I am selling two website together.
These relatively new websites are already making strong revenue, and have been very well received by advertisers. These sites represent a great opportunity for the winner of this auction to make a high return on investment in a very profitable industry.
Both websites have been carefully built over a period of a few months and are completely ready for the buyer to use.
Lists guest accommodation of all types, from all over the world.
i have had many compliments from accommodation owners telling me how easy it was to create a listing compared to other places they advertise. They also like the fact that they can link to their existing booking method and do not have to manage yet another availability calendar. The site currently lists 1270 accommodations... this means there are well over 2 million accommodations around the world which are potential customers. Revenue growth possibilities are absolutely huge.
Lists Guided and Self Guided tours, sightseeing trips and safaris.
This website has been very well received by Tour Operators because there are not many places where they can advertise individual trips and tours, and the few places they can, charge them a fortune to do so. The scope to increase revenue on this site is massive. The site currently has 1580 tours listed, but there are literally hundreds of thousands more out there, all of which are potential customers.
Revenue Figures - Both Sites Combined
Please note that all revenue so far has been taken in £ GBP. The buyer can take payments in whatever currency they wish. USD figures below were calculated using xe.com currency converter at the time writing this listing.
The revenue figures above were achieved from working on the sites on a part time bases. These figures can be achieved relatively easily, and improved upon as traffic grows, and as the buyer progresses the site.
This website was launched in April 2107. The website offers free and paid advertising to accommodation owners. Revenue is made when an accommodation owner purchases or upgrades to a paid listing. Currently over 6% of listing owners have opted for the paid listing.
There are currently 87 paid advertisers on the site, all of whom have purchased a featured listing at the price of £39.50 for one year.

There are well over 2 million guest accommodations in the world. Hotels, Bed and Breakfasts, Guest Houses, Inns, Motels, Hostels, Cottages, Apartments, Condos, Villas, Homestays, Holiday parks, Touring sites, Cam Sites and more. I have hardly scratch the surface in terms of the potential revenue that can be made with this website.
This website was launched in March 2107. The website offers free and paid advertising to Tour Operators. Revenue is made when a Tour Operator purchases or upgrades to a paid listing. Some Tour Operators upgrade multiple tour listings.
There are currently 46 paid listings on the site. All of which have paid for a years advertising at the rate of £25.00 GBP for one year.

The reason drop on this website in May, is simply because I focused my time into promoting IdealPlaceToStay.com and did not contact any new Tour Operators in that month.
There many thousands of Tour Operators around the world. most of whom offer multiple tours, trips, treks or safaris. The potential for growing this website is truly massive.
How Revenue Is Made
Both sites generate revenue by selling Featured listings to advertisers. This is done in two ways... an advertiser can purchase a Featured listing when they sign up, or an advertiser can upgrade to a Featured listing at any tom after signup.
Both site offer Free and Paid Featured listings. By inviting advertisers onto the site to create a listing, you make sales from those who opt for, or later upgrade to, a featured listing.
The site is designed to make it very easy for the advertisers to see the value in a featured listing and purchase a featured listing. Literally years of testing sales methods whilst building this type of website have resulted in a system which works extremely well and maximises revenue. To start earning revenue from day one, you simply have to invite relevant businesses to create a listing.
Day To Day Running Of The Sites
As mentioned above, revenue is made by inviting relevant businesses to create a listing. This can be done using email, social media ads, phone calls and any other method you can find. This is the part of day to day running of the site which takes the most time. Obviously, the more time you put into it, the more revenue you can make.
Other day to day jobs include replying to email, approving submitted listings and answering support queries.
This is not a set and forget site with a passive income. As with any legitimate sustainable business, work is required to maintain and progress revenue streams.
The sites can feasibly be run on a part time basis. However, the more time you can put into it, the more you will get out.
I will provide full training on how to use the site, how to deal with customers, and I will offer advice on how to find and contact new potential advertisers.
Both sites are relatively new so traffic is around what you would expect. The potential for growing traffic on both sites is huge and this should be a focus of the new owner.
Traffic shown in the Google Analytics graph above is just for the website TripsTreksandTours.com because Flippa can only link one G analytics account.
I am happy to share analytics data for both sites with anyone who expresses a genuine interest in the site.
Opportunities For The Buyer
The site are relatively new, so the opportunity to attract new listings is vast... The site have been designed to make it very easy for business to create listings, and very attractive for them to upgrade to paid listings. The new owner will have no trouble getting new business.
The opportunity to increase traffic is big and should be a priority. Simply attracting new businesses onto the site to create listings will increase traffic, because very new listing is new content on the site.
There are opportunities to add other revenue streams such as adsense or affiliate bookings content.
There are opportunities to create and develop social pages such as Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Instagram and more.
The buyer could quite easily add a Blog to both sites and publish related travel/tourism content.
Both sites use the very latest framework (Foundation 6 Flex Grid) to provide cutting edge mobile first design.
The buyer will need Linux hosting with Mysql. I recommend a VPS or dedicated server to ensure the site runs nice and fast. I can recommend a specific VPS product is the buyer wishes.
Included In The Sale
After Sale Support
I will assist in moving the website to the buyers hosting, and will complete the domain transfers.
I will provide full training on all aspects of running and maintaining the site.
The websites are very easy to run, so I do not anticipate any problems with the buyer running the sites without support, very quickly after the sale. But support will be provided for at least 1 month, although in reality I am always here and happy to help if you have any problems after the one month.
Reason For Selling
Having spent months working on the design and usability of these sites, I would now like them to go to a person or company who has the time and/or resources to take them to the next level.
My Ideal Buyer
I want to find someone who not only wants to make a very good return on investment, but who is also interested in building traffic and making both sites into something really special.
