HSD1 Posted September 25, 2013 Report Share Posted September 25, 2013 Beardvertising: Get paid to advertise in your beard (Picture: Cornett-IMS)Beard growing enthusiasts could soon be raking in the cash should this fuzzy thinking advertising concept take off. Aside from keeping your face warm and looking cool (sometimes), your bushy beard could also help boost your bank balance. Beardvertising has been tipped to become the ‘next big thing’ in advertising and involves using a willing participant’s epic facial hair as mini billboards. That’s good news for lumberjacks and hipsters, with Kentucky-based advertising agency Cornett-IMS offering men $5 per day to wear the clip-on adverts. ‘Do people stare at its awesomeness? Of course they do,’ reads the official beardvertising website. ‘Do you wanna get paid for having an epic beard? Join the world’s first Beardvertising network. ‘It’s simple – turn your beard into a business. Hang a BeardBoard (Patent Pending) in your beard. Sit back and get paid up to $5 per day.’ This beard enthusiast could rake in the cash (Picture: AFP / Getty)Company executive Whit Hiler said the firm have been inundated with requests from beard growers across the world interested in the ‘native advertising’. ‘I think it’s the next big thing,’ he told Business Insider. ‘Everybody loves beards. ‘We’re getting a ton of emails from guys with epic beards that want to host beardboards and we’re actually in talks with some brands that want to be Beardvertisers. ‘I think we’ll probably be seeing some ‘beardboards’ in the wild before too long.’ http://metro.co.uk/2013/05/25/could-beardvertising-be-the-next-big-thing-get-paid-for-your-epic-facial-fuzz-3808486/ 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
