Why am I selling?
I am nearing retirement age, and I have too many websites and projects going on to keep up with such a schedule. The other choice I have is to let my sons take over the websites if they do not sell.
These 3 websites take very little time to run; it is a pretty much hands off other than answering a few calls and support emails each week.
What improvements could be made?
Expanding and doing a better job marketing and advertising. I use basic Google and Bing advertising. Improvements could be made by improving AdWord’s and Bing campaigns, keyword quality score and increasing the advertising budget. The biggest gains can come from SEO.
About the legal documents:
These are high-quality business and legal documents that were drafted by an excellent attorney. The documents specific to California were drafted by a licensed California attorney to comply with California law.
Unlike most documents being sold on the Internet, many of our documents and employee handbooks come with instructions, samples, and information from the attorney who drafted them.
In most cases, these documents are superior to what is being sold by the big legal form’s players on the Internet.

What makes your website better than its competition?
My main documents, information, and instructions are of higher quality than my competition. I have always hired experienced attorneys who are very good at what they do. I sell my documents to other law firms so they get a lot of legal scrutiny from other attorneys. The many conversations in the past with other attorneys confirm my belief that my main documents are superior to my competition. I don't anymore, but I used to buy documents from my competitors to compare to mine. My websites are easy to navigate and to order because the format is simple and clean.

Yes, if I am paid for my time.
What are the primary growth opportunities for the business going forward?
Although there is potential for growth in all states, the California market is the best and always has room for growth. Good potential because of my California specific websites. All my competitors have multi-state websites. I will also tell the new owner the other top states he or she could focus on to increase sales. I never used social media for marketing. I think the right owner could increase sales with the right marketing plan.

No, there are no geographic limitations.
