Cockeyed.com verkoopt via eBay een één pixel grote advertentie op de homepage.
“Although this 1x1 ad will be the smallest ad on the internet, I’m sure it will attract plenty of visitors.”
The tiny ad, although perhaps incapable of displaying your complete marketing message, will be “programmed” to “hyperlink” to your company, product, personal or auction “internet” address, in the same window.
Designing a one-pixel ad is easy, so there is little need to invest in the latest pirate copy of Photoshop CS, or hire a flashy Madison Avenue design agency!
The secret is to choose a pixel color that attracts the reader’s eye and compels them to click on the ad.
Blue, for example.
Ad will include a up-to 40-character alt tag, to describe the link when moused-over.
