    How many communites have you sold?

    Greetings,

    When I was 13 years old I had a Invisionfree community and had it very popular but couldn't sell it becouse it was against their rules. Later when I came to know about phpBB and IPB. I brought a host and a made a community about TEENS i made it very popular in the late 14s , I sold the website on 2004 for $200. I wish I shouldn't of sold it becouse it has now more than 1500 members and is worth in $1500. Anyways , what do you think of building communities and selling them off at a very good profit?

    I have sold about 5 communities. I just sold one recently for $320.

    How many have you sold and what do you think of it?

    I have sold probably 5 or 6. I don't regret it. I spent the money wisely, and was worth it.

    I haven't sold one yet. It'd be nice if I could get the few that I've started a little more popular.

    I sold my discuss GTA one due to lack of motivation, I got $70 which was small, but better than keeping it...it also gave me something to add to my sold page on redcamen

    I now have 2 new forums I'm promoting....Forum Teens (teen forum...though I'd give a try at it). I'm also doing a shoutcast one (link in sig)....which has been open a few days but already got about 8 members for the quick ad methods i've used!

    Anyways , what do you think of building communities and selling them off at a very good profit?
    Fun and profiting.

    You really need to think where you're going to get members from other wise they're just going to be empty!

    I've started an airsoft one with a friend. http://forums.airsofters.co.uk
    We don't plan on selling it in a hurry, much more likely to sell advertising on it, if it takes off it won't be bad, a forum all wanting to buy airsoft gear, almost all in the UK... Retailers dream.

    I view it as a waste of time to build something then sell it, unless you are getting a good amount of money..

    Personally I wouldn't sell any of my sites, I am looking on the long term investment..

    Peace,
