Who wants a (fairly decent) domain name for nowt?

by KarlWarren 24 replies
My renewal is nearly up and I haven't got the time to dedicate to
ineedagoodlaugh.com

So I'm willing to give it away - at a price (no money needed)

The price:

Post your best tip for monetising a humour site...

I'll choose my favourite answer later today.

----------------------
No content/databases/hosting come with this offer - I don't have time to set anything up. It's the domain only.

If you're interested, post here in the thread.

It's hosted with GoDaddy, so I can push it to you for free if you're with them.

    first it would be adsense...that relate to other comic sites...
    and second you could make some small joke collection ebooks...that you would release every week/month and sell it for 15-20$ a piece.
    another option would be selling stand-up comedy dvds as an amazon affiliate, and put links on your website

    I'd post a joke a day on a blog type site with rotating ads for Amazon humour related books.

      I'd find youtube videos with certain themes and thend find affiliate programs within those themes. example: A funny video of someone getting soaked in a storm ( or with a super soaker) and then an affiliate program for umbrella, or raincoats, or galoshes, or even to make it funnier, for scuba gear.

          Karl,

          As you can see I'm well qualified to run a joke site and make money with it.

          I bear a startling resemblance to Big Mike. This will mean I will steal all his customers to ineedagoodlaugh.com. Man its money in the bank.

          They will think I'm him when they see my picture on the site. Those guys buy everything he puts out. So anything I have there is a sure sell. Including forged signature of Big Mike on my picture. I'm thinking $100.00 a pop easy.

          Then set up a subscribe service (for a monthly fee) for getting a joke a day delivered directly to the subscribers e-mail. Each joke would have a link to the site and to a product.

          Steal the great ideas from the other guys that have posted here and add them to the site. Thanks guys and gals for a great business plan :p

          I would add a section of all the Warrior Pictures for a place to use as a virtual throw a dart. This way all the members from the WF would go there and subscribe.

          I would set it up so others could post their jokes for a small fee. With a link back to their site. To encourage them to do it have a monthly contest for the best joke with a free signed photo of me as grand prize. Now is that a winner or what?

          Actually I might would put up a 1st prize ($25.00) 2nd prize $20.00 and 3rd prize ($15.00) My signed photo would be grand prize of course.

          Continue to develop the site with people paying to place their advertising on the site for related products.

          Now is this a business plan or what.


          Now it's time for me to go beg.

            hmm

            Maybe a joomla type site where people can post their own jokes therebye generating content without lifting a finger.

            Sprinkle a few affiliate links (for added income)

            send out a joke of the day to people wanting to join the list. (thereby generating said list)

            Cheers
            Kim

              Hey Kim,

              You sure are smart. That's another good idea for me to steal. As I'm sure Karl knows a winner when he sees one. As soon as he signs the domain over to me I will add your idea and send you my autographed picture with the rights to send out to your all your members. Of course you will have to leave the link to my ineedagoodlaugh.com.

              Your such a good person I can't understand why anybody would say you're a grouch :p

              Love ya,

              Ken
              P.S. don't tell my wife

                  Ken, for the great laugh, you've won the domain... pls PM me the usual info needed to push and I'll do it later tonight. One condition, you never publish that pic again.

                    Karl,

                    The absolute best idea for the domain would be to use humorous quotes from, mostly, dead famous people.

                    Set it up as a "quote-a-day" type site.

                    Now, like yourself, I don't have time to set it up and effectively market it. I therefore suggest you give it to "What's-his-face" Leatherman.

                    If we're fortunate and blessed he'll become so involved with it we'll never have to hear one of his "jokes"--or see his weird graphics--again!

                    Elmer

                    PS. I noticed you've done so, but, as I had already blocked-out this post I decided to use it. It certainly wouldn't fit elsewhere on the forum.

                    "Waste not, want not" as my granny used to say.

                    Hey Kevin,

                    I'll send you your money just as soon as I hook 100 Warriors into signing up for being affiliates to sell my picture their sites. $100 a pop and I will give you 1/10th of 1/10th of the last 1/10th that comes in.

                    I have also told Big Mike you made me do it. You can expect a visit from his cousins Vinny and Louie from Sicily about zero dark thirty tonight.

                    Please get the push done before they get there. They are knows to work on fingers and elbows.

                    Now I'm off to work on my new domain.

                        Karl,

                        That isn't Wagenheim. It is the "Live WebCam" from "Leatherman Central."

                        Ken is currently demonstrating his extreme patience when confronted with a technical issue.

                        Elmer

                        Ps. Ken's much calmer than me under the same circumstances.

                                  Hey Karl,

                                  Being the Old Geezer I tend to forget what I said 2 minutes ago much less what I did yesterday. If Elmer and John would do their job of coming by the home and reminding me like they should then I would most likely not do it then either.

                                  John, Elmer said it's your turn to change my diaper, he gets to wipe the dribble off my shirt.

                                  Oh yeah Karl you wanted to do something what was it again? I have everything else wrong but not PMS. Then again I probably do and just forgot about it. That's what you wanted me to do was PMS right?

                                  Wait, I feel it coming on, yes here it is, ooopppps that wasn't PMS. John another diaper please.

                  Look Karl even Kim said I should have the site. I know her vote is more important than yours so just pass it on over here.

                  BTW please consider this not as a bribe but as an ethical way for you to pick me, I will send you my portrait with the rights for you to say you are Big Mikes twin brother and you will be able to take advantage of his customers with my picture.

                  ooopppsss! not advantage of but add true value to their life.
