Free Car Media - Get Paid To Drive
It may sound too good to be true but it definitely isn’t. Advertising companies are paying people up to 700 to 800 dollars a month to drive around your own car. Not professional race drivers or stunt driving experts, just the average Joe and Jane like all of us. While definitely non-traditional and unconventional, advertising agencies nowadays are using any available space to promote a product or a program.
The idea is simple yet definitely worthy of acclaim for its advertising idea brilliance. Companies like Free Car Media, whose tagline is the appropriate “A non-traditional marketing company”, offers you the chance to make money by simply driving your car. While car advertising has been around for years, at one point of time advertising companies were even giving away free cars to be driven around but this method did not make much economic sense, not many people know this program exists.
Registration is simple and does not require a single cent on the part of the car owner. However, be on the lookout for scam artists on the internet that requires the owner to pay a small registration fee prior to being selected for the advertising program. Free Car Media insists that these unscrupulous and unethical acts are unsanctioned and can only offer advice such as demanding a refund if the owners had to pay any sort of fees.
When selected, vinyl decals (or an auto wrap) of advertisements will be put up on the sides of the car. These decals are usually colorful and visually attractive and after an agreed period of three months or more, these decals are then removed, the vinyl come off as easily as they came on, leaving no scratches or marks on your car. While all that sounds easy enough, there are some stringent criteria testing done by the advertisers. Housing location, demographic and a decent amount of advertising sense are used to find a perfect fit for the client’s target audience. A soccer mom’s multi-purpose vehicle would not be adorned with decals advertising a product for a business company since it would not make any advertising sense. A new clothing line or a household appliance would be the perfect fit for the soccer mom’s vehicle, attracting the maximum amount of exposure when the vehicle is parked over for her child’s soccer or baseball practice.
While the idea sounds very appealing, there are only a little over eight hundred auto wrapped cars on the road in the US with lesser numbers in other countries. So advertising companies like Free Car Media are constantly on the lookout for new drivers to sign up, especially during this economic recession. Drivers who live in urban areas with plenty human interaction are definitely the key demographic for these advertising companies.
However, while advertisers are willing to offer a decent amount of money for each vehicle owner, enough to cover the cost of gas, any form of repairs and excess money to spend on, they expect the auto wrapped cars to be driven often. Some companies even offer routes to be driven on and during a certain period of time (usually peak hours) so chances are, your vehicle will be stuck in a huge amount of traffic for the ultimate exposure. A certain amount of mileage usually needs to be clocked as well and lately, these companies can use the GPS system to track their advertised vehicles.
Think of it as Formula One or NASCAR, those racing cars are usually lined with advertisements, the concept is identical. The Free Car Media program is definitely a good way to earn some quick money for college students, soccer moms who carpool or someone who is unemployed and need some form of income quickly. So, if you own a car, live in a bustling city and need some cash, why not try your hand at some car advertising? It can earn you some quick cash!
