themotoringcalendar.co.za is up for sale.
The idea behind the site was to promote any event the had a “motor” in it. So planes, train, bikes, cars, and boats etc.
It does have advertising space in the Banner. All other events on the calendar are for free.
It has space for blogging. The idea is that junior journalists could blog, for free, events that they attended.
It has a donate page to Paypal if anyone is willing to part with a few rands. No one has actually done this.
It has an events submission page which needs a bit of work.
There is a Twitter account linked to 191 followers.
There is an FB Page with 616 likes.
It is tracked with Google Analytics. 621 users last seven days.
I followed and like as many pages as possible. I subscribed to as many emails I could find. These events are then posted to the site. I cross-posted the events to other groups and pages to promote the calendar, usually the events of the coming week.
The WordPress site costs R49.00 per month and is hosted with Paradigm Solutions.
It uses the free version of the Time.ly calendar for WordPress.
The site cost me about R8000.00 created by BinaryMeans. I have invoices somewhere. The domain is registered to me.
Reason for selling.
I do not have the time to do the site justice and I sure it could earn as an extra revenue stream. It was updated in my free time.
I’m not a journalist or publisher and the site was largely as an exercise for me to understand the Social Media arena.
Looking for R23 000.00 to cover costs thus far. Highly Negotiable and open to offers. You could write this off to tax. I can issue a company Tax Invoice, I do not have a VAT no.
You are the first person I’m offering this too and I believe your business is most suited to carry it forward.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
