Established eCommerce Business For Sale - $1K Net Profit Per Month - GOLF Niche
 
Hey all,

We recently put up an eCommerce/dropship hybrid store that sells primarily female golf accessories on Flippa for a no reserve auction. It nets (3 months average) $1K every month and gets most of its traffic from email blasts.

It's on Flippa with less than 8 hours left. We put it up for $1 with NO Reserve and is currently sitting at only 3.8 X Monthly Net Profit.

Here’s the listing

Since it’s a consistently profitable store, you’ll probably want to add this to your watch list and get in on the action either now or close to the auction’s end.

Here are the site highlights:
  • Date site created: January 2007
  • Monthly Average Revenue: $7,623.46
  • Monthly Average Expenses: $4,018.07/mo. COGS + $2,598/mo. for advertising, shipping, etc.
  • Monthly Average Net Profit: $1,007.39
  • Monetization methods: Product Sales
  • Unique visitors: 2,554 last 30 days | 5,387 last 90 days
  • Search Engine traffic: 562 (Apr. 28 – May 28)
  • 22K member email list with open rate of 10-15%

How could you grow the business?

Although the website has consistent search traffic, there are a few things you can improve on if you’d like to be more hands on:

Social media – Building a stronger social media strategy to further grow the email list would be a great place to focus on. The primary traffic source is from email blasts so it seems like growing the email list should be top priority.

List more vendors/products – More products and vendors could allow for more product sales as well as increases in search engine traffic from the additional content.

Increase frequency of email blasts – Since email is this business’ #1 traffic source, it makes sense to heighten the volume of emails sent out per week. You can get creative and start offering more discounts through these emails, special promotions of featured items, etc.

Things You Should Know:

Half of the product orders are dropshipped while the other half is shipped out of their inventory. The buyer could convert this business into a 100% dropship business if desired.

January and February are the worst months for sales, which is why numbers seem to be declining. Plus seller has not put the time into marketing and product selection so no new products have been added recently.

Most profitable time of year is from the middle of April to the end of August. Great potential for sales around the golf major championships (Masters, US Open, British Open and PGA Championship) with email blasts. Also, holiday sales could be much improved.

You will most likely need a copy of Quickbooks Enterprise. The software the seller uses to import orders into Quickbooks is approximately $300.

Bonuses:

The amount of support from the site seller is dependent on the price paid for the business through auction:
  • Under $8k: 0 hours
  • $8k-14k: 6 hours
  • 14k-20k: 10 hours
  • 20k+: 20 hours

Hours are split between email and phone call/skype. More hours can be bought for $125/hour.

The seller has $6K (wholesale) in stock. He is willing to sell it to the new owner. The seller would like to negotiate this during the sale separately.

You will get all of the inventory the seller has available if you buy this business at the Buy It Now price.

Post Sale Process:

The seller will be able to handle all migrations for you.
