The SBC Bet Diary is here to help communicate some of the practical realities of following tipsters to make money betting.
It’s penned by profitable punter, and SBC writer, Rowan Day who, each week, discusses his ongoing betting journey including the tipsters he follows, and his performance, using their advice (win or lose – he is always refreshingly honest!).
The idea behind the Bet Diary is to provide some real-life, genuine, experiences of just how the tipsters we rate and recommend can actually make you a realistic extra income stream.
Whether it’s to simply make some extra pocket money, fund a family holiday, or to generate a sustainable second income – his Bet Diary will be able to help you achieve your goals.
After all, over the last 3 years betting, Rowan has made a 164.40% Return on Capital from his betting so he knows his stuff!
Updated weekly, you can read the very latest from Rowan at the Bet Diary homepage.
Rowan’s 3 Different Portfolios
Given the level of interest in the Bet Diary , in October 2018 we decided to expand it and Rowan now reports back on the performance of 3 different tipster portfolios that he follows.
A ‘portfolio’ is simply our term for a group of tipsters and they have been chosen by Rowan as 1) they are profitable and 2) they fit into the mould of the tipsters he likes and can follow.
Here therefore are the 3 different portfolios listed:
MAIN Tipster Portfolio: This is the bread and butter offering and features all of the tipsters Rowan has followed since 2016
STARTER Tipster Portfolio: If you are new to betting with tipsters – this is for you as with this portfolio, Rowan is starting from scratch and proving it can be done from a standing start. The aim is to show how from small acorns bigger things can grow and how a strategy of reinvestment can work.
BROXCHANGE Tipster Portfolio: So called as its a mixture of tipsters you can follow using Bet Brokers & Betting Exchanges – the Broxchange! If you are restricted or unable to use mainstream bookmakers then this portfolio will show how to make a profit with Bet Brokers or Betting Exchanges who welcome winning customers.
Again the Broxchange portfolio is starting small but as and when suitable services become apparent, then we will look to expand.
Rowan’s Journey Since 2010
Before launching the Bet Diary, Rowan started out as a regular Smart Betting Club member many moons ago. He took the plunge, paid for a membership, and got stuck into following some of the tipsters in our Hall of Fame.
Time wore on, and he started to enjoy some success.
One thing led to another and, keen to share his experiences (and no doubt helped by the fact that he is a talented, engaging, writer!) he launched his own successful blog, ‘The Portfolio Investor’, subsequently followed by the ‘Bet Diary Pro’ in 2015.
Through the latter, he posts regularly about the tipsters he is following, the money he is making (and sometimes losing….) and his honest thoughts on the real-world challenges of betting.
The ‘Bet Diary Pro’ was very well received, and, building on this success, we launched the FREE Bet Diary in October 2016. This FREE Bet Diary illustrates some of the real-life challenges and rewards that following the right betting tipsters can bring.
For anyone who is relatively new to the world of betting, and tipsters, this serves as a very interesting and, most importantly, practical resource.
I recognise that not everyone is convinced that you can make money betting using tipping advice…….We aim to challenge that opinion!!
Rowan’s Track Record of Success
Over the years, Rowan has consistently generated strong profits simply by following many of the tipsters that the Smart Betting Club recommends.
Since May 2017, following his portfolio of tipsters, Rowan has made the following:
9% Return On Investment (ROI) and
41.28% Return on Capital (ROC)
This adds to the profits made by Rowan in the past 2 full years, which were as follows:
2016 / 2017: 8.8% ROI and 58.76% ROC
2015 / 2016: 7.2% ROI and 64.4% ROC
All told, since April 2015, Rowan has made a total of 164.40% Return on Capital (or as some call it Betting Bank Growth) in a little over 3 years.
The 164.40% ROC figure is of great interest as it indicates just how a betting bank will have grown in relation to these profits.
If for example, Rowan began with £2,000 in April 2015, then 164.40% ROC would have made him a £3,288.00 profit by the end of April 2018.
Here are a few more examples of how the 164.40% ROC would have helped with different sums:
- £5,000 Starting Bank in April 2015: Profit of £8,220.00
- £15,000 Starting Bank in April 2015: Profit of £24,660.00
- £25,000 Starting Bank in April 2015: Profit of £41,110.00
- £50,000 Starting Bank in April 2015: Profit of £82,200.00
