Innovative New Exposure For Advertisers Through the Resurrection of an Old Method

Everyone has heard of the freebie industry in bits and pieces here and there, in one form or another.  Some of what is heard is interesting, but most is brushed off and ignored, simply because it had been discovered on a sub-page of a sub-page of “somewhere”, flooded with ads and pop-ups that leave an internet user ready to throw their computer out the window in frustration.  This disarray isn’t something that’s happened by design.  It’s simply a consequence of disorganization, and a lack of collective effort by advertisers to move in a single direction.  Competition has clouded judgment in a very large way and, as an inevitable consequence, the free stuff industry itself has become buried, the majority of legitimate opportunities branded as online scams and mixed in with the rest of the residual internet leavings of today’s over-saturated advertising market.  Is there a way out of this virtual black hole the freebie industry has created for itself?  There is a newly resurrected advertising strategy that hopes to accomplish this very thing, a new and innovative use of what is commonly known as pixel advertising.Pixel advertising is an older advertising strategy that began to come to light through the efforts of a young British lad named Alex Tew who, in 2005, was simply looking for a way to raise some money for his education.  To make a long story short, he found it.  Since then, the pixel market has been saturated by every hack and basement-dweller out there and become something of a mundane method of generating a few bucks over the short-term.  What makes this new variation truly unique isn’t the method it employs, but the motive behind it.  Rather than employing the old strategy of filling the pockets of the site owner, this strategy has emerged out of the desire to rejuvenate the freebie industry.  It intends to do this through growth and buzz, and the acceleration of these by funding their growth through the revenues generated, rather than simply taking it’s money and running away.  The end goal of this targeted method is the ultimate centralization of all things free under one roof.  The companies who choose to advertise their free product or service via this method will be helping the advertising site’s growth through the very act of advertising on it themselves, creating a cycle of traffic that will grow exponentially.  When all is said and done, the pixel site will become their gateway, generating traffic most businesses have never seen before, simply because it has grown to such a point that it cannot help but be noticed by everyone.  The attractiveness of this idea is not the pixel site itself, but the idea behind what it is offering to the public, a gateway to finding free items.Essentially, all one does to advertise in this manner is find a freebie-based pixel site, create an account, select and purchase their space, upload their graphic, enter a description, and put a back-link to the advertising website on their own domain.  Rates for these sites are very cheap and designed to simply generate enough funds to aid and accelerate the site’s growth.  The key part of this entire process is the back-link.  As Advertisers link to the pixel site from their own, the organic listing of the site increases.  This is combined with word-of mouth generated from interest among both advertisers and freebie-seekers, along with some serious financial backing from the site itself.  As the website grows and collects revenues, it’s own exposure campaigns become more and more intense, and a snowball effect is created for everyone involved in the entire process.  Finding the rite site is the real trick, however.  If the right one is used, the site benefits everyone who purchases space on it’s grid by delivering mass amounts of traffic both through it’s own efforts, and the efforts of those who support it, thus taking large steps towards a real resurrection of the freebie industry as a whole, and offering advertising companies new and innovative ways to expose their business to new traffic.  Internet freebie and bargain-seekers can now stop on one site and have some real fun looking through what the internet wishes to simply give to them for free, no digging required.  One click, take your pick.  By the pixel site’s targeting it’s own focus in this manner, rather than simply having a “neat” site, it employs a whole new method of gaining attention for itself, and puts a very attractive feature to use, enticing internet users to come through it’s doors.It will remain to be seen if this idea can get off the ground.  At this point, however, it’s difficult to see how it could not.  All it requires is for advertisers offering a free product or sample to extend themselves to the right site, using it in the manner that it’s intended for.  The space they receive is permanent and the site’s growth, whether fast or slow, is a mathematical inevitability.  It’s such a simple idea, that it’s amazing to think pixel advertising has never been used in this manner before.Freebie-based pixel advertising sites are extremely new, few, and far between.  They are, however, open to anyone and everyone who wishes to gain exposure for their business by offering something for free.  Everything from websites offering free downloads of music, graphics, ringtones, software, incentivized marketing websites offering free prizes, companies offering free products or samples, anything that is attainable for free is allowed to be marketed through these websites.  All potential ads are evaluated to ensure their relevancy, and approved once the site itself has been back-linked with the advertiser, and it has been ensured that the ad meets the standards and guidelines of the site.  Essentially there is no way for an online scam to get through and advertise on the pixel-site’s grid.  If you are looking for a truly different and unique way to advertise your business by offering something for free, taking a look at these kinds of websites is well worth your time.
