This listing is for an Amazon Associates and affiliate business created in September 2015 in the outdoors niche. The Wordpress site features reviews and guides relating to survival, hunting, and other outdoor activities. This growing business has a strong history of earnings, consistent traffic, with a good split across articles, and requires minimal work from the Seller.
The primary source of traffic is organic from Google. Around 80% of the revenue comes from Amazon Associates, with the rest coming from affiliate deals, and a small amount coming from Sponsored Posts. The Seller is regularly approached regarding Sponsored Posts and hasn't yet sought them out or advertised. This is an opportunity for the Buyer to explore further. The Seller outsources content from time to time when they want to target new keywords. The Seller has also outsourced some outreach campaigns. These involve infographics, guest posting, expert roundups, top lists, and more.
