I am always SO skeptical when people offer “side hustles” because I have found that a lot of times it ends up being a lot of work for very little pay or the opportunity just doesn’t pan out in general and I’ve gotten my hopes up for nothing.
I have tried surveys for hours, reselling gently used items online, and countless other little side jobs that never worked out for me. Until I started this blog, I was spiraling into side hustle hell where I was so desperate to try anything but was constantly disappointed. This blog has helped me branch out a lot, and while I haven’t made a profit from this blog in particular yet, I’m hoping it’ll get there eventually!
However, I did finally find one side hustle that has actually been successful to me. Last month, I made $350 and was able to pay off two of my smaller credit card balances completely! It’s only the 7th of the month as I’m writing this, and I’ve already got $45 waiting to be paid out at the end of this month as well. HOW??
I’m sure you’ve seen the ads on Facebook or on TV for companies that let you advertise on your own car, like car wrapping or advertising stickers. I scrolled past dozens of the same ad before I finally chose to give it a shot.
AND I’M SO GLAD I DID
I was skeptical but I followed through with the simple application and kind of just hoped for the best. I got an email in three days saying that I had been accepted and would be notified when there was an open campaign in my area.
I was assigned an Account Manager, Chana, who has been so helpful throughout the process (and eased my skeptic mind). She sent me an email to let me know that she would be working with me and was looking for a campaign for me and, sure enough, sent me a follow-up email a few days later to let me know she found an opening for me!
I went through the confirmation for the campaign, paid $6.95 to have the decal shipped to me, and then waited very eagerly for the decal to come in the mail. After I got confirmation of shipment, the company I would be advertising, ZoomBenefits, sent me an email with some on-boarding information and how my payment would work.
I want to stop for just a second and explain something very important – you do not simply get paid to have the decal in your car window, I want to be VERY clear about that. The purpose of this company is for people to sign up for their product after seeing the ad in your car — it is a commission based project.
HOWEVER, apart from the $6.95 fee to get the decal shipped to you, you don’t have to PAY to display it either, so you’re not losing money even if no one signs up! This is what drew me to the offer, I can literally just drive my car around and hopefully someone will peak interest in the ad – and if they don’t – no harm done and really no effort wasted!
I don’t think this is going to make me rich anytime soon, but an extra $350 in my pocket has helped immensely, and I know there’s many of you out there looking for a way to just pay a few bills and have a little wiggle room at the end of each month!
