The problem is I don't know if its for sale. The website hasn't been updated in 18 months and has no advertisement or revenue sources (which I plan to introduce if I can buy it). The problem is I've emailed the 'whois' owner and also the webmaster 2 weeks ago but so far not had a reply.
In my email I told him I would be prepared to pay a fee although I didn't say how much. How much should I offer this guy?
If anyone has any experience (good or bad) of either buying a website or alternatively, anyone who knows of ways I can convince him to sell up I would be grateful for your input.
mention that you are a fan and the site hasn't been updated in 2 years, say that you're bored and you've got some free time on your hands, you'd like to take over all the hassle and responsibility of updating the site, that you're interested in the subject and it's your hobby.
A fellow I know with a niche site is asking a grand for his site. For a reference point, the site is #1 for its keyword.
It has a history on the web, and was once an active forum site.
Lack of maintenance of general screw-ups have reduced the site to about 3 pages with no real content,
and the forum users got tired of losing their threads so they migrated elsewhere. The forum is dead right now.
All that for a grand.
I wouldn't buy it, however. It's just as easy and less expensive to set up my own community site.
