A few weeks ago I got an interesting e-mail from the company Vugo. For those who don’t know, Vugo (formerly known as Viewswagen) is a new rideshare start-up that is looking to put geo-targeted video ads in the back of Uber cars. Just imagine how valuable it would be for a company like Budweiser to show your 20 something passenger a beer ad right before dropping them off at a bar. That’s exactly what Vugo is trying to do.
I covered Vugo’s launch a couple months ago and have been keeping an eye on them since they’ve promised drivers$3/hr once things get up and running. Now that might not sound like a ton but when you think about it on a weekly or even monthly basis, if you’re driving 40 hrs/week, that’s over $500/month!
As you guys know, I’m always looking for ways to diversify my income and think outside the box when it comes to working smarter, not harder. And in my mind, Vugo could be a real opportunity for drivers who are looking to bump up their earnings without much, if any, additional work.
