Domains transfer (costs $18 USD covered by the seller), site files, and WordPress transfer. All related social media accounts will also be included in the sale (Facebook, G+, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest).
A package of 2 AdSense sites created in May 2014 & 2015 in the travel niche. The content of the sites is about finding great vacation deals and packages. Please note, that there is a mobile site included in the sale that is a subdomain for one of the sites in the package. At the moment, there is minimal work required to maintain the current earnings, but the seller believes that this only reflects 30% of the potential the site has. This is a great opportunity for someone who has a background in SEO work, and could put in some time to increase the rankings of the site to increase revenue. The seller has requested a 16x multiple for pricing this site in hopes of a quicker sale.
Seller worked intensively on the sites from June - August 2014 and with less effort from January - April 2015. Due to family issues and moving houses, seller could not reach the original goals for the sites. Seller believes that because of this, it is performing at roughly 30% of it's potential.
Some very effective keywords could move 2-3 positions on SERPs which could easily double the revenue. Seller has a list of the targeted keywords and their current rankings. Most of the potentially profitable keywords are currently on the 2nd page of Google.
Risks involved, as with any website on Google, would be algorithm updates. Travel industry market fluctuations are also a potential risk in this niche. However, a significant part of the traffic comes form Bing and Yahoo searches, which is much more immune to the algorithm penalties. There is low season for travel related searches during Christmas time (November - December) and huge peak in January.
Work & Skills Required
To keep the sites at their current level, a minimum of 1 blog post needs to be published on the blog and then shared on all social media accounts every week. Seller is doing the off-site SEO work by themselves, but it could be outsourced at a reasonable rate. Seller has offered to maintain the sites on behalf of the new owner for an all-inclusive price of $300 a month. At this rate of $300 a month, the site earnings would be maintained, or could see a steady increase. A rough estimate of the work required would be 2 hours a week, or 8 hours a month. This mainly includes creating content and SEO by multiple channels. Seller mainly uses content marketing and social media in this regard. Seller will include 10 articles to be posted to the blog with the sale of the sites.
Seller Support Includes
Seller can give 30 days of email support and up to 2 hours of Skype/phone support.
Reason for Sale
Seller needs to raise funds for the new projects he is starting. The seller also has bills they need to pay off.
