The future of this project, the grand plan if you like, would be for there to be a site like this for every league and maybe non-league club in the UK even Europe. To achieve this we are going to need to get a different person to work with us in running each individual site.
So if you are a collector with a large surplus of your teams programmes or you would be interested in building up enough stock to run a site like this then please get in touch.
We will build the site for you and customise it in your teams colours, we will host it on our servers all you will have to do is to populate the database via our simple admin system and then despatch the orders when they come in.
Unlike eBay where you have to pay a listing fee whether or not the programme sells, then re-list it every 7-10 days, the only cost to you will be a small percentage of each completed sale and once you have listed a programme it will remain on your site until you choose to remove it.
The other bonus is that we will be linking all of the databases. What this means is that people running other sites will be able to sell your programmes for you.
For example, lets say you run the QPR Programmes site. A user visits the Fulham site and searches for Fulham vs QPR 1972. The Fulham guy doesn't have it in stock but you do. The user will still be able to buy the programme through the Fulham site, but it will be your programme that is sold. The Fulham guy will get a small commission as a "finders fee" but you will still get the bulk of the income. And of course it would work the other way round. The beauty of this is that it will appear that you have far more stock than maybe you actually do as you will be able to pull into your site stock from all of the other sellers.
This is great for the users of the sites too as they are far more likely to find the programme they are looking for.
If you are interested in finding out more please send an email to us detailing which site you would like to run and what kind of stock level you have. Please include a daytime telephone number if possible and we will contact you right away.
