Seller's Notes

Hello Everyone,

For sale is a 4 year old affiliate site in the health niche. The site focuses on the popular herpes niche and provides information on natural treatments and remedies for the herpes simplex virus.

It’s estimated that there are over 3,7 billion people in the world living with herpes. Source:

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2015/herpes/en/

Currently there exists no antibiotics, creams or other medicine that can provide a permanent cure for the herpes simplex virus.

Therefore the potential to keep making sales for many more years to come is there.

Why am I selling?

I’m in need of investment for other projects of mine.

Site information:

The domain name is registered since 2013 and since 2015 the site has been ranking actively in the search engines. It’s accepted as an authorithy site in it’s field and all the content is based on actual research.

The visitors to the site enjoy informative content as well as buy the digital product being promoted as a way to treat and manage their herpes simplex symptoms.

The website is based on the wordpress platform with all the latest updates to wordpress and it’s plugins.

The theme in use is elegant premium theme and is mobile friendly.

The domain name has been renewed until 2020.

The site speed and performance is very optimized and has a score of over 90%. To find out more see this link: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/herpessecrets.com

https://www.semrush.com/info/herpessecrets.com?db=us

http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/herpessecrets.com

Traffic:

The site is ranking high in search engines for high volume targeted keywords.

Additionally the site receives traffic from targeted social media sources.

All the backlinks are made manually and all content is 100% original and of high quality. The content on the backlink sources are 100% original as well.

Most visitors to the website are actively searching for the product, and are extremely targeted and willing to make a purchase.

Security:

The website has a 3 year comodo security certificate.

You’ll find details regarding the security certificate on the following links:

https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=herpessecrets.com

https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=herpessecrets.com

Information regarding changes in sales and traffic:

SEO sites tend to get affected by google updates. Google always gives you the rankings you deserve as long as you don’t resort to spamming.

Google has brought many new updates for nearly 3 years and the site hasn’t lost any significiant ranking during this period. This proves that the SEO work that has been done is of high quality and doesn’t involve any kind of spam.

Apart from this theme updates and wordpress updates also play an important role in the site’s ranking. Even though there has been a minor decline in sales it has steadily been picking up and keeps increasing. More sales are to be expected.

Expenses:

The domain has been been paid for until 2020 and the security certificate has been paid for until 2020 as well.

The only real cost to the buyer is webhosting which will cost no more than $5 - $10 per month.

There are no other costs whatsoever.

The largest expense was during the initial ranking period in 2015 and 2016.

The site has social media accounts on:
google plus, youtube, facebook, pinterest, twitter, dailymotion, vimeo, tumblr, blogger, wordpress, reddit, stumbleupon, myspace, gravatar, linkedin.

These social media accounts will be given to the buyer as well.

All traffic comes from natural search engine rankings and social media 100% free, no money is being spent on traffic.

Earning potential

The site is currently making money and will keep on making you passive income.

The main target is USA where many have the herpes simplex virus. Up until today the site has made sales to many countries, however most buyers are from the USA. These statistics can be shown to serious bidders.

Ways to improve earnings:

Adsense and selling of banner ad space can increase sales.

Since the site is in the health niche, more money can be made by linking to natural treatment products on amazon.com.

Because the site ranks on the first page of search engines targeted medical products by large pharmaceutical companies can be advertised on the site.

Profit:

Even though the site has been online since 2013, active work on the site has been done since August 2015. The site kept making more and more sales as the search engine rankings kept improving, once the site got good rankings the sales have been steady ever since.

In total the site has made nearly $50,000 USD in pure profit last year alone.

Desired amount for the site:

I’ve spent countless hours working hard on the site to make it what it is today. I sold my last site on flippa as well and compared to that site this site is much more professional and based on more exprience.

The buyer shall get everything that comes with the site and start making money from the site right away.

I want the bidder to take a good look at the statistics and the information and make an honest bid on the site. I don’t want the bid to be too low nor for the bid to be too high, I am simply asking for what the site is worth.

I’ll be around during and after the sales process for support should you require it.

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your time and best regards.

@rlewisehs

Hi,

It's usual with fluctuations in rankings do to change of trends and updates.

In January Google's and other search engines updates, wordpress update and theme update all took place in the same month, that's why there is a drop in January. But as you can see traffic and sales are on the rise again.

You should look at the website as a long term investment. SEO sites are steady money makers, there might be some decrease as well as increase from day to day and from month to month.

For more information please read the description.

If you have any question and/or comment please do not hesitate contact with me.

Thank you

How do you figure 50K in profit? I added up your monthly profits from above and its about 25k

@rremick Hi,

In the images I have provided only 12 months of profits are visible. It's this way because flippa asks the seller for the past 12 months activity only.

Another reason is honesty, as to not deceive the buyer on earnings only past 12 months activity is visible in this auction.

While going through the statistics I noticed that $48,269 is the total sales amount for last year (2016) and out of that figure the profit for me as the affiliate was $35,804 then there appears to be refunds of $3,995 total for 2016.

The buyer can easily increase profit by building an email list on the website and collecting emails/subscribers.

In total the statistics for 2016:
Total sales 1,027 sales * $47 per sale = $48,269
Refunds 85 * $47 = $3,995
Total commission to me as the affiliate (75%) after refunds and vendor profits = $35,804

I apologize if this has caused any confusion.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Best Regards

I started looking through your earnings proof and cant figure out whats going on. All sales are through click2sell.com correct? Why is there not just a summary for each month? Your video shows one day only? What good is that?

@premiumEsites

Hi,

I'v attached a screenshot of the refunds which was 8,27% for 2016.
I made 1,027 sales in 2016 out of which there were 85 refunds.

See this for refunds:
https://flippa.com/auctions/8644408/attachments/1424129.png

I have no idea which herpes product was yours on clickbank, but I've examined all the herpes ebooks out there and most of them were lacking in good information.

Most herpes ebooks I've seen are 30-50 pages and written in large font size and the information in them isn't good at all.

While the product I promote has an ebook that is 107 pages and has a comprehensive diet and many good bonuses as to over deliver in value to the customers.

Best Regards

No, I am not the vendor of the product.

I don't have any products of my own, I'm very good at SEO and I promote others products as an affiliate.

Hi,

I have a few questions regarding the sites income and expenses.

1) Is this passive income or is there work involved for the buyer?

2) For how many months/years have you been making a living from the site?

3) How much are the expenses to run the website?

Waiting for your reply.

Hello,

I will try to answer your questions below to the best of my ability:

1. Yes this site will provide you with 100% passive income, there is almost no work at all involved if you don't want to put in any work, from time to time you will get emails from potential buyers with simple questions and that's about it, you simply need to reply to these emails a few times per week which won't even take 15 minutes in total time spent per week.

2. The site has been making passive income since July 2015, which equals to almost 24 months now.

3. There really aren't any real expenses to run the site, besides renewing the hosting and the domain name which has been paid until 2020. Hosting should cost you no more than $10 per month and domain is $10 per year but already paid until 2020.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks

@Tolvic

Hi,

There were false accusations by a commenter with no evidence to back it up.

The intention seems to be to ruin this listing with false accusations and the person in question has been reported to flippa multiple times.

I have no idea why someone would go into all that trouble to ruin my listing, I just hope that flippa will do the right thing here and warn or ban this person.
