    Text-message site for sale

    Hello everyone, at the beginning of july, I started a website, www.textyourfriend.com. You can send text-messages to your friends phones. With school starting, I dont have much time to promote or work on the site, not like I'm any good at promoting anyways lol. But anyways, School is starting in 2 weeks, I wont have time for the site, so I am looking to get rid of it.

    I just got it up this month, I've done little advertising.. Telling friends about it, and posting on myspace.com classified ads.. thats about it. It has had 89 unique visitors since then. It's only source for profits right now is adsense. I had planned on making it for advertisers and such to send bulk-messages to their clients, etc.. So I had planned on charging for subscriptions. which, wouldnt be hard to impliment. I had also wanted to make it for pranks, so people could send anonynous messages to friends..

    Visitors: 89

    Features for subscribers:
    Editable contact groups (not done yet)
    Send text-messages to certain numbers or whole groups.
    can see replies from people they have sent messages too.

    Cost to run site: $10 for sms gateway fee

    right now i'm accepting offers, please be serious when making an offer.

    Would you be willing to finish that members area if the site was bought? And what price range are you looking for?

    no...

    Also, My question is this:

    I have looked at the SMS Gateway provider you told me... It says that for 15,000 msg's its about $100.00 (and not $10.00)... but for a regular account its $11.00.. Does the site work on a regular Account??

    Thanks,
    Robert

    no, Developer account is $100 for 15,000 messages. I got my account before they raised their prices. the regular account is just to use their text-messaging program on their site.

    I would of been prepared to pay the BIN price right out but the networks your SMS provider supports seem to only be US ones.

    if you find a Provider in your area, I will re-code the site to work with the new provider.
