Business Story

Why this business was started

I actually bought the site back in July of 2018. It was meant to be a hobby and it ended up taking off. Politics are big business, and trump fans are particularly passionate which made them easy to market to. I figured I would put in some elbow grease and see what it could do and it has surpassed expectations. I invested $5000 right away in promoting some contests and those paid off, the site has OVER 50,000 subscribers via email.

The reason of selling this business

I'm selling this site and another one because I recently accepted a full time job offer. The site requires minimal work and has been easy to run. However, I need to focus on the new job and still have time for my family. That means pairing down all the peripheral activities. So, looking for a good home for the site. This site will be a total money maker leading up to the next elections, and then its success will just explode!

Posting on social, setting up twice weekly emails, and placing orders.

This business was founded: over 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would continue to add products and invest in social media marketing. Almost no social media work is currently being done. I've been too busy, and have been relying on email only. I would also invest in some SEO. This site is going to do HUGE numbers during the election season next year.

    Skills to have

    Really this business is pretty simple to run. A knowledge of social media would really benefit you, but isn't necessary. Email marketing could be moved to an Amazon SES based service to save a couple hundred dollars a month.

    Father and husband, I purchased this site to bring in some spare income. However, with my new job I can't hang on to the site in addition to work and family. It's been a good opportunity to earn some side cash, but I just don't have the time to keep it up!
