    As the title says, are tagged accounts worth money? I currently have a tagged account with 20,000 friends

    Im just wondering if its actually worth anything?

    Thanks

    The answer to that question depends upon who you are going to sell it to. Generally speaking...no the account itself is not worth any money unless you are lucky enough to find a buyer that is willing to pay for it. Your best bet would be to get creative and monetize it yourself. In the process you could try setting a price tag of what you think your time spent on building it was worth....

    Let's stop to think about that for a second.. How long did it take you to get that many friends..

    let us say it only took you a week. (unlikely..probably took more time than that)..

    If it took you a week then you wouldn't want to sell it for $20,$50 or even $100 bux. No one I know works for that little of a weekly wage. To make any worthwhile money, you need to sell it for AT LEAST $300 bucks. If it took you a month (more likely) .. then you wouldn't want to sell it for less than $1000 (or would you?)..

    No one I know or have heard of will pay these kind of prices. Trying to make money selling accounts of any kind is futiel unless you have a software that can make several accounts like that everyday, in which case you could MAYBE make about $20-$30 a piece of you could find the clientel....

    The probelm is people wnated targeted traffic.. half of your firends could be other marketers/spammers.. and the other half might never sign on making them useless... this is why people build their own targeted friend collecitons based on what they are trying to sell....

    Ultimately the burden of monetization is on you. Try doing some marketing of your own and in the meantime look for a dummy that will give you $200-$1000 bux for it. Thats is if you think your time was worht that much.

    Good Luck

    Superb reply many thanks.

    Ive only recently got myself together with the ''making money lingo'' and earning a steady amount of it.

    Was just wondering if it was worth more than I thought.

    That reply has cleared things up

    Thanks

    How much money do you make from having those 20K friends. If you don't or can't make any money from the account, you'll only be trying to sucker somebody. If however you can make money from the account, gather some proof and hit a marketplace. I guarantee that you'll sell it if it's priced properly.
