Listing Details

This listing is for an Amazon KDP, Amazon Associates, and display advertising business created in November 2015 in the Romance niche. The included Amazon KDP account features one active pen name, 30 books, and two top-selling box sets in Amazon's top 100 for romance novels. Revenue is nicely diversified across multiple monetizations and minimal effort is required to maintain the business.

This business primarily generates revenue from Amazon KDP (90.7%), Amazon Associates (8%), and Newormedia display advertising (1.3%) sources. The top three traffic channels for the website include organic search (88.06%), direct (6.27%), and social media (4.93%) signals. The top three countries in terms of generating the most traffic for the site include the US (42.42%), India (10.34%), and Great Britain (7.57%) marketplaces respectively.

There are no employees currently on the payroll as the Seller has outsourced a majority of the work to freelance VAs. These VAs include 1-2 ghostwriters and an editor based in the US, and an email list manager. The Seller is confident these VAs will continue with the business should the Buyer choose.

The Seller has focused on publishing one new book per month. Top-selling books are continually being made since most revenue comes from box-sets. The included 12-book box sets have been in the top 100 in romance on Amazon. Box sets make up around 85% of the KDP revenue since all books are turned into box sets. Publishing books twice a month serves as a growth opportunity for a Buyer to explore further.

The included website receives visitors who are interested in the romance niche. They are monetized with display ads and affiliate links and then directed to the book catalog. The Seller currently uses Facebook advertising to help generate traffic to the site and into the email marketing funnel. The Amazon KDP account has received excellent reviews on products, with all but one having above 4 stars.

This business includes two email lists, one with 13,700 contacts, and another with 4,700 contacts stored in Aweber. Emails are sent daily through an automated sequence. When traffic signs up, they are sent sequenced emails for 14 days before being released into the main list where author swaps are sent. With plenty of growth opportunities for a new owner to consider, more information will be provided to active Buyers.
