Seller's Notes

Quick Facts: 

  1. $500,000 per year in net income on Auto-pilot
  2. Over 41,000 Keywords Ranking organically
  3. Not only survived but THRIVED through every Google update (check SEMrush.com if you doubt me)
  4. 100% Organic/Direct traffic 
  5. 95%+ US traffic, the best kind to monetize if you ask me =) 
  6. Giant upside to double revenue with some elbow grease and patience. 
  7. Big increase in revenue if you figure out a way to decrease the bounce rate. 

Ok, without going into too much detail, after i purchased the site at the end of June I increased the revenue with a mixture of both technical and user experience changes. Nothing too high level, just basics: 

  • Faster Site
  • Better Design
  • Optimized Mobile Site
  • Better Conversion Process
  • A/B Testing
  • And some other tweaks which I'll reserve for the new owner. 

Why am I selling? I purchased the site thinking I would have a decent amount of home care leads for my home care startup, but it turns out almost ALL the leads are strictly for nursing homes/assisted living facilities and the other types of services revolving around these high paying transactions. 

The reason the site earns so much is because we get $24 per lead. 

Traffic always goes down around Christmas the Booms from January to March which are the biggest months. 

Right now, I have not even tried selling the leads to other verticals like:

  1. Long Term Care Insurance
  2. Financial Advisors
  3. Funeral Insurance 

Also, if you move to a private server and unique IP that will help with your overall speed which should translate to better rankings > traffic > leads > revenue. I haven't done this a bit of laziness and a bit out of fear, I don't like to rock the boat much. 

Another avenue is to sell the 50% of the leads that aren't currently sold to another company. There are a handful of high level, well capitalized companies out there that would be interested. The buyer or potential buyer with the ability to close a transaction, will get all this information. The reason 50% of the leads aren't sold is mostly because my lead buyer may already have them in their database as a duplicate so they obviously won't buy it again. 

All leads are auto-sent to my buyer the instant they are inserted and we get an immediate sold/not sold reply. 

At the beginning of each day I get get the previous days lead report and at the end of the month, they send me full list of all billable leads and i invoice them and receive my money 30 days later (happy to share bank statements and connect suitable buyers of the site with clients after some initial due diligence. 

As you might notice from my flippa rep, this is not the first time I sell a website. If you're thinking of any of the below please understand that I am looking to sell the website not get involved with partners or complex transactions: 

  • Joint venture (JV) deals (not happening)
  • A down payment and paying me with the income I'm already receiving (not happening) 

However, If you're a serious professional, with both the means and experience to purchase this exquisite asset, I'm happy to help answer any questions.  

What I'll look for from serious buyers, knowledge / awareness of the industry preferably. 

Ability to pay and prove it via screenshots of a bank statement. 

Good luck to you all. 

P.S- this is a 16 year old site, with evergreen content. The chances you could replicate the results, rankings, traffic on your own would be slim. And even if you could, why would you? It would cost more than what you could buy this site for. Save yourself the time, and invest in one of the top senior living assets on the web.

As part of the sale, the buyer will need to execute a sales agreement.

@edenhpg you're right, i just prefer to wait to find a serious buyer before delving into the fine details, because truth is most people who ask for more info, simply aren't in a position to actually complete a transaction like this one. however that doest not seem to be the case with you.

2015 income was $192,880 (for the right buyers, IRS forms available and bank deposits also, after buyer demonstrates ability to fund a transaction)
August 2016 (first full month I owned it- $17,940
September 2016 -$33,192
October 2016 - $46,278
November 2016 - $40,800
December on track to be around $30-40,000 also, but don't have full numbers yet for obvious reason that the month isn't over, however historically it is the slowest month of the year. People don't think about sending grandparents away during Christmas,.

Reason for income growth stated in description above.

hosting-$125/mth
I am not posting content.
My developers are a fixed cost to me so hard to break out figures on this, but there's not much to do lately after my initial work on the site to keep things going as they are there's actually no work at all to be done. ofcourse a new buyer will have to invest in more content etc... some of our competitors have 1M pages and do the same traffic/leads we do with only 1,000 pages indexed.

