Need Easy Extra $250+/Month For Free?
Companies and businesses spend billions of dollars on advertising every year.
From local business ads at your son’s T-ball game, to the in-app advertisements on the games you play on your phone, you see ads everywhere.
Every time you turn on the TV or play Words with Friends on your phone, you see advertisements. We are absolutely bombarded with them every single day.
It’s annoying sometimes to be interrupted by ads every few minutes. I don’t know about you, but I start tuning them out, and half the time, I cannot even tell you what the ads are about.
Companies are finding more creative ways to advertise in order to effectively reach people.
If you are looking to make some extra money, you can get paid to post ads for your favorite companies.
There are two ways to do this:
- You could either make money by advertising on your website or social media platforms.
- Or you could advertise offline.
These are all very different strategies, and what works for you will depend on your circumstances and goals. How successful you will be will depend 100% on the amount of effort you put in.
So, here’s what you have been waiting for. Here are some unique ways to advertise for companies and get paid.
1. Advertise on Your Car
Have you seen those cars and trucks with Red Bull or Monster ads wrapped around them? Those drivers are regular people who are getting paid to advertise for those companies.
The process is called car wrapping, and it is exactly how it sounds. Your car is wrapped with an advertisement.
Car wrapping has become popular in the last few years, and you can make decent money with it.
Basically, you sign up with a car wrapping company, and they will wrap your car with an ad.
How Much Can I Make?
How much you’ll make by placing ads on your car depends on a few things:
- The company
- The length of your contract
- What type of advertising you’ll have on your car
- The company that’s advertising
- How often you drive
- What kind of car you drive
- Where you drive
Some people get paid $50 a month, while others can earn up to $1,000.
Regardless of how much you are offered, it’s still extra money that you weren’t making before, just to place some ads on your car and drive it.
Where Do I Start?
Here are some companies that will hire you to wrap your car with their advertisements and drive around like you normally do.

If you are looking to make easy money, getting paid for car wrapping may be just what you are looking for.
2. Wear a T-shirt
Does what you wear really matter? Just ask an advertiser. Companies hand out free T-shirts in order to sell their products or services. This means more customers, more earnings, and more business stability.
So, it’s not a surprise that sometimes companies will pay people to wear shirts or apparel with their company logo on them.
Companies have always made T-shirts and apparel to advertise their business, but consumers getting paid to wear them is a newer concept.
Jason Zook founded IWearYourShirt.com, and according to Business Insider, he made over $70,000 in his first year. While he is no longer “in business,” the concept was genius.
So, how do I get paid for wearing a T-shirt?
You could either start your own company, or better yet, make it your own business.
If you are motivated, you could also go at it alone. Contact local businesses in your area and see if they’re willing to pay you to wear their advertising T-shirts. Some companies will pay you to wear their apparel for a certain number of days. I heard about a local BBQ restaurant that paid customers $50 a day to wear their T-shirts. That’s easy money!
Or, you could try to get hired by some of the current companies who pay consumers to wear their apparel. /www.teespay.com/ is one of those companies. Check out their website and sign up to start making money by wearing clothes (something you do anyway!).
3. Get a Tattoo
Yes, you read that correctly.
Companies are getting more creative about their ads. They know that people are bombarded with advertisements every single day, and most of us just tune them out. Some companies will pay you to get a tattoo of their company logo.
Here are some examples:
Karolyne Smith got $10,000 for tattooing GoldenPalace.com on her forehead. Yes, that’s a little extreme, and most of us are not willing to go there.
Let’s say you don’t want to get a permanent tattoo of a company’s name (as most of us don’t!). There are other options. You can get a temporary tattoo.
Thanks to a site called LeaseYourBody, you can now get paid to advertise a product, company, service, website, etc, by wearing a temporary tattoo in a place that others can see (forehead, forearms, neck, etc).
Depending on the tattoo, you can earn a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
4. Get Paid to Advertise on Social Media
If you have an audience on social media, you can profit from this opportunity.
It’s no secret that some of the most successful ad campaigns work when the promotion doesn’t feel like a promotion. The reason why is that it’s coming from someone trustworthy.
I know when I have a trustworthy friend post something about a business or company on a social media site, I listen! I click on the link. I read what he or she wants me to read. Why? Because I trust him or her, and I want to know what he or she is advertising.
