    I don't drive my car all day long BUT every day I leave my car in a very small harbor that has around 1k visitors every day and my car is super visible for those people who are waiting in the harbor. Do you think it would be worth to put a text "ad" on my car something in the lines of "Want to win $10 000? Play for free at www.blabla.com" and the URL would then be linked to some online casino affiliate.

    I drive KIND of an eye catching car as well, I'm sure people will see it. I'm just thinking that maybe my car will lose a little value if I smash on this fat ad text on it?

    Your car isn't going to lose value by putting an ad on it that you can remove later, it loses value by damage, distance traveled and age.

    Even if I buy stickers that aren't permanent they would for sure leave a mark if I would remove them before I sell my car which probably will happen in a few years. Anyway it's probably possible to polish it away.

    I'm still curious if this sounds like a good or bad idea. I'll have around 1 000 OFFLINE impressions per day, average age probably 40-50. Sadly it won't be too many uniques since there are lots of regulars who drive by every day, but there are for sure some uniques each day. I can imagine that the people who actually visits my URL is around 0,1% or less. That would mean I'd get around 1 visitor per day, and maybe there's a 10-20% chance that this visitor actually register and deposit money on the casino website.

    I mean why not, this sounds like it could possible give me a nice small passive income. I mean it can't cost more than $50 to get some sticker text on my car so I don't see any reason not to try this. Should I try to advertise something other than online casino? I think gambling is covering a pretty wide audience so that is the best niche I could come up with.

    I've seen cars with domains on their rear windows but always thought it would be hard to get much in terms of traffic to the site from there as people have to manually type in your domain.

    I've also seen cars with huge QR codes on them and, at one time, thought that was rather clever but in the USA not many people bother with QR code readers on their phones so I don't know how successful that would be.

    But it is worth a shot for you only I would put the site on your window like this image as opposed to a bumper type sticker on your car.

    You cost would probably be under 20.00 to see if it works.

    I don't like those things on my car. I want my car clean and anonymous.

    Car wraps don't damage the paint if properly installed and removed.

    I want as big letters as possible so this would probably cover up my rear window a lot, how much can I cover it up before it getts illegal? I'm sure there is some damn law that says I need to have clear vision through my rear window...

    Hehe, that's a pretty funny idea but I drive a BMW.

    You know that you basically drive around in your car with your name displayed on it? You know, license plate. I get what you're saying though, if the text is ugly it could be a deal breaker when buying a car.

    They indirectly "damage" the paint due to blocking sunlight so the paint under the text will be in better shape than the paint on the rest of the car which will show when removing the sticker. I guess it doesn't show as well on a window than on the paint.

    I have no idea as to the amount of coverage causing a legal issue but I bet you could find that out by asking your friendly local police officer or even reading about it online.

    I would try doing it. Why not it can't cost you much and you quickly see if you get any hits from it.

    Yeh I will of course do it before ordering any stickers. I will definitely get a lot of questions from friends and family who sees my car and I would feel like shit if I had this advertisement on my car for a year and not even made $100. It would feel embarrasing to have that shit on my car and not earn anything from it. Then on the other hand if this makes me just a little bit of extra income I would of course be very proud.

    I probably will. Does no one have any input on the inche itself? My plan is to find an online casino that are legit and always has big jackpots, like $100k+ so I can advertise something like:

    "Want to become $100 000 richer?
    Play for free online at
    www.dadada.com"


    Without http:// of course, it's ugly AF. BHW adds it automatically...

    If you are only thinking about where you park it and not when you are driving, you could cover the entire rear window with a window shade and have that lettered. Nothing would be attached to your car or cause a vision issue as you just put it up when you are parked and take it down when you are going to drive.

    Brilliant, also I think there is a website or business doing this but people are selling ad space on their houses (Housing market crash was around 2007) but its always an idea.

    That's a pretty good idea! Although I think I will stick to buying stickers and smashing them on my rear window because I'm way too lazy to crawl into my back seats and removing / replacing the window shade each time I want to drive my car. Also it's possible for people who are driving behind me to become a lead. Maybe the driver behind me has got a very bored passenger who has nothing better to do than to actually visit the URL from their phone.

    However this window shade could be really useful for me if I put it on the windshield while standing parked in the harbor because there are hundreds of cars that passes my car very slowly in the harbor every day.

    In the UK, you would have to change your insurance as the vehicle would be classed as a commercial vehicle because of the signage. I don't know about other countries.

    Sounds a bit awful, thanks for the input. My main questions at the moment are:

    1. Which online casino/gambling affiliate site should I use? (They must allow Scandinavian traffic)
    2. What advertising text should I go with? Someting short and catchy would be to prefer.
    3. Is online gambling a good choice (yes in my opinion because it's a broad field and many people are interested in earning more money) or is there any better niche I could go with?
