Seller's Notes

WritersNow.com is a turnkey fully-outsourced and fully-automated research assistance, writing and editing service with a great potential to generate profits. Management time is expected to be 10-20 mins/day.

The platform can serve any market and can be run from anywhere in the world.

Highlights

  • Huge global market for research, writing and editing services
  • Very high profit margin (50%+ for similar businesses)
  • Very low customer acquisition cost for such services (less than $10)
  • Very high customer retention / life-cycle for similar services
  • Potentially relatively high average order value, based on service quality
  • Automated order and delivery system, fully-outsourced
  • Natural organic growth, minimal advertising
  • Huge potential for repeat customers, each spending hundreds of dollars
  • Potential 50% year-on-year growth, as per industry trends

Time required to manage platform: less than 20 mins/day

  • Time will be spent answering support emails, verifying payments, and releasing new jobs to writers and editors through the management portal, a 15 second process
  • Most can be done using a mobile phone or laptop in the evening

Included in the Sale

Our platform is made of two components to maintain a separation between the customer and writers/editors. Writers and editors will not know where the order came from, and customers will not interact with writers and editors directly. The two platforms are connected through a back-link.

WritersCrest.com is the back-engine where the money really happens.

  • 100% custom, cost $10,000 to develop
  • Fully automated and can integrate with dozens of front-ends
  • Scalable, can handle 1000's of jobs
  • Robust and tested in the field for 2+ years
  • Built in C#/ASP.NET/SQL technology

Bonus assets (included!)

  • 30 days of transition support are included with the sale

Running Expenses – ~$70/month (or less)

Approximately:

  • Front-end hosting/domains/etc (~$10 / month)
  • WritersCrest.com Azure hosting (Expect ~$20/month for buyer)
  • Payment processing (123contactform.com, ~$25 /month)
  • Integration software (Zapier.com ~$20 / month)
  • Plagiarism testing (PlagiarismDetect.org ~$10 / month)

BONUS! Most expenses have already been PAID for 2017 - ~$1000 VALUE!

Marketing & Growth Investment

  • Most business comes organically from loyal and returning customers and organic customer referrals (free)
  • The life time of each customer is estimated at 4 years before they start referring their friends and family. Customer acquisition is very cheap and retention very high
  • One can email the customer list with occasional discount coupons (free)
  • One can run classified ads during the high season to acquire new customers and propel growth
  • One could invest $100/month 6 months of the year (Feb-May, Oct-Dec)
  • The above strategy can provide 50% year-on-year growth

Revenue:

Research, writing and editing services are needed all over the world all year round. The demand for these services is expected to grow with each passing day, thus providing a ready market with revenues expected throughout the year.

After we created the site, we got into other projects whose demands on our time grew exponentially, thus precluding us from getting the time to monetize the site and grow the business, hence the decision to sell it and give others the opportunity to tap into this potentially highly profitable business.

Payment for services:

  • All payments can be processed via Paypal.

Business Growth 

  • A 50% year-on-year growth can be expected from this business, subject to the quality of services provided
  • Horizontal expansion: This business can serve markets across cities and countries
  • There is a great potential for growing the business through email marketing, marketing on social media platforms, and through affiliate marketing initiatives 

Reason for Sale

After we created the site, we got into other projects whose demands on our time grew exponentially, thus precluding us from getting the time to monetize the site and grow the business, hence the decision to sell it to give others the opportunity to tap into this potentially highly profitable business. We will be ready to offer tips from our experience during the support phase.

Google Analytics access:

The site has Google Analytics installed. Access will be offered to genuine bidders.

Transition

We will be available during the transition month to provide support and answer questions for a smooth transition process (details to be discussed with serious bidders).

Before bidding:

Please provide a brief line about yourself and funds availability. This is a turnkey fully-automated, fully-outsourced and potentially highly profitable business that can be run from anywhere in the globe. It took two years to build and we will consider bids accordingly.

Questions?

  • Drop me a message or leave your question here
  • Send me a message with your phone number or Skype and I will gladly get in touch
  • Serious bidders only please. We are happy to answer any questions

Are the stats accurate? Almost no traffic? Do you know what monthly revenue has been?
Also, how many writers/editors are part of the network and are they easy to find quality writers?

@ideadirect In response to your questions on traffic and revenue, please note that after we created the site, we got into other projects whose demands on our time grew exponentially, thus precluding us from getting the time to monetize the site and grow the business. However this business has great potential for anyone with the interest and time to dedicate to it. We have contacts of a number of writers and editors who are available for work, but one can also recruit his/her own easily through their preferred recruitment methods (e.g., advertising on job sites).

a really nice site. with no traffic or revenue at present, presumably directed advertising and perhaps membership sales would be recommended approaches to monetize writersnowcom?

I am seriously considering bidding, but unless I can see the backend then I'm bidding blind considering that is what I'm buying.

Hi,
The website says there were 4000+ projects completed. Is that a correct number? Also, how difficult is it to recruit writers?
