Agreed Anna. Way too many people unfortunately get swayed too easily by the grand promises of many affiliate marketers that claim they make millions easily and how easy it is. In reality, it is not at all easy and definitely requires a good deal of work, correct decisions every step of the way and some luck also, to make good money.

Sites like Carvertise and Free Car Media pair drivers willing to rent out their cars as ad space with companies seeking this type of advertising. To become a driver, you need to have a vehicle in good shape, a valid driver’s license and insurance, and a clean driving record – since it wouldn’t exactly be good publicity for the company if you got into an accident while sporting its logo.
