Seller's Notes

Overview

I love modified cars and I've started this website back in 2012 to gather everything from the "tuning world" in just a single place: the newest projects from tuning companies, unique builds, news from tuning shows, videos and.. even games.

It started as a passion and, since I've received links from some of the best automotive sites out there, the readership started to pick up pretty fast and from 2013 the traffic and earnings have been pretty stable.

I wanted it to make it the best car tuning site in the world, but since I have just a little time to spare every day, I couldn't do everything I wanted with the site.

Monetization

The site is only monetized through AdSense right now and from time to time I've sold sponsored posts for prices ranging from $100 to $150.  Last year we've made $325 from Sponsored Posts and this year we've already made $150 for a single post in February.

Below you'll find the screenshots from Adsense, showing the earnings for every year/month since the site has been started. As you can see, the earnings are in EUR, which was most of the time a lot higher than the USD.

In the past we've also sold a couple of banners to several companies dealing with performance parts for prices going from $50 to $100/month but those deals didn't last too long. If you have the right connections, I'm pretty sure you can get more clients interested in advertising on this site.

Technology

The site is based on Wordpress so it's pretty easy to update the content, edit articles or change the design

What's Included

- The domain TuningCult.com (registered at Namecheap) and all the site's files

- Over 1,400 unique articles and over 17,000 images.

- A custom made Wordpress theme (worth $400)

- The social media accounts (Facebook with over 6365 fans, Twitter with 537 followers)

- Vectorial Logo with source files (perfect for t-shirts/prints)

- Support with everything (transfer, content sources, helping you learn how to update the content if you're new to Wordpress)

Why do I sell it?

I had a lot of plans with TuningCult.com but I don't have enough time to take it to the next level. I'm sure someone else can do it with just a bit more time and dedication.

The content is sourced from other automotive sites and from press releases received through the contact form. I just rewrite the text in my own style to make an original piece.

I post 2 articles/day but the articles are usually written over the weekend when I have more free time and schedule them to post during the week.

The traffic used to be a little higher because we were getting a lot of visitors from Google Images, but after Google changed the Images interface to what it is right now it dropped a lot and remained stable.

It's on the first page for 'tuning cult', 'tuning babes' and a couple of variations of these KWs, plus car/bike specific keywords, like 'panamera gts tuning' or 'ducati diavel tuning'
