About the sale of parlor songs
For the last 16 years, I have dedicated most of my life to the development of the Parlor Songs website. During that time I have written over 130 articles, displayed well over 1300 - 1400 songs and sold CDs and sheet music reproductions of some of America's greatest historic music. Through the years, several million people around the world have enjoyed the music and articles I have posted on the site and the site has been acclaimed by academic sources with a great deal of the content being used by secondary and high schools as well as many colleges and universities. Many of the site's articles are top of the search engines thus providing the potential owner with ready made web presence and first page search engine visibility.
In 1996, though several sites featured midi music, Parlor Songs was the first website to display sheet music covers along with midi music of the songs and to include articles and commentary about the history of the songs and various aspects of America's Popular music. Through the years we have been the source of inspiration for many other sites who followed our lead in presenting historic music to the public. Few have exceeded our quality and fewer still have ever approached our output as far as the number of articles and pieces of music displayed. After all these years, I am ready to retire from website production and am faced with two options.
1. Delete the website entirely and have my work simply disappear to become only a memory.
2. Find someone willing to take up the site and build on what I have created who is willing to pay for the work done and can capitalize on the potential of the website.
I have never pursued advertising or other forms of revenues and this site is ripe for the development of advertising and subscription revenues and can be a tremendous revenue generator for someone with the skills and time to invest in it. The domain, parlorsongs.com is a valuable commodity in its own right but with the inclusion of the content, Parlor Songs becomes a possible lifetime revenue source for the right person.
The sale of the site includes all content.
Anyone interested should act soon as without any interest, the site will be deleted by the end of April, 2012.
Contact me for more information and to discuss terms of sale and pricing. The asking price for the site and domains is $20,000, however all reasonable offers will be considered.
With additional funds, I will also include the original copies of the sheet music published on the site and our very large library of rare and historic books used as resources for the site. Inclusion of those resources is an additional $3,000
