Create a forum and sell  Reply with quote  

I was checking websites on sale, in particular forums on sale. I was also checking prices of services like posting service and link acquisition service. I'm wondering; is it possible to pay for these services, create a forum, and then sell it and make profit? Is it possible at least in theory?

In theory I guess - if you find the right chump to buy it. You won't know that till you have made the large expenditure though.

Possible, but very risky would be my judgement.

Most people that would be looking at buying your forum would look at your stats to see if the growth and post count/membership was organic.

My answer would be it would sell but only to someone with little experience.

There is always people out there to buy anything. I even remember a Russian submarine being sold on Ebay :)

However, as the other mentioned, you need to put in quite a bit of effort into the forum before it is attractive for someone else to buy it.

So just having x number of posts and PR x isn't good enough?

active forums have a ton a fresh pages - which google loves lately. you can define text to be anchored in links, so someone can get thousands of links from buying a forum now, but Adsense in forums generates a very low amount of money.

creating a community is the key to a successful forum, whether for yourself or to sell. not too many folks want to buy a forum that doesn't have that "homey" feel. well, i wouldn't want to buy it at least.

but in theory, you could totally do that.

The value of any forum is the value of the community that supports it. An active community of users with money to spend would obviously have some value.

You have to enjoy a subject to make a forum sticky for its members.
I would not like to have to build a forum just to sell on at a later date.
For the money earned a website would be much more fun to build and just as profitable come sale time.

No one will buy forums with good number of posts but dead active members.
