RV Web Directory – Home-Based, 97% Net Profit Margin

Details
Asking Price:$350,000
Yearly Revenue:$121,240
Yearly Income:$118,228

This unique home-based business is a passive online recreational vehicle web directory that derives 100% of its revenue from banner ads displayed throughout the website. This is a fifteen year-old website where users are able to find reputable dealers to purchase or rent RV’s, service, repair, parts and supplies. While the company doesn’t actually sell RV’s, they maintain an extensive database of RV dealers in many US states and Canadian Provinces. Their wide selection across the US makes this website an RV primary resource. The “heavy lifting” has already been done as it took many years to get to the top of Google organically for many of the industry’s valuable keywords.  The website, which began in 2005, connects users directly with RV dealers of their choice so that they can find the resources they need quickly and conveniently.

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 above 97%. 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. The business essentially runs on autopilot with the owner ONLY spending 15 hours per week to maintain daily operations. 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 required to operate this business. In addition, there is still tremendous opportunity for growth by expanding content and developing additional revenue streams.
