Popular Women Motorcyclists Site Women Riders Now For Sale

Leading women motorcyclists website Women Riders Now (WRN) is up for sale. The site’s founder and editor, Genevieve Schmitt, made the announcement yesterday on her Facebook page.

WRN is one of the first sites to offer motorcycle and gear reviews exclusively from a woman’s perspective. As the number of women riders grew, so did Women Riders Now. The site has become a reputable source by maintaining a high level of professionalism in articles that are informative and insightful. The new owners will undoubtedly be held to those same levels by the court of public opinion. Seeing how there’s more women motorcyclists on the road than ever before, the site has great investment potential.

Here’s Genevieve’s Facebook post and the newsletter she posted on WRN explaining more about the decision to sell her website.

I’m Selling WRN. Are you the next owner?

This might be an unconventional way to go about accomplishing this, but nothing about selling, buying, or the way we share and consume information is conventional anymore. I believe casting a wider net to help me sell Women Riders Now is the best way to connect me to the future owner.

Please read.

Hello my dear friend!

Many of you have shared your hopes and dreams for your future with me over the years as motorcyclists. Now it’s my turn to share with you in a similar way.

I am writing because I believe you, the enthusiastic reader and supporter of WomenRidersNow.com—the website I created more than a decade ago—should be kept abreast of my intentions to sell the business and pass it on to the next owner. And I believe reaching out to you is one way I will navigate to that next owner.

After much prayer, I believe casting a wider net by connecting with you and all the readers of the site will help me to network to the next owner of WomenRidersNow.com. It could be you, or someone you know, or someone you know who knows someone.

Now is an incredible time for women and motorcycling. No other time in history has the industry experienced this kind of momentum and interest in women motorcycle riders. In the last two years, WomenRidersNow.com has experienced record traffic numbers with ad revenues to match. Much like Oprah and Jerry Seinfeld who both ceased production of their respective shows when their programs were at the top of the ratings, I am ready to pass on this incredible website, the brand, and all its resources to someone who wants to own one of the most exciting media businesses in motorcycling—and continue the tradition I’ve started of delivering motorcycling news, reviews, information, and advice from a female point of view.

Why am I selling? Because after 30 years working in the media industry, the last 20 years in motorcycling media, I’m ready to start the next chapter of my life.

Will WRN continue until I find a buyer? Yes, of course! It’s business as usual. And my plan is to help the next owner transition to maintaining the same high standards and quality that has made the site and the business successful.

When I shared my intention to sell with my current advertisers last week, one of them summed up his thoughts this way: “Advertising on WRN for the past several years has really assisted us in growing this market segment for our business. Over the last 10 years women riders have been the fastest growing segment of ownership and unfortunately there aren’t many media outlets in this space.”

His thoughts are precisely why it’s of utmost importance to me to find the right buyer to continue serving the motorcycle riders and businesses in the way that I’ve done all these years.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my request and/or share it with someone who might be interested.

Serious inquiries can email me for more information at [email protected].

Blessings to you!
