More pixels making money!

Yesterday I had posted an article about the unique ideas and how it has opened up the way to materialize many a dreams through the internet. I got comment a from an anonymous person introducing me to his new website and asking me how I feel about it. His idea is about taking up from where Alex of the has left off. Mr.anonymous ( at least you should have left your name) even though has taken the original idea from Alex has added a twist to it. This time it is the video instead of banner ads.

I went and checked the anonymous person's website. It is called Even though the idea is not unique i feel the approach is. He is selling a million pixels for 10 cents/pixel to slot your videos linked through youtube for promotional purposes. At 10 cents/pixel even though it won't give him a million dollar it would give him $100,000.Already there are two people who have bought 700 pixels. How well it would succeed depends on how uniquely he promotes his site.

And i have no idea as to how many copy cat pixel sites are out there competing. The more it crops up the more it will lead to the public's interest getting weaned. Well this kind of things might get noticed but unique and original concepts are the only thing that is really gonna make one stand out. But on a different note I should say that not every product that in the market was an original idea or invention of one person. And many caught on to that idea or invention with their own unique approach and promtion and branding and have built empires. Everytime we think of a television we don't think of the inventor J.L.Beird. We only think of the brands that have been successful in building up on that product because they, even though it was the invention of one person, have stamped their unique seals on the product by adding their own innovations and marketing techniques to it. But a product is differnt from an idea. Alex marketed his idea and to build around that idea and give it an unique touch is a much more tough call.

Blazing a trail is unique in itself and if you can uniquely follow that trail there is potential in that too. There are perishable and non perishable original concepts you can build around on. so it is always good to choose the non perishable ones to build up on.

I hope that his dream about selling his million pixels with a twist would become a reality soon and wish him luck. I mean i like the way he has approached the pixel selling idea.But I don't think that there will be another millionare emerging out of a million pixels.

What is up next? Selling cells on your body? Talking about it I heard that one girl on ebay is selling a part of her body (probably a visible part) to be tattooed by the highest bidder to promote their product or website.

What's up next?

Right now it seems pixels are getting hotter than a million dollars.

What's up next? Here's my answer to that question: is more of a directory system than a pixel advertising site.
