pipebytes.com for sale

The first pipebytes.com anniversary is approaching and we have been struggling with questions about the site future. We certainly see it being a very useful tool, used by many people. We have invented and patented a unique file transfer technology. We have built a reliable and scalable service. We have developed and tested a business model which shows how this service could earn a substantial revenues. So, why are we selling it? It turns out we are not very good in promoting and marketing the site. All of us come from engineering background and selling is not our strongest skill.

We were trying to raise money and build a team which will help us to grow the site. This did not work either. We have experience working with VCs and some of us have raised money before. The problem is that pipebytes falls into this category where investment required is too big for angels (it is above $100K) and yet too small for institutional VCs (they are not interested investing into company with potential valuation of $10M, they want to invest into next Google). [these numbers are for US, if you reside in other country, they situation may be more favorable]

Why somebody would buy it? We think that pipebytes could be a unique business opportunity for a savvy tech entrepreneur with good marketing skills. You do not need to concern yourself with technology - the product is already built. You do not need to question yourself if people would use it - we have proven they would! We even proven they would gladly play the reasonable price for service like this. All you need to do is bring more exposure, let your revenue grow. At some point if you want to add more features - we already thought of it and have a list of various feature ideas already prepared for you.

So, if you are interested in buying pipebytes, please take a look at the sale summary, and contact us with your offer.

New Design

Yesterday we have updated pipebytes.com site with new design. We tried to make it easier to use and more pleasing to an eye. You might need to hit refresh button in your browser the first time you visit it after design change, to make sure your browser cache is updated.

After long thought we have to let our stick figure (affectionately internally called Pedro) go from the home page. Good-bye Pedro!

Let us know how you like the new design and how we can improve it in any way!

Pipebytes meets IM (via Meebo)

One of the reasons we created Pipebytes, was a constant frustration with Instant Messengers file transfer functionality. Between different versions of IM clients, firewalls, operating systems, it was was regularly failing to work as expected.

Today we introduce first integration of Pipebytes with IM clients. Now users of Meebo (which is a fantastic web-based IM client) can use PipeBytes to exchange files of any size while chatting. All you need to do is to click on applications icon in Meebo chat window (one with a yellow rocket) and select "Send Files" from the list.
