Seller's Notes

SELLER INTERVIEW: 

How is your business monetized?

Advertising

Affiliate

Please describe your business model 

TableDecoratingIdeas.com started in October 2015 and it caters to table decoration ideas for all occasions. Website is earning through Adsense and some other platforms as well.

Are you the original owner of the business?

Yes

Which platform does the website use?

Wordpress

Where is the site hosted and will this need to change after purchase?

Website is hosted on Inmotion Hosting right now. Buyer will require server of his own to host this website.

Why are you selling the business?

I started this website about two years ago from scratch and it now gets decent number of visitors and earns $300+ per month. It has grown a lot since I started it, but I don't have the time to focus on it anymore. I won't sell it to just anyone. I invested a lot of time and hard work on this blog to get it to the level it has reached today. So I am looking for someone who is willing to pay for what it's really worth, and grow the website to a whole new level.

Can the website’s revenue be accurately tracked back to the website?

Yes, revenue can be accurately tracked back to the business.

Is the website’s revenue kept separate from other business and personal accounts?

No, the revenue is not kept separate.

If necessary, do you have tax returns available to support your revenue claims?

No, I do not have tax returns available at this time.

Are you willing to provide live revenue verification?

No, I am not willing to provide live revenue verification.

What are the main expenses of the business? 

Main expenses of the business are content writing and hosting. I am publishing 4 articles a month i.e. 1 article per week. As I have full time writers who are working for my other websites as well, cost of 1 article to me is only $5. In case you wish to hire a writer on freelance basis, you can get the articles at $10 per article. I am using shared hosting of Inmotion on which few more websites are hosted, so per month cost of hosting is negligible.

What makes your website better than its competition?

We don't have any direct competitors as no other website is catering to only table decor content. Our website can become an authority website in this niche in near future. We have published more than 130 articles on our website. Our website is ranking for more than 100 keywords on top 5 pages of Google.com. We don't have to put much efforts in ranking new content as we are doing good on page seo and proper inter linking with old articles. So the new content starts ranking within a few weeks of publishing. We started using Amazon affiliate ads few months back and getting good response from it. No extra effort was required for it apart from creating account on Amazon and adding product codes in the articles.

AdSense

Media.net

Content Ad

Are all ad networks transferable to the new owner?

Please provide a brief overview of each related site that you own below

I don't have any other website which is related to this niche.

Yes, I am.

Will you provide 1-3 months of post-sale support & training, in order to ensure that the buyer is able to fully take over the business and its operations?

What are the primary growth opportunities for the business going forward?

Right now we have added amazon native ad codes on around 15 articles out of a total of 130+ articles. So you can add the product codes on all the pages and that will increase chances of earning more through Amazon. We have recently published reviews of the best coffee tables sold on Amazon. So you can write more product reviews like these and earn good commissions from Amazon. You can also create affiliate accounts on ShareASale, ClickBank, Etsy etc and sell products and earn commissions.

Are there any geographical limitations to the potential buyer of the business?

No, there are no geographic limitations.

Noticed that 90% of Facebook are from India. How do you get your sale ?

@susala, We are not getting any sale through Facebook. Whatever sales we are getting on Amazon are through organic search only as we are ranking for many keywords on top pages of Google.

@lhforce, Traffic is going down because we have lost some rankings of our keywords due to constant updates of Google. All traffic which we have right now is mostly organic with minimal seo done. So the website requires good backlinks to be built for a couple of months and I'm sure that the traffic is going to double after that.

@itsd, I'm not sure what explanation you want from me in this matter. I can have n number of websites associated with a single Adsense ID. Is that a problem for you??

The websites which you see on that link were mine and I used the same Adsense for them but as those websites are sold now, they are showing other Adsense Id's as well on top of my ID.

Hope that helps!

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 18:02:55 AEST

@boromake, I have already verified traffic and revenue details with flippa. You can check the verified details in the listing. Live revenue verification isn't possible because I have many more websites in the same Adsense, ContentAd and other accounts. I don't want to disclose my websites to everyone and create unnecessary competition for myself.
