This Site is For Sale

Written by bloggermark
FOR
SALE

Hello, All.

As you know I’ve been running the site for a year now, and I must say it’s been an enriching and rewarding experience. Getting to know so many of you has been the best part. But now I have found myself increasingly invested in Web development projects on my weekends and evenings. Since I work a full-time job and am raising a family, I really have no time to manage this site any longer. So, I have made the difficult decision to relinquish control of this site and put it up for sale.

There are numerous models by which a profit could be obtained from operating the site, from a small fee to play in tournaments to retailing of iPhone/iPad third-party products, to placement of blog ads. With nearly 7,000 subscribers and monthly unique visits exceeding 100,000, this is a highly marketable site.

My initial asking price is $1,000, and I will entertain multiple offers if they’re presented. However, price is not the only factor. The last thing I want is to see the site turned into a spammer URL or a link farm, so I have some strict requirements for the turnover.

  1. The primary purpose of the site must remain dedicated to WWF community and tournaments for a minimum of 1 year.
  2. I will require a criminal background check and references.
  3. All registered subscribers will be notified of the change in ownership via email and be given the opportunity to “opt-out” in advance of the transfer.

The sale transfer will include the site technology (databases, PHP code, Web pages, etc.), registered user info, and domain registrations for wordswithfriends.net and wordswithfriends.org. However, it should be noted that Zynga With Friends (the makers of the Words With Friends iPhone app) likely have a defensible claim to the domain name rights. While they have been tolerant of my use of these domain names in the past, it cannot be assumed they will do so indefinitely. In a worst case scenario, you might need to reestablish the site under a different domain name.

All told, I think this is a great opportunity for anyone looking to have some fun running the site and making some cash in the process. If you are interested in purchasing this site, please contact me (Mark Montoya) through the Contact Form.

Cheers!

    You have opened the eyes for many of us to how wonderful WWF can be with so many different opponents. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience over the past year and have made many new friends.

    I do hope that the next owner/administrator will be as responsive and fair as you have been.

    It has been a true pleasure Mark!
