Car advertising puts extra money in your pocket every month. It is easy and almost anyone can do it.
Drivers spend a lot of time in their cars. Driving to and from work, to the supermarket, visiting friends, and running errands all add up to about two hours per day inside the car.
Why not make money while in the car?
With car advertising programs, it is easy to make money by adding a sticker or wrap to your vehicle.
The following companies are legitimate car wrap offers available to drivers looking to make extra income.
StickerRide is used by more than 40,000 people in the U.S. and Europe.
Drivers can register their vehicles and choose from a list of active campaigns to start making money.

Enjoy short campaigns and professional customer service with Wrapify.

Place the ads on your car, drive, and earn money. It is really that easy.
New drivers must drive a 2010 or new vehicle. A background check is also required. Drivers can earn $196 to $452 per month with Wrapify. The actual amount differs from campaign to campaign.
A Delaware-based advertising company, Carvertise was founded in 2012.
Carvertise matches drivers with companies in their area. Install the wraps on the vehicle, drive as normal, and get paid.
Campaigns with Carvertise pay $100 per month. Most last three months but some last substantially longer.
Drivers can earn extra money by completing other tasks. And, drivers have the option to accept or decline campaigns at their discretion.
Carvertise drivers must commit to driving at least 30-miles per day. Anyone driving less than 30-miles is not considered for a position.
What Kind of Ads Will be Placed on Your Car?
The campaign and company determine the type of ad placed on your car. Some companies use decals while others use vinyl car wrappings. Most companies use the latter wrap because they look more realistic.
Ads are family-friendly and cover either a small or large portion of the vehicle. Wraps and stickers easily remove from the vehicle when the campaign is over or before if you quit the campaign.
