’t just skim through your emails, always open them. Some of them may contain really good betting offers, sent to you specifically. Others may offer you earning opportunities such as a focus group, these can be big earners. So I always move on to checking my emails for survey invites, free bets and product tests.
This varies but makes around £5-10 a day depending on offers and surveys. Lastly, I check my phone apps, I do this last as the tasks on the apps are usually quick and easy so they pay out less than the offers I do online. I can make another £1 or £2 a day here. So in approximately 2-3 hours, I can make a £100, depending on the offers and surveys I do.
Lastly, I check into easy earning sites like Swagbucks, Gifthulk and Instagc. The earnings from these sites can be hard to work out as you get paid in points. I just try to achieve the daily goal on each of them, it’s pretty easy and doesn’t take too long. I normally average between £10 -20 per month with each of these sites which gives my overall earnings a boost.
Where should I start?
If you want my tips for earning on these sites then drop me a message here. This is not an easy fix by any means. You have to be dedicated and disciplined to achieve my daily target. I don’t tend to do the 2-3 hours in one go. I like to take a break and do something else in between, like writing a new blog post, or researching methods to earn online I am still not sure of. The most important thing is to commit to your daily goal.
Don’t try to do everything all at the same time. It has taken me a good few years to be able to make my daily goal each day. the more you do it, the easier it gets. You learn how to use sites better, can work apps quicker and place bets in minutes, but it takes time. The most enjoyable part of keeping your planner up to date is ticking each daily task off as you go. I get an immense sense of pride when I realise how much I have achieved in just one day. But if I cant get some of the things on my list done, I don’t let it stress me out, I just add it to tomorrows goal.
Learn one new earning opportunity a week
Even now, I love to learn new ways of increasing my earnings. It gives me lots different avenues which I can make a little money from but altogether can make a decent amount. The first thing I recommend you do is to set up and use cashback sites. Every single time you shop online you could be losing out on hundreds of free cash a year. Since joining cashback sites I have made nearly two thousand pounds!
It doesn’t cost you any extra, the cashback sites are paid via the retailer for bringing them customers and they pass it to us. Sounds crazy, but it really does work. The biggest earners I have found are energy company renewals/ switches, car insurance, and mobile phones. All paying around a £100 per transaction. I switch my energy supplier every year to get the best deal and make money every time I do it.
Get organised online
Next, I suggest getting yourself a new email address which you only use for your earning goals. This frees up your primary email and makes it so much easier to find emails you want to read quickly. Put them into folders, this can be a little time consuming at first, but it is so much better in the long run. One of my folders is simply named matched betting. Everything matched betting related goes into this folder. This can include screenshots of offers you have received that you may need to refer back to at a later date.
Get an online calendar. It took me ages to finally get round to using an online calendar. Now I would be lost without it. Most sites allow you to add times and dates of events at the click of a button. You don’t need to type anything it is all done for you. You will be notified 30 minutes before an event, or even earlier if you want. This is great for matched betting and survey deadlines. I do also write them down in a diary, I always worry about losing all of the dates so like to keep a physical copy too.
Start your making a regular monthly income today!
Don’t over think things and take too long worrying about what you should do and in what order. Take a look around the site, I have written posts about the biggest online earning opportunities I am currently using. I will also be adding to this at least once a week. If you are going to do just one thing today, sign up for cashback sites and a new email. Then work your way through some of my other posts. It really doesn’t matter which order you do them in as long as you do them. Be proactive and stay organised, but most of all, enjoy the journey. you are here because you want to make a positive change and you are awesome!
