Spiceio is an online community that brings together lovers of delicious food and passionate cooks from all around the world. In other words, Spiceio is a social network for food bloggers.
We used WordPress, BuddyPress plugin and lots of custom functions like Gamification to create this website. The site was finished in just one month.
We acquired 50 core members in the first month mostly from Twitter and Pinterest, and 20% of them were daily active users.
Our revenue model was Adsense. However, Spiceio had a really low CTR because the layout of the website didn’t blend with ads.
We decided to sell it, and after just 2 months we sold the website on Flippa and made some good money.
