Cool Active, Growing, Online Community - For Sale

Outcasted.com

Firstly, I have taken offers on this site before. I was considering selling it.
Currently, I am almost dead set on selling... if the right amount of money is offered. Unseen circumstances force me to sell.

Price: Currently, the "Buy It Now" price is $2,500. Though offers of $1,500+ will be considered. There is a current offer of $1,500 already.
The price is debatable. But that is what it is worth in my opinion.

The site has been around over a year.

The site shows strong growth. New members signing up everyday, and new posts everyday.

Currently (as of writing this) we have 536 members and 47,466 posts.

We get around 2-6 new members a day, I would say. ALL members are signing coming to the site from existing links, search engines, or from word of mouth from other posters. NO advertising is done to get the members currently. If you were to advertise, Im sure more would come each day.

The site was recently redesigned: http://www.outcasted.com/
This includes some PHP coding to tie in some parts of the forums, and to generate random banners.

The domain is PR5.

Stats/Info
Traffic Stats
Link Pop
Search Engine Saturation
Alexa data (Site has peaked in the 70,000 range a couple times)

Income

Currently, I started offering advertising on the site. I charge $5 per text link per month. Almost all the slots have been taken, only a couple open.
(Some are for 2-3 months. The new owner would have to honor those ad runs)

There are 14 slots. If all sell (which shouldn't be hard to do). That is $70/month just from the text ads.

I have also added a banner system on the site (but not on the forums currently). I have not sold any yet, but I think depending on how many you get in rotation, you can get an additional $60+ dollars a month from that. But that is just an estimate.

Google Adsense is minimal. Couple bucks a week, at most.

Other

The forums have a yearly license of Invision Power Board. Expires in May. This will be transferred to you if you want.

I will also give you the domains: rd0.net, been.biz, and Devilized.com (Expires really really soon).

Will also include a $7.95 eNom reseller account.

Buyer Notes

I will help in anyway I can to transfer the site to your own hosting if you do not want to keep it at the current hosting.

I will upgrade the forums to Invision Board 2.0 Final if you wish me to. (When its released).

I would recommend NOT converting it to vBulletin. The members are used to IPB, and a lot of work has gone into SEO for the forum.



Also, payment will have to be made either by PayPal, Money Order, or a reputable Escrow service (fees split).
Escrow.com does NOT allow customers from Arizona for some reason. (Says on the sign up page)


Ill answer any questions thrown at me.

Post, PM, or email me: Keith@Kacin.net

Thanks.

I have recently updated the info! (This is from two days ago)

Here is the info. It includes info about the new Member Integration. I have also bought a HiveMail license, and will work that into the database soon.

-------------------------------------------




URL:
http://www.outcasted.com

Info
Outcasted.com is a community started in July 2003. It is constantly growing, and gets new members without any advertising. There are currently 625 Members and 51,678 Posts. The most ever online is 164 Users. The site has many active, loyal users. It has a strong userbase, and its growing everyday.

The site has had a lot of work done to it since it was created. The site has been optimized for search engines. A quick search in Google shows: Results 1 - 7 of about 1,980 for inurl:Outcasted.com. (0.20 seconds). Around 1,980 pages indexed in Google alone. The site is listed in DMOZ ( http://dmoz.org/Kids_and_Teens/Teen_...e_Communities/ ) and thus, many directories across the internet. Marketleap.com shows 5,819 link-pop combined for both "outcasted.com" and "www.outcasted.com".

The site if fully integrated with the member database. I coded this myself, it is not some portal script. You can view the current pages, and the error it returns if you are not logged in.
You may login with the name: "Test Account" and the password: "test" to view the member-protected pages.

The domain is a PageRank 5.

The sale will include a license for Invision Power Board, which expires in May 2005.

Income
We currently sell text links for $5/Month. Comparing to others, that is low for a PR5 text link. I think you could easily sell them for $10/Month. There are currently 14 slots, on all non-forum pages. They usually sell fast.
Banners sell for $20/Month.

Google Adsense doesn't offer much results, because I currently have small ads, well blended in the site.

Of course, the pricing structure can be changed as you wish, when the current advertisers' runs are up.

Stats
Webalizer (This isn't updated automatically. I have to manually copy over files, so it may not always be up-to-date).
http://www.outcasted.com/webalizer/
We had a host change in the end of September 2003, so we lost all stats then. Also, the current host lost all the stats in late Feb.

Alexa:
http://www.alexa.com/data/details/tr...sted.com#graph
As of writing this right now, the Alexa traffic rank for today is: 50,212

Questions/Contact
I would prefer all questions/offers/etc. sent to my email.

This site has been SOLD.


If an admin can edit the two above posts to just say "This site has been sold.", it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
