|FunnyTivoFace is my first biz up for grabs. Unlike some of my upcoming posts, this site is already up, running and packed with content. The last posts were in October of '08 during the Presidential Debates. They got some pretty good traffic, but I didn't have the time, energy or passion to keep it going. If you do, let me know.|
Ever paused your TV and instantly burst out into laughter over the ridiculous face you caught someone making? FunnyTivoFace.com captures these surprise moments and posts them for the world to see. FunnyTivoFace(FTF) capitalizes off a model proven by the People Magazines and Perez Hiltons of the world; people love to see celebrities look stupid.
With television lineups constantly changing and new celebrity starlets popping up every month, there is an endless amount of content for this site to live and thrive on forever. The content for the posts is really easy to generate. 1) Download shows on your computer and take screenshots (that's what I did, gets the best quality) or snap a picture of your TV. 2) Post the picture with a simple description. The site automatically inserts the photo into a TV and generates the ads. There is a huge opportunity to crowdsource the content generation if you can get people on board.
The best part about this model is the enormous potential fan base! Shows like American Idol have over 30 million viewers all tuning in waiting to see a contestant fall on their face or do something stupid. By networking through other blogs and marketing in fan forums I can't imagine this site not being successful. Fans can subscribe via rss, email or add to iGoogle.
Making $$ off impressions and banner clicks is tough business but, but there is also an opportunity for massive distribution. FTF could potentially be the next Getty Images of celebrity stupidness. Blogs and media companies are always looking for images such as these to post with their articles.
So I am looking for someone to take over FTF and build it out right. This person should not only have experience in blogging, but media connections couldn't hurt. Prove to me that you have what it takes, and we will work something out.
