Million dollar pixel pages might be old hat now, but a British mom has twisted the idea with the launch of her “A Million Jobs To Do” web site.
Spurred on by her dream to buy a £1m house, Chrissi Sharkey set up the web site to allow anyone to hire her services for a minimum of £1 per job.
Prospective clients simply suggest a task that they need doing and the amount they’re willing to pay. The two sides then negotiate to find a favourable deal, the job gets done, and Chrissi gets paid.
Jobs she’s taken on so far include testing out three floral bras for a bra review web site, organising a ballot, and theming a child’s party.
Only via Internet could you easily, and cheaply, hope to reach such a goal. Let’s hope she gets more than the minimum amount per job, though, because a million jobs is going to take a long, long time to finish.
Dream house aside, she may need to invest a bit more in web hosting, because the recent publicity drive seems to be hammering her web server.