Ok so let me get this straight... you bought this site via deal flow less than 4-8 weeks ago for most likely $400k-$1m+, and you're selling because you didn't realize the leads weren't the type you were seeking for another venture? Seriously? You spent that much money based on an assumption and without doing your due diligence? I find that very hard to believe, please advise...on behalf of all serious and interested parties

@hdf711 thanks for your question. I can see how you might think that.

-I did not buy the site on dealflow.

-i thought I could take the leads that weren't sold and convert them to home care but they want assisted living and nursing homes etc... or they just can't afford much in some cases.

- worst case I figured I'd just use the revenue to fund operations.

- best case i figured I'd improve the site and sell it for a profit.

happy holidays and thanks for stopping by.

@hdf711 why would you assume he bought this 4-8 weeks ago when he stated he bought it August 2016? I also doubt, at the time making $15-17K per month, he paid $1M or even $500K for it, that would be a terrible multiple

@jeanpierrek I definitely would also like an explanation of the costs involved with the phone support number (both during office hours, and after). Are you answering the phone?

Also, how many leads on average are you generating per day? per month?

Are all the leads sold to the same party? or are there different parties buying leads?

@edenhpg all call center operations are handled by the lead buyer, cost to me is $0.

-no i am not answering the phone.

-1 client buying all the leads. there are more that want them too, but i don't sell the same lead to multiple people in the same space, bad business, however I can sell it someone in a different vertical, for example, financial advisors or long term care insurance.

-leads roughly 20-50 calls per day and 40-80 web leads per day. it oscillates daily based on day of week (mondays are always the highest and sundays the slowest)

@jeanpierrek So i assume that phone number is tied to some sort of software that logs when a call is made? And the number of calls = number of leads? So every person that calls that number is effectively a lead? Thats how you keep track? Or is it an honour system where the company strictly tells you how many of those calls were leads?

@edenhpg not every call is a lead, every qualified call as deemed by the buyer is a lead. It's an honor system with the calls. the web forms are tagged billable/non-billable the moment they are entered.

Also show cost of $125 month but you mention "your developers" doing something now and then. Can you explain a little more about what that would cost someone else to pay for when needed and what they did.

So correct me if i am wrong .your reserve is 2 mill? Our lead gen totally in different field (relocation) same as moving.com or 123movers.com so we spending about 1 mill a year on ppc (adwords). and we have network of lead buyers.
you have only one buyer which is more risky . on other site you have organic traffic.
question ...? why your well capitalized buyer not willing to buy this site?

@top_mover not sure if you know how auctions work, but the reason a reserve is private is a well documented process. That being said, you're assumption is inaccurate.

Also, regarding the well capitalized buyer, there are many reasons a company chooses to buy or not buy a site. For example, imagine a company just made a sizable acquisition, if you where in the early stages of on boarding the new acquisition and you're team was busy, your ability to onboard a new acquisition may be temporarily hampered or slowed. This is just 1 of any number of reasons a company may or may not make an acquisition.

Hi All. I don't mind answering thoughtful questions. While it's not fair to determine a buyers ability to make an acquisition based on 1 or a few questions, it's all I have to go off. Moving forward I'll only be answering questions from people whose questions signal to me the knowledge and ability to acquire this asset.

Additionally, if I message you in private and you wish to force the conversation in a public channel, I'll immediately stop all conversations and you're bids will not be accepted. The purpose of a private message is to have a private discussion. Moving it to a public comment is considered poor manners in some places.

Jean -- Would it be possible for you to tell us a little more about your client? Do they sell the leads you provide to care facilities? Or do they use them for their own sales funnel. Also, are the care facilities on your site limited to the clients' clients? Can you provide some more details about why your client buys leads? I'm trying to judge if your client relationship will continue past the sale. Thank you very much for considering my questions.

PM me if you want to take this conversation private. I can add massive value to this site, but I also have a very weird feeling about it.

@jeanpierrek I just wanted to comment on what a fantastic site you own. I've run across it a number of times, and considered being a competitor. Instead I went into another evergreen senior business that continues to grow like crazy.

To bidders and those considering this business, it would be difficult to find a better industry. Seniors are the fastest growing population in the USA. This will continue to be the case for nearly two more decades. The wave of Baby Boomers is unavoidable. Plus, do your research... the majority of the wealth in the country is held by people 50+ (http://www.freeby50.com/2012/09/distribution-of-wealth-in-us-by-age.html).

