About the business
Tell us a little about yourself. What’s your background? How did you start the business?
I have been in the marketing/and advertising business for more than 10 years now. What I specialize in is building startup businesses and selling them to investors. We started in early May 2021 during Covid and have grossed well over 60K in 7 months.
As an eCommerce business, where are your products made?
We are a cleaning business that operates currently in 4 cities.
What can you tell us about your Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) and Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC)
We currently spend 1K/month and that generates about 10k+ in gross.
How have you marketed the product and where are your customers originating from?
We market our business through various advertising channels such as Facebook, Instagram, and google. Calls come from our advertising and the leads turn into orders/sales.
Is the asset on your listing owner-operated, how much time does it take to run the business, who else is needed on the team, and what is automated?
I run everything myself and it takes between 2 to 3 hours max a day but can be a lot more if you want to make more money. As mentioned previously I spend most of my time working on marketing/and advertising for clients so I try to minimize my time answering calls/managing but that is by choice. If I wanted to be busy the entire day I definitely could – The time is mostly spent answering calls and drafting invoices for clients as well as distributing schedules to our workers.
What does someone need to do to continue operating the business in its current form?
All they would need is a laptop, a cellphone, and the internet. They can operate the business from anywhere in the world.
Growing the business
Can you list a few opportunities for a potential new owner to continue growing the business?
We haven’t tapped into a lot of niches, the cleaning industry has no limit especially in the commercial world you can cold call companies and 6 figures contracts by simply cleaning a building’s office or an HOA high rise condo, they are absolutely no limits. We have not even built an app everything is done via the website. The opportunities to scale and grow are endless.
What has been the evolution of this asset since its launch?
We have made over 60K since we launched. Our first month when we officially launched we generated 10K and that was with only 2 workers and minimal advertising.
How does this business make money? What are the current revenue streams?
Our clients call us to book cleanings for their homes, apartments, businesses (restaurants, offices, etc) and that is how orders/and sales are generated.
What marketing channels are most profitable for the business?
We find Facebook and Google advertising to be the most profitable for our business.
How does the business currently acquire customers and what is your breakdown for marketing costs?
We get leads through advertisements on social media. We spend no more than 1K but again that is based on the demand I was personally willing to accept. If you wanted to be extremely busy you could by spending anywhere between 1 to 5K but you would be on the phone all day getting calls/and orders.
How big is your current team? How many people does it take to run this business?
Besides myself I only have a total of 4 workers, again that was by choice as my time is mostly spent doing marketing for clients as well as building/and selling businesses I was not looking to spend more than 2 or 3 hours on this business.
What’s the reason for selling your business on Flippa?
We are a marketing agency that builds online businesses and sell them to investors looking to buy and grow their digital business portfolios.
