Seller's Notes

QBrushes has been one of the main Photoshop Brushes sites since 2008.

It's a well established site/brand.

REASON OF SALE

I'm focused on other projects with no time to invest on this. I think site has potential if it's better exploited.

STATUS

Site doesn't have new posts since Oct 2013. Still traffic keeps pretty stable although over long term has been slightly decreasing naturally since no new content is being added and updates haven't been done.

MONETIZATION

IMPORTANT:

Since this is not my priority I wasn't so into optimizing revenue for this site. That had big impact on sales now that I'm checking.

Two examples are:

  • During 5 months and a half (mid aug-2016 to mid feb-2017) the Shutterstock affiliate program was not working, I just realized in Feb-2017 and fixed it. This was due to an expired CDN I never realized. That's why from sep-2016 to jan-2017 earnings for shutterstock was 0. Aug-2016 and Feb-2017 was working only part of the month.
  • BuySellAds was also neglected since I haven't updated prices according to market tendencies and I haven't sale main ad on March and May this year.

That means that average monthly can be higher than 311$ (as it says it title)  but I can't justify it. Think of $370/400 per month. All this is easily checkable on the proof videos.

METHODS:

  • GOOGLE AdSense
  • BuySellAds (monthly and CPM ads) - Video proof of earnings
  • Fancybar (when you scroll down a bar appears on the top) http://app.fancybar.net/ - Video proof of earnings
  • Shutterstock Affiliate Program - Video proof of earnings

COSTS:

I'm willing to give you 1 year free hosting if you want it. Otherwise your costs will be hosting, if you have other sites this can easily hosted in any server. It doesn't require any big structure to work properly. It has a cache system installed to optimize performance.

CONTENT

Current:

All content on the site has been published taking in consideration the  license under it was originally published. All authors are credited with a link in the site which makes posts totally legal and hassle free. 

New:

New brushes can be obtained from several sources (sites) where they are published in Creative Common or General Public licenses that allows it's publication as long as author is credited.

PLATFORM:

Wordpress 4.2.15

Custom template

Several Plugins

INCLUDES

SITES:

All sites includes domains, databases, files and everything necessary to manage them.

SOCIALS:

  • twitter account: https://twitter.com/qbrushes (+3900 followers)
  • pinterest account: https://www.pinterest.com/qbrushes/ (80 followers)

HOSTING

  • 1 year free hosting (if you want it)

SUPPORT

  • 1 week Support/help migrating and installing accounts, ads and so on. This doesn't mean I will be 24/7 to attend you. However, I will be happy to respond emails and skype messages and address issues that might appear.

Hello,
I've 3 questions :
1- Are you the original owner/creator of the network ?
2- What about qvectors.net ? is it already sold ?
3- When I use your 1 Year revenue breakdown, I find an average of $261 per month ($280 if I count $50 by missing month with shutterstock) and you put $0 cost in the listing. I think you probably need a VPS between $10-$30 per month no ? how do flippa find $311 per month ?

Best regards,

@beal2912
Hi!
1-No, we acquired the sites/network back in 2015.
2. qvectors.net is not included. We are using it.
3-I put 0 cost since I'm giving 1 year free hosting for the site. Flippa found 311 because I begun creating listing on June and it was taking until may. When I finally published I updated data from Adsense (re crawled) and It got that. Anyway, no big difference. I also think that flippa maths are based in 6 months not 1 year.

I see that qbrushes.com redirects to qbrushes.net. Is the com included in the sale?

Sorry, I just saw in the listing that it is included.

Can you offer any insight as to why qfonts doesn't earn much revenue? What about qtextures?

Am I mistaken or does this site include six Google ads per page?

@RenFromPenn yes qbrushes.con is included.
qfonts has never been optimized and pageviews are not significative. However, you can make more money that I have been doing for sure. Check pageviews on listing. Same for qtextures (even less traffic)
Yes, it has 6 ads now.
