Seller's Notes

Rare chance to own an amazing name, site and database with 100% passive earnings and huge growth potential.

Conquercollege.com gets over 2 million visitors a year with over 28% returning to use our calculator. The calculator allows you to save your results and come back and log in, we have over 10,000 active users and emails since we added this feature. We have never emailed this list.

Facts about the site

1) The site ranks top 5 for thousands of terms, including "grade calculator" which has 100,000+ exacts

2) The site has had zero maintenance and has steadily delivered for years the same revenue with peaks after college exam time.

3) We have 10,000 people signed up to the tool, these have never been contacted and more sign up each day.

4) We did have a banner ad on the site for a few months for $300 a month but we did not renew this as wanted to sell the site and it was an annual contract.

5) The tool is called "The Amazing Grade Calculator" this term gets 14,800 exacts on its own due to the strength of the site and history.

6) The site bounces between 2 and 5 for the term "grade calculator" wouldnt take much work to get it back top

7) The site runs on wordpress and we get a lot of comments which we have not been moderating.

8) The site has all organic links, it is used by universities and colleges and has natural .edu links. There are no paid links or any seo so the site is very safe and ranks for 1000's of keywords.

Growth opportunities

1) To add quality content that ranks and build the site out into a bigger resource.

2) To email toe 10,000 database of college students with job listings, scholarship info and more. These have NEVER been contacted. Also to grow the sites subscribers more

3) To develop an app which could be offered

4) To make the tool more user friendly an to update it

5) To add affiliate marketing, scholarship essay plans and more are very lucrative but we have not done them

6) To make the site a social hangout and to use the vast traffic

We are very reluctantly selling this to fund an Amazon business and increased stock requirements, it has been a complete banker and just sat there.

We think that with not much work, this superb name and sites traffic could be used to make this into a truly huge resource, we just do not have the time ourselves.

@sitesoflove can you detail how much you spent on hosting and how you make sure it still runs with the high volume traffic at peak times?

@retze hi, it is hosted on our virtual server which costs £34 per month but we host a lot of sites on. The server stood up to the traffic spikes but we did quite a lot to optimize it for speed and it is quite simple and fast loading, thanks

Hi - a few questions please -
1 . What platform is the website built on top of (i.e Wordpress etc) ?
2. Are there any 3rd party components in use that would require additional licensing etc?
3. What programming language is the calculator functionality written in?
4. Are the calculator business rules documented?

Thank you

@DimS sorry. Overlooked this

1) wordpress

2) none all ours

3) good question my coder wrote it i will ask and revert

4) i think they are standard and taken from college grading systems. The actual code was done by a developer i use but i will find out more. I am very non tech apologies.

@siebertinvest Hi, i was very close to doing this myself and making it my main project, it was this or an ecommerce business and i went the ecommerce route.

My ideas were

1) There are 2 million or so students who are sitting exams so i assume they would be interested in post graduate education, jobs and scholarships, essay writing tips and exam tips. My idea was to invest heavily into content to build it beyond a resource where people check their exams but also a source of information.

2) A forum or other use of the vast traffic could work and make it more of a rounded marketplace.

3) I did have an app built for the calculator which could be sold or given with signups but i was not sure if this would take away the repeat traffic to the site as they would have the app so did not launch it. I think there is scope for an app

4) There has been very little social media done, i think that the demographic of the site is mostly on social media and there would be big scope there

5) The tool is not optimal in appearance and we have not experimented much with moving adsense, i think this could be optimised. The CTR is only 1% or so on ads.

6) To contact the 10,000+ subscribers to the tool and promote to them, they have never been contacted and more sign up each day

7) To add affiliate programmes on there, there are a lot of essay writing services and others that pay well but i thought it was a bit contradictory to have this great resource for students, then to offer a way of cheating by using a lot of the services of essay writing. Text book affiliates and more would be good but being from the UK i am not familiar with this in the USA as much.

8) Doing seo to rank it top would certainly vastly increase the profits, the site has a lot of passive and legitimate .edu links and i think is very linkable. I might disable ads for a month or 2 then go for a link push to rank it higher then re add adsense at a later date when it is peak time.

So a lot of ideas but i am all or nothing in business and opted for nothing and instead to use these proceeds in another venture that is doing very well.

Thanks

@justprofits hi. The dev made the tool years ago and it requires.no maintenance so there has been no cost for it. He works for me on other things hence i can let him work with new owner if they want to change it.

No there is no privacy policy but i will add one.

There are static ads on some pages (Tips from Top Professors, Tutoring Resources) that are static (not from adsense). Are these generating revenue or leftover ads from before?

Is the questia ad on the "Tutoring Resources" section a direct sold ad?

That is, where Adsense does not run and questia paid you for the campaign?
