An unemployed man aiming to make a million pounds with his website Mashabrand is attracting traffic from 67 countries.

We have seen our web traffic skyrocket well beyond our expectations.

Michael Suppo, 30, from Newbury, Berkshire has come up with a cash-raising idea after redundancy has left him struggling financially for nine months. His website is a virtual shopping mall that features companies across the world.

“The idea is that visitors come here to browse brands that pique their interest and shop,” he said.

“People love to shop and see what is out there. Companies can buy land and put their business on this mall, so web users can just visit and browse their various offerings.”

The Mall is made up of 10,000 blocks of land, each costing £100. Clients can buy as many as they want and upload their logo on it, directing users to their site or shop when clicked. Clients can even profit from leasing their land if they do not need it.

Sarah Simpson of Advanced Health and Beauty, who purchased a single block, comments “I did not expect much from a small punt, but we have seen our web traffic skyrocket well beyond our expectations. We plan to increase our ad size once The Mall starts filling up”.

Dr Ivan Misner Ph.D. founder and chairman of the largest networking institute in the world, BNI thinks Mashabrand is “a very interesting concept, and a unique way of building brand awareness”.

The website was launched a month ago and, as of today, Michael has made £3,600. “We have had visitors from 67 countries. The nature of ‘The Mall’ is that people’s experiences improve the more logos there are. I personally am looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead."
