    I'm planning to earn at least one million dollars. It is quite big amount of money. How I'm planning to do it?

    Basically, I'm planning to sell 1 000 000 kilobytes, each 1$, and earn million dollars.
    Idea is simple, I allow everyone to upload their file, which must be safe, and I charge 1$ for each uploaded kilobyte.
    (http://www.onebillionbytes.com)

    File must be safe, it could be any file extension that isn't harmful. Even if your software is too big, you could maybe upload HTML file that redirects people to your software or HTML file that describe your software... Use your imagination...

    Goal? Opportunity for everybody who wants to advertise their file, software, image or anything else. I'm hoping big success so it could help you to represent your product and to put the spotlight on it.

    Word of mouth is very good marketing method. So I'm hoping some of you will help me and spread the word about it, or write article on your site. Thank you :)

    I don't believe that somebody would be willing to spend 1$ for a kb, do you know how little that is? Anyway, I wish you good luck :)

    reminds me of the good old floppy disc era :D

    Ever heard of amazon s3 ? people are paying pennies for data transfer in GBs.

    one line of text in a notepad file is 1kb size.

    IF you are creative you can earn i suppose.Let us say you have video tape of some celebrity having fun you can say pay 1$ and get the download link and u let them download 1 line text notepad file of 1kb size for 1$ :D

    good luck bro!

    why not, if people paid $1 for 1 pixel on the following site (all the pixels are sold out):
    Code:
    http://www.milliondollarhomepage.com/
    i assume OP knew about this site and he wants to create something similar

    i guess you didn't even pay $1 for one pixel on the above site, but it was done 1M times (good marketing and people will buy it), it isn't your usual file storing service where you buy storage space for your files, it's more unique, the storage space is limited even if it's 1Mx1KB, you can be a part of the internet history and people would like to be a part of the history, would like to be invincible, so they will happily pay that $1 regardless what it's for

    actually i really like the twist what you made to the onemillionpixels site:

    "1.
    FileUpload
    Upload any file of your own that you want to advertise and show to the world
    2. Buy Bytes

    Buy specific amount of bytes which are neccesary for your file
    3. Advertise

    Expose your file to the world and watch it being downloaded and used by people worldwide"

    site is bookmarked, i'm really interested how this will work out for ya, best of luck ;)

    wrong, he made $562 so far, because you pay $1 for the KBs and not per file (you only pay $1 per file if it is 1 Kb) and it's already more than what most people make in IM in their entire life...

    try to spread the word about your site on social networks, i think people will love it and it can easily become viral

    Divided opinions... But thank you all, I'm glad you want to share your opinion with me and I respect that ;)
    and yes, I earned 562$ dollars, but I spent it on marketing, and did not succeed at it, so I wasted 562$

    ... You spent $562 on "marketing" and "did not succeed at it"?

    That's a juicy quote if ever there was one.

    I really don't know why people are hating on this idea. I think it shows creativity on the part of the op. I only wish you the best of luck.

    To those that are hating on him, I suggest you grow up. It's an original idea and if done right probably will net him a good amount of money. Like everything smart, it isn't about just what he's offering on the surface. 1$ for 1kb is obviously stupid in terms of just hosting, but what he is really offering is the possibility of an incredible advertising opportunity. As someone else mentioned, the million dollar homepage was a similar idea years ago that worked incredibly well. Companies, and businesses always look for new and unique ways to advertise. If you think adsense, and banners are the only thing in the world you are sadly mistaken. Just look at people that drive sponsored cars(they get a free car covered in an ad for a company such as Red bull) or the guy that dances around the world sponsored by Stride gum. The point is that a unique idea can change a brand's image or just allow a new kind of exposure. Any smart company is always looking for something like that.

    Well that's my rant. Good Luck dovecream!
