Tew, 21, who is due to go to Nottingham University next month to study business management, launched www.milliondollarhomepage.com in an attempt to raise enough money to pay for the three-year degree course.
Companies can buy one or more boxes for $100 each (£54) and cover it with a logo, which, when clicked on, transports web users to the customers’ own site.
Within days of the website being set up the address began appearing on chatrooms, and dozens of firms had signed up. The site now carries 240 advertisements and has 30,000 hits a day.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
