This listing is for a SaaS business created in September 2013 in the privacy niche. The custom built site features a subscription service to use a virtual private network (VPN) with servers in 20 countries. The business has over 10K active subscribers on the lifetime plan, an email list over 15k, and an Instagram following of over 17K.
The majority of the traffic comes from Google, with the remaining traffic coming from discount plans using an affiliate network, from forums, and from promotions on social media. Since owning the business the Seller has enjoyed managing two contractors. One takes care of customer support and the other is a backend developer who manages all the server provider relationships. They both look forward to continuing with the Buyer.
The Seller recently surveyed over 14,000 users, and 80% of the respondents were happy with the product and the experience, with a new desktop client being the #1 request. This is an opportunity for the Buyer to pursue. The #1 change the Seller would immediately implement is updating the system to do recurring payments. Though customers do not experience any difference, currently the business manually processes payments each month.
*When users use the VPN for activity that violates the terms of service the business gets complaints from the server providers. From there the Seller bans the users from the VPN and the servers.
*August 2018 saw an increase in contractor payments for backend fixes to payments and design. This neutralized the increased revenue for the month.
*We’ve decided to use a 7-month average of net profit for the valuation because we felt that a 12-month average did not accurately represent the current state of the business.
This listing is for an Amazon Associates business created in April 2015 in the parenting niche. The site offers parenting tips and product reviews for kids of all ages (newborn on up). There are currently about 100 pages on the site. The seller wrote 75% of the content themselves, but they have outsourced in the past, so this is an option for the new owner. The site itself is also very branded, targeting a certain subsection of its niche to provide over the top valuable content versus traditional affiliate niche sites in the space.
Included in the sale of this business are social media accounts for Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. The Twitter account has the largest following with over 4,500 followers. The seller recently started focusing on growing the Pinterest audience for the account and it is currently sitting at about 800 followers. They haven't promoted affiliate links on Pinterest as of yet. The Facebook account has 200 followers.
There are currently no email list subscribers, so building this is a great opportunity for a new buyer to use for marketing, especially in this niche. Right now the seller is planning to use this email list to curate a weekly newsletter to subscribers to bring them back to profitable pieces of content that the site has created.
Please note that there was a negative SEO attack on one particular page in early 2017. The seller submitted a “Disavow” file to Google and regularly updates it. They have also tracked 95+ "buyer-intent" keywords for the site, and they haven't been affected by the attack.
This listing is for an Amazon FBA and eCommerce business created in October 2014 in the kitchenware niche. The business features 439 SKUs selling a specialized kitchen product on Amazon as well as on Shopify and Etsy. The trademarked business has seen 50% year-over-year growth, has a large social media following, and thanks to a freelance team requires minimal work from the Seller.
The business has active storefronts on Shopify and Etsy. It sells mainly in the US and makes rare sales in Canada and the UK on Amazon. Japan accounts for other international sales on its Shopify storefront. The business does not hold or handle any inventory. Amazon inventory is stored and fulfilled by Amazon. For the Etsy and Shopify storefronts, inventory is manufactured and drop-shipped by a partner supplier.
Social media is an important part of driving traffic to the business as well as validating new product offers. The business has a strong social media following on three different channels; Instagram (106K followers); Facebook (4K followers); and Pinterest (6.3K followers). Influencer marketing has helped to grow the following for the business. An email list of 8.7K exists but is currently being underutilized.
Content has not been added to the domain since 2016. At that time 100+ blog articles were created by industry influencers to drive traffic to the site.
Thanks to a team of freelancers, the owners of the business have not been directly involved in maintaining it. Most of the tasks listed in the work and skills required section has been completed by freelancers. The freelance team is internationally dispersed in the Philippines and South Africa. They are aware the business is selling and are willing to continue on with the Buyer.
Due to the business having access to proprietary manufacturing equipment for the specialization of products, the business has an excellent opportunity to scale.
*The Seller Central account is not included in the sale. This would be considered an asset and SKU ownership transfer on the Amazon side of the business.
This online accessory retailer was created by the seller to fill the need for a stylish and practical accessory that the owner couldn’t find anywhere else. The seller spent a year designing the products, sourcing materials, creating a relationship with the Chinese manufacturer, and developing the website and social media postings.
The company has almost 23,000 organic/authentic followers on Instagram and 2,000 on Facebook. Their products were featured on a prominent fashion/lifestyle web site as one of the top 10 accessories of its kind. They recently spent $ 3,000 to set up an account on Amazon and are starting to get orders.
This is a great home-based business for someone with E-Commerce marketing experience. The seller doesn’t have the level of marketing expertise or time to grow the business to its full potential. Asking price includes $80K in inventory as well as intellectual property valued at $25K.
This listing is for a display advertising business created in October 2016 in the information niche. The site is custom coded in Ruby on Rails and is one of the largest directories in its niche and in the US. Due to the nature of this business model, minimal effort is required from the Seller at this time.
This business generates 100% of its revenue from AdSense display ads. The primary sources of traffic to the site stem from organic search (84%) referral (12%) and direct (4%) channels. The primary country in terms of generating traffic to the business is the United States.
The Seller has not updated the site with much content since purchasing the site from our marketplace back in July 2018. The site's maintenance is as simple as monitoring the site for any errors and regularly updating the security certificates as needed. As the Seller has not done any SEO on the site recently, this offers growth potential the Buyer could focus on.
Based on the site being custom-built using Ruby on Rails, the seller is willing to help a buyer deploy the site if needed. No email list or social media profiles have been created offering plenty of growth opportunities for a Buyer to consider. More information will be provided to active Buyers.
* You must currently have an approved Adsense account before purchasing this business to assure a successful migration of the business.
