Most businesses grow organically, start small, work hard, and hopefully it pays off. And then there are those that have that one clever idea, market it well, and become very rich overnight. Meet Ship Your Enemies Glitter. Com
Ship Your Enemies Glitter.Com makes me laugh and cry at the same time; it’s stupid but brilliant, easy but well thought out. Most of all, it’s a lot of cash for one clever idea!
Mathew Carpenter, an Aussie internet marketing entrepreneur, started this business only 3 weeks ago. He will fill the envelope with glitter, add a note explaining why the receiver was given this terrible gift and send it to anyone who needs to be annoyed. It’s a straightforward way to prank, has just the right amount of childish appeal and it’s embarrassing enough, though not life threatening.
One in the billion good ideas actually go viral, which is exactly what happened here. The website was launched in the beginning of january and soon after it was shared on most major online and offline publications. Within 4 days the website was visited 2,5 million times.
Why glitter can make you rich
Each envelope costs 10 Australian dollars. Shipping the envelope filled with the glitter & the A4 letter to most places in the world from Australia ranges anywhere from $2-$4, according to his estimation. This is one healthy profit margin! Within days he made over 20,000 dollars with this tiny side-project.
To prevent having to send out glitter 20+ hours a day to keep up with demand, shipyourenemiesglitter.com now has a waiting list and is currently not available, while Mathew is looking for a new owner to continue the glitter sending business.
The highest bid for this business is currently a whopping $70.800.
So there you have it, the best way to make money with glitter, fast. You have one day left to place a bid if you want to become a glitter magnate!
