For sale is a sim unlocking business that was started in 2012 and has become one of the top services in the market. The idea originated when the smartphone boom took over. At the same time, different carriers charged different prices but locked the phones purchased to their system. Many times, prices would vary significantly. Thus, the idea to begin a sim unlocking service seemed fruitful and it indeed has been. A professional developer was hired to build 5 API coded sites with a unique easy to use admin back panel. Customers complete the simple to use order form and pay online via PayPal. The business charges a standard fee per unlock. The user enters their phone’s imei, carrier and model and pay and then the company processes it.
The business also uses a unique free forum marketing method to be taught to the new owner. They have barely done any marketing; they have created Facebook pages, Google ads and an email list of 1500 past customers which they have barely ever used. These are all included in the sale. They have not had time or the need to focus on any paid marketing as the sites mainly generate revenue organically.
The business is simple to run. They have a fixed set of templates for emails and copy and paste customer responses (included in the sale). They have an online chat which has been optimized for lead generation and to respond to customer queries.
