Have you ever had those moments where you see a certain idea or invention that was being sold and thought to yourself â€œI canâ€™t believe I didnâ€™t think of that?â€ That seems to be a common theme amongst a lot of people with this pixel advertising phenomenon.
This pixel advertising craze was originally created by a person named Alex Tew as a way to make some money for university. He created a site at milliondollarhomepage.com which consists of a page that has a board-like setup of blank pixels with the intent of selling them to advertisers for $1 a pixel. With the pixel, the advertiser could place an image to help promote their products and services and the image would link back to their site. As quirky and crazy as this idea sounds, there has been over 864,000 pixels sold on his site as of writing this entry which means he has made $864,000 dollars. From reading various comments on the web, many people just canâ€™t believe that they didnâ€™t think of it first.
This just goes to show you that sometimes the best ideas are the simplest ones and that there are just so many unexplored and untapped avenues to generate an income out there.
