HUGE Flight-School Directory. Big Potential. *Must See. *No Reserve

Stunning Flight School Directory With 1,113 School Profiles. Amazing Original High Quality Photo/Video Content. Comes With Fully Integrated Payment/Subscription with 3 Subscription Plans.

Hey guys!

Up for auction is a cool opportunity for an individual or team interested in aviation and simple way to build a stream of passive income. As an avid pilot myself, I saw that there are very few effective ways of finding a good flight school. I found that the few directories that do exist could be much cleaner, simpler and focused, so thats what I set out to build. Another cool thing I should mention is that all the photos and videos on the main site where taken by me, which is extremely valuable and gives the site premium and high quality user experience. You'll get the .psd files for the logos as well which are also original works created by me. The site is built on WordPress.

Why am I selling? Over the last month I've realized that I love the building and creative phase, it puts me in "flow" and I enjoy it. Its the next step: sales/marketing that I dislike the most, I honestly just don't enjoy making sales calls, sending emails and following up even though most entrepreneurs enjoy it the most. So essentially I've done the gritty work of building the entire site, all you would have to do is launch it and begin contacting the flight schools I've listed and grow the service. You could literally start making sales on day one, its all ready to go. 

Monetization:

The site is setup with the WooCommerce paid listings plugin, ($39 value) and the WP Job Manager Field Editor ($29 value). I have it setup for 3 different subscription plans: Free, Premium and Premium Featured. Check it out: http://getflighttraining.com/plans-and-pricing Of course you could also add or subtract custom fields and change the prices/plans. Its a pretty easy plugin to use.

Imagine getting just half of the list of flight schools on board with a subscription plan at an average price of even just $20 a month, that would be $11,200 a month, even if you converted just 10% of the leads to sign up with a paid listing plan would give you $2200 a month. If you made 50 phone calls a day you could cover the whole lead sheet of flight schools in just 22 days. Flight schools are pretty easy to get ahold of as well, its not hard to get in touch with a decision maker or even the owner as most of flight schools are small businesses. 

Aside from paid listings, you could easily add banner advertisements, the Listify theme makes this pretty simple. You could even implement a subscription plan that would allow you email promotions to flight schools and generate revenue via affiliate marketing. 

Whats Included?

-Premium industry domain: getflighttraining.com

-Listify Directory Wordpress Theme, ($63 Value).

-WooCommerce Paid Listings Plugin, ($39 Value).

-WordPress Job Manager Field Editor, ($29 Value). 

-Original Logos, .jpg files and .psd files, unique and created by me.

-Original Intro Video and photos also unique and created by me.

-Excel contact sheet of all the 1,113 flight schools.

-30 day support from me for smooth transition.

-I'll also migrate the site for you if need be. 

Good luck and happy bidding!

How did you build the excel spreadsheet and how will it get updated for the future owner?

It does not appear to include any flight schools in Canada? We train more pilots for the EU than any other country.

@arnoldvilleneuve Hey Arnold, I built the lead sheet mainly by just searching yellowpages. The featured flight school on the front page, "Sunstate aviation", is a school I know personally, (its the school where I got my private pilots certificate). As far as updating; the initial list is intended to be used as a tool to not only start generating revenue but also to grow the site to a point where flight schools not on the list or from different countries begin to organically create profiles, (so the list will update itself as the site grows).

@Greyfrog Hey, sorry about that, its fixed now. When I updated the theme I guess the map widget got confused so I just had to reset it. Also in case you might be wondering, sometimes it takes a little while for all 1,113 pins to fully populate on the map, they’ll still show up in search results, it just takes time to load the pins. It loads right away though if I tell it to display 100 pins, I think this might just be from my hosting company or maybe its just my internet speed.
