(PRWEB) January 20, 2006 -–
The Rail Mall has set up Rail Pixels http://www.railpixels.com to be The Million Visitor Homepage, the world’s first pixel marketing site for the rail industry. Anyone with $10 and a rail-related website can buy pixels on http://www.railpixels.com.
10% of profits will be donated to The Railway Children, the charity helping runaway and abandoned children who live in and around the world's railway stations.
Alex Tew’s The Million Dollar Homepage is the inspiration for Rail Pixels, which has turned his idea into a site focused on all rail- and train-related businesses.
Rail Pixels is ideal for those interested in railways or trains, whether as a hobby, for gift ideas or to book rail travel worldwide. Thousands of easy-to-click graphical links ensure that rail fans and train travelers will make many return trips.
Pixels on Rail Pixels are available in 100-pixel blocks for US$10 per block. The homepage is divided into 10,000 100-pixel blocks. Buyers can have as many pixels as available; see the live stats counter on the homepage. Their chosen image/ad/logo is then displayed in the purchased block with a link through to their website as long as it rail- or train-related and is not offensive, illegal or obscene.
Rail Pixels will be online for a guaranteed 5 years and possibly much longer. Rail Pixels' content will ensure many repeat visits. The cost of pixels is therefore very good value compared with other forms of web marketing.
Simon Pielow from The Rail Mall says, “Alex Tew’s concept is the basis for a re-think of web marketing that challenges costly banner ads, boring links pages & antiquated webrings. Rail Pixels marketing from US$10 for 100 pixels means that web exposure is affordable for every organisation and enthusiast with the rail sector.”
Rail Pixels and The Rail Mall are from Train Chartering, the pioneer of a coordinated approach to sourcing, theming and crewing special trains for corporate & private charters, enhanced by guest management at stations.
