Another British entrepreneur aims to pay his way through university by selling 1 million pixels of internet ad space. Paul Smith, 20 from London England, recognised the potential of Alex Tew’s site and decide to try his hand at making some money to pay of his debts at university.
London England 27 September 2005 - 20-year-old British entrepreneur is hoping to pay his way through university - by selling 1 million pixels of ad space for less than $1 each on his website's homepage.
Paul Smith, from London, set up millionpixelauction.com after searching the internet for ideas to pay off some or all of his university debt. Paul found Alex Tew’s site that offered advertising space for a $1 per pixel. He took Alex’s idea and turned into an auction style site where as interest grew in the site the cost of each pixel rises. At the moment the cost of a pixel is at $0.20 but could rise to $1 at the end.
Asked weather he fills a fraud or cheat responds: “I checked Alex’s site out and found that Alex had commented that he would be flattered if someone was to copy him. So I decided to put a little spin on it and create an auction style site that as the site grows the price per pixel grows too.” He also added: “I hope to make a little money, to help me out paying off some or all of my debt”. He believes other advertising businesses would be interested as a logo and link to their page will be displayed on the homepage. He has planned to keep the site there for at least 2 years but wants to keep it there for as long as possible.
