The idea is to sell 1 pixel on the screen for 1$..
You can buy 1 box minimum for $100 (100 pixels = 10x10 pixels), and the maximum purchase is whatever is left..
And it's doing the job very well : about 450000 pixels sold in just 2 months..
The idea started 26th August 2005 and now is sold out!
The owner is Alex Tew, 21 years old, the UK student behind the site.. He sells pixels on a web page to fund his way through university..
The site and homepage will be online for at least 5 years.. at least until 26th August 2010..
He says to buyers "You will have a piece of internet history!"
So why should people buy Alex pixels?
Because every buyer will have an image and a link to his site on the homepage of a site that could potentially be seen by millions of people over the coming years. The site will be online for at least 5 years, that's guaranteed, but the idea is to keep it online forever..
All you need to make money on the Internet is one really good idea.
