Pixelotto : New Million Dollars Pixel Advertising by Alex Tew

Remember Alex Tew, creator of the Million Dollar Homepage, who earned money quickly using the new concept of pixel advertising selling pixels for $1. He earned a cool million dollars in a few months and the million dollar homepage was sold out, and a huge success. The last 1000 pixels were sold on ebay to close the deal.

News is out that Alex Tew is trying his luck again and launching Pixelotto on December 5, 2006. Techcruch says that “he plans to sell each pixel for $2, plus hold some kind of lottery where the winner who clicks the right advertisement will win $1 million”. Alex Tew has sent emails to previous Million Dollar Homepage customers to purchase advertising space on Pixelotto (via a special link) before the site goes public on December 5. That gives these loyal customers a chance to get their choice of advertising space before the rush begins.

With the Pixelotto buzz spreading, his prior success with the Million Dollar Homepage (PR7 site now), a chance to win million dollars by clicking ads (that will drive traffic to advertisers), a win-win situation for all – I feel Pixelotto might prove to be a success too. Its easy to make fast money, you just need the right idea!

On a related note: You can create your own million dollar homepage too. Or get inspired to put million dollar advertising on buildings.

    So everyone’s heard of milliondollarhomepage.com which made $1,000,000 in just 3 months for student Alex Tew. Now he has unveiled his second business venture…… pixelotto.com.

    The site works by selling squares of 10×10 pixels of ad space for a whopping $200 each. Then, each time someone clicks on a particular ad they increase their chance of winning the prize of $1,000,000 once the adspace is full. That’s right, this time he’s giving away $1m to a lucky ‘clicker’ and the other $1m will be used to keep the site running.

    I do not doubt that he will sell all the ad space in the matter of 1 month, and will indeed make someone a millionaire, and like his last venture, anyone who can afford to buy adspace on his site will benefit from a surge of traffic to their site. But it’s the small print that sets alarm bells ringing.

    With the last site, you got the same deal for half the price. $100 for a 10×10 pixel ad. The ad would then be on the site for 5 years, if not indefinetely.

    This time however, it is implied in the ‘rules and regs’ that for your $200 you do not get ad space for 5 years, but instead for only a month after the ad space is sold out. Judging by the interest already mounting even before the site is launched (launch date december 5th) I’d say that ads will be displayed for a maximum of two months before the homepage is wiped clean and Alex gets his paws on another $2,000,000 of advertisers money.

    Come on Alex, impress us. How about a little originality with the next BIG idea that you promised us, and a little less greed.

    okay so this seems like it would be very easy to win if like 500 of us worked together as a team…all we have to do is sign up as players and each player is assigned 10 ads to click every day until all of the ads are being clicked every day and then the million is split evenly among us…sounds simple enough to me

    I found another site, but it’s quite different – it doesn’t sell pixels, but rather letters.

  5. Thomas says:

    You know honestly I been keeping up with the trends for pixel sites every since Alex’s first webpage and since then there has been a lot of sites that deal with letters or words or pages but basically all the same thing.

    There is only one site I heard about that is totally different and they seem to claim to host “largest internet contest” and that is www.viewamillionads.com.

    Really new concept and I think I will join when they are ready.
