Jim makes £12,000 a year following tipsters (here’s how he does it)

By on January 21, 2021

Every now and again I get an email from a reader saying they just can’t make any money from following tipsters.

They want my help, and are probably hoping I reply telling them  it’s not their fault.

But I prefer tough love and I’ll be completely honest with them.

It IS their fault.

I absolutely guarantee you they quit a tipster at the mere sight of a losing run.

Lots of punters make out like bandits from following tipsters.

One such punter is called Jim and I remember an interview he did with the Smart Betting Club a year or so ago.

I won’t repeat the whole interview below but I will share the parts I think are most relevant and helpful.

Jim is not a professional punter. He’s just a regular guy with a day job.

But he makes £12,000 a year from following tipsters, so he’s definitely someone to aspire too.

Here’s what Jim had to say:

“It was only in 2015 that I began to take it seriously and I made 20 grand in total that year. In the years since, I have still made a good profit on average of around £12,000 per year.

In 2019 I was down £6,000 up to June after a poor first 6 months, but it all turned around in the second half of the year and I ended up £12,000 in profit in total. Shows the value of being patient, but then having done this seriously since 2015 I know how to ride the ups and downs along the way.

I only use 4 tipsters now and I’m happy with how things are going. I could follow more but I want to have a life outside of them and my day job. I would also rather up my stakes in these 4 tipsters I trust rather than join anyone new. I have been with 2 of the same tipsters since 2012.

Another very important thing I can advise is to keep a record of all your bets and have a betting bank of a good size. Its easy to be a good winner, anyone can do that but it’s when thing go wrong that you have to trust the guy or guys that you use.

It has taken me a few years to actually learn how to manage my betting bank as I never used to have a spreadsheet to keep a record of my bets. So when I was on a bad run, which happens a lot, I thought I was losing in the long run when I wasn’t! I was actually in profit but the most recent losses skewed my feelings from reality!

I still make mistakes myself but I’m not perfect, yet I’m still showing a very large profit. If you want to make money it isn’t easy but if you put the time and effort you will get the rewards if you keep at it.”


There are several nuggets of wisdom in there.

However, for me, the main secret to his success is that Jim has a long term view. He’s been with two of the same tipsters since 2012. He doesn’t jump ship during a losing run.

This is shown by the fact that he was £6,000 in the hole during the first half of 2019. But he stuck with it and came out £12,000 in front.

He can take this long term view because of his bank management and record keeping. He can see at any one time exactly how he is doing. Plus he doesn’t stake random amounts on bets. Everything is carefully planned.

There’s nothing stopping you from following in Jim’s footsteps.

It just takes good discipline and a good source of tips.

I can’t help you with the first of those I’m afraid. That’s all on you. (Although I’m always available to chat via email if you need a helping hand).

But I can help with the second.

We monitor close to a hundred tipster services here at Tipster Supermarket and we like to recommend the best ones to you.

One of the very best we have ever seen is Quentin Franks Racing.

He has a proven pedigree as a tipster, having posted a profit in each of the past seven years.

If you’re looking to add a proven tipster to your portfolio then Quentin is your man.

If you don’t have a tipster portfolio yet but would like to start one then I recommend beginning with Quentin.

With any luck he will be a stalwart of your tipping portfolio for many years to come.

He’s currently offering a very cheap fifteen day trial.

But even more interesting is the extended trial which is currently on offer.

It makes following a tipster long term very affordable.

Fancy really cracking on in 2021 and making four figures from betting?

If so, sign up for a trial to Quentin’s service here.

Take care,
