Why are we selling?
With both founders having other full-time commitments, we're looking for a new owner who wants to take the site to the next level.
Do I need programming or marketing experience to operate this website?
Operating this website requires no programming or marketing knowledge at all. Blog posts and events can be published through WordPress, which is pretty straightforward and doesn't require coding skills.The current editor may be interested in staying on board and potentially expanding his commitment if the new owner is interested. Jobs are being published by customers through Jobamatic.
Other than that, the service is fully automated, with syndication of all blog posts to Twitter, Facebook, and the RSS feed.
Does the website require any technical maintenance?
The scripts require no technical maintenance at all. It is set to run on auto-pilot, therefore it only requires an editor to publish new content through its WordPress interface. Any changes to the site can be done through WordPress.
How is the sale going to take place?
We accept escrow.com which is secure and is also recommended by Flippa. We will cover all escrow and Flippa fees. Buyer will not pay any fees.
