Chris, sorry, I wasn't aware it was private. Your site didn't seem to have a robots.txt or meta block and it's already ranking in Google (as is this thread! Chicken or egg, I don't know)
Very frankly? I would like to see an acknowledgement from sellers of products in this space recognisingI'd also love to hear what people in the industry would like to see for content at an event like this
1. That between crap at Flippa, scattered listings elsewhere and ridiculously overpriced brokers, it is extraordinarily difficult to find decent sites
2. That the flipping ship has pretty much sailed. Flipping sites are closing and even Flippa probably regrets their choice of name now.
3. That there are more and more seller scams and these are getting more sophisticated
4. That if you don't already have lots of experience you'll likely get scammed (i.e. no place for n00bs)
5. That it will take you hundreds of hours of searching to find a decent investment ($200 sites aren't "investments" to people paying $1,500 a go)
6. That even after hundreds of hours you may fail because there's a lot, lot more competition now (partly because of products such as your own)
7. That if you're new, withdrawing $10 bills and selling them for $5 will likely make you more profit than getting into buying websites
8. That the best place to go and talk about website buying and selling is not some closed gate private affair but a certain very public and free forum (I've read numerous ebooks and seen plenty of videos on site buying/selling and it's funny how the best free resources aren't mentioned in those products)
You guys have some great content and you've bought in some more good stuff such as posts by Eppie and Travis. Stay focused on quality even if that quality means calling the industry as it is rather than talking up the "potential".
At the risk of sounding egotistical, I was probably the first person with this problem (time cost of people writing in for advice on buying/selling/valuing sites) and I was dealing with scores of emails every week. Then I started this forum and for the last couple of years have been sending out a boilerplate reply telling them to sign up and ask here as they'll be better served by getting a range of advice from various experts and that these replies together with mine will be publicly available to help others in their position.Personally, I love it - it's a massive ego boost and I make a point of answering everyone, but some people need more than a few emails to answer their question; You get to 6pm and realise you've spent the last two hours composing emails which takes you away from your main business. You can either be a jackass and start ignoring people, or...
