What is Swapp?
Swapp is a website that lets guests at dinners choose their own seating plan. They sign up to an event and sit at any table. Once everyone has chosen a seat, they can swap anybody with anybody else, creating their own seating plan. Each person pays a fee to swap, typically £0.50. Once someone is swapped their price will go up, typically to £1.00 and in £0.50 increments for every movement. Everyone can keep swapping until the day before the event. At a random time the day before the event, swapping will close. The seating plan at that point in time will be sent to the host. Whoever each pair is sat opposite at that point in time, they get to eat dinner with.
It is typically used for university club dinners and also private dating events.
I have earned approx. $1800 from the website
Historical page views?
When there are events page views are high. I experienced circa 15,000 page views in 4 days for our first event. The remaining period has limited views
Why are you selling ?
The marketing for new events is time intensive and my full-time job is far too demanding currently. I feel like I have achieved what I want from the project. I feel there is a lot of opportunity to grow the revenues if you are willing to invest the time but for me the time investment required isn’t justified when I want to focus on my career.
How can the future owner turn the project into a business ?
I had plans before selling to get to 10 events this year with more optimised earnings through higher cost events. This will require a lot of email marketing or links to the right universities and dating groups but can earned circa $15,000.
