Seller's Notes

Rare opportunity to own a recipe site for one of the hottest kitchen appliance in the market.

Exact Match Premium Domain!

http://www.airfryerrecipes.com

The air fryer is not a new product but its new to the US.  International countries have been cooking with the air fryer for years.

See Google Trends for the Past 5 Years

http://take.ms/yMzPt

Have you heard of the Pressure Cooker?

See Google Trends for the Past 5 Years & how it compares

http://take.ms/MHS7u

Its on pace to be more popular than the pressure cooker.  I have one myself and use it 3-5 times a week.

Summary:

I acquired this website a few months ago as a hobby project and thought it be fun since i own one and use it almost everyday. 

Previous Listing:

https://flippa.com/8153583-airfryerrecipes-com

The website started growing and now its a bit overwhelming with multiple projects going on at once. If you scroll to the bottom you can see i have 3-4 other websites I have up for sale.

I just wont have the time or focus to devote to this project while its on its upward trend and i dont want to squander the opportunity so its up for sale. 

Why im selling

I acquired a wordpress website in April with a youtube channel that needs a ton of work in content and rebranding. Have a look and you'll see why. 

http://www.uploadwp.com/
https://www.youtube.com/user/UploadWordPress

Traffic Summary

Currently the traffic primarily coming from bing and facebook which is about 50/50.

The direct traffic is actually facebook referral traffic that is incorrectly reported by google analytics. 

Bing
Its held the number 1 or 2 ranking on bing for the last 6 months.

http://www.bing.com/search?q=air+fryer+recipes

Facebook Fan page 12,000 members 

Growing at 200 members a week organically without paid advertising.

Google

Traffic is struggling from google because it needs a few backlinks to really get going as well as content.

However its starting to ramp even without any link building or content additions in the last 2 months. 
http://take.ms/K2inm

I know what needs to be done and have a strategy for this just havent been able to execute it.  I will share how i would go about it with the winner.

~4000 visits the last 2 months.  April is missing 5 days of data because of an error in installing the analytics code.


Revenue / Monetization

The revenue is pretty basic coming from primarily Adsense and Amazon.

One area for opportunity is creating your own recipe ebook or kindle selling it directly for 4.99 or 9.99.

Over 50 recipe books have been sold

Revenue from Jan-Mar can be seen from the previous owners listing.

I saved screenshots for each month Dec 16 - March 17 which is available upon request. 

Software / Design / Backend

My strength is design / development so its where i've put the most value into the website.

The website is built on wordpress with multiple 3rd party plugins.  This is important in case any of the plugins or themes need an update the website wont break, nothing on the website is hard coded. 

The website was built using the combination of the following third party addons. ~500 in total cost.  

The website was built with the following plugins

Content Views Pro

@rdcrew3392

There are multiple ways to get recipe images. Taking photos yourself which is best since you can repurpose on instagram, using stock photos / flickr, via other websites with proper attribution.

Stock photo examples
https://depositphotos.com/search/fried-cutlet.html?2e49f2a7944d79dd23b4ada71c03b44c

I will be adding a submit a recipe feature over the next few days which will allow promotion via the facebook fanpage as well as website.

Recipes for air fryer and non air fryer are actually the same the only difference is that the cooking time is modified so everything for standard recipes can apply.

You can source recipes via other websites and modify cooking times.

@plk1024 A few of the recipes added were added original and are sourced with proper credit given.

The script is built that allows the option for the new owner to do both.

Can you describe your time commitment to maintain the site and current ad sense revenue (assuming the new buyer does not follow your grow strategy plan)? I need a sense of the "status quo" time investment.

@Asikelov If you're looking for a passive investment i wouldn't recommend this site.

Im a rookie when it comes to social media but there is software to automate and republish previous content for a monthly fee in which you can do what i do all in an hour or two once a week.

However, I spend 5-10 minutes a day and i usually post 1 or 2 times at the most.

If a post goes viral and shows good growth i usually dont post again for another day or two to maximize the reach plus reward myself for posting a good status update.

i.e.
https://www.facebook.com/airfryerrecipescom/posts/1704296536265929

There are times people share their recipes or creations to the page and i just reshare it.

i.e. same as above

https://www.facebook.com/airfryerrecipescom/posts/1634053699956880
https://www.facebook.com/airfryerrecipescom/posts/1576010562427861

i.e. sometimes ill just share what i cook for dinner
https://www.facebook.com/airfryerrecipescom/posts/1604318026263781

If you can somehow convince the head chef in your house and outsource content creation to your significant other it be an efficient way of creating content. =) Im a divorced single father who lives in an apartment that eats out 90% of the time.

If youre looking for a site that you can invest a little time and money and grow its value over time this would be a perfect starting point that already has a strong social media following.

This is a growing market and you want to be a first mover ... youll want to be able to invest time and resources.

@AsilKelov its pretty basic. The site was built to make it easy for anyone to take over. All the custom features is done via 3rd party plugins that cost hundreds rather any custom coding. This makes updating less worrisome and usually just a few clicks

You can see a 2min video of me this morning updating ~8 plugins and wordpress below.
http://take.ms/lWdyb

In terms of maintaining its 10 to 20 minutes a day posting recipes to the facebook page.

8 Hours to go....................

Good Afternoon!

I had some extra time the last night to add a few goodies to improve the site. I really enjoy optimization and design/developing when I have free time.

1. Added a new responsive ad block under the recipe title.

Screenshot:
http://take.ms/5LzKp

This should add a few extra bucks per month

2. Added Share a Recipe Feature - User Generated Content Submissions

Added a form where users can share & submit recipes. This uses a premium plugin called wp-types which allows for easy customization.

This submission feature still involves a little manual work before posting to the site but streamlines that process to a few simple steps.

3. To get the next buyer up to speed I've also pre-scheduled a week's worth of Facebook post as well.

The only technical knowledge you will need to know how to do is to add a recipe which is the same as adding a blog post with a few more custom fields.
