Included in the sale of this business are the domain, site content/files, Google Analytics account, email list, ShareASale affiliate account, and Impact Radius affiliate account.
This listing is for an Amazon Associates and affiliate business created in January 2010 in the health & supplements niche. Site content covers staying healthy and promotes products that thought leaders in the industry recommend. The majority of the income is earned via Amazon Associates links for US, CA, and UK marketplaces. However, the business also recently started earning from other affiliate programs outside of Amazon.
The seller was responsible for all of the content creation for the site and added new content on a monthly basis. Depending on the complexity of the posts, the seller could spend about 12-24 hours per month researching and writing. This is something that the new owner could potentially outsource if they were to continue adding content to the site.
While there are no social media profiles associated with the business, there is a small email list built from site visitors. The list is not currently being monetized and has about 160 subscribers on it.
Expanding content into niche areas the blog has found success in
Analyzing what products site visitors are buying via Amazon Associates links and creating new product-specific content
Capitalizing on organic search trends with further content
Risks for the business include:
Since the blog was built using 100% white hat methods and no links have been built, the site requires further good quality content to keep growing the website.
The blog posts contain actionable content which could go out of date. It would be important for the buyer to keep their ear to the ground for new information, and update the blog posts if the info changes. The risk with not updating the content is that it may lose rank.
The website makes 99% of the profit from the Amazon Associates program. Therefore, it is important to conform to their T&Cs and not get banned. For example, don't send Amazon Affiliate links in emails, because whilst people get away with it, its against their T&Cs.
Work & Skills Required
No work is required in its current state. Up until this point the seller has done research on thought leaders and created blog posts (around 1 per month) on content, complete with affiliate links related to products discussed.
Seller Support Includes
The seller is willing to offer 30 days of email support and 2 Skype calls.
Reason for Sale
The seller is looking to fund future business endeavors.
