This was a website built as part of the original underachiever series by Ed Dale.
The original site was designed to sell digital ebooks via Clickbank. Since its creation, I have developed several digital books, which you will take complete ownership and title of as part of the ownership of the site. It used to sell dozens of copies of these books, but I haven't been maintaining it for quite a while, so traffic and sales have dropped off.
I would like to sell this to someone who might be interested in the topic, and who can do good things with it.
The home page is an email gathering page for people who are looking for the free report. There is a blog - at chickencoopplan.com/blog/ which has some of my own content.
Here are the things I will include in the sale of this website:
3 domains - you can keep or get rid of all of them.
- ChickenCoopPlan.com (over 5 years old)
- ChickenNews.com (also several years old)
- Chikins.com (a year or two old)
The following digital books / reports you will take title of to do as you like.
- Chicken Coop Living - a 65 page digital book in a question and answer style format
- Step by step chicken coop plans with my own pictures and description for building them
Basic rectangle mobile coop
Garden style mobile coop
- Public Domain egg recipe booklet
- Poultry manure public domain booklet
- Winter Eggs - how to get more eggs from your chickens in winter (this is a re-published Public Domain booklet)
- Plus some other reports
You get title to these reports. Although some of them are public domain, you can re-publish or re-work the information how you want to. You also get ownership to all website content - as long as it is material I have written and have marked myself as author. From the beginning, I have used the author name as a pseudonym 'Kelson Spear'. You can keep the author as the same and use the name yourself, or you can use any author name you want. I will agree and sign a non-compete agreement for one year if you would like to have that?
Additionally, I have a publisher account at EzineArticles.com with about 20+ articles posted up that you will take ownership and title of.

I am technically inept at web stuff, which is part of the reason I am wanting to sell. I won't really be able to help you transfer any of this data to your own servers or anything. I will do everything I can to make the transition seamless, but I can't help out a whole lot. Most importantly, you will need to be able to transfer the email list and script to your own servers.
Essentially, I am in way over my head with web-design, search engine optimization, and making digital images. I love to create content, but have not been able to effectively turn it into sales for a while now.
The reserve is set at $250 for all this. The content and traffic, in my opinion, is worth more than this, but I just feel like I need to get out while I still have some enthusiasm left in me.
Additional Revenue Details
Currently there is very little revenue from the site.
There are several other Clickbank competitors that you can promote products for on this site. That is what I have been doing primarily for the last several months. I would guess the income from Clickbank affiliate fees at about $40-100 per month. Adsense income is much lower - about $5-10 per month. This is with almost no promotion on my part.
I don't currently have any salesletters active, nor actively promote the digital books listed above. The digital covers I have are several years old, and I haven't updated the look of them for a long time. This could be an immediate improvement on income and product sales for someone who is comfortable creating high-quality digital images, or can hire someone to do it for them.
Overall - I would guess gross income right now is about $25-50 per month at best. And then the costs associated with it are - the domain names of about $10/each per year. And then the server... I am using a service that costs about $30/quarter. I am not paying for any content creation or traffic right now.
If you wanted to sell the digital book products (listed above), you would need to create your own new clickbank account or merge these into your already created account. I believe this would be a $50 one time free from clickbank. I haven't created an account in a while, so I'm not sure if the pricing is correct.
Additional Traffic Details
I have included a couple of Google Analytics traffic stats in the attachment area.
Let me know if there is anything else you need on this, and I will try and include it here.
I do have an autoresponder service - Listmail Pro, which I use to keep in touch with readers. There are currently over 1400 subscribers to the free 12-message emails. This is a back-end script that runs on the website's server. I rarely email this list, so someone new could come in and connect with them if they wanted to? There are 12 messages in the autoresponder, plus a whole bunch of other messages that you could use for more ideas. (These other messages are from email messages that I had used in the past but got rid of over time)
I have no idea what the value of the free traffic would be. However, if you see the traffic stats example of 350 visitors, and value them at .10/click - that equals about $35 / month in free traffic the site is currently getting from just SEO traffic. If you were to base it on 1000 or more visitors (as you can see in the AWstats), it goes up quite high for this type of focused, niche-related visitor.
