Well this is a very strange post to be writing this morning! Yes, you read the title correctly – I’m moving on and Aspirational Bride will soon be up for sale!
I launched this website on May Day, 1st May 2012 and what a wonderful three years it has been since the launch! I’ve met some wonderful people, showcased the best of UK based wedding businesses, organised styled shoots and visited some wonderful wedding venues!
I’ve made new friends and chatted about almost every aspect of planning a wedding with countless brides to be! It has all been enormous fun and I’ve truly enjoyed every minute! I’m not leaving the world of weddings entirely, and neither am I giving up my freelance writing and website building plans, I’m just ready for new ventures!
It has been quite hard to determine a selling price – I’ve had to consider the industry Aspirational Bride operates in (a flourishing one worth approx. £10 billion pounds in the UK alone), how much labour and technical skill is required to manage the site (very little, and I’ll be around to oversee a staged transfer if my buyer prefers this), the costs (hosting, marketing etc), whether the business is growing and how fast, and the future potential…
It is the future potential aspect which has me really excited, and is the part of the reason I have decided to sell…. I want the new owner(s) to share the passion I had when I first started, and take Aspirational Bride to new heights it is now ready for! So much of the foundation work is in place with great site statistics, a solid revenue, an industry presence across all social media outlets and wonderful industry links. The name itself is also a huge pull.
I don’t want my site to go to just anybody, I am looking for someone who will look after it and keep the dream alive, and continue to build on the great community I have built. I’m not rushing this sale, but will know when the right person comes along. In the meantime Aspirational Bride will continue as it’s always done, with great features which inform and inspire brides around the world!
If you are interested in purchasing the website, please do drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to discuss this further. Please do tell me as much as you can about yourself and your ideas too!
