Tubetorial Sold to SplashPress Media

What can I say? They made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. :)

SplashPress Media Ltd. has acquired the assets of Tubetorial, LLC, which includes the Tubetorial website and the Cutline Theme Community. SplashPress is the owner of over 30 websites, including The Blog Herald and the recently-acquired Performancing.

Tubetorial was a concept I came up with several months prior to Google’s acquisition of YouTube, and the timing couldn’t have been better. I partnered with Chris Pearson to launch and develop the site last September, and we were just about to segue into phase 2 of our business plan after an initial 6 months of successful content development and promotion. However, we started receiving inquiries from several groups about acquisition. SplashPress quickly stepped to the head of the pack in terms of credibility and vision for the concepts we had created.

SplashPress plans to integrate Tubetorial and Cutline with Performancing, which shows they clearly understand the importance of community-building alongside solid content. Chris and I offer our best wishes to the SplashPress team, and expect to see great things going forward.

    Talk about a quick flip! A hefty congratulations goes out to your team for such an excellent, forward-thinking product which was just begging to be acquired…it was only a matter of time.

    Hey David,

    I’m betting the theme doesn’t get the same attention it once got and dies a horrible, withering death.

    Once a website is sold the new owners always make a mess out of it.

    Don’t they ?

    Congrats to you guys. You did a splendid job with Tubetorial. And I think if David is on it, he’ll care for it just as much as you did.
