Dear Applicant,

Thanks for your response, please read below how it works to have your Vehicle, Boats or Truck wrap.

Here’s the basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept: seeks people , regular citizens, professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert of Apple Electronics plastered on your boats/car/truck. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as "auto wraps" that almost seem to be painted on the vehicle and which will cover any portion of your bike/car/truck exterior surface.

What does the company get out of this type of ad strategy? Lots of exposure and awareness. The auto wraps tend to be colorful, eye-catching and attract lots of attention. Plus, it's a form of advertising with a captive audience,meaning people who are stuck in traffic can't avoid seeing the wrapped car alongside them. Apple Electronics the giant focuses on younger audience after research showed almost half of under-28s have not tried a Apple Electronics. This program will last for 3 months and the minimum you can participate is 6 weeks.

You will be compensated with $500 per week which is essentially a rental payment for letting use the space no fee is required from you to get started. We shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your bike/boats/car/truck.

Please provide the following information so that we can confirm you for this posting and send you further information;

Full Name:
