The Rich Jerk Is For Sale

It looks like the Rich Jerk is going on the blocks. Shoemoney just made a post that Kelly Felix (the Rich Jerk) is selling the Rich Jerk operation.

The business is listed for sale at BizQuest.com with an asking price of $8 million. No detail was given on what kind of sales the Jerk brings in.

This is a multi-million dollar operation. Full financial details will be given to qualified potential buyers.

Also included is our registered trademark for the phrase “Rich Jerk”. In addition, we have many branded promotional items, including clothing. Our office equipment, including furniture, computers, etc., can be included as well.

I guess we won’t be seeing any “You’re a loser!” Rich Jerk Google ads on this blog anymore. That’s too bad. I always got a kick out of them.

  1. Interesting.

    They would not approve me for the affiliate program. Oh well. I only wanted to review it anyway.

    What a “Jerk” 👿

    1. Kumiko says:

      More hilarious than interesting!

      “Hey I’ve got a company that sells a product that helps people get rich but I’m actually broke so I’m selling it and you can buy it and then sell the same product to people but you won’t get rich either and now everybody knows that they won’t too.”

      Good luck trying to sell that ebook now!

      I suppose this is a good time to announce that I’m going to be selling my own ebook “The Rich Bitch” for $499.99.

      1. Matt Huggins says:

        Woah, can guys buy it too? 😀

        1. Ulchie says:

          Of course… how do you think she plans on becoming the rich bitch? :mrgreen:

        2. Kumiko says:

          Of course guys can buy it! Do you want to purchase a copy?

          1. Mubin says:

            I’ll take a review copy if your offering!

        3. do you take everything seriously?

      2. good take, kumiko

    2. haha what a surprise…wasnt he talking about his own jet and maxim models and blah blah…haha man too bad RJ is out…but guys like that know so much abotu internet marketing i am sure it wont be long before he is back…

    3. Nomar says:

      Yeah, I hate those emails to.. never read them though

  2. Marc says:

    Web 2.0 burst so soon? Funny that it would happen by blowing VC on ineffective advertising… Who could possibly have seen that coming?

    1. Joshua says:

      I can’t see how you’d consider him part of web 2.0!! 😯

      1. Kumiko says:

        He’s definitely 1.0 and maybe even 0.5!

        1. Matt Huggins says:

          Hahaha, this made me lol. 🙂

      2. James says:

        Cobweb 2.0 ?

    2. obviously you have no idea what web 2.0 is

      and do not use that term on rich jerk

      it’s simply offensive

      1. Alex says:

        Yeah, Rich Jerk is a dinosaur :mrgreen:

      2. Marc says:

        I’ve never been to his site. I just assumed he got his round of funding since due to web 2.0 coolness. Clearly not, my apologies.

  3. Peter Koning says:

    I don’t believe it. He just launched “Xray” which was one of those google ppc tracking tools for affiliates. Most likely he’s moving up the food chain.

    1. i think they just want to do it to attract some media attention

  4. Chee Kui says:

    Is anyone gonna buy this? I wonder… I don’t think I wanna be the next Rich Jerk.

    1. why would you blew your 8 million on a failed project

      1. ya tru…well its not a failed project…its just that RJ needs money for his debt

    2. buy it?

      are you nuts?

  5. Wahlau.NET says:

    haha..he actually ask for 8million..after the sale he will be one rich jerk

    the new owner will be poorer by 8million

    1. Kumiko says:

      I’m surprised it’s not advertised for sale as:

      “You suck! Buy buy business!”

    2. hmmm, that’s questionable

      with the right management, i think the rich jerk can be a very successful project

      1. Mubin says:

        You just said it was a failed project?

    3. Mubin says:

      Probaly wont be rich… He has to pay back all his investors for the money he used to buy advertismenets on howard stern. What a dumb idea.

