This savvy student decided that being skint in university is not an option, and is currently making over £20,000 a week with a very simple idea.
It’s not even his original concept, but fair play to him for reviving it and absolutely raking it in. So, the idea?
Well, he’s restarted the ‘one million pixel’ website and called it Milliondollarbillboard.club. Basically, it works by offering one million pixels to companies as advertising space costing a measly $1 per pixel.
And if this sounds all too familiar, that’s probably because you already know about the Million Dollar Homepage that netted Alex Tew $1 million back in 2005.
Richard, however, is taking it that extra step further and offering companies actual billboard space in major cities if all of his pixels sell – as a way to say thank you for buying into his marketing scheme.
And I can’t see that taking too long, as he’s already making around $20,000 (£13,000) a week, with one advertiser buying a whopping 8K pixels.
We expect others to follow suit – and wish Richard the best of luck!
