    The One Dollar Idea
    A copycat of the milliondollarhomepage idea.
    http://www.1dollar1pixel.com/

    The person has made close to $5000 however! Not bad for a poor copy of an original idea. I have a feeling we will see many more of these.

    Very poor imitation. The layout doesn't even work on my browser. The top navigation is off center and overlaps part of the grid. Terrible..

    Well, I would say your right.....but, that was good thinking. Better than a blank page.

    The whole idea is still a rip and I agree that it isn't a very good rip.

    just chimin' in

    There are numerous sites like that now & even a directory that sorts them by how much the pixels cost. I've seen pixels on a booty, pixel ads of nothing but boobs, pixels on a dad's face, a city of pixel blocks, etc.... This thing has been done to death, though I have seen a copycat site w/ almost $30k so far... There are also freebie pixel sites where you don't have to pay - the owner just has to approve of your site...

    You can sell red squares!

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Hmm... instead of copletely copying the pixel idea, why not alter it a little...
    million dollar minute(s) .com

    Of the 10,080 minutes in the week, advertisers can buy a 'minute' and their ad will be 100X100% width on your page for that minute in every week.
    You can charge $100 for that minute. (10,080 x $100 ... ~$1M)
    Just have a little script rotating the ad to show the correct one each minute.

    Rogi,
    It looks like someone beat you to that idea:

    http://www.timethis.com

    Instead of minutes, you can buy hours, which makes sense because who would want their ad running for only a minute? Plus the ads run for seven days, not just one.

    damn

    I assumed nobody would by a 'minute' on it's own... they'd buy blocks of minutes.
    Bah, I'm still gonna go do it. If someone can sell pixels, I sure damn can sell time.

    The only problem I have with it is that I can't seem to allow myself to put nothing but an Ad on a page. If there's no content, it just doesn't feel right.
