Business Story

Why this business was started

I bought this business a couple of months ago then got a promotion at work. I bought it because I know that if you just clean up a lot of collections/pages and increase the articles this site could rank well organically, resulting in great cash flow.

This business was making a few thousand dollars at the end of 2018 and did $51k in revenue in six months when running $50 a day on google ads. There is a lot of google ads data with over $8,000 spent. If you are good at google ads, this would be a great site for you.

I will send you any info you need.

The reason of selling this business

I'm just not interested in this site and don't have the time to answer calls or add more products. This site is valued at over $23k by shopify but I'm selling for less than half.

What's involved in running this business

Sending orders to suppliers, doing SEO and maintaining the google ads. I haven't had the phone turned on but I'd recommend doing that. The old owner of this site said he was receiving 3-5 calls a day when he was selling multiple thousand a month.

If you bought this I'd recommend adding some new products that are in the mobility niche that have selling prices of $1k plus. I will send you the competitor sites and the products I'm talking about. The market is huge and fairly light on competition. Over 10 million people in the US have mobility issues.

On a day to day basis there is not much to do unless a sale is generated. The site gets roughly 300-400 organic visits a month free due to past SEO work. If you were to do more backlinking and generate constant blog content you could drive a lot more organic traffic.

Right now I am not doing any customer retention. There is a small email list that will be included but no email marketing has been done.

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

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I think one of the main ways to increase sales would be to add a customer service VA. This is an expensive product targeted to older individuals and I think they probably call the number and I don't have it connected. The older owner of this site said he was receiving around 3-5 calls a day when this site was selling products.

    I've only ever run google shopping ads, but I wasn't good at them. Doing this would definitely help.

    Continuing to do SEO would also help. I've done a good amount of guest posting and the site is now getting 400+ monthly visitors a month with no advertising. In the past 3 months the website has had 51K impressions on google search with no ad spend. If you could improve the CTR to 5% you would greatly improve traffic.

    I haven't done anything on social media but the business has a facebook, twitter and pinterest account with a few thousand followers.

    Skills to have

    Google ads and web design. There is a lot of potential to add more products to this site and generate way more revenue. My skills in ads and marketing are very crude, so if you are good at this you could do much better than me.

    I really think just having the time to set up the phone line and answer customer calls would lead to 5 plus sales a month with no advertising.
