I just snagged the fan club.com site for Lin Yu Chun

37 replies
If you haven't seen this video yet - you will.

The next Susan Boyle is a Taiwanese Boy who sings like Whitney Houston.


I just bought the domain: www. linyuchunfanclub . com

Anyone have any suggestions how to best monetize it?

      You could always set up a genuine fan club site. Talk to his recording company - see if you can strike a deal for a discount for members + commission.

      You'd better be quick - he's a boy, his voice will break soon!

          Nope, 17.

          Buy a nice template for the site, make it all nice, and get your website onto that youtube video which has 600k+ views.

            Great ideas Shaun! Thanks.

            Where would you buy a nice template? Wordpress or what?

    WOW - nice snag! I would personally set it up as a Fan Site on a magazine style WordPress theme, install WP-robot, auto post those videos, hand-write some quality articles / bios type information on the kid...install ADS, have an ADVERTISING paid section for others who want to pay you to advertise...after you get some traffic or before you get some traffic, give em an early bird special just before you start marketing

      Really admire this guy.

      Just amazing at how much undiscovered Talent there is out there!!

      With good management, this Taiwanese Boy will be the next Millionaire to come out of the Music Industry.

      Let's just hope they manage the pressure placed on him, better than it was managed for Susan Boyle

    I'm too slow with the site generation. I've decided to sell the domain on Flippa. Is it ok to post the link in this thread or in my signature?

    Flip it. It's not gonna be that popular for a long time. Unload it on someone for top dollar now. The longer you sit on it, the less it will be worth. In my humble opinion.

      Thanks Coach. I listed the domain only on Flippa.com for $1 with a low reserve. Lot's of views but no bids yet. 5 day auction only. Maybe I should have made it a 3 Day auction.

    Erggggggg!!!!!

    WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

    This auction has 0 bidders and I'm only asking $1.00

    I even have the reserve at $1.00 - so I'm taking a risk that I'll have to give it away and lose the $20 listing fee and $20 Featured fee.

    Lots of views, but only 1 watcher and no one has asked any questions.

    How can I get some bidding started on this auction?

    I've revised my auction title and stuff - (nice that you can do that after an auction has gone live - wonder if I lose that ability after the first bid comes in. . .)

    I can't help you with your sale but while you are waiting for it to sale I'd quickly write a few articles using this keyword phrase "Lin Yu Chun Fan Club" and submit them to EZA, Goarticles.co, Articlesbase and Buzzle in order to drive to drive traffic to the domain.

    If you can show that your domain is alreeady receiving a good amount of traffic it will increase the percieved value.

      Don't these sites take 4-5 days to approve and publish? I only have 3.6 days left on this auction.

        For Ezinearticles.com yes, there will be a delay especially with this being the weekend but some of the other sites are instant approval.

        If yo have a Twitter or Facebook account you can also send out a notification that your domain is for sale.

            No. I guarantee its a con job. They will want it appraised or something. Might even pay with stolen funds and you lose x2.

            Think about it...

            Why make a big offer when they could make a big bid to get it for less?

    The domain isn't really worth anything.

    There are still lots of names around, just as good.

    I would slap a YouTube video surounded by adsense, drive some traffic, get it ranked and then sell it.

    yeah - finally got my first bid! (thanks, mysterious wf friend )

    In answer to my own question about editing after a bid - here's the verbiage from flippa.com after I hit the edit listing button:

    NOTE: You can only edit a limited subset of the fields on your auction, since bidding is now in progress. Pricing fields are editable, but the remainder are locked.

      Hi Mostly Harmless,

      Just in case you're referring to me, which I'm not saying you are, I am not the bidder. My user name at Flippa is the same I use here at WF.

      In hindsight, if you didn't have a bid or if the bid is still below your reserve, you can simply end the auction with no winner. Yes you lose your $20 listing fee, but you get to keep the domain if you feel its worth more than the listing fee.

      Sorry to hear of your troubles.
