I am new to this forum and website.
The reason I have signed up is that I am seeking advice on selling my website. Here is some information.
> We are an online business directory for York. Its free to list on the website, however we do offer combined online (Homepage Ads, Monthly Newsletter, Featured Listings, Video) and offline packages (Feature on 10,000 Flyers distributed around York + Dedicated Leaflet drops) <snip link>
> Website Stats:
> Website is 1 year old.
> On average 1,600-2,000 unique visits per month. These are driven by local search terms usually with the word York in the search query
> 280 Businesses registered on the website
> Ranked well on Google & Alexa, given the sites age. For example Free Advertising York is ranked on Page one near the top. PR=2
> Turnover for last year was £5K based on 10-12 hours effort per week
> Business Models are designed to generate 70-80% profit.
> What would be included in the sale
> Ownership of WhyYork.co.uk
> Sub sites include:
> o Classifieds
> o Events (However this is currently offline)
> o Vouchers
> o Blog
> o Other sections can be negotiated.
> Twitter & Facebook Accounts
> WhyYork Video Advert + YouTube Channel
> Training on the above
> Existing Customer Base + Access Database System.
> Any customisation that you would require, ie logo change etc
> ** Please note existing relationships with service providers would not be included and would need to be re-negotiated with. For example graphic designers, content writers & leaflet distributors.
> The new owner can do what they wish with the site, I can help with the transfer however this would incur a fee.
I havent paid myself a salary, the money is sat in the bank less the running costs.
How/What should I sell the site for?
Many thanks for your help in advance!
