Adnan, the owner of Blogtrepreneur.com, informed me a month ago that he had decided to give up blogging and he would be selling his flagship blog, Blogtrepreneur.com.
Adnan has decided to first offer the blog to his readers to see if he can “keep it in the family” and sell it to someone who already reads and knows his blog. If he doesn’t get the price he wants there, he’ll move it to the traditional option of a Sitepoint sale.
You can read about the Blogtrepreneur.com Sale here.
Blogtrepreneur.com is a great blog and nearing 1000 daily RSS readers. Getting 1000 RSS readers is VERY hard, especially in the hyper competitive online marketing and blogging industry, so if you were considering starting a blog on these topics and you want a very good head start, this blog sale represents a great opportunity.
Adnan wants low five figures for the blog. Considering it takes most bloggers at least a year minimum to build a blog to the point Adnan has (or really I should say – most bloggers never build their blog to this point), this is an option for an investor who wants to fast track their entry into the upper levels of the blogosphere and hopefully, continue to grow the site even further.
Adnan states that the site made over $600 in October of this year, so with a low five figures price he is asking more than the average that sites go, but given the sale price of recent blogs bloggingfingers.com ($6000) and Onemansgoal.com ($8500), it’s not that unrealistic.
To be honest I think the site is under monetized as well – I think you could raise the income to $1000 a month within a month or two after buying it and of course I’d be adding an email newsletter opt-in form to start building a list to further monetize the site.
I wish Adnan the best of luck with the sale and if you are interested in buying go check out his sale post.
