MenifeeOnline.com, a web portal that targeted residents of the Menifee Valley is apparently up for sale.
The website's current owner, Adrienne DeVita, listed the site for sale on her domain name blog, which you can read here...
The asking price for the website isn't mentioned, though she indicates that all reasonable offers will be considered. Here's a quote from her blog...
This is a local web portal located in Menifee, California. This portal targets one million local residents and the web site owner must contact all of the local businesses and sign them up for business directory advertising, which includes one full-page, 6 pictures, 1 thumbnail, and a coupon.
Web portals like MenifeeOnline.com have been springing up everywhere over the past couple of years, which happened to coincide with a nationwide trend towards "hyperlocal journalism". These websites offer similar information as Yahoo, except tailored to a very narrow audience, such as residents of Menifee Valley.
I don't have the specifics on why Adrienne decided to put MenifeeOnline up for sale, but I do know that online advertising at the local level is a difficult business to get into. Local advertising is still pretty much the domain of paper publications like newspapers, The Pennysaver, Menifee Mailer, etc.
Anyways, if you think you're up to the task of running a local web portal, maybe MenifeeOnline is the opportunity for you.
