As I indicated yesterday I have consolidated most of my online presence over at www.citizenstrategist.com. In step with this consolidation is my intention to sell this blog, it's content, workshop format and the paid subscription business model.
I will run Citizen Strategist for a few more months as an open site - after which I will password protect it and use it for clients and associates only.
I started blogging in 2004 more as an experiment and to test a business model. The blog grew slowly but steadily - I never promoted it. My business is campaigning - most of it off the radar screen. I work with a small network of associates and clients and do not have a need for the visibility of a blogging platform.
The best fit for this deal is likely a medium to large agency or consultancy looking to develop or expand it's online presence. Who ever purchases it gets an influential marketing strategy blog and subscription web site with more than 600 postings, hundreds of daily readers, 500+ newsletter subscribers, excellent Google juice, and links with many influential marketing bloggers. It's content rich, and the focus is on competitive and accountable marketing campaigning.
There are the three deals I'm talking to potential buyers about:
1. Blog only - $250k
2. Blog + vSente's Armory - $500k
3. Blog + vSente's Armory + IP (Manual/Wizards/Workshops) - $750K + 10% royalty
Here are links to each of the components:
3. Workshop Format
I will sign a non-compete. And there is a potential for some form of ongoing but limited collaboration.
If you're interested in discussing a deal email me. Thanks.
