Sites Established: 1999
Site design: It took two professional designer several months to create and perfect the current look of the site. The portal has gone through several revamps over the years to keep it up-to-date and enhance its appearance.
Just to come up with the ideal logo took us several weeks. We had several graphic designers coming forward with different ideas and creating sample logos (all logos will be give to purchaser).
Traffic statistics: 5,000 unique visitors a month.
Site demographics: Most people who visit 1Lit.com are university graduates and aged 35+. They are financially solvent and spend far more money online than younger surfers.
Source of traffic: Until recently 1Lit.com hosted a tremendously popular literary ezine which ran for several years. A European ezine ran at 1Lit.co.uk and North American one at 1Lit.us. With over 50,000 loyal subscribers, the domains had hundreds of sites linking to them because of their award-winning content. Most of the links are still there.
We have also spent thousands of dollars buying permanent links to the 1Lit suite of domain names at numerous quality web directories. Even if you were never to spend a penny more on promoting the site, it would continue to pull in at least 2,000 unique visitors a month for years to come. Those links to the 1Lit domains will be there forever: even ten years down the line they will be sending traffic to 1Lit. Unlike other websites, we have invested a huge amount of time and money into 1Lit.com to ensure its long term profitability.
There are thousands of references to the 1Lit sites in search engines. You can check how many sites mention and link to the 1Lit domain names in Google and Yahoo. Due to the enormous number of backlinks to 1Lit.com it ranks on the first page of Google, Bing, Yahoo etc. for a number of search terms. It takes a phenomenal amount of time and money to get so much exposure for a site.
Additional Information: Arts/Literature is often the top category in most directories and, because our domains begin with a '1' they are usually listed at the very top of this section! The 1Lit domain names are extremely valuable for this reason: most surfers click on the very top site and domain names beginning with a '1' have a huge advantage over other sites.
Net revenue per month: $200 profit a month. Until now, we have been concentrating on drawing traffic to the site and providing a quality user experience rather than monetizing the traffic. The amount of income the site generates could be increased. From a survey we did a few months back, the audience is mainly highly-educated, middle-aged people from Western countries. They are affluent and among the highest online spenders.
