5 Year Old Personal Finance Blog w/Diversified Earnings and Growing Trends
Launched in February 2018, this personal finance blog covers various topics related to saving money, frugal living, managing money, budgeting, and other topics. Over the last couple of years, the seller has focused much of the new content on making money through side hustles and investing.
The site is monetized through a combination of display ads (through Mediavine) and affiliate partnerships. In the financial content category, the revenue is much more diversified than in many other categories. For this site, about 40% of revenue comes from display ads, and the other 60% comes from a combination of several different affiliate partnerships. These include four investment platforms, several side hustle apps, and even a few courses.
The seller has written a good portion of the content but has also been working with a freelance writer for several years. The seller works about 15-20 hours per week on the site.
There are several growth opportunities to take this business to the next level. First, increased content production has been a proven winner. The seller noticed that one of his competitors drastically increased content production over 1-2 years and saw an over 500% increase in traffic. A second opportunity is better email marketing. The seller has never focused on growing the email list consistently or actually sending emails. Third, focusing on broader topics like credit, debt, banking, insurance, etc., has huge potential for the blog. Finally, a recommitment to steady link building would also help with growth. In the early years, the seller focused on this but has not been as consistent with it in recent years. A stronger link profile would lead to better results.
The seller has acquired a few sites that he would like to spend more time on. He also enjoys freelancing and would like to free up time for that as well. After having been on the selling side many times, he enjoys running a business for 3-5 years and then selling it.
Subscription Based Newsletter | $40K+ MRR | 300K Email Subscribers | 600K Instagram Followers
Created in May of 2020, this a rare chance to own a subscription-based, online newsletter-facing media company. The newsletter and content site are dedicated to the cause of social good and transformation and tackle a wide range of topics, from inequality to soaring student debt. The business has been successful from day one, filling a glaring gap many young people have clearly been yearning for, which is evidenced by its 300,000 subscribers. The company satisfies this demand by publishing topical, factual, and well-researched newsletters six days per week that generate one-time and recurring revenue from its reader base, with the recurring revenue approaching $50,000 per month.
The single most effective traffic source to their newsletter is their owned social channels, particularly Instagram (600,000 followers), TikTok (20,000), Facebook (12,000), Twitter (4,900), and LinkedIn. Their content has resonated by posting short recaps across these social channels and encouraging their audience to subscribe and read more. To convert those readers from free to paid subscribers, they immediately enroll them in a nurture campaign that makes an ask based on their engagement, in addition to asks at least once a month delivered by email. Driving engagement from social media to the newsletter is a proven, powerful, and free growth strategy, and it eliminates any reliance on Google or other search engines.
The company is only in its infancy and the growth potential is immense. The most obvious opportunities include 1) creating an app for on-demand courses for schools and workplaces related to prevalent social issues, 2) investing in paid marketing tactics to grow the reader base, 3) encouraging like-minded brands to sponsor content in the newsletter, and 4) hiring an individual full time to translate the 400 newsletters’ worth of content into short-form video via YouTube and other video platforms.
The owner works part time, employs a full-time managing editor and assistant editor, and has 5–8 freelance writers per month who submit content for the newsletter. Now that work has picked up post-pandemic, the owner is eager to return to her previous endeavors and see a new steward take an already sustainable, thriving business opportunity to a whole new level.

Aphrodisiac Chocolate Biz w/ Massive Growth & Huge Margins | Selling Due to Co-Founder Falling Out
Launched just over a year ago, this is a truly unique ecommerce brand built by two unique entrepreneurs.
The founders have created a sensation, and sales have exploded, going from zero to over $500K per month. The brand has been featured on the popular My First Million podcast, gone viral countless times on TikTok, and been featured in the press on outlets like Vice and TMZ. While the business has grown tremendously, the fact that two busy college students cofounded it leaves multiple levers to pull for future growth and optimization.
The underlying product was formed via the insight that the massive sexual supplement market was taboo and outdated. In turn, the founders created a winning product that spoke to the younger generation. They marketed the product where the younger generation consumes content online (namely TikTok). A material portion of sales come from TikTok but not as a result of one or two viral videos. Instead, the owners have built a repeatable and sustainable sales process as evidenced by the systems they have put in place and the impressive sales figures that have been achieved in recent months. Strong sales come from numerous other channels beyond TikTok including subscriptions, Google Ads, email and SMS marketing, and more.
The founders wish to sell the business as they have had a falling out and are no longer having fun working together. Although the personal relationship has soured, the health of the business is as strong as it has ever been. February 2023 closed as the highest-revenue month in company history. Both cofounders are bullish on the future of the brand and would be open to staying on in some capacity or to rolling equity.
Garden Supply Biz | Amazing Growth | Partial SBA Pre-Approval | 99% 4.9 ⭐ Rating
Launched in 2018, this gardening supply company is experiencing explosive growth with a 27% increase in YoY revenue.
Amazon makes up 89% of sales, with the balance from the direct site, Etsy, eBay, Walmart, Faire, and wholesale. The top-selling SKU, which is trademarked, brings in 54% of revenue.
The current owner started this business as an extension of her own gardening hobby. As an orchid keeper, she found that the available products for her needs were all overly expensive or difficult to use. After researching and experimenting with different formulas, she found success with the current products offered and continues to add 6–8 new items each year. One such product has already had a formula developed and is ready for next steps with the current manufacturer.
With 96% of sales currently coming from the US, there is plenty of room for growth by expanding internationally, starting with Canada, Europe, and Australia. Continuing to add new products, such as bioactive soil and specialized pots, will also help to increase revenue. Creating new content for use on Amazon and on social media channels would increase brand recognition, traffic, and sales. Taking advantage of the email list with marketing campaigns is another way to boost sales.
The current owner spends about 10 hours per week operating the business. Inventory is split, with 20% at Amazon FBA and 80% at 3PLs; the latter can easily be shipped to Amazon or to a new location. The owner is committed to a smooth transition and will happily offer full training and support.
