Sell Advertising Space On Your Car Or Trailer

Some of us like to make money without too much effort involved in the process – and this is certainly one of those ways that works very much like this. Once you have the initial work done all you have to do is go about your daily business as normal!

There are two ways you can go about this, but whichever way you decide on there are several things that are worth remembering. Firstly you will need to be out and about in your car quite often for it to be worth doing, and secondly you will need to keep your car or trailer looking as good as possible all the time.

Selling advertising space on your car is a great way to bring in some extra money every month. Considering you are out and about anyway you are really getting paid to do something you already do.

There are companies around that will sign you up to enable you to advertise for the people on their books, but there are a number of pointers you should be aware of. Firstly this is like any other job in the sense that you shouldn’t have to pay for the privilege of getting it. If anyone asks you for a fee then you are looking in the wrong place.

It’s a good idea to research any company you come across before approaching them, to see how reliable they seem to be. Search online forums about this kind of job and see what you can find out. Most people like to share any negative experiences they have with work at home or self employed jobs like this.

If you do go with a proper company then you will need to be honest about your driving details – how far you go and so on. If your car is parked in your driveway for six days a week then this might not be the best strategy for you!

The other idea is to approach local businesses yourself and offer to advertise their services on their behalf. The best strategy is to approach one at a time because no one will want to be competing alongside another business on the side of your vehicle. Agree an advertising period of a month at a time, and then if one company drops out you can get involved with another one instead.

As far as the ads themselves are concerned, magnetic signs work well as you can take them on and off very easily and they are also available in several different sizes. Make sure you find out what the prices for each size would be before you agree on a price with a company who wants you to advertise for them; you can then work it into the overall price you charge.

If you want to go it alone with this idea, it might still be worth investigating what proper advertising companies charge for this form of advertising so you know what to charge yourself. This could also depend on how much you drive and how new your car is – after all, no one wants to promote their business on a car that has seen better days!

So if you fancy this idea think about all the businesses in your area you could approach for business. That is, once you’ve left us a comment first!
