Tabletop Gaming News, the industry’s leading source for board and miniature gaming news, is for sale by the site’s owners CMON Limited. Originally launched in 2006, CMON took over the site in 2012 to help grow its presence and deliver the latest news to the community, no matter the publisher or game.

CMON is now searching for a buyer to carry on Tabletop Gaming News’ legacy as they increase their focus on their core business as the CMON brand continues to grow. It is their hope to see the site continue to evolve and fulfill the hobby’s need for a dedicated news site.

Tabletop Gaming News is known within the industry and an excellent source of revenue. In 2016, advertising revenue totaled $31,000. Interested parties can contact [email protected] for additional information.

The site has a loyal following of readers on the site itself, Twitter and Facebook (content pushed via RSS and Zapier).

Ads on site are managed directly with advertisers in the industry, with 6 vertical banners on the sides that are more or less permanently occupied by large advertisers, one top banner available to smaller advertisers, as well as an inline advertisement for the front page.

Advertisers pay monthly or quarterly, mostly by credit card or Paypal but there are some larger ones that pay by check.

Advertising is managed via OpenX (open source adserver) which is installed on the site.

No Adsense, Amazon affiliate or other monetization is being used, so there is potential to increase revenue.

News usually comes to us through a submission form or email, and if you can use WordPress it only takes two hours a day to schedule news items to go out.

This would be an ideal site if you already have someone on your team administering and updating blogs, with built in revenue from some of the industry’s largest companies.

Included in sale (all to be transferred to you):

  • Domain
  • WordPress site
  • Disqus
  • Facebook page /tabletopgamingnews
  • Twitter account @TGN_News
  • Freshbooks account ($29.95 per month)

 

We are looking for 3x annual revenue or best offer.

    I will be interested to see what they ask for this. Revenue of $34,000.00 and an operating profit of $34,000.00 minus one year of Polar Bear food…oh and someone to clean the cage and pay for the servers. Hmmm.
