Monetization

I've been monetising the blog using Fiverr.com to sell things like article posts, sponsored reviews, links in the footer page, backlinks, marketing packages etc. I've attached my Fiverr revenue, along with a screenshot of the gigs I've been offering.

  • Sell Advertising
    The site is layered with advertising space for you to go out and sell advertising to marijuana related businesses.
  • Review Affiliate Links
    For each product review on the website, we’ve added an affiliate link (a link that tracks the person clicking it and pays you a commission when someone buys the product) so that when people read reviews and click through to buy the product, you earn 10% of the sale. Depending on the product, that could be between $10-70 per sale.
  • Sponsorship Opportunities
    Popular blogs are great for attracting sponsorship. Brands pay you to promote their products on your website. You decide what they pay!
  • Fiverr Revenue
    Sell backlinks, content, articles, reviews, anything related to marijuana on Fiverr.com

Sale Includes:

  • All website files, domain and content
  • A list of 1000 marijuana dispensaries and their contact details
  • All the templates I've used to create Fiverr gigs
  • Full training and support to get you started
  • Full set up so you can earn money from day one

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is the content unique?

I'd say at a rough guess, 25-30% of the content is unique and rest is imported from other blogs. We have permission to use this content on the basis we link back, which we do.

It was listed before on Flippa?

I bought the domain and site from the last owner in a private sale and have no other affiliation with him. I converted the site he'd built into a blog and relaunched it in August.

Why am I selling?

I've spent the last 3 months building up the traffic and content in preparation for a quick flip to someone who can now take this blog to the next stage of its journey. Other commitments mean I don't have the time to manage this business as well as I'd like to.

What do I need to do?

I'd recommend you start creating more original content, outsource the SEO and the social media and hire in a sales team to contact advertisers. Or you could just let your Fiverr account grow with sales and use other people's content to build out the site.

Is the traffic real?

All of the traffic is real and has come from a variety of sources. We had a huge spike in September because we did a lot of marketing on sites like Reddit. 

Any other questions, please get in touch! I accept Flippa escrow or Paypal. 

I'm also selling a marijuana dispensary finder, ending 9th Dec: WhichDispensary.com

Hi guys, revenue from fiverr continues to trickle in. Getting a lot of ad sales, link sales etc. so have set up an Ad management system, which will be included in the sale. This means processing a Fiverr order takes roughly 1-2 minutes and all management is automated with renewal requests being sent direct to buyer for easy upsells.
