Title: PixQuest.com - Digital Media e-Commerce Website Idea - Seeking Investors
Post by: Jay Sadie on June 13, 2012, 07:20:10 AM
PixQuest.com is an idea that Iíve been thinking about off and on for a couple of years. A few weeks ago I decided to take it to the next level by posting it here on LoopyIdeas.com to see what kind of reaction I get.

My first goal was to design a website that is extremely easy from a customerís perspective. I believe in the KISS principal (Keep It Short & Sweet) With that in mind I started designing, and came up with the conceptual model below. Before I elaborate on what PixQuest is, please look at the diagram and see if you can figure out what the purpose of this site will be. If it makes 80% sense then I have succeeded in my first goal.

Okay. Now that you have studied the diagram above, let me explain in a bit more detail, and letís see if youíve made the right presumptions.

The purpose of PixQuest is to provide a platform for Artists, Musicians, Authors, Photographers, Producers, etc. to promote and/or sell their creations in a digital format. By implication it also provides the inverse, namely for others to buy said media. In addition to buying and selling, it also provides an investment platform for buying shares (squares) in the digital media offered on PixQuest and to then trade (sell) these shares (squares).

Note the squares on the diagram above. Each square represents 1% of the Digital Media item. (There are exactly 100 squares)

Some of the digital media can also be rented from the owners. This applies to Movies, and perhaps Music.

There are 5 categories of Digital Media on PixQuest:

NOTE: All products on PixQuest MUST belong to the person posting it, and MUST be free of any contractual obligations to other parties.

PixQuest caters for Sellers, Buyers, Renters, Investors/Traders. Letís examine each one more closely:

So what makes PixQuest different to other sites that also offer Digital Media for sale?

The main difference is that it adds an exciting new spin/edge... the ability to invest in what otherís sell. Every time an item is sold, or rented, the investor gets a proportional cut of the sale. This gives everyone an opportunity to make money, whether you are a creator or not. You can use your talents to identify great art/music/books/... and then invest in it. If you pick the right items you can share in the success of the artist/author/producer/...

PiXQuest can also act as a platform for raising funds to produce a movie, for instance. If you have an idea for a movie you can post the treatment on PixQuest and sell shares in the proposed movie. Let's say you need $100,000 to make a movie, you can offer the 100 shares (squares) at $1,000 per share (square).

Here is a breakdown of how sales/rentals will be distributed amongst owners and investors:

I have already registered the domain name PixQuest.com and Iím ready to go!
