Bucuresti, Romania, June 14, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- People are curious and when something is hidden their first instinct is to discover the secret. Based on this and on the fact that we all love pleasant surprises, discounts and jokes Alex Marias thought he could create a website where advertising would be like no other; instead of the common banners that eyes have learned to avoid and most web visitors hate, advertisers would offer valuable items and hide them inside secret boxes, giving visitors the pleasure to search for them.
The innovative idea resulted in a website where business place desirable items inside boxes, and million of visitors come specially to see what has been hidden for them inside the boxes.
"The response has been incredible" Marias says, "people love to look inside boxes for pleasant surprises and business like this unusual form of advertising."
Business can advertise on Marias's website by buying boxes for US $200 each, which they can use to hide a pleasant surprise inside and a link to their website. Most surprises are advertising in a pleasant form, containing some discount for a popular item, a free item that would otherwise cost money, a joke, or simply something that would surprise the visitor and have him remember the business.
Marias, who is a 27 year old computer programmer passionate by software developing, says that business are getting value for money by advertising on his site. "Unlike the common banners that are found on the Internet, which people's eyes have learned to automatically avoid, this form of advertising is both pleasant and successful, as visitors are not running away from the ads instead they are seeking each one and take a good look at it" Marias explained.
"Discounts have always been a great form of advertising, one that successfully attracts many new customers, but this site is not just about discounts. It is about surprises, about pleasant surprises that people love to discover".
"Driven by curiosity each visitor searches through most of the boxes before leaving, and each box is getting thousands of views per day" Marias mentioned.
Of the name he said "I chose Paid Curiosity because it pays to be curious, from kittens to humans curiosity is a trait that repays; and on my website it pays both the visitors and the business who show the surprises".
