    there was a chick pitching a website, I was like wtf how the hell did she get the investment..... I dunno.. what you guys think?

    she said she was getting 200 uniques a day, but didnt even say the source... it could have been all ppc.

    wtf a £60k for 30% with 2 dragons... whatttt, I have a website that gets 1600 uniques with pure seo, anyone want to invest £60,000 into it???

    I was completely amazed. I was laughing my arse off on the couch with my GF and then they started fighting over investing in it ?!? I was like wtf seriously. They gave her 60 grand for 25% of an affiliate site with less than 30k visits a month. Seriously couldn't believe it. I may well go on next year.

    She did a shit pitch and seemed like a complete bimbo, she also didn't even know the code the website was programmed in. Then she boasted 200 unique visitors per day which seemed absolutely shite.

    But the real clincher and what really got the Dragon's tails wagging, was the five figure turnover with only 6% commission per sale, which is pretty good going and rather impressive.

    She also got the .COM of her domain name after some months of waiting when it wasn't available for £25, the jammy tart!

    I'm always surprised when the Dragons take interest in internet investments, when they could simply steal the idea and replicate it themselves.

    WTF Dropshipping at 6% with 25 suppliers to manage and no idea how her back shop works or how robust?

    But worse thing was ANYONE can have similar site up with good seo knowledge and kick there butts before they have even started.

    So who is up for this?

    USA / Aussie / Canada versions coming soon????????

    I actually thought it was a good idea. But your right she didn't know anything about her site and also her uniques were shit!

    Think the income was exciting them - but if that turns out to be incorrect it will fall through.

    I liked the arm chair man and watching cruela De'ville ripping him. To peices:)
