Seller's Notes

I’m selling this website with massive potential for growth and revenue. This website is a goldmine for a seasoned affiliate marketer who knows the ropes of growing a business.

Is it you?

What’s the included in the acquisition of this business?

  •        The domain name 10DaySmoothieCleanse.com
  •        Professionally produced website, complete with graphics, videos and exit pop-ups
  •        Fully built out membership area, inclusive of an introductory video, 9 video chapters, 10 videos for each cleanse day (all recorded by a professional actress.)
  •        A 143 page PDF eBook to read along with information on the cleanse
  •        A shopping list, recipes and master cleanse formula as resources
  •        A bonus eBook written by a professional dietician called “20 Simple Habits to Shed Pounds and Feel Fantastic”
  •        The entire framework already built out for affiliates, including banners, emails, reviews, articles and videos (check them out here http://10daysmoothiecleanse.com/affiliates/).
  •        All the systems and funnels needed for the backend working of this site.

This entire site was professionally created and produced, meaning that everything is of the highest standard, and very easy to market.

The 10 Day Smoothie Cleanse is based on the uber popular book by JJ Smith of the same name. It’s the most popular diet on Amazon. This business is built around the same program, with a few tweaks and different recipes. Ours was created by a certified dietician.

All this to say: it works amazingly. It just needs the right promotion to get it in front of the people who need it, and those who are willing to throw money at you for all this information

What’s the story behind the creation of this website?

This website was the brain child of my friend and I. In the wake of all the success that the guys behind The Venus Factor and the 3 Week Diet were enjoying, we set out on a mission to create a site that would make us millions too.

We spent 7 months developing the 10 Day Smoothie Cleanse, and invested about $36k on it all to date.  My partner is a professional videographer. So we were able to bring in an actual actress to do videos for us, and all of the video content is top-notch. It’s easily 10k worth of video product alone, a price that isn’t included in that $36k figure.

We offered the product free in exchange for testimonials for a while, so all the reviews that you see are from real people. All the pictures are real as well, though all the individuals pictured had to be compensated.

After we had a sufficient website, membership area and social proof, we listed it on ClickBank, offering a 75% commission for all affiliates. This website was built with the aim to rake in at least a million dollars. That didn’t happen.

By now you must be curious about why we’re selling, right?

Why are you selling this website, given the massive investment you’ve made?

If you’re the right person for this site, you will have already realized the crucial mistake we made when creating this website. We spent all of our money and effort into building the 10 Day Smoothie Cleanse, not marketing it.

That’s the reason why we’re selling it. We thought that putting together a professional team and a product would be the only steps we needed to take – but that wasn’t the case.

If you need a little more detail behind what we’ve seen to be our demise, here are three of the key weaknesses we found in our strategy – things you can easily fix to turn the 10 Day Smoothie Cleanse into the multi-million dollar product we envisioned:

  1.     Professionally written longer copy, with an actual person behind it. We didn’t have that luxury. We’re big on honesty, and we just didn’t have an actual individual to use as the face of this campaign and market it as hers, and our morals couldn’t allow us to hire someone to act like it was hers. If you can hire somebody to do this, you’ll be set.
  2.     An aggressive marketing strategy. We did very little marketing, because frankly we’re not marketers. If you’re a seasoned marketer with a well-connected network ready to jump on the next money-making opportunity, this product will be a walk in the park for you.
  3.     Targeted traffic. Even though this slightly falls under number 2, I think it deserves its own bullet point because it is a big thing. Targeted traffic is what makes or breaks a product like this, and with the right traffic and care the 10 Day Smoothie Cleanse will take off.

Let me be extremely honest here – we didn’t give this project the amount of care and attention it needed to bring us the goal we had in mind.

We ran $3.7k worth of ads for 50 days on ClickBank, during that time the site was generating a decent income, but it wasn’t nearly enough to what I thought was worth it. I run my own side business and other projects that have, so to me it wasn’t even close enough to the numbers that I was hoping it would be doing, so I lost interest in it and didn’t bother doing anything else.

Then once the ads run ended, the affiliates still kept pushing it, it was generating about $400 to $700 a month without any expenses, except Aweber at $20 a month. Hosting is paid for a full year at $120/year (shared hosting).

During the time that I lost interest in this project, we were delisted from ClickBank by a mistake (the month of October 2016, as you see our revenue dropped to 0). But, we've got relisted as soon as I found out and emailed them and we were up again, but we ended up losing our affiliates but then it picked up again. As it stands, we still have a few affiliates – last month, this site generated $520.

