I posted about the Million Dollar Homepage on the J Spot a while back. The concept is pretty simple: you put up a one-megapixel billboard and sell it for one dollar per pixel. If people snap up all your pixels, you’re an instant millionaire!
And it looks like the pay-per-pixel business is growing!
5CentPixels.com [has] developed the Pay Per Pixel script that automates the whole process of running a Pixel site. This means that their image/link is normally added within minutes rather than hours or days. It even sends a confirmation email out to the customer when everythings’ set up!
As of this writing, there are hundreds of sites selling pixels (apart from the million dollar homepage. There are so many variations–the million penny, million grand, million euros homepage.
I tend to think this is rather like a bubble that will burst as soon as the market gets overcrowded. Perhaps not really a good business model for netrepreneurs to consider, unless you have the spare time and you think it’s worth a try.
