    i know a friend that built a software seo tool/site, he claims he sold it for $1000 bucks, which raise questions? im like "wtf/bullshit"?, the site is pretty basic seo stuff, nothing out of this world.

    So the question is, lets say i build a superior site with waaaay more features like blog posting, youtube posting, link wheel seo, etc, could i sell the site in $10000 bucks?, thats the amount of money i need right now to put my life back into "moving north/south/east/west" mode instead of "moving hell/married with children" mode.

    Im really struggling for money, but im quite confident that i can find the people(programmers) to make this happen.

    Share your opinions. ANY OPINION will be appreciated.

    You need to be more specific, prices these days are not what they used to be. The top SEO softwares are below (along with prices off the top of my head)

    Xrumer - $600 + $10/mo
    SB - $97
    SENukeX - $147/mo

    And that is for what most people consider the "best" seo tools. I don't remember the last time i saw any seo related thing go for over $1000

    more specific. OK, also he(my friend) wasn't providing a SEO service, he sold the whole thing(including the source code) along with a "do wtf you want with it" license... so he basically built a software tool for another person and that person is going to use it provide the SEO service and charge for it.

    From what I have observed, most pricing models seem to be geared towards recurring income. Not one time fees. 10ks - one-time fee seems a bit high.

    Dude, if you had the skills to make that program you can make money faaaaaast and easy (because it's automated) selling services for cheaper than the competition. It's no cost to you other than proxies which are around 1-2$ a proxy. But you take one $1 proxy investment and use it for a service that you charge $50-$100 for and you're golden.
