Resources

Welcome to the resources section. Here you will find a curated list of my favourite tools and websites that I personally use for my businesses. Whether that be selling on Amazon, matched betting, blogging or even making alcohol.

This page is also how this site makes money. All my guides and articles are available for free. I don’t accept advertising and I don’t accept paid for submissions. Instead, I make money through refer-a-friend deals to some of the resources below. These refer-a-friend commisions come at no extra cost to you. In fact, I am often able to negotiate discounts for my readers. So, if you plan on using any of the resources below please click through my link.

Matched Betting & Arbing

Matched betting is a way to make money out of the free bets that bookies offer to encourage you to sign up. Never heard of it? Read my introductory guide to Matched Betting.

Oddsmonkey

Maximise your profits with the World’s #1 matched betting software.

Oddsmonkey is my favourite full service matched betting subscription service. They have been around for as long as I have been matched betting (over 10 years) and keep getting better and better. For £17.99 a month Oddsmonkey will provide you with:

  • Step-by-step tutorials and videos to complete most mainstream sign up offers.
  • An arb finder to maximise your return.
  • Calculators to make stake size calculations easy.
  • Customer support to answer any of your basic questions. Or even just to hand hold you through your first offers.
  • A daily offers calender laden with reload offers.
  • A thriving forum with hundreds of thousands of posts.

OddsMonkey makes it simple for you to earn a tax-free second income.

Rebel Betting

The best premium arb finder on the market. By a long way.

Rebel Betting is designed with professional arbers in mind. It isn’t cheap at €129 a month, but it is the best.

  • Very quick refresh rate, meaning you see the arbs before anyone else.
  • Over 10 sports covered, including horse racing.
  • Complex arbs and dutches such as middles and cross markets.
  • 98 bookmakers and 5 exchanges.
  • Works in over 150 countries.

They do have a cheaper service for €39 a month with limited arbs, but it doesn’t have all the features. If you want a cheap arb finder sign up to Oddsmonkey and use theirs, it’s cheaper. With Rebel Betting, you want the Pro subscription or nothing.

Rebel betting is a dedicated arb finder which you can use to make money without a bonus.

Amazon FBA

Amazon FBA is the warehousing network attached to Amazon. It allows small one-man brand owners like myself to selling hundreds of items a day across the world. Never heard of it? Read my introductory guide to starting a business with Amazon FBA.

Jungle Scout

Find Amazon Products You Can Profit From, Fast and Without Guesswork.

Jungle Scout is my favourite market research tool for Amazon. It lets you dive in deep into the Amazon catalogue. Whether that is checking out your competition or looking for a new niche to dominate.

  • See how much your competitors a making a month.
  • Check for underperforming.
  • All marketplaces covered.
  • Some of the best tutorials and video guides ever created for Amazon FBA.
  • It is expensive on a per monthly basis. But you can cancel when not using it.

There are three different plans. I recommend the Standard as it includes the niche hunter which is very useful for finding keywords.

When you get to the sign up page select “monthly billing”. It is a bit more expensive but you can cancel anytime.

Start Up: $39/month

Standard: $69/month

Business: $99/month

Blogging & Websites

Most of my businesses rely on a website. To get started setting up your own blog or website check out my guide.

Bluehost

Bluehost is a very cheap host that I use for 90% of my websites. It is optimised for WordPress and you can host many different blogs on one hosting plan. The best part is that it is dirt cheap at $3.95 a month.
