About Us

Marc Crosby – Head of Accounts and Partnerships

Marc has been at MoneyMagpie since 2014 and oversees our partnerships.

We work with a range of awesome partners and it’s Marc’s job to find potential partners who match our values, and ensure each partnership is operating as well as it can. If you want to partner with MoneyMagpie, he’s your man.

He’s also a huge movie buff, so when he’s not working on MoneyMagpie he’s probably either watching another film or walking his very naughty Jack Russell, Benji.

About Us

Annie Grace – Writer

Annie was MoneyMagpie’s head of content for a few years before the world turned upside-down and she took a career break to follow other interests. Annie has since returned as an article writer – she just can’t keep away from helping people save and make money! As someone who has been there, done that when it comes to being broke-broke, Annie understands what it’s like to feel as if you’ll never succeed financially, and brings that understanding to every article she writes. (And is living proof that you CAN turn it around!).

Annie is our resident small business hustler, having been a freelancer for over 15 years and, like the rest of the Magpie team, won’t stop talking about her pets if you ask about them!

Some fun stuff

We specialise in ways for people to make money and we now even have a way that readers can immediately make money just from visiting the site and doing a few activities. Magpie Money gives readers points for browsing the site, commenting on articles, doing surveys and downloading ebooks. These points can be redeemed for £5 Amazon vouchers.

Unlike other money experts, the people behind MoneyMagpie believe that riches are not just about piles of cash, they are about a quality of life, freedom and simplicity.

The ethos behind MoneyMagpie is that we live in a land of plenty, that there is enough for all and that whatever income you are on, there are always ways to have a rich life…often without money.

Investing for newbies

MoneyMagpie is on a mission to help everyone get into investing.

We know that 95% of the country is afraid of investing and has never been shown how to take the first steps into making their money make money for them.

This is why we have set up our fortnightly investing newsletter and why we are partnering with investing companies to help run articles, podcasts, webinars and videos all about how to get into investing even if you don’t know anything.

Our articles are easy-to-read, jargon-free and open to all. We cover subjects such as commodities, index tracking funds, bonds, cryptocurrencies, property investing and more.

How we are funded

MoneyMagpie.com is funded by partnerships with trusted brands, banner advertising and affiliate marketing to help cover our running costs.

But we choose our adverts and partners carefully – we only include products which we think are genuinely good.

We also look into everything we advertise to try and ensure it’s legitimate (although you should always seek professional financial advice before parting with your money!)

Do we make a profit? We’re hoping to one day!

Want to advertise with us?

Of course you do. Why wouldn’t you?
