Earn Money by Advertising on Your Car Etc

If you've surfed the Internet for any length of time you most likely have seen this so-called income earning opportunity, which pays you to place advertisements on your automobile, wear t-shirts etc with someones branding. Unfortunately, among the legitimate offers there are always other ones waiting to take the cash from participants rather than paying cash to them. Without naming any particular companies, the offer goes like this:

You register and sign up to advertise. In return you receive bumper stickers, window stickers, a t-shirt etc., all with the companies branding. So, what's the catch? You have to spend $20.00 for the kit when you register. Sounds more to me like a person paying a company to advertise for them, rather than the company paying to advertise - lol. Not exactly the way it should work.

Although there are probably legit offers out there to advertise for a business by placing their logo on your automobile, or by wearing a t-shirt etc., just remember that the real opportunities are not going to make a request for you to spend money to pay for their signage, or other logo material.

Just my two cents worth today in regards to the illusion one can get caught up with when pursuing extra income.
