Seller's Notes

Hi there this is Angel Romero of Flash Speaks ActionScript, a Flash blog I’ve ran for the last three years as a hobby.  I still feel that Flash Speaks ActionScript has so much more to offer the Flash community and its users, unfortunately, that free time just isn’t there for me anymore. Over the last year, I haven’t been able to consistently push out quality posts.  In turn, this has led me to put FSA for sale.

History of Flash Speaks ActionScript

I initially started Flash Speaks ActionScript three years ago as a way for me to keep up to date on Flash topics along with an avenue to document my Adobe Flash and ActionScript learnings.   Over that last three years, while providing up to date content, I experimented with affiliate marketing and turned large profits for the little I was putting in. 

In that time as a part time hobby, Flash Speaks ActionScript has reached over 2,000,000 page views, earned over $40,000 and built many industry relationships. 

Opportunities

I believe Flash and ActionScript has built some deep roots in the web and I feel any future posts have the potential on being seen by many.   As we all know, once those roots have thrived, reviving them takes no time at all. In the right hands it can bring about a very targeted audience and in turn potentially resulting in many sales. Whether you continue to leverage the free traffic to sell your products or continue where I left off, there is much there to take advantage of.

How will the handoff happen?

Ownership of all Flash Speaks ActionScript's assets will be transferred to you. Being technically minded, I can assist in transferring the domain and database.  Being this is a WordPress install, the transfer and setup shouldn't take too long at all. 

What you get?

Flash Speaks ActionScript runs on WordPress.  It's super easy to make updates and changes to the site. The site's design and logo are 100% unique and yours to keep.  The site comes with 700+ RSS subscribers, 70+ Twitter followers and 70+ email subscribers.

I am open to any questions that you might.  Feel free to ask them below in the comment form. 

Additional Revenue Details

Generating income on Flash Speaks ActionScript was something of an afterthought and not wildly taken advantage of.  FSA has earned over $40,000 in referral income since 2009 from the Enavto Marketplace, Google Adsense and Jumpeye Components.  WIth having such a targeted audience, I believe with a little A/B testing and further experimentation earning revenue will not be a problem.

Lifetime Income Breakdown

  •    $31,000 - Envato Refferals
  •    $3000 - Jumpeye Components
  •    $850 - Adsense
  •    $2000 - Buy Sell Ads
  •    $4000 Digicraft Components

Besides for the creation of the content and $7/month hosting cost, there was essentially no other costs associated the site.  I strived to get the trust of the community and my users by traditional means of great content and user interaction.

Automated Income

Flash Speaks ActionScript has some resource list posts with Envato affiliate links. This has provided a steady stream of automated income. With the use of a WordPress plugin, you can easily add your own Envato referral ID to begin earning that very same income.

Additional Traffic Details

With over 700+ RSS Subscribers, site feed is being aggregated by popular niche sites including feeds.adobe.com, Developer Center of Adobe.com, flashbookmarks.com, and workflowflash.com which allows for an instant boost of traffic upon each post published.

Notable stats include

  • over 2,000,000 lifetime pageviews
  • 70-75% of the traffic coming from search engines
  • most popular landing pages are money(affiliate) pages

reason for selling and what will it require to maintain this site?

Reason for selling is simply time and other previous engagements. The posting pattern for the last couple of years hasn't been consistent due to time however, a tremendous amount of the traffic is via search.
As for maitenence, it can go in many directions with the type of posts from lists posts, to short one paragraph news update posts, to bi-weekly news roundup post. As is, there is no additional maitenence as there are a handful of resource list posts that on any given month make a few hundred dollars.
Hope this helps!
