The revenue is generated from two primary sources. The first being TargetFirst advertising (similar to google ads). These ads are shown in three locations, including the top-middle and right-hand side of the website as well as the top of the forums.
Revenue from this is about $7/day ($6.90 if you work it out according the pic, but only $0.13 has been made today according to the stats, so I imagine that will be around $7 by the end of the day). So in essence, the site actually makes over $7/day.
This is equivalent to $2 555 / year
Additionally, text links are sold site-wide (excluding the forums) for $10/mo. Currently there are 5 paying customers. This adds up to $600 / year
Traffic is largely for the photoshop tutorials we offer, there are over 90 of them. The traffic comes largely from good-tutorials.com and pixel2life.com as well as a couple of other tutorial indexing sites.
Return traffic is quite large, and the forums we have help contribute to that. We have about 2-3 new sign-ups per day and are up to over 650 members and over 7000 posts.
TRAFFIC SCREEN SHOTS
Please note that the site was switched over to my servers late June, thats the reason for limited back-stats. July is obviously the best month to use for reference. Stats were taken on July 26, and are update to July 25th.
The site is essentially a webmaster's resource. It is based largely around photoshop tutorials, of which we have over 90. It also has small PHP and HTML/CSS tutorial sections.
Stat info is available above. The site has CMS for adding tutorials and news (although the news recently crapped out, and we had to revert back to posts from June... this issue has been resolved)
With the purchase of the site you will receive all the files needed including all PHP files, SQL database files, PSD source files, and forum files. Additionally you'll get the information for the VB license turned over to you (its liscensed yearly and has about 8 months left I believe).
Of course of one the greatest parts about this site is the community forums which are growing daily. A weekly "Sig of the Week" contest is quite popular and is run by volunteer forum staff. Additionally, I've started a monthly contest with a prize. This month was a "Design a SweDesignz.com Background" contest which you can read about at the site.
If you have any other questions please feel free to PM me or post respectably here.
One question bound to be asked is why I am selling. In all honesty, I had acquired this site hoping to keep it. Unfortunately, I'm about to start my second year in Software Engineering and need the money for tuition and rent.
