    Hi Everyone

    Had some interest in this a few months ago, but never got round to making a deal. We had one offer of £4k & another of £4.5k from members on here.


    The reason for selling is due to the number of other projects we are running & to be truthful we've not had time to even scratch the surface of this since buying for £7k last year. No advertising costs & it still gets frequent new signups. Database includes the 5000+ REAL members that have already joined.

    Massive potential in such a booming sector.

    We also have the .com version which will be included.

    Looking for offers for everything, or prepared to consider a lower price & retain a % of silent ownership in the project

    PM any questions.
    Thanks

    Is it just displaying spareroom.co.uk's rooms to rent?
    Seems heavily overpriced to me I am afraid...

    No, all the adverts are from members registered directly with us. We are not just displaying adverts from another site.

    Every advert posted is a registered member on our site, I guess some members might post adverts on multiple websites if they are looking to rent quick etc..

    Hi, I noticed it hasn't had any search traffic hardly since april 2012 when it looks like the traffic dropped to nothing. See traffic report below :

    Could you let us know how you get advertisers to place their rooms for rent, do you pay for advertising?

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the message, to be honest I think we need to put a little more work into this project/websire before looking for further offers. We've owned the website for the past year since purchasing & not spent anything advertising it/ no ppc used etc to gain any members. Just a clean up on its appearance.

    We need to get analytics in place shortly & perhaps leave it for 6/12 months which will give a better indication of exactly where the new members are coming from. At this point I honestly couldn't tell you the source of the visitors , but it's not ppc/paid advertising.

    Thanks, & apologies to anyone looking to know this information. I will get on the case with finding out.
