Description

    Rides.com  (domain plus social media asset)

    This is a unique opportunity to own a category domain name with a massive social media following.  Rides.com, the domain name, has great value as a branding asset.  Rides.com offers instant prestige in the automotive space, and it is simply unforgettable.  Pair that with a Facebook account with over 211,000 followers, and you have a great opportunity to make an immediate impact with car collectors.  In addition, a developed website is included, which can be used as a template for a marketplace, a blog, and a discussion forum.

    Rides.com is perfect for the individual or group that values interaction with a large user base of car enthusiasts.  The social media numbers are impressive, and automotive enthusiasts are eager to share and discuss the topics on the Facebook page.  Assets with a social presence this impressive do not come up for sale often.  The biggest challenge for most businesses is building an audience, yet Rides.com gives you this captive audience from your first day of ownership.  All of the elements are in place for success.  Rides.com just needs an owner with a grand vision.  The right owner could leverage this audience and partner with dealers, collectors and service providers to create an outstanding business.

    As a comparable sale, Ride.com (domain name only) sold recently for $325,000.  This was a domain only sale with no website or social media following. 

    Rides.com has been registered for nearly 20 years, with an original registration in 1995.



    Estimate: $300,000 - up.