Companies know this, and they are willing to pay you to share about them, with your audience.
How Do I Get Paid by Promoting Companies on my social media accounts?
There are a few companies that will pay you to advertise for them on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook. However, you don’t get paid directly from the companies you advertise for; you get paid from a company that connects you with those brands seeking advertising.
Companies such as Izea will pay people to promote certain companies and brands on their social media accounts:
Interested? Here’s how it works: You fill out a short application with a social media marketing company like Izea. Izea will your information to match you up with a potential partnership with certain ad brands such as Hershey’s or Kraft, for example.
All you do is share links on your social media sites as Izea sends them to you. When your followers and social media friends click on those links, you earn cash.
It is important to note that more followers you have on your social media accounts, the more likely companies are to choose you to share their ads. Also, the more followers you have, the more clicks you will likely gain from your shares.
So, this is a great money-making opportunity that will work well for those with larger social media followings. However, if you don’t have large followings on your social media accounts, you can work to increase those numbers before signing up with a company such as Izea.
In order to have success advertising on social media, you need to share other content besides sponsored ads. Your followers and social media friends will get bored if you are constantly posting links to sponsored ads. Post other things as you normally would to mix it up and keep your followers interested.
If you spend a good amount of time on your social media sites and have developed a good following, this might be a great way for you to make some extra cash.
5. Get Paid by Advertising on Your Blog
If you own a blog and are looking for ways to make money from it, advertising for other companies on your blog could be for you.
If you don’t own a blog, now might be the perfect time to start one. Ask yourself: Do you have a particular subject or group of subjects you are passionate and knowledgeable about? Personally, I have a blog where I post about parenting topics. I have two kids, and they give me a lot of material to post.
So, ask yourself some questions:
Do you love teaching people about health and fitness? Are you a great cook? Do you have good parenting skills? Do you love to watch and critic movies and books? If you like interacting with people and sharing knowledge with them, blogging could be a great side hustle for you.
Don’t know much about web site set up and design? With my easy-to-follow post on how to start a blog in less than ten minutes, you could have your own personal blog starting today.
Once you have your own blog and are publishing blog posts, you can form partnerships with an advertising network such as AdSense and start earning money from other companies’ advertisements on your blog.
Here’s how it works: Companies such as the ones mentioned above place ads in different places on your blog. These places may be on the sidebar of your blog, at the bottom of each article you write, or within the article somewhere.
When people visit your blog, they’ll see the ads. Hopefully, they will be interested in them and clock on them. If they click on the ads, you earn money from the ad placement companies.
After you reach a certain amount, the company will pay you via PayPal or by mailing you a check.
This can be a great way to make some side money while advertising for companies. All you have to do is promote your blog; you don’t even have to mention the companies you are advertising for.
There is a second way to make money from your blog. You can also make money by advertising for companies on your blog in a sponsored post. Sponsored posts are articles that are written for your blog but contain information that includes a link or paragraph inviting them to visit the company’s website.
Typically, companies will pay out for sponsored posts in a couple of different ways. They pay for publication of the post itself. Secondly, they will sometimes offer payout for any new clients they gain from the post’s link.
Have you heard of the term affiliate partnership? That is what this process is: You advertise for the company, they pay you from any new clients they gain through your web site. Affiliate links can account for a large portion of the income many bloggers make. And some make quite a bit.
Building a blog that makes money through affiliate links and advertisements takes time. You will have to form a relationship within the blogging community and put in effort to gain faithful readers.
However, if you are willing to put in the time and effort, making money through advertising and affiliate relationships on your blog is a great opportunity.
Making money by advertising for companies can be lucrative. However, it takes some effort. If any of the five options above appeal to you, then start there.
Driving around with wrap ads on your car and wearing company T-shirts will probably take the least amount of effort.
Getting paid to advertise on social media and getting paid to advertise from your blog will take some time each day as you manage your blog or social media outlets and work to publish interesting posts and gain new followers and readers.
Getting a tattoo may not be the best decision, but hey, it’s worth mentioning!
But the potential income you could make from these money-making efforts could provide you with the cash you need to reach all of your financial goals, making your work worth every minute you put into it.
