Splashpress Media has been around for less than a year to date, but our foundations date back to much longer than that. And we’ve been building up our network with quite a lot of launches, re-launches and acquisitions these past months. Many of these had involved transactions with exact dollar figures, whether as cost or income.
In this crazy world of online businesses, there is much talk about worth. How much is your blog or blog network worth? If someone made an offer to acquire your site, would you take it? For how much? How would you know it’s a fair valuation? Loren Feldman over at 1938 Media has a good analysis of worth vis-a-vis value, and this has made us think about our worth as a company. Still, there are different ways to come up with the dollar value you can attribute to a business, and we would like to know your thoughts about how much you think we are worth. For the best “worth evaluation” we will give a prize of US$ 1,000.
So here’s the deal. We’ll give $1,000 cash to the best “worth evaluation” of Splashpress Media’s network via a comment in reply to this post, a post on your own blog with a pingback or a private email via our contact form.
We already know its value to us….!
To explain a bit further- what we are looking for is the best “model” for “worth evaluation”, not the $$ figure itself, i.e: it really doesn’t matter whether you think we are “worth” a million bucks or zero, it is how you got to the numeric figure that matters. And to make it harder, we’re not going to provide any stats whatsoever or any revenue figures. You’ll just need to guess at the reality or the potential- up to you.
Again, we already know the company’s value to us, each as individual contributors to the whole (which makes value subjective!). But learning how much you think we are worth, and how you come up with that dollar figure make things more interesting.
Anyone interested has up to end of this week–Sunday, Nov. 11th, midday EST–to send in “worth valuations” either by comments, email or pingbacks/trackbacks, and we will announce the winner on the 12th.
