Seller's Notes

Seller's Notes

IguestBloh.com is For Sale!

Just the Facts: A site that has subscription revenue of over $3000, made over $55k TTM and continous Google organic traffic

 

What is guest posting?

Guest posting is getting content with a link to the client live on a 3rd party website. So let’s say we have a client, we will write an article with his link inside and get this live on another website. This will then increase his/her Google rankings.

We also provide monthly seo recurring (monthly) packages 

 

Why should you buy IGuestBlog.com?

The guest blogging niche is very valuable and sought after by big businesses from many industries: education, real estate, finance, and jobs, just to name a few, but don't forget small local businesses! Everyone wants to have a good web presence and everyone knows guest posts are awesome to get better google rankings.

But more importantly, this is an established moneymaking business that already generates an average of $6-7000 a month and over $3000 of recurring revenue!

IguestBlog.com is a fledgling brand!

IguestBlog.com is an established website serving various seo clients with solid revenue. The site ranks #1/2 for nearly all keywords in its niche

Here are some of the many lucrative very targeted keywords IguestBlog ranks at the top for:

These keywords are SUPER competitive, it will take you approx 500+ or more unique root domain links from quality sites to even break into the top 10, but fret not, we’ve done all the hard work for you already!

And you know this traffic converts! Look at the revenue ATTCHED to the listing for proof. The right buyer can take this site to the next level. Will it be you?

Why am I selling IguestBlog.com?

If I had it my way, I would NOT sell this website, but circumstances demand that I do.

What are the circumstances, you may ask? I have invested into several other web & Offline ventures and they demand increasingly higher numbers of investment to keep them pushing forward.  

The winner of this auction will receive:

1. Website: Includes IguestBlog.com all files / installation.

2. Domain: IguestBlog.com.

3.  The Stripe account to be transferred to your stripe account, you will need your own stripe account. Please see the countries stripe works with here: https://stripe.com/global

*BONUS* 90-Day Support: I want to see you succeed! You'll get my Skype, cell phone, and email in case you need guidance during the transition. This does not include any coding or services. Just questions and answers. I will share some ideas for growth both in terms of revenue and traffic while I help situate you. In addition I will help train and locate staff for you as required.

The auction is open. Bid with confidence!

My account has 100% positive feedback.

F.A.Q.  Message me with your questions!

What kind of payment do you accept?

Only prompt payment made through Flippa escrow

When bidding and winning the auction you agree to release payment as soon as website files and database + domain have been transferred.

The domain is registered with Godaddy so be sure to have an account ready with them.

If possible the ssl certificate will be transferred if not you will have to buy an SSL which is as cheap as 10 dollars.

I will be happy to transfer files for you and set up the site working on your server, if I am given the logins necessary to do so.  I prefer to simply hand over the hosting account to the new owner to prevent any downtime, this comes with the added benefit of the SSL remaining attached.

What kind of SEO work have you done?

I've done all the seo work myself. It would be impossible to list them all, but pretty standard work. Like, social media links, guest posts. Web 2.0, blog posts, blog comments, etc. Don't freak! Google still loves the site and it has been ranking #1/2 fo FOR EVERY TERM IN THE NICHE. WOW! Forget about what you've heard. The proof is in the pudding. See the attachments or semrush/ahrefs for proof!

What is the copyright status on the photos you've used?

The copyright status of most photos is unknown, but I have never received any complaints. Originally, I just grabbed photos from Google Search, including pictures of the members of the team, it instills confidence in buyers and gives sales so it serves it’s purpose if that bothers you in any way change it when you win, simple.

Yes, I own the rights to the entire site content.

What accounts for the steep decline in revenue after August ‘16 and how were you able to recover?

here is no steep increase or decline it was a high ticket sale. Also except for one month (September) in which I did not attend to business, after September it has been regular. Mind this is a service based site, what you put in, is what you get out. That said we know have  + $3000+ Recurring Revenue billing on a number of projects which are 100% transferrable to the new owner.

How are guest-post relationships managed? Do you have writers that work at each blog? I assume you pay them, a portion and they post the article? 

I have a number of editorial accounts or direct contacts via email one some of the sites but far from all, the ones that I have will be transferred as is without any warranty as there is no way to guarantee something I do not own. As for the expenses, so far I have pushed clients towards those publications to which I have direct access or in case they bought others then I simply offered them an alternative to sites which I do have access to after they have paid of equal value to their purchase. Hence my costs remained 0, except for my own time. 


I did not pursue this method you mentioned where one pays a writer working at a publication, due to the fact that some writers may be fickle and cause delays or do not proceed as planned or have other issues. Before I owned Iguestblog I have done guest blogging for a long time as a freelancer and this was my experience, I will be happy to advise the new owner on this option or other options if he or she may feel that risk, of this option I did not pursue, is suitable for them.

How will the above guest blogging relationships be transferred to the new owner? Will you make introductions, provide a list of contact details, etc.? Or will it be up to the new owner to develop their own relationships.

The contacts/logins that I have will be transferred as is without any warranty and "as is" as there is no way to guarantee something I do not own, whether a site publishes or continues relationships after a new writer submits content that is not up to standard is entirely up to them and the new owner, sometimes sites stop working with guest post writers or simply do things internally too, there are way too many factors here.

This will include logins where applicable on spreadsheets and 2 gmails in total that have outreach done over a long period and has webmaster contacts. These spreadsheets are not meticulously organized but will provide a guide to what may be available in the emails or via logins.

All in all the outreach that is done in the form of emails and spreadsheets and logins is something I would like to offer as an extra to the transaction, not something which can be grounds for complaint based on the contents nor part of the main assets which are part of the transaction. That said the value of this extra addon is something they will find useful as it will allow them to get off the ground running right away. 

IN SHORT: You do not purchase the outreach emails or relationships. These are NOT part of the assets of this sale or escrow. I will include what I have (2 outreach emails, one spreadsheet with details ), as is, without any warranty along with the site sale for free as an addon.

**Please note I have been ID verified by Flippa and for this listing, the site has been checked thoroughly by the Flippa due diligence team as well as by the Director of Websites Marketplace of Flippa.
