    any of you seen alex tews latest edition? alex tew aka mr milliondollarhomepage

    well hes done this sockandawe.com and its gone viral. featured in press etc to.

    also its for sale if any of you interested.

    hxxp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140289808336

    i think could go cheap. as its a crap listing and not listed right. me personally would of listed that on .com rather than uk. and also made a better listing.

    just thought id give you the heads up if anyone not seen it. could be a nice investment. flip, cpa earner etc

    funny game though lol

    If I had the cash right now... it'd be a good investment at least for a few months.

    Hi Dan

    Hope all goes well.

    The q'n I have is this:

    is there a way to copy the way he promotes his sites/creates hype and goes viral - almost by design?

    I have my own way of generating hype but this guy is a real pro. Do you have any insights on this or anyone for that matter.

    I am looking at a few projects that this is essential in but I want to go viral inside a niche.

    If anyone can help it would be much appreciated

    All the best

    Oscar....

    I bet he got a lot of the attention from the media, that shit has been in the papers every day since it happened.

    well i think personally he used some of old contacts he got while milliondollarhomepage took off. i heard he got some ncie sources and contacts. inc some high up people in the press world. so i reckon he just sent them the site and some info. then some of them actually published it for him again. or he paid for the advertising. he spent a fair bit when advertising the milliondollarhomepage. and had a pr agent etc i think. so with all that in place. its no wander he got where he is with that site to...

    as for making a site like. well u need a game developer i guess. quickly knock one up about someone like they have with the bush theme. a good game will go viral on its own. but with extra exposure then it will go off the wall.

    im interested in a game site. well have been for a while now. but dont know anyone who can make one haha. so thats a good start there

    I doubt he'll come near to the first success.
    He only lives from the media attention that's left on him since the million dollar homepage.

    Lucky one time and you'r a made man I guess ;)