  6. Well, if a business behaves very strange from the beginning and “jerky”, the end is predicted… 😎

  7. Louiss says:

    I wish to sell my blog for 8 million too. Do you think people will believe Kelly? If yes I’m sure that fellow is a rich dummy man. 😀

    1. it might well be a publicity stunt

  8. Phishie Diaz says:

    Hmm… I’m not so sure about him going bankrupt. His business ethics are a bit shifty. His eBook actually helped me out a bit. It really spelled out how to get started. hehe Btw John, you’re a rich jerk for the pay2dofollow thing.

    1. Wahlau.NET says:

      wow..someone actually buys…

      john is definately rich with all the scheme his is pulling out of his sleeve

      1. Phishie Diaz says:

        Yeh… I bought it a long time ago. I was still getting hassled by all the affiliate IM stuff. Now I will never buy anything ever again.

  9. Going bankrupt could be stretching it a bit, but I can believe he’s paying for his questionable advertising tactics. 8 million for an ex-rich jerk site…I don’t know if anyone would be interested to pay that much for it.

    1. unless the buyer is actually a rich jerk

  10. hejustlaughs says:

    Could be another one of his tactics to draw attention… hmmmm

    1. could well be, maybe they just want to promote either bizquest or the rich jerk website

  11. That’s going to be a heck of a lot of T-shirts for $8 million! Is the brand really worth that much? I can’t see how the other crap they’re including can be! That’s the point behind these new companies: they don’t have much in fixed assets, except chairs and desks.
    $8,000,000. I’ll offer $8,000!

    Kenneth

    1. There is another way to see it: advertising on Howard Stern cost a lot of $$$, perhaps that purpose was so the sale of RichJerk would be easier! It could be a gambit for selling the company, not selling the products! Otherwise why would you pay so much for such space!

    2. 8000, i think it worthes more than that

      at least most of us here have heard of the rich jerk website

      at least their google ads were creative

    1. John Chow says:

      Ummm, no. Not sure where you got that listing but this is the listing we’re talking about. http://california.bizquest.com/836910.html

    2. Mubin says:

      Did you get that info from the ask a seller part? If not where did you get it from?

  13. Tania says:

    Thank you, John!
    You are realiizing we are helping him tremendously with sale of the biz just blogging about it? Do we get any kickbacks for that?

    1. John Chow says:

      It would be nice if I got a cut of the sale. But no, the jerk gives me nothing!

      1. Tania says:

        At least I have to give credit to the guy that he has stayed pretty much anonymous so he is not irreplacable now. But I personally do not need to worry about that now with my silly blog. It is strange with the blogs though – it’s so much based on your personality that it is difficult to see an exit strategy! If you hire a mod – then wouldn’t that be cheating?

        1. John Chow says:

          I have no exit strategy because I never intend to exit. 😈

  14. Matt Huggins says:

    This is pretty funny. I’m glad I didn’t pay for his ebook! 😉

  15. Ulchie says:

    I don’t buy the fact that he is going bankrupt. I can see him wanting to sell it cause its getting old or because “multiple owner’s are looking to work on other projects, seperately.”

    If he was going bankrupt all he would have to do is wait another month or two and more money flows in. I think his banks/creditors would rather wait to get ALL their money if he really was going bankrupt.

    1. James says:

      Errr…Web advertiser buys ads to sell Internet marketing on Howard Stern.
      How could he possibly go bankrupt with that business model?

  16. SEO says:

    Nobody is going to want this since the business is tied to a likeness. Even if he’s ‘anonymous’ it doesn’t matter, people will find out it’s not the original guy. It’s no longer possible for it to be genuine.

  17. I’m not sure about the bankruptcy thing either.
    He’s just selling the business as it’s dieing out. Not many potential customers left.
    Sure the TV ads were expensive and pointless, but this doesn’t mean he’s bankrupt.
    He’s probably doing some other stuff that is more longterm or maybe he’s going back to his acting career? 😀

    1. acting?
      was he an acter or somthing?

