This listing is for a SaaS, application, and affiliate business created in January 2018 in the apparel and accessories niche. The business is a Shopify app that solves a problem for a popular online business model. It has a good following on Facebook and YouTube, a high number of active installs, and a strong email list. It requires minimal work from the Seller to maintain thanks to its customer support team.
The app has 8,500 active installs and 59,000 lifetime installs. It earns primarily through the sale of products on the app (90%). The app is free to download but a premium version is available for $9.99 a month that allows people to save on sale prices, which accounts for 5% of the business revenue. The last two earners are affiliate offers and YouTube Adsense which accounts for 3% and 2% of the revenue respectively.
The top three traffic channels are direct (~65%), social (~21%), and organic search -(~9%). This comes mostly from the following countries: the US (~38%), VN (~6%), and the UK (6%).
Facebook ads are used to help acquire new users and the business has a Facebook ad account with 175k in lifetime spend. The included domain gets 1200 plus organic visitors per month and generates around 5-20 organic installs a day, with no advertising.
The app features unique products and has an exclusive contract with several factories. The main factory is in China so shipping is 10-14 days, but some products are from USA/EU partner factories which have a much faster shipping time. Sourcing a new method of shipping might be a growth opportunity for the Buyer to consider.
There are three employees from the Philipines who handle the day to day running of the business - processing sales, liaising with the factory, and 24/6 customer support. They are aware of the sale and would be willing to continue working with a Buyer.
A developer is needed for approximately two to three hours a month to fix any bugs. There is a developer that is partnered with the business who would be willing to continue with a new Buyer. This is providing the workload remains similar and for the same fixed hourly fee of $150. All of this allows the Seller to run the company with very minimal hours of hands-on work a week.
The business has grown a sizeable following on Facebook and YouTube. They have purchased $10k worth of video content and are seeing 30k plus organic views a month and 20 new organic subs per day on YouTube. Their 51k Facebook group is also still growing, gaining around 50 new members a day organically.
There is another app based on the Woocommerce platform that is 90% complete and a personalization widget that is 80% complete. Finishing these two items represents an area of growth that a Buyer can benefit from.
*The business has recently received some bad reviews. This was due to the Chinese new year and coronavirus causing factories to temporarily shutdown.
**The Seller also owns another company in the niche but does not intend to move forward with this project. This domain can be included for an additional price. More information can be provided to active unlockers of this listing.
