Seller's Notes

 For sale is my Sims 3 and sims 4 games website!

https://www.allsimsmods.com/ 

I have aquired this website 6 months ago and have redesigned monetization from ADs revenue to subscription based model. This improvement served me well - during last 3 months, this site has brought me on average 700 USD monthly profit.

December  650 USD

January     640 USD

February   870 USD

 Visitors are free to browse website content and download about 30% of the DLC for free, but if they want to download other mods - they have to register as a member.  I have experimented with subscription fee from 3$ weekly membership, where they pay 3$ each week until they decide to unsubscribe,  to 29$ one time payment, where they become members for lifetime. Refund requests are rare - about only 95% satisfaction rate :)

I have also moved website from Http to Https about 2 weeks ago, and the transition worked fine regarding organic rankings.

I have also played a bit with website design, but it still need more improvements before visitors would completely trust website quality and be happy to pay membership fee.

 Most of the content was gathered through the previous 3 years, during my time of ownership i have uploaded some mods from around the internet. None of uploaded mods are copyright protected, and all of them are fan-made ( source list will be provided for buyer ).

 Website requires little hosting resources, i have it on my private server, where i keep my other sites, but hosting for 5 usd per month would do the job.  

  I can do the hosting website transfer for the buyer :)

  Website is based on Wordpress, so admin panel is really easy and secured.

   Subscriptions are running on paid plugin, that costs 99 usd per Year, and still has about 9 months pre-paid left since i have purchased it.

  I you have more questions just write PM, I am happy to answer,

  Also serious buyer would receive Google Analytics access.

  Good luck at the auction :)

Amazing work on the website, I wish I had enough money around to snag it lol. What methods did you use to get traffic?

@rivendell Thanks :) Pretty much all of the traffic comes organically, most from Google search :)

Hello again, some questions.

Your subscriptions are managed through PayPal, which unfortunately means they're not transferable and that the buyer will not receive that revenue. How much revenue is produced by new subscriptions each month?

What is the revenue breakdown by subscription type (3 / week vs 29 / lifetime)?

Will you provide the buyer with links and resources for finding new mods?

Thanks.

@TimCinel No problem, I have been using only one time payments for almost 2 months now, since the one time 29 usd payments seems to be more worth it. So there is only like 8 or 9 subscribers from these 3 usd weekly left by now.. On average members make 5-6 weekly payments for 3 usd each before deciding to unsubscribe.

Sure, new mods source list will be transferred for the winner. It's easy to update the site,

cheers

Thanks for those answers, dropping those ~8.5 non-transferrable subscribers would cut the revenue by about $100 / mo.

Is it straightforward to prove that the site operator has permission to distribute the mods? Do you ever have to defend (or satisfy) takedown requests?

Thanks!

@TimCinel Zero takedown requests received during my time of ownership and, to my knowledge, previous owner also received no complains whatsoever. For your questions just sent me PM, please.

Stats so far this month:

$406 from $29 one-time membership payments ( 14 payments )

at this phase projected revenue for March $600 - $650 from 29$ payments alone.

Traffic this month has stayed pretty much the same like every month. Really stable consistent organic traffic.

I have removed BIN price, so the auction will end as scheduled in 24 hours time,
and the project will go to the highest bidder.

Happy auction ending,
If have more questions I am happy to help in PM.

Cheers! :)
