Metal Music Archive
6 months ago
A website rich with original content written about metal music and bands.
What is included in the sale ?
The entire contents of the site. It is a WordPress site so I will include all active plugins, the active theme, and all the contents in whichever format you prefer.
The site currently includes:
- 35 blog posts
- 110 bands, all with a unique bio and meta information
- 35 guitar tabs
- 164 song lyrics
What is the technological stack ?
Which parts of the project are incomplete ?
The design is a little outdated and the content is not structured in a way that is easy to navigate. Plus it is not monetized.
Do you have any traffic ?
Currently no. The domain expired a few years ago and I have not touched it since. It had a lot of traffic back when it was first being worked on.
Why are you selling ?
I made this site as a side project with an old friend who needed some help at the time. He's a great writer and knows so much about music. He helped build the site and spent weeks writing really good stuff about all the metal bands he knew of. Traffic was really good but then we had to step away and the site was neglected.
I don't want to keep any of the proceeds of this sale. I just know my friend could really use the money right now and since he wrote all the content, I want to surprise him. It would mean a lot to both of us for this site to be reborn and to get something back from the effort we put in back then.
How can the future owner turn the project into a business ?
1. Get a domain (metalmusicarchive.com is what we used but it could be anything)
2. Update the site design to be more modern and mobile friendly
3. Modify how the content is arranged on the site so it is easier to navigate and find bands, lyrics, tabs, news, etc.
4. Monetize, probably via Google Ads but I could see reselling some products working really well too
I would also be happy to consult and help somehow if I can.
