Staff and Operations:
The owner currently works 15-20 hours per week on the business. During this time they do the following activities: Research content topics, Publish daily newsletter, Buy FB ads, Find and put up email offers. As this is a content site there is no real customer service. The only other staff are not employees but are outsourced content writers.
Reason For Selling:
Seller does not enough time and resources to take it to the next level and would prefer to focus on the other side of his business (supplements). The seller is open to investors and also to staying involved for equity. They are confident this can get to the $100K/month level in a year or so with the right resources and enhanced business model in place. They just don’t have the time or resources to get it to that level on their own.
All cash offers are preferred, but the seller is open to offers that include some amount of seller financing for the right offer and right buyer. Will also consider equity depending on the new owner’s plans.
