How to Make Money by Accepting Advertising on Your Car

Earn extra cash on your daily commute by selling ad space on your car.


  • Step 1: Compare agencies Compare transit advertising agencies. Ask about the fee structure and choice of brands to advertise. A contract is usually required, but some are for months while others may be for years.
  • TIP: Avoid agencies that require a fee to register. A reputable agency won't ask for money.
  • Step 2: Know criteria Know the criteria the agency requires for eligibility. Your driving record, background, employment verification, and auto insurance may be considered. A personal interview is sometimes required, too.
  • Step 3: Decide on types of ads Decide on the advertisement you'll carry, including the brand and the ad size. You'll make more covering your entire car with an ad -- known as an auto wrapper -- than one-quarter, one-half, or three-quarter-sized ads.
  • Step 4: Calculate distance Calculate your average driving distance per month. That, and the city you live in, will determine how much you can earn.
  • Step 5: Obey the law Obey all driving laws. Any driving infraction could jeopardize your contract.
  • Step 6: Get a free car Get a free, pre-wrapped car to use. Some agencies offer use of a car and maintenance for the length of the contract. Now go out and make some dough by just driving around.
  • FACT: The Outdoor Advertising Association of America found that more than 95 percent of Americans are reached by media targeting vehicle drivers and passengers.