  18. E-books are so overated…lol

  19. Andrew says:

    Hehe, it would be funny if he’s really bankrupt.
    I must admit his advertisements are pretty good though.

  20. have you been to the site … if you look at the video on the home page … it says checks that were found in the trunk and were never cashed oh well … the funny thing is those checks were all photo copies … they were in black and white … the google checks have a Green Stripe at the top not a black stripe … LOL ha ha ha

    Thats too funny and his price of the system dropped from $197 to $9.99 … LOL

    WOW

    He must really be hurting!

  21. James says:

    Just think, if you have $8,000,000 to buy it, you can now be not only rich, but a jerk.
    Or, you could be a poor jerk.
    I dunno.

  22. I always thought the Rich Jerk ads were too racy. I guess it was a neat idea to offend people into buying your product.

    Rich Jerk Wrote Me This:

    Dear Loser,

    Here we go again. Any time I do anything “discreetly”, my band
    of religious followers sniffs it out and displays it publicly,
    causing a huge uproar in the forums, etc.

    Here’s the deal:

    My business manager recently asked to list my entire business
    for sale. So I let him. Why?

    1. It’s always nice to know what people think your biz is
    worth in the real world. (Most webmasters value their
    biz in fantasy dollars)

    2. It’s an easy way to make contacts and establish rapport with
    “players” in the industry. People who have money and
    can make things happen. These are the people I want on
    my rolodex.

    3. It’s fun to watch all of the wannabes scurry around
    and speculate based on nothing. Is he? Isn’t he? Why?
    Oh my God. Mommy!

    4. Obvious free traffic. (shame shame shame)

    5. I can do whatever the fu*k I want.

    ——————————————–

    So anyway, apparently my biz manager wrote up an Ebay ad
    and never finished it. He scheduled it to list 30 days later, giving
    him time to finish it. He forgot. Oops. So once it listed, we pulled
    it immediately. That’s when the firestorm started.

    But guess what? I ain’t going nowhere. Even if by some remote
    chance a buyer comes along who wants to give me millions & millions
    for my biz, I’m staying on board because this ship would SINK
    without me. Just look at all of the copycats. They FAIL because
    they TRY to be me. It doesn’t work.

    I have BIG plans for this company. And I may even begin working
    one whole day per week on it now, instead of just a half day. All
    I need to do is cut loose one of my ladies, and Tanya has been
    annoying the sh*t out of me lately. So the timing is perfect.

    ****BIG NEWS****

    The Rich Jerk Playboy Mansion Party date has been locked down.
    It’s a Friday in July. I’ll tell you which one later. I’m handing over a
    quarter million dollars for this party. $250k for one night. That’s
    probably more than your house isn’t it? That’s a shame.

    You won’t believe what’s going to happen at this thing. All I
    can say is it’s gonna be LEGENDARY. It’s the kind of thing an old
    guy can tell his grandkids about on his deathbed, so he can croak
    with a smile.

    And a few of you smart fu*ks are already guaranteed a precious
    ticket to my party. Those who bought a few products from me in
    the past where I offered the party as a bonus. You know who you
    are. And if you are still with the programs, you’re in.

    As for the rest of you, you’re fu*ked. Well, maybe not. I do still have
    room for a few people at the party. So I think I’m just gonna sell the
    remaining tickets on a first come first serve basis. I’ll tell you the cost
    in an email next week, and I’ll include a link. They’ll probably sell out
    within a few hours.

    By the way, rumor has it that there will be dozens of centerfolds
    present at the party, lots of body painted chicks, a world famous DJ,
    a HUGE world famous band, multiple open bars, tons of celebrities, press,
    red carpet, and more. And of course Hef & the ladies.

    Also, a few of the most influential marketers in the world
    will be attending. For example, John Reese just confirmed attendance
    because we’re donating some of the ticket proceeds to a good charity.

    Did I mention that after 10pm clothing is optional?

    Anyway, that should be enough to wet your whistles, you fu*kin perverts.

    Later Losers,

    RJ
