Pure Genius…

MillionDollarHomepage has to the most creative advertising campaign I’ve ever seen. It was started by a guy from the UK just hoping to pay for college (and socks) and while it is only a few months old, it has already yielded over $400K. I think University will be covered. It just goes to show that there are still ideas out there and with a little effort, anyone can capitalize on them. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and figure out what’s going to make my next million… 😉

    Hey Dave!

    There is a website called Nickels for Katrina that utilizes the same method. I though it was that site owner’s idea – guess not. Still, pretty ingenious. If I think of a way to generate that sort of cash, I’ll share it with you. 🙂

    The thousands of copy-cats that appeared after milliondollarhomepage
    made it big won’t get too far since the idea of selling pixels is no
    longer novel! But now this site has popped up:

    Claiming to “change the way advertising works”, OnlyOneAd.com is
    selling only one ad. That’s right, there is only space for ONE ad
    on the page. The first ad costs $1. To replace the ad, the next
    advertiser must pay $2. After that, it costs $4, and so on. Each
    new ad costs twice the amount of the previous ad. That means the
    21st ad costs over one million dollars. The creator seems convinced
    he can reach his goal, which actually seems possible if he can
    generate enough buzz. He’s keeping a detailed blog, and so far only
    the 1st ad has sold for $1! How is this going to turn out?
