Not Disruptive Enough: Audioo Up For Sale

Audioo launched
(or rather, relaunched) as a sort of “Blippy for
voicemail”
at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in New
York earlier this year. Basically,the idea was for the site to grow
into a massive database of transcribed
voicemails
, amusing prank calls, 911 calls and other voice
recordings.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t much of a disruptive business
idea, and the site simply failed to attract a sufficient number of
contributors and interested visitors to stand on its own two
feet.

Today, AudioMicro
(Audioo’s parent company) is putting the site up for
auction.

No need for Audioo to be deadpooled though, says AudioMicro CEO
Ryan Born
– he claims it only costs about $500 per month to operate and
should draw enough interest to end up in the hands of a new owner
that can grow the site.

Born and co will continue to focus on stock music and sound
effects site AudioMicro.com, which is said to be growing at a fast
clip.

You can find the listings on
Flippa
and
eBay
if you’re interested in the Audioo auction
details.
