This unique, 33 year old business specializes in providing digital marketing solutions, custom website development, hosting services, and more.  Founded in 1986, this full-service, Google certified digital marketing company provides valuable development and marketing services for businesses of all sizes in multiple verticals. Unlike many marketing and web development firms that rely on one-time development projects, this boutique agency has established a highly valuable base of recurring revenues with approximately 84% of the TTM revenues coming from residual income.  As a result, approximately 84% of annual revenues come in on a largely “automatic” basis and essentially create a “subscription-like” effect, as most customers pay on a regular basis because of the ongoing nature of marketing campaigns. Over the past few years, the company has grown both its top and bottom line by an average of 5%, respectively each year over the past several years. With a solid and scalable infrastructure and turnkey staff in place, this business is poised for substantial growth ahead.

While PPC Management and Web Design represent the majority of its current business, additional revenue comes from SEO services and hosting.  Since inception, this business has continued to grow its comprehensive service offering, which has created a very loyal customer base, having 84% of revenue coming in on a residual basis. Referrals have also been an increasingly large source of customer acquisitions, which clearly illustrates the high level of customer satisfaction. Additionally, the customer retention rate and lifetime value is extremely high, which opens the door to offer additional complementary services. Operating in an evolving and extremely innovative industry, there are constantly new added services and solutions to be offered to customers.  With approximately 300 active clients and $77,000 in monthly recurring revenue, this business represents a high quality acquisition opportunity with an unprecedented thirty two year proven track of reliable cash flow and highly valuable base of recurring client relationships and revenues.

SOLD!

This unique internet-based business is a passive content site that derives 100% of its revenue as an Amazon affiliate via advertising displayed throughout the website. The website provides users with pertinent information on chainsaws and other related content. The “heavy lifting” has already been done as with no marketing whatsoever, the website continues to carry a considerable amount of weight as it relates to organic traffic rankings which has clearly been illustrated with the site seeing receiving 1.56MM pageviews per year. The seller has established nearly 5,000 clean backlinks (not one purchased), does not have a single PBN, both of which have enabled the site to receive a substantial amount of organic traffic and subsequent revenue. The seller started the website in 2014 writing about and reviewing chainsaws and has since branched out into other home and garden tools such as generators, saws, splitters, and more.

Unlike many internet businesses that are subject to the overhead costs associated with selling tangible products, this business maintains an extremely low working capital structure with net profit margins of 80%. As a result, the seller operates this company as a home-based business, combining the benefits of offering an intangible service with the profit margins and mobility of an internet-based platform that can be operated from any computer in the world.

Ultimately, this high-quality acquisition opportunity is the true definition of an internet-based business with hardly any fixed overhead expenses and offers an attractive overall return on investment, especially considering how little time is actually required to operate this business.
