Description

Gmotors.co.uk is an established UK car blog that covers all the main motoring news. 

- Short, easy to remember and unique name.

- There are currently over 1500 posts on the site

- Over 10,000 images

-Part of the sale is also a custom classifieds section that was launched on Gmotors.ie, but has been down for over a year now and is pointed to Gmotors.co.uk. It cost us roughly 10k euros to build it. It is 100% custom made for the project. At this stage it needs little tweaking and few updates to the code to make it work.

Those interested please PM me and I am glad to offer more details along with access. Please see the attached screenshots for first look at it. 

The .IE is pointed to the .CO.UK site as it seemed reasonable to point the traffic to a site that is being kept updated. 

-New owner will also get a EU trademark for "gmotors"

- Part of the sale are also all Facebook pages (facebook.com/gmotorsuk, facebook.com/gmotorsie) Twitter accounts (@gmotorsie, gmotorsuk) and a YouTube account GmotorsTV with close to 400 videos and over 800k video views. 

The reason for selling is that I just don't have the time anymore to work on it.

PS! Please spare your time and my time. Questions not related to the auction will be deleted.

I am confident someone with the right mindset, resources and skills will take this project to an all new level! 

Thank You and good luck!

    @HalfShopper
    This is not a membership site. It is a news blog.

    the classified part, which is currently closed had few hundred registered users. all these emails.. etc are still there. These members were emailed once in a while.

    Do you outsource the content writing and photography, and if so what are the costs involved?

    @incka
    I write most of the content myself. small part comes from two contributors who do it because they love the topic. Most photos are press images. Spy shots do cost a little and come from a friend of mine, who would love to continue the deal I have with him today.

    many of you have asked about whether I could help or continue producing the content once the site is sold.
    I am glad to offer my help for two weeks once the site is sold so the new owner can smoothly take it over. Regarding future content we could figure out something, though very likely not on daily basis.
