Two graduates have shown how with a little bit of innovation it is still possible to make money during tough economic times , by selling their faces as advertising spaces. Ross Harper and Ed Moyse , 22 founded BuyMyFace.com as a means of paying off their student debt.
Since launching this unusual viral venture in October last year , they are already close to paying off their tuition fees. They plan to continue selling their faces as advertising space for a whole year without a break.
Owing to the popularity of Buy My Face amongst the 18-25 demographic , this unusual concept has captured
the attention of many graduate recruiters, and recently overall website sponsorship has been claimed by Ernst &
Young , one of the world’s leading accounting firms. To date clients have sent the pair ( with painted faces)
skydiving, skiing e.t.c to promote the brand spanning countries from China to Germany.
Ross and Ed are looking to expand the business by taking on more faces form part of their team.
Strangely face painting experience is not required.
In addition they are also writing a daily blog about their lives as walking adverts.
