    They used to pay out for pages read if you included additional content within your books, such as offering free books within your first book. Now they no longer do.
    oh, so is this stuff all new?

    No thats all still valid and has been since last year. Its a change to their T&Cs stopping you linking to additional content from within your first book.

    Another month gone past so time to total up the incomes:

    Affiliates: £50
    Kindle Publishing: £782
    Matched Betting: £2220

    Total for March: £3052

    An awesome month for betting due to Cheltenham festival. Kindle publishing was also pretty good due to exploiting the loophole, this has sadly now been closed so will see another large income from them next month before it drops back down again.

    Basically they would credit you for 'pages read' even if someone hadn't manually scrolled through every single page.

    Coaching is as the word suggests :s

    I can, I've coached a few people already. Cost is £50 for the first few sessions during which you'd make at least that £50 back in profit anyway.

    PM me if you have any further questions.

    Monthly half-way update!

    Matched betting not going as strong this month due to a lack of offers. I've had to scrape the barrel a bit with some fairly obscure bookmakers and pretty tough wagering conditions. Placed a £200 bet this evening that I'm really hoping doesnt win at the bookie otherwise I'm going to have to do £1.5k worth of rollovers. Current profit is about £800.

    I've not really worked on Kindle this month. With all the changing terms and people getting banned for various stuff I wanted to leave it alone as I'm expecting a pretty big payout at the end of this month so want to get that in and then start hammering it again. Saying that; I'd estimate this month's Kindle income to be about £400 so far.

    I've had a bit of affiliate income come in from various sources so that will add on to this month. Currently £100 but I'm owed a further £300.

    Still a long way off that million quid...

    April:

    Affiliates: £250
    Kindle Publishing: £1400
    Matched Betting: £1600

    Total for March: £3250

    Less for the betting but a big increase in Kindle. I'm gonna work on Kindle alot more this month as I've been neglecting it recently.

    I also scored an invite to Amazon Merch (https://merch.amazon.com/landing) which I've been waiting for for 5 months so gonna give that a shot also if I can find a decent designer and some ideas.

    Haven't really been promoting it. I've got 2 people who are interested but I've not scheduled in the time for it yet.

    Nice. I assume it's online coaching? Also, where do you advertise yourself?

    How much time and effort does it require to earn money from matched betting?