I’m not interested in partnering with anyone, because I have other projects in place that I’m working on.

What are the downsides of this product?

The only downside that I can think of, are the refunds associated with it. It is a digital product, therefore we have offered refunds based on the following criteria:

  1.     Expecting hard copy
  2.     No response – as I have mentioned before, I don’t dedicate any time to this project nor do I bother answering email for more than half a year now, I have no interest in it, so there is no customer support.
  3.     Problem downloading the product (that’s where you need customer support, because sometimes they don’t get the email or it’ll get sent to their spam box and they’ll still write and ask for it and don’t check their spam and if you don’t respond, they just ask for a refund.)
  4.     Product didn’t meet their expectation

Again, these criteria can be narrowed down very simply by hiring at least one customer support agent. So in other words, there are very few limitations to this product.

Who is the ideal person to purchase this business?

Even though I highlighted our top three mistakes, as it stands this site can generate revenue, just by buying ads and getting affiliates to promote it. If this sounds like your method of online marketing, then this could very well be your next project.

However, here are the people who would find this sort of thing a breeze:

  •        If you’re already a successful digital product vendor.
  •        If you’re a successful affiliate with a huge email list in this niche.
  •        If you’ve got a team of people who can make few changes and relaunch this product, it’s the next big thing. (After all, the original book mentioned earlier is still the #1 diet book on amazon, because this diet works.)

In reality, the sky’s the limit with this product. It just isn’t for a newbie, or somebody has no experience in the affiliate marketing realm for obvious reasons.

Other notes:

I’d be interested in getting more for this website, in spite of its current revenue. This is because of the $36k investment (I've got copies for those that are interested of all expenses) I’ve made so far, and the fact that it took 7 months full-time to build, plus my partner’s time.

Additionally – what we’ve built is the foundation of a very successful product that just needs the right attention for it to take off. We’ve pulled out all the stops and created a unique product. Think of it like this, we’ve already laid the foundation and built the building for you – you just need to cut the ribbon and get people to visit.

I've got a developer who can keep watch on this website, and fix anything that may come up (nothing has for the past 6 months, no issues at all), for just $60/month. We were paying him $100/month, thats because he was constantly updating stuff for us, but there is no need to now.

Winner is expected to pay within 48 hours upon winning the auction.

Payment accepted is through Flippa escrow.

The site is very easy to run and maintain, I just left it running for over 6 months without having to do a thing, but if for some reason the buyer needs help with anything, I will gladly help.

Good luck with bidding!

Hi,

There are few details that are missing from your listing. I would like to clarify them before considering bidding.

The most concerning fact in my eyes is the copyright issues.

As you have said, "10 Days Smoothie Cleanse" is the name of a well-known and a very successful diet by JJ Smith.

1. As much as I know, using her brand name and the name of her diet can lead to legal issues, for the same reason I can't manufacture my own sneakers brand and call it "Nike."

Have you checked this issue with a lawyer?

2. How much traffic does the site get on a monthly basis? Can you provide analytics (time on site, bounce rate, etc.?

3. Do you have other sources of traffic other than affiliates?

4. Have you implemented marketing strategies other than PPC? (SEO, Content marketing, etc.)

5. What's the EPC of the product?

6. What's the refund rate?

7. How many affiliates currently promote your offer?

I would love to get a clarification on these questions. The more, the better!

Wish you much success in sale

@teddymamo there is no copyright issue. The name of our diet is "The 10 Day Smoothie Cleanse" without the word "green". JJ Smiths has the word "green" in it. If you check amazon there are dozens of books with similar names.

2. I dont have google analytics installed, but I could do that if you need me to, that is if you're a serious buyer, you should perhaps find out my reserve before we take this any further.

3. No, I dont have any other source of traffic. We mainly tried to focus on affiliates.

4. No, its the same answer as given above.

5. Not sure how do I check my EPC on clickbank? The Order Form Sale Conversion is 5.25% for the past 3.5 months, thats as far as clickbank stats allow me to see.

6. For the past 3.5 months the refund rate its 7.65%. It could be lowered of coarse if you dedicated the time to respond to the customer messages.

7. Not sure how to check how many affiliates promote our product.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

@nomadicbuy We did plan to include 2 upsells. We were working on one and its half way complete, however we had to stop due to low earnings. We still have the contacts and everything and I'll gladly hand them over.

Few people asking about upsells, I thought I'd address this here publicly. Yes, you'd be able to add upsells and I do have a developer who will do this for you, he doesn't charge much. You'd probably pay around $300 or so to add them. Of coarse it'll depend on the graphics, how much work it involves etc.
