I think Ron runs getbig mainly because he enjoys his role as a bodybuilding journalist and I can see the appeal in that but I think getbig can be monetized pretty significantly.  I talked about this with Ron at the 2007 Arnold and he seemed to understand this but I honestly don't think he has an interest in doing that in lieu of his role behind the scenes as mentioned above.

Based on the Alexa rankings, getbig is slightly more popular than Muscular Development:

http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/getbig.com#trafficstats
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/musculardevelopment.com#trafficstats

I just counted the ads in the latest Muscular Development magazine and there are almost 200 pages of ads.  As far as I know, the ads run for around $5,000 per page but you can get them cheaper and I imagine if you buy them in bulk you would get a discount.  The magazine plugs the website a lot and even then the website is not as popular as getbig.

Thoughts?

I just find it intriguing that Ron has no interest in monetizing it.  I think he just enjoys the experience of being a behind the scenes journalist.  It's also pretty impressive to me that getbig gets more traffic than MD considering MD is one of the biggest magazines in the industry.  And not to engage in conspiracy theorizing, but I wonder if any of the big industry players offered to buy getbig.

I haven't thought about it much, but yes I would say I have a chance.  The reason why I think that is because the industry is very niche and small and it's not really hard to network with everyone if the circle is so small.  The hair and nose can be fixed.  Grin  In reality I should have dealt with my nose when it was broken in 2003, if not for aesthetics, at least to help my breathing.

After running my website for so many years now I just think it's kind of silly to ignore it.  I may as well keep my website and add more to it despite my interest in bodybuilding waning through the years.  I'm also interested in giving bodybuilding one more shot because to be honest, I do enjoy being more muscular and I have been very thin lately since I haven't been focusing on bodybuilding much.  I don't think being 180-190 would be that unhealthy.  As bent as the industry may be, I think following bodybuilding has added a lot of quality in my life and I want to help the people who have helped me which is why I offer free banners on my forum for anyone interested.

So what does he do for money?

Alex23 said he is a company rep working in distribution or something along those lines.  I think Ron deserves credit for giving us getbig free from ads even though he could probably make six figures a year off it if he really wanted to.

asking the actual value of getbig is a little arbitrary.. as it is worth whatever a particular individual or entity may be willing to pay for it.  a better gauge of value is to analyze the potential profit that can be generated on a monthly or annual basis with the incorporation of a few revenue generating ideas.  

in that sense, I think getbig without even doing much could easily bring in low 6 figures a year.  monetized in a very efficient manner, I think that number could potentially reach the 7 figure mark on an annual basis if handled correctly.  not a guarantee, but it certainly is possible if it were to be treated as a legitimate business.  internet advertising is actually my profession and has been for over 10 years, so while I may be qualified to talk about the subject, those numbers are just a first glance estimate of the possibilities.  getbig is essentially an untapped cash cow.

Ron's getbig.com has a conservative estimate worth of $6.9 billion
