This listing is for an eCommerce business created in April 2000 in the entertainment niche. The custom-built site is a resource for people looking to download a certain type of file. It has shown consistent growth, particularly over the past few months. The business is well established at 20 years old and has built up a large database of active customers making it difficult for competitors to enter the market.
The main traffic sources are organic (60%), direct (20%), and referral (14%). The top three countries responsible for the traffic are the US (27%), UK (11%), and AU (6.6%).
The site earns its revenue from thousands of files, there is not one product accountable for the majority of sales. Due to this being a software-based business there is no need to handle inventory, which provides higher margins per sale.
There is a team of producers that are based worldwide, with some being paid on a per-job basis while others are paid from royalties. They are not aware of the sale but the Seller expects them to continue with the Buyer. The database and IT management have been previously outsourced to another company when outside of the Sellers capabilities. They have been working together for 15 years so they would be more than willing to help a Buyer.
The business has built up a small social media following with over a million total YouTube views and a few thousand Facebook followers. It has also built up an extensive email list of 50,000 that has not been monetized. This represents an opportunity for the Buyer.
*If the business is purchased outside Australia, the new owners must license through the relevant licensing agencies in their territory in order to sell the files. This will not be an issue as is standard practice. The Seller will assist in directing the new owners to contact the licensing agency as much as reasonably possible. If the business is purchased by an Australian company or individual(s), the Seller will transfer its existing license to the new owner. More information can be given to active unlockers of this listing.
