Douglas, Isle of Man, United Kingdom, 2006/06/05 - Inspired by pixel advertising sites, you can now get your business online in a more unique manner, and at the very heart of the Internets “Pixel City”.
First, they entered new territory. And now, they’ve expanded it.
When MyMillionDollarCity first “opened”, it changed the face of Internet Real Estate with its unique format and approach to content delivery. Instead of country or industry specific sites, it created an international community for website owners and users. And instead of presenting it in a typical directory, it literally shaped Internet Real Estate into neighborhoods where participants could buy a “lot” on a virtual map—complete with buildings and billboards— and place an ad or a personal website.
The concept was so successful, that the innovative website has expanded its features and services. MyMillionDollarCity now has new articles and a directory, a move that reflects the company’s commitment to building a solid Internet community. “By adding articles, we provide users with a richer surfing experience: solid information, related to the services and products that they find on our site,” says Simon Dumville “The directory, on the other hand, allows at-a-glance access to various topics.”
The topics include gambling, cars, computers, DVDs, electrical, fashion and food and cuisine. More directories are expected to be added shortly.
Dumville also feels that the directories will be an added value sign up for the site. Upon registration MyMillionDollarCity. Both personal and business websites will be included in 10 different directories of their choice. This will assist them in their efforts to drive up traffic and improve search engine ranking—advantages that come at the affordable starting rate of $24.99. “We want to reach as many people as possible through the Internet—not just by bringing in the traffic, but by giving them the services and information that they would find useful.”
MyMillionDollarCity (mymilliondollarcity.com) is also giving away prize draws of $1,000,000 after every phase is completed. Individuals who join the residential neighborhoods get a three-page website and is automatically entered into the contest (a ticket is given to anyone after signing up for any MyMIllionDollarCity service or product). While the contest is not open to business operators, MyMillionDollarCity believes that they will still get a significant increase in the profits, through the increased business they will get from MyMillionDollarCity . “The site’s unique structure can significantly increase a website’s traffic, and consequently, can boost its search engine ranking and potential sales,” says Dumville. Advertisers can also select the size of their lot to manipulate the kind of visibility they will get on the website.
But the strength of MyMillionDollarCity is ultimately its community. By gathering a number of websites from different countries and with different contents, the site becomes a microcosm of Internet users as a whole. The concept has been very successful, especially due to the innovations the website has been introducing to its services. Aside from the articles section and directory, it has tied up with Img9 (img9.com) to provide free picture and document hosting. Future plans include business to business email broadcasting, a forum, and the establishment of an international “city council” where businessmen and individuals can judge, analyze and review the way MyMillionDollarCity is run.
