Touch a value for a description
Hey guys. You are probably wondering why I am selling this site - I am currently in my 4th year of university and have been quite busy with school, which does not really allow me to spend the time necessary to work/improve the site. Also, due to the current economic situation, ad rates have dropped 35-40%, and I do not have the funds to continue supporting the site. I also listed an ad for FileSend here on Oct. 10 and ended up with a fake winning bid, so that's why I am relisting.
I currently own 6 servers (each consisting of 8x750 GB hard drives in RAID-10, costing near 20k) and colo in the PacificRack datacenter in LA. We currently have a 1Gbps line with them, and push roughly 90% of that; however, this usage can be reduced tremendously due to the high usage from Middle Eastern users (who are currently exploiting my scripts) with low revenue returns. At the moment, I am working with a programmer in securing my scripts, and can see as much as a 40-50% reduction in bandwidth usage. We are paying $6500 total ($500 for a full cabinet of colo space and $6000 for the 1Gbps).
I am looking for a quick sale at a good price for both the buyer and myself; however, I am looking for someone who is interested and capable of fully supporting FileSend (adding servers/bandwidth, hiring programmers, etc) as I do not want to see my work go to waste.
Additional Revenue Details
FileSend currently makes revenue from two sources: subscriptions and ads. Currently, ads account for most of the revenue made, but subscriptions increase as traffic increase. In September, FileSend made $10,402.73 from AdBrite, $2,130.07 from Tribal Fusion, and $2,148.97 from ValueClick Media. However, the current financial crisis has our advertising revenue reduced 35-40% beginning in the month of December until now. This has caused us to operate at a loss/breakeven for the past couple of months, and I simply do not have the funds to invest until things turn around. I will provide more info to potential buyers upon request.
Additional Traffic Details
Most traffic to this site is from referrals - people uploading files and sending to others through email, or posting them on the web. I will provide access to Google Analytics upon request.
