Okay.

I'm embarking a big new project, and need all the capital possible, so I think I may sell this forum if I receive enough for it. If not, I'll just keep it and figure out money some other way.

Don't worry! I will remain a moderator and quite active in the community! ;-D


Here are the details.... Please PM highest offers. There's also an auction on Sitepoint so you can bid there/know I will be receiving other bids.

http://marketplace.sitepoint.com/auctions/58191

Basic Information:

- Google PR 4 Domain (check @ DomainPageRank.com)

- 11,000 - 12,000 uniques/month. (3 month average)

- All organic traffic from Google, Yahoo, MSN.

- Great SERPs; try typing in 'gears of war 2 forums' into Google --> 1st hit for most competitive keyword.

- Huge database of 1,800+ members. About 10-20 new ones per day.

- Forum is fully moderated for free. Runs itself, I do little to no moderation, but I'm sure the community would appreciate your activity!

- Finding moderators is incredibly easy, I just throw up a post and ask people to PM me who are interested, and my inbox explodes.

- Great Alexa Rank:

http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traff ... forums.com

Gearsofwar2forums.com has an Alexa Traffic ranking of: 282,430



Self-Promoted:

- Organic traffic/ traffic from search engines bring in the majority of the traffic, I do no promotion at all currently.

- Free and permanent advertisments:

a) GearsofWar.Xbox.Com (PR 7 site)

Go to community --> Fansites --> Click 'Gears of War 2 Forum'

This site is the second largest website contributor of traffic.

b) Gearsofwar.wikia.com (PR 7)

Click large square banner on the right that says 'Gears of War: Official Forums'

Produces the most traffic for a contributing website.

c) Gearsofwar.xbox.com (PR 7)

Go to Community --> Bottom left under 'Fansites' I'm on a rotation --> Click 'Gears of War 2 Forum'

These 3 advertisements are the 3 largest contributors of traffic besides search engines. They are all free, and unconditional, except the wikia.com one. I have a sticky post in the 'General Discussion' section of my forum. That must stay there in order for my ad to stay on his site.



I do no promotion, it takes care of itself. If you have the time and effort to invest into promoting it, this site definitely has the potential to explode even more.



Revenue:

- Private advertising brings in about $300/mo through selling the following:

a) Banner Ads (there are 4 locations that are all sitewide)

b) Text links (bottom of the page). I have 2 recurring right now at $15/mo each. So that's $30.

c) Sticky Posts.

d) Mass E-Mail Blasts to all members. I have sold a few of these and made over $250 every time. I don't like to do more than 1-2 per month because then they start to lose their value.

e) I have also considered managing a tournament from the site, a bunch of people said they'd be willing to paypal $10/team. Get a couple dozen teams together and that's solid revenue. Just never had the time.

Contracting private advertisers is relatively easy because the site is a PR 4, so people want the links in. However, sometimes it can be challenging with my limited time, in which case I put some Adsense up.

Adsense brings in between $40-$60/month when I have it running, but I like to take my ads down occasionally because they are unappealing.

In order to find private advertisers I throw up posts on DP, here, and some other forums just offering what I have. I also browse the WTB at similar sites and send them PM's.

** I currently have the following:

- 3 people interested in banner ads.

- 1 person interested in mass e-mail.

I'm willing to hold off on their ads, and give their contact info to the new owner, which should get them off to a nice start.

If you can't get people to advertise for whatever reason, you'll be making the $30 from the two text links provided they stick around (which I'm sure they will), along with some adsense, making it out to be about 100 doing NOTHING. Some promotion and selling techniques could easily have you making 300-600/month in no time, I mean I've done it before, it's just a matter of finding the advertisers.

I know the past owner of Cod4Forums.com and Cod4boards.com - 2 sites incredibly similar to this one. They are now worth over 20k, and started out with the same success this site has been having. It's a great investment. Selling only to fund my next project/lack of time.
