Emma Drew, 29, from Cambridgeshire has created free 10 week challenge  Suggestions are all things you can do from comfort of your own home Taking photos of receipts, matched betting and mystery shopping earn you cash People can earn hourly rate of up to £100 as virtual assistant A blogger who was able to quit her job after earning £100,000 from online money making schemes has revealed how anyone can make an extra £1,000 before Christmas from the comfort of their own home.  Emma Drew, 29, from Littleforth, Cambridgeshire has created a free 10 week challenge, which she promises can earn you an extra £100 a week if you start on 16th October.  Her suggestions are all things you can do from the comfort of your own home or build into your day, such as being paid to watch videos and being a virtual assistant. 'This year I want to help people who worry about the cost of Christmas, giving them real, practical advice and suggestions to make money for the big day,' she explained.  Emma herself now makes around £3,000 a month from activities such as mystery shopping, risk-free betting and online lotteries, after seeking out other sources of income when she was unemployed. In November 2015, she was able to give up her job as a website administrator as she was earning almost twice her previous £1,600 a month take home pay, while her husband Tony has also been able to quit his role to work alongside her. Emma has lots of money-making tips so you can pick those that suit your lifestyle, but if you take on some of the challenges below from mid-October onwards she's certain you can make at least £1,000 by the time Father Christmas arrives. MYSTERY SHOPPING 'I love mystery shopping, and every month it makes a hefty chunk of our online income,' Emma said.  'It's not only a way to make extra money, but it is also great for the free items we get, such as groceries, toiletries and Christmas shopping, which in turn helps to reduce our budget elsewhere.'  If you have a healthy credit rating and about an hour to spare, you can sign up for a banking assignment with Ragdoll Research They will pay you £50 to act as a banking 'mystery shopper' by going in to apply for a financial product such as loan or credit card and then rating the process.   You will be provided with all the information you need to give for the application, and afterwards they can even cancel the financial product if you don't need it, as well as removing traces of it from your credit report. As well as shopping in popular high street stores or restaurants, there are mystery shopping companies who only focus on online assignments if you're stuck for time. How to become a mystery shopper MARKET FORCE: I have completed hundreds of jobs for them and they are a great company to sign up for. With lots of clients, you are sure to recognise many of them. You are able to select a few areas, perhaps where you live and where you work, and search for jobs. I would strongly recommend that you join Market Force as your first mystery shopping company. GRASSROOTS: I have completed over 50 jobs with them. Ranging from getting my groceries free to test out click and collect to asking about travel currency, the jobs have been varied and well paid.  RED WIGWAM: At the moment they seem to be focused on one supermarket, but this might just be the area that we are in. They send detailed pay slips and take care of your tax, leaving you with your take home pay. E-DIGITAL: Perfect if you are looking to exclusively mystery shop online. E-digital has regular mystery shopping including purchasing items online (reimbursed) and testing apps. You will need to invoice them monthly once your balance has reached the payment threshold. BECOME A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT Virtual assistants offer a wide variety of services remotely including carrying out administrative tasks, writing blog posts or scheduling social media content. Some VAs charge up to £100 an hour but Emma recommends new starters go for £15 to £20 an hour. To get started with clients she suggest using People Per Hour where you can advertise as well as bidding on existing jobs.  You can search for broad phrases such as “virtual assistant” and then narrow it down by the services you can offer. AUDIO TYPING Sign up with a company such as TakeNote and you can earn up to £25 per hour of full transcription audio. It typically takes three to four times the length of the audio to type the full transcription, and you need to be able to type 65 words per minute and have at least a grade C in English GCSE Anyone who promises that you will make mega money completing online surveys is lying.

This trick involves making use of bookmaker’s free bets to get a guaranteed profit, tax free. Let's say Red Rum is running a race got to the bookies and bet that he's going to win and that he's not going to win using your free first bet. So either way you get money. 'During Cheltenham I made £550 in four days using special offers. Then there's the Grand National, the premier league - there are always offers,' Emma said.  WATCH VIDEOS AND PLAY GAMES  There's lots of ways to earn money through the SwagBucks site, including surveys and polls. You can also earn by watching short video clips and playing games and convert your SwagBucks into vouchers or cash.  You'll need 849 for a £5 Amazon voucher, and Emma usually gets one or two a week, while 1,049 gets you £5 cash via PayPal.  GENERATE PASSIVE INCOME  Passive income is an income that you don't directly work for, or you do the work once and keep getting paid. For example, any interest you earn on investment would be a passive income, or if you wrote a book then your royalties would also be passive income. It's probably not realistic to start earning money from a blog or buy a rental property before Christmas.  However, if you can think of something that you only have to create once that people will keep buying you could be on to a winner. Are you a pro at making a budgeting spreadsheet? Or perhaps you can create some Christmas craft printables?  'If you can create a downloadable product that there is a demand for then you can set up an automated process where a buyer purchases your product and then receives a digital copy as soon as they have paid,' Emma said. vists Emma's blog by clicking the link
