Seller's Notes

The site has made a total of $162,037 on adsense & $109,533.81 on content.ad till date. There are many posts that have gone viral serveral times. 

How is your business monetized?
Advertising (AdSense & content.ad)

Please describe your business model
Content ideas are harvested and generated from monitoring top trends, following similar competitors. Finding what’s going viral and what will work with our audience is the important task and once the conent ideas are generated they are written in house. It is then shared on 2 big Facebook pages with over 500k+ total followers. All followers are real and over 90% are from the US, the rest are from UK, CA, AU.

Revenue is generated via advertisements from AdSense and content.ad. 

The traffic is all organic and social.. Initiall buzz is generated from the pages then later by people engaging & sharing them. I’ve never paid for any traffic for this site. Only initial investment was building of Facebook pages which cost me around 30k in investment.

Are you the original owner of the business?
Yes

Which platform does the website use?
WordPress

Where the site is hosted and will this need to change after purchase?
The site is currently hosted on my own server and yes it will need to be changed after this purchase because I’ve my other sites in same server, but no worries I’ll guide you completely with the migration process if you can’t do it on your own.

Why are you selling the business?
I own a lot of sites of both similar and different in nature and lately it’s been very overwhelming with all the things I’m doing and trying to do and I just don’t have enough time for this one, so it will be better in someone else hand.

Can the website’s revenue be accurately tracked back to the website?
Yes, revenue can be accurately be tracked to the website. All of the claimed revenue is generated by this website.

Is the website’s revenue kept separate from other business and personal accounts?
No... All my revenue are in the same account.. But I’ll be glad to provide every proof required to verify it. And I’ve also verified both my AdSense revenue and analytics data with flippa.

Are you willing to provide live revenue verification?
Yes, upon request from serious buyers and/or Flippa marketplace integrity.

What are the main expenses of the business? 
The main expense is hosting, the site is hosted on a dedicated server with other sites so it would be around $100/month for this site. You can easily host on a dedicated server that costs around 80-100$/month if you have some server knowledge. I’ll do my best to guide you on this if you have no idea or you can easily optin for other managed WordPress hosting but they seems to be comparatively costly.

Are you including any social media accounts in the sale?
Yes both of the Facebook pages with over 500k+ fans in total are included with the sale.

Are there any email lists included in the sale?
No

What are the primary traffic sources of the site? 

Social - Content is shared on Facebook and generates organic non paid viral traffic resulted by the shares.. 
A lot of posts have gone viral this way generating over 100k to 700k shares.

Have you done any Search Engine Optimization?
No, SEO is not anywhere relevant with the model of this site so there’s been no SEO or link building done for the website.

Has the site ever received any search engine penalties (manual or algorithmic)?
No, to my knowledge since I’ve not participated in seo with this site there’s no auto or manual penalties.

How is the content of your website produced? Provide a step-by-step breakdown
Content is curated from a list of source sites and written in house. I’ve not outsource any freelance writers or anything but it can be easily done but that would add up to extra expenses.

Task 1 Option 1 - Finding content and getting it ready for production
Task 1 Option 2 – Finding older content that hasn’t been shared recently and share them.. this makes the site run on almost autopilot.. which is how it’s been for a while. I’ll provide you detailed spreadsheet of all the contents  and how to make the most of the spreadsheet.
Who - Owner
Hours per week – 4-5 hours

Does the owner need specific skillsets in order to successfully operate the site?
Basic ability to share links and use Facebook page is a required knowledge for the owner but it’s not a difficult task to learn even if the owner is not familiar with it.. I’ll provide a step-by-step note on how to do this. With having just basic skills the owner can run the site without any problem. But if the have better understanding of digital marketing I’m sure they can take it to next level.

Are you willing to sign a 3-year non-compete contract in the industry that the website operates in?
No, I’ll not be singing any non-compete contract because I’m basically in the same business.. building websites and growing them is my main job and these sites are focused on social traffic so I cannot say that I won’t build another site based on social traffic but rest assured I won’t be making an exact copy of the site, 
And the model of this site doesn’t really get affected by any competition. 

Will you provide 1-3 months of post-sale support & training?
Yes, I’ll be willing to provide as much support for at least a month but I won’t guarantee full support for over a month but we can always be in touch and you can ask me anything related to it.

What are the primary growth opportunities for the business going forward?
As I said earlier, I’ve a lot of projects to deal with I’ve not been able to put much effort on this one.. it’s been running almost on autopilot.. only few hours have been given per week to this site. The content isn’t produced as often as it should be. There are already enough evergreen content that can keep on bringing the same amount of traffic but to take it to next level it would be a good step to have some dedicated writers.

We already have a big following and there’s a vast opportunity to increase it even further across different social platforms.. There are many other ways you can expand this business and even create new business based on this model..

Are there any geographical limitations to the potential buyer of the business?
No, there are no geographic limitations.
