I have a website that, by most people's standards, would be considered more than decent. The site has earned $45k over the last 6 years (90% of it profit) and that too despite a signficant lull in earnings because of rather long period of neglect due to poor health (between 2013 and 2016). However, now that I have recovered fully, I am highly confident the site will get back earnings to former levels, and far beyond.
There is a website in the UK (its open to overseas investors as well) who get investors and investment seekers together. I need investment to grow the site. Doing this by myself I can only do so much and I need quality writer with actual background in the subject area, to come on board. I may also use some of the funds for advertising purposes. These require money. The site's earnings are starting to go up but I need some funds right now because I have some really unique plans which I can only execute with some funding.
I have two questions:
1) Will these type of investors invest in a website?
2) How much should I give away for 20%. I have no real yardstick to judge by as to how much I should seek in giving away 20%. I may undersell myself here.
