Every competitor wants to know the secret to how our views are so fast and actually continue to work. 7 sites plus our secret system. We literally have a monopoly and that’s the true value of this sale.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 9, 2011
In April, the owner of the website, GuaranteedViral.com, a Tampa, Florida, USA based buzz-marketing and advertising agency, have decided to sell the website by listing it at an Internet Auction on Australian-based auction site Flippa.com.
“The final decision to sell the website was made in March, after seeing how quickly the website got popular when YouTube yet again made a major change that shook up the industry and caused a majority of views sold for YouTube videos no longer worked. Add to that our focus on resellers and being the only company offering ‘fast views’, (more than 50,000 viewers in a 24 hour period), we got swamped with new reseller orders”, commented Maurice Evans, viral marketing expert, business coach and founder of GuaranteedViral.com
“Our main business here at GuaranteedViral.com is creating and implementing full viral marketing campaigns and leading conferences and seminars about marketing. Selling views-only services was simply a side-venture to meet the increasing inquiries and demand. This particular website was set up in October as a spin-off to establish a separate and independent identity for the service. Prior to that, it was a product offered under our primary company brand. The problem, which is a good one to have, is it just keeps growing and growing. We find ourselves allocating more and more time to it. I always knew we would have to sell it off if it took too much of our time. Well, that day has come”, added Evans known as ‘Mr. iGROWyourBiz’.
Evans said it was hard to back out the exact exclusive earnings of the views-only business but estimates the profit would average around $5000 per month. This is because many agencies that farm out work to Evans have the views services mingled in with full marketing budgets. Once the new site was set up, it was easier to see exclusive earnings that came exclusively from resellers of the views-only product line.
With zero dollars spent in advertising, the site made around $4500 in February 2011. However in March, because of their proprietary system, they became one of the few remaining providers whose views still work on YouTube, and the only fast-views seller available online. They immediately saw their income triple to close to $12,000 in 30 days. In the first week of April, they saw almost $5000 in revenue from the same group of resellers.
“Every competitor wants to know the secret to how our views are so fast and actually continue to work. We literally have a monopoly and that’s the true value of this sale. Our empire utilizes 7 different sites and our 'secret sauce', I am selling it all, kit and caboodle. I will even sign a non-compete so there can be a new king of views, and it won’t be me."
“We are servicing 50-100 URLs per week on average from the resellers we currently have, and every day we get inquiries from people who want to buy wholesale from us due to their previous provider no longer being able to service them. I don’t see an end to the growth, so I have to pass it to someone who really wants to take this and run with it”, said Evans.
The company decided to list http://www.BuyViewers.com for sale at Australian based Flippa.com mainly because this is the largest marketplace dedicated to auctioning websites, as well as because they have seen their own client’s previous success using Flippa’s services.
The auction for BuyViewers.com was created with a starting bid of only $1 and it reached $5000 within 12 hours of listing. Even though it is a short 6-day auction and the company will sell to the whomever highest bidder is, the company hopes to see a winning bid that exceeds $100,000 which is much less than the sites fair-market value of $200,000 or more.
The auction ends and will transfer hands on Wednesday April 13, 2011.
