The Debt Effect - Students turn faces into billboards to pay debt!

After becoming graduates, the first question to answer is not where to work but how to pay the university debt? Yes, global economic slowdown has created such a scenario today that finding a job is almost impossible. At the same time, university debt starts to eat the head. If you are facing the same situation and thinking what to do, here is the answer for your question - Sell your face!

Ross Harper and Ed Moyse, both Oxford alumni, have found a way to pay their university debt. They are selling advertising space on their faces for hundreds of pounds a day! Starting from last October, Ross and Ed are successful in raising more than £32,000 of money and their business is growing day by day like nothing else. Students from as far as Germany and US have contacted Ross and Ed to rent out their face to pay their university debt.

When Ross and Ed faced the question of paying university debt, the face painting idea came to their help."It was kind of wacky with a lot of fun," Harper said. "When it started making money, just from a practical side of things you have to talk to an accountant and things like that, stuff we hadn't expected. Then we were suddenly making enough for it to be more of a career." In the beginning, they had to sell their face ads to their friends and family at as low as  £1 a day. But today, with the increasing demand, they sell face ads for whopping £400 a day!

Anyone from business firm to individual can buy ad space on their face through their website Harper, a former neuroscience student at Oxford said, "It's our unconventional way of paying off our student debt. The graduate job market is incredibly hostile, and so we thought we'd try and bypass it altogether". Moyse added, "It has exceeded expectations, but we always knew it had value and is novel and crazy."
