A quick follow up to my post on, "VoIP Action Hits the Auction Block
". After curiosity got the best of me I decided to email VoIPAction.com founder Chris Lewis to have some questions answered.
My first question was "What's your reason for selling VoIPAction.com?"
Chris replied, "Our reason for selling is that our core business is a news technology platform (in fact it powers the www.voipaction.com news channels)."
"We've been using www.voipaction.com to test delivery of that service over the past 12 months, and to test various approaches including how to drive free organic search engine traffic through automated news. That testing phase is now complete and we are moving forward to commercialize that business. VoIPAction just has much greater value to a VoIP industry business than it does to us now. The real value of the site is its' highly targeted traffic, 75% of which is brand new people every month."
He then provided some respectable monthly and annual search and visitor stats the site has driven through Google.
My second question was in regards to what an established VoIP portal website goes for these days?
I won't disclose the asking price, but Chris wasn't shy about it.
Chris added, "The site is completely automated and has zero monthly maintenance costs other than hosting. Price includes a perpetual (free) license for our news platform which updates www.voipaction.com continuously, 24/7, with the latest VoIP news."
It should be noted VoIPAction has a Google page rank of 6/10, Alexa rank 639,275 and a Technorati rank of 208,948. So if you are a serious buyer interested in the purchase of www.voipaction.com
you can contact them via firstname.lastname@example.org
I also want to say thanks to Chris for answering my questions in a timely manor and the kind words he had about VoIP Monitor. We wish you the best of luck in the future.
