A few days ago, the Million Euro Wiki decided to offer an affiliate program for those who bought a page. Because I own the Business Cards(250 free cards) page, I can offer a coupon code(McGrathDotCA) so that you will save $10 of the $100 page. So, for $90, you will be able to own the page for life.
The other big thing is that you can also make $30 each time someone use your affiliate code. Sell 3 pages and you can recover the whole cost. After that, it's pure profit. You can also sell other stuff on your page(like I do) or add links to your other sites/blogs(like I also do). You may resell the page any time you want. At the time of this writing, only 70 pages were sold. So, premium page are still available.
For every 25 pages sold, a 16GB iPod Touch will be drawn from the current page owners. The sooner you buy, the better your chance of winning. :D
They paid for a $500 Press Release to promote even more the site. I used PRWeb myself for the MIS Specification.
Yes, it's like the Million Dollar Wiki but MEW offer more to page owners and I'm doing something similar on 1 Cool File by giving back part of the "profit". Plus on my page, I offered the free business cards to European too by using the local version of the card site.
Some may think they are making a lot of money at $100 a page. They are wrong. You must calculate the known cost behind it. Let's see:
25 pages * $100 = $2500
1 iPod Touch = - $400
Who paid $100 with all the coupons around : - $250 ($10 with coupon)
Pay the affiliates: -$750 ($30 each)
$2500 -$400 -$250 -$750 = $1100
You must also take the labor, publicity, promotions and server cost over a very long time. I know all about that because with 1 Cool File, I already spend a few thousands so far. I also offered $100 in my first contest, $500 in the second contest and $300 to be part of ProBlogger $54 000 giveaway. Serious people invest money because they believed in a project.
Again, the sooner you buy a page, the better you will be. The buzz will also attract more visitors and if your page is in the top most popular, it will be even better!
