Talking Funny Pic Website for sale

1. Your name:Nick Hanlon
2. URL of site http://www.giggledygoop.com
3. Age of site approx. 5 months

4. Approximate monthly page views and/or unique visitor
~3000 uniques daily and ~24,000 pageviews a day
5. How does site generate income? How much?

Banners, text links, newsletter ads, Mailbits, TAF forms.
~$500 for October.

6. Who develops content and how much time does it require?

Content is assumed public domain funny pictures, doesn't take much time to collect. I work on the site maybe 3-4 hours a week. Only work that is required is sending out a newsletter every other day. more newsletters = more money.

7. Reason for selling

I have another humor site and running two of them has become too much work. I tried selling this site at the beginning of september but I did not meet my reserve price. I have now removed the reserve on the auction and bidding starts at $320.

8. Will you help with the transition of the site to the new owner?

Yes. I'll help as much as possible until they're comfortable with handling the site.

9. Does the site have an e-zine or newsletter? Number of subscribers?

Yes. It has over 10000 subscribers.

10. The asking price for the site

I currently have it on an ebay auction found here:
http://cgi.ca.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayIS...ndexURL=0&rd=1

There is no reserve on this auction and the minimum bid is $320.
Thank you.

Nick


P.S. Wasn't sure if I am allowed the ebay link, I hope I have not broken any forum rules.

You are earning $500/month and you're selling your site for $320, am I missing something? Why sell below what you earn?

Question

Where is the traffic coming from?

If you have high traffic sites that you are linking this site too, that is not as good as getting legitimate traffic from search engines.

The traffic is coming from the large newsletter of 10 000 subscribers who I send out to every day.

How did you get so many subscribers in the first several months? These people must have found your site somehow. How?

Do you own or are affiliated with other humor web sites that is promoting this site?

I bought co-regs. Everyone on the funpage business does it.

Thats not good. I thought these were people who went to your site interested in your "product" and decided to sign up on their own.

Maybe you aren't familiar with the definition of "Co-Regs"? The user has a checkbox with which they can choose to sign up or not to sign up for a service. Sure, this isn't quite the same as them visiting the site and signing up for it, but it can still be highly targetted and highly ethical.

Disclaimer: I'm not endorsing this auction to be either good or bad, I'm just explaining co-registrations.

Anyone can just purchase subscribers, no? This site does not have a steady flow of traffic coming from anywhere besides this mailing list.

I'm not familiar with co-reg lists....

When you buy a co-reg list, I presume that people haven't actually registered for your specific site have they? What have they actually registered for? Is it some sort of generic checkbox which says something like "send me emails from other sites I might like"?