Seniors is an amazing industry.

Thank you for your reply. Please can I ask the following:

1) when did you buy the website?
2) what changes have you made since purchase - briefly
3) A lead from seniorliving gets sent over to CareJoy - do you expect that to happen in the future?
4) did you purchase the underlying company, or just the website/soft assets / good will?
5) are leads sent automatically, or do you send them an excel spreadsheet?
6) is there a 3rd buyer you could sell the remaining 28 leads to?
7) what is the average # of leads sold for a website like this - industry average?
8) what will CareJoy do?
9) are you prepared to sign a non-compete?
10) thanks :)!

@elitweb there can be several dozen, maybe several hundred reasons why.

i havent reached out to them
i dont know everyone that buys all leads.
i would be naive to think there are only 2 buyers of senior living leads in the country/world.

i could also earn money each day by forcing popups, and placing adsense, but i don't do that either.

- re. your 41K keywords. I can see only 37K, but 12K appear to have been added since Nov 2016 (SEMR). How did you achieve that please?

- Google says you have 1020 pages indexed, I guesstimate that around 200 contain articles (rather than directory listings). What would your guess be?

- Why are the bots ia_archiver, ia_archiver/1.6 (wayback machine) and CopyrightCheck disallowed?

- Do you or the previous owners have any current, or past connection with this website > https://www.retirementliving.com and if so, how should we view that?

Thank you

@autotim if you look at SEMrush, top organic keywords you will 45,102 scroll down, don't just look at the top of the semrush page, i dont know why they show different numbers at top and bottom.

i dont know about retirementliving.com but we are not connected.

the disallow features stops bots from scraping content easily, but there are always ways around this, it's not full proof, but i try to protect the site.

regarding the indexed page, i dont know how many are articles vs listings, if you end up being a high bidder im happy to look into it for you.

regarding how i achieved the increased keyword count, I explain all my improvements above already, it's nearly impossible to tell you which of the improvements are attributable to any individual keyword increase. my best opinion would be that all the improvements combined played a role. i was unaware that we added 12k keywords since Nov. we haven't added much content , maybe a handful of articles, so that was definitely not the reason which leads me to believe it was technical improvements.

Can you please provide details on how the content on the site is maintained. Specifically:
1. How often is the directory of listing updated and how?
2. What is the relationship with experts and how are their articles sourced?

The most obvious thing we all need to know, is that if it is earning you 500,000k every year ON AUTOPILOT. WHY the hell are you selling it?????????????

@amandabloom Hi Amanda, everything is relative. I could just as easily pose the question to you, why the hell aren't you bidding?

@jeanpierrek I'm sorry that reply is without any logic or meaning and entirely evasive. Whether I choose to bid or not has nothing to do with your reasons for selling. Once again, if the site is bringing you 500k per year ON AUTOPILOT then why on earth are you selling it? Why would I bid until I know this answer?????????

@jeanpierrek how can you reply with such inane and flippant responses when you're dealing with such huge amounts of money that you are asking other people to give you. It's a worry. Get real buddy.

@amandabloom there could be tons of reasons to sell. Sell to make a profit, need cash for other projects, no interest / energy to spending time on the project.. Also 500K could sound a lot for some people, not a lot for others.. Everything is relative, don't get why are you so upset.

Because you say it's on autopilot so you wouldn't need interest/energy.

@autotim To me it seems straightforward. Like many businesses, this business must have started out as one family member trying to find a helpful service for another. They probably didn't find the help easily that they needed and someone said, WOW! What a GREAT BUSINESS IDEA to make a site of information for others. That's me read.

Selling a web asset or any business allows you to cash out and reinvest your money and learnings.
No reason to be so shocked at why someone would sell a business. It's normal. Half the reason you get into business is for the exit plan. Wait a year for $500k or get it all within a week upon the sale? Go figure.

Regarding why someone might sell, you have to also consider the net post tax gains versus net after capital gains. You don't simply make $500k per year.

You dont buy something based on why someone would sell? Amanda Bloom you arent a business person nor do you have the money to buy. I sold cars for 10 years and the Blooms of the world come in and drive 15 cars waste your whole day and then ask at the end Why should I buy? Go waste peoples time at a used car lot.
