Tue 19 aug 2008 5:16 The website working in 3 hours
The website works, the email works... so It's time to sleep!! to-do: 1) check a little this spanglish blep! with google 2) find first customers... I have some ideas that I want to try asap 3) send email to my friend David Navarro I was trying to meet him and talk about our internet projects... Now I have something interesting to show him ;-)... more... uhm think a little more about this stuff...
Tue 19 aug 2008 17:30 It's complete?
I was thinking about put a form mail in the website to avoid spam, but I decided no. 'Keep it simple' is going to be my rule.
Tue 19 aug 2008 19:23 Time and money
One interesting question ¿How much time and money have I spent to get this first version working? Well, I was thinking about building this website while driving my car in the back of holidays in Almeria, but I can't count this time, I was basically doing another thing and by the way I can not stop thinking, so thinking while driving its free. I back home, and I was reading a courious book bought just in the last minute in Almeria, of Rafael Martinez: Proceso bioenergético..., strange, interesting, crazy, incomprehensible...just in the way like my Arena Sensible I guess.. Well, about at 0:20 I stop reading this book and start to surf on the Internet to learn about this initiatives; at 2:50 I decided to try this, and I get my own domain name registered in godaddy.com and I started to write and put online the content of the website untill 5:16. The complete invoice was $68.71, that is, $48.89 for one year hosting linux, $2.70 for the domain (It's discounted I guess) and $9.30 for the one year renewal of other domain that I own masquecuentos.org (in spanish).
That is, 48,89 + 2,70 = 51,59$ and converting to euro it's 34,95 euros, plus 3 hours surfing and 3 hours writting the website, 6 hours that could be for instance 30€/h = 180 €
Balance: -214,95 € or -34,95 € and 6 hours less of an always short life.
Wen 20 aug 2008 16:15 What do I want?
A song is ringing in my head: the track 2, "Heavy Metal" in "Ram It Down", of Judas Priest. I can hear Rob Halford singing in my head: "Heavy Metal, What do you want". Seems to be that some side of my brain is sending messages to the other side (Did you have seen this video about it?). What is what it means? It means that I'm really want to be a rock star? Oh! I already know it! It means that I'm going to loose something important if this project comes successfull? Mmmm... May I have to think why I do this and what is the real goal? Probably. I can say that in certain sense, I know the secret of life, I, like lots of people, know the basic materials used to build this thing called happiness. (Therefore, I don't need the money, isn't it?). I found/felt it (again) about 3 weeks ago. The meaning of life. But It's not enough to talk about it directly. It's not usefull. If someone tells you that you have to do something to be happy, free..., it's only the easy part of the problem. The key is: Ok, but, How can I do this thing that I have to do? Quit smoking is easy if you know how to do it...
Wen 20 aug 2008 21:58 Disaster
Disaster in the Barajas airport in Madrid. Shit!
Tue 26 aug 2008 2:05 Here I go again!
One week before start the game, here we are again! :-) Still looking for the first customer... I like to contact some friends to see what they think about this, but everybody seems to be in holidays. About the other subject (the goal), sincerely my big dream wasn't be milllionare, but be as Kai Hansen, Adrian Smith, Rob Halford or Bruce Dickinson, and play heavy metal arround the world like them, oh!!! So, invest in one rock travel around the word, like Bunbury of Heroes del Silencio... Is there any better destiny to the money? Ha!
Sat 30 aug 2008 12:40 I forgot one thing
Finally, yesterday I had a meeting with David Navarro, and he taugh me that I've forgotten one important thing. One of the keys of success, or probably, the most important, is "win-win" (everybody wins). That is, I have to give my costumers what they are looking for. Which are the benefits of buying a cell? They are: to have fun, to promote the image of the buyer's company, to increase the traffic to my costumers' websites... ok but there is a problem with all this. What about the first buyer of the first cell? He doesn't know if the urlpuzzle is going to success, so he has much more risk than other buyers.
Sat 30 aug 2008 16:04 Win-win
It's clear that purchasing a cell has more risk when nobody has done it before. Therefore, I think it's a good idea to help buyers to buy the first cells. This is how I'm going to do it: I offer to buy back some cells in some cases. Read more in the "Buy back" page.
Mon 22 sep 2008 22:21 First cell sold!
Finally! Ohoho!!! Not only one, two cells sold :-) to a close friend of mine, I'm not sure if he wants to have his name here or not. I'll to ask him... great, great great!!! :-)
Mon 22 sep 2008 22:57 New Balance
Mmm... -€5,11 EUR to PayPal for 200$ (140€), they're going to be rich, also! :p I've converted my PayPal account to Premier/Business although I do not understand well the profits... well they're peanuts! (Faster of peanuts -I know It has no sense-, this is a joke to my friends! ;-)
Cash balance: -34,95 € + €134,89 = 99,94€ ok ok good start...
Mon 22 sep 2008 23:09 Already at E-bay!!!
Hahahaha my first customer has already put this cell in ebay!!! hahahah!!! It's here
Tue 23 sep 2008 00:07 Happy birthday...
My birthday! :-) Ok, time to sleep!
Tue 29 oct 2008 15:16 I hate ads too
Busy with CompraExperta.com (spanish). I hope you enjoy it!
Fri 28 nov 2008 9:20 Lost in translation
I keep translating the website to spanish, since the main visitors ask it to me. And keep searching for my second costumer.
Fri 19 dec 2008 8:34 Revert negative into positive
Most companies and people seems to run out of money (because crisis...), they have a negative view. So I've decided to try to make deals only with (the few) people and companies with optimistic future, such as DoctorSIM. I'm going to talk with them...
Wen 4 mar 2009 17:49 The second costumer is here, and with a complete domain name
What about crazy months! Well, finally here is my second costumer: 38bytes.com :-) If the puzzle is finished, he is going to earn $11.000 (that is, $12.100 less the $1.100 of the purchase), so, this is a very good idea, at less if you give the project more than 10% of probability of success!. But of course, the real advantage is the marketing opportunity.
And here some advertisement tools...
