Founder/CEO began serving clients in the SEO space in early 2000. Many clients at that time inquired about availability to help them in Yahoo, MSN and AOL. At that time there was a new search engine called “GOOGLE” on the horizon saying they were going to be the main search engine of the future. Once google launched, the business owner and his tech team took a few months to figure out how and why the search engines placed certain sites as #1 and #2 and so on. Once he had a grasp on it, the business owner called his existing 50 clients and offered search engine marketing services free of charge, but quoted a rate should it prove to be successful. 100% of them agreed for them to proceed and 100% of them obtained multiple new front page listings. To date, this business owner has helped over 10,000 businesses, over 9,000 of them use to use pay-per-click for their front page visibility and now they don’t have to. His same tech staff has been in place since 1998!!! Their clients typically see 4-5 times more traffic to their site after they are hired. What’s even better, what the clients were paying in 3-4 months with Google pay per click was the same amount of money they pay our client's business over 12 months. Five times the traffic at 25% of the cost! The business owner offers a money back guarantee for multiple first page listings, no long-term contracts and references upon request. The business owner's core methodology raises the relevance for their client’s sites and that same methodology is used today with 100% success. It will always be the search engines’ goal to provide relevant results, therefore, our SEO services will always be in need and offer a great value to our clients. Differentiators: ***15 year proven track record ***100% successful in achieving multiple 1st page listings ***Published pricing programs on website ***Money-back guaranteee We are representing this incredible business owner because everyone claims to achieve SEO results, but nobody we have ever researched offers the benefits listed above and has achieved such stellar results over the last 15 years. Only the right person with a sales and marketing background will be interviewed by us and put in contact with the CEO/founder of this business will be considered... SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY!!!

Seller's Notes: Executive Summary: Established in 2013, Craft Beer Hound sells gifts and gadgets for beer lovers and beer novices alike. The business aims to enhance the beer drinking experience by helping beer drinkers celebrate, appreciate and share their beer adventures. Craft Beer Hound does this by creating excellent, innovative and stylish products and content. Craft Beer Hound has been featured in Business Insider, The Huffington Post, Men’s Journal, and Mashable, and it has superb product reviews. The business is best known for its highly-popular Cap Collector Product line. As a result of its quality products and content, Craft Beer Hound has an active, loyal social media following and customer base. The sale of Craft Beer Hound includes the business domain (CraftBeerHound.com), all social media accounts (32,000+ followers), all customer information, and a mailing list with 6,500+ addresses. With a quality supplier, excellent products, and a recognizable brand, the new owner will be perfectly positioned to take Craft Beer Hound to new heights. Business Model: Craft Beer Hound generates 100% of its revenue through ecommerce product sales to beer lovers and their gift giving friends/family. Over the trailing twelve months, the business’ gross revenue was approximately $131,000 USD and its net profit was approximately $21,000 USD. This business carries inventory and stores it on-location. However, given the manageable number of SKU’s, inventory could easily be transitioned to a 3rd party fulfillment site without a significant impact to the bottom line. While the current inventory (approx. value- $15,000) is not included in the sale, it is available to the new owner at cost. On average, the owners spend 25 hours per week operating the business. However, this time increases substantially during the holiday season. The owners’ responsibilities include product/content development, marketing, social media management, customer service, and order fulfillment. Growth Opportunities: There are several compelling growth opportunities that the new owner of Craft Beer Hound could pursue. A new owner could expand marketing efforts outside of the United States to further develop the customer base. Introducing a brick and mortar sales channel by selling to breweries and retailers could increase revenue. Additionally, a new owner could increase the product offerings on Amazon to increase sales volume. Optimizing operations is another opportunity the new owner of Craft Beer Hound could pursue. He or she could reduce shipping cost by renegotiating the Fedex contract or finding a more cost effective shipper. The owner could also outsource to a 3rd party fulfillment center to greatly reduce weekly time commitment.

My partner, Gina and I co-founded the business and are its only employees. We have each had major changes happen in our personal lives that have required us to re-prioritize how we use our time. We want to sell the business to someone who can make it a priority and develop it to its full potential. How does the business make money? eCommerce sales Are there different types of revenue streams? Not at the moment, but there is certainly potential to add revenue streams such as on-site advertising. How much time, on average, does it take to operate and maintain the site, per week? Depending on the season (Father’s Day and Christmas are very busy) 25-60 hours a week. Please list all owner’s responsibilities Product development Content development Social media management Sales strategy and execution Marketing, advertising and promotion Operations (primarily purchasing and order fulfillment) Financial management (primarily planning, accounting and cash flow management) Process improvement Does the owner of the site need any specific skillsets in order to successfully maintain and manage the site? Understanding the craft beer market is essential. Retail experience is a big plus. Do you employ any people or use any freelancers? We do not employ anyone other than the 2 co-founders. We occasionally use freelancers (the cost of which has been accounted for on our P&L) but have no standing contracts. How much would it cost to the buyer to outsource all of content production, and will you be able to make the necessary introductions? It’s highly possible that the new owner could recruit college interns to do content creation, which might be a much lower cost than to outsource to an established industry expert. We can certainly make introductions to individuals with a range of expertise in the industry. Have you done any Search Engine Optimization? Yes. As mentioned in the executive summary, we have reached out to many online publishers to secure backlinks to our site. These backlinks will continue to drive traffic into the foreseeable future. Continuation of this effort should be a high priority for the new owner and will likely take 4-6 hours each month. To your knowledge, has the site ever received any search engine penalties (manual or algorithmic)? No Do you or have you ever purchased traffic? Yes. We have advertised on Google Adwords and on Facebook. We can provide specific data about the ROI for advertising on each of these platforms along with guidance about what imagery/copy was most effective. Does the business carry any inventory? If so, approximately how much inventory does the business keep at any given time and is any current inventory included in the price? Yes – we do carry inventory. We currently have about $15,000 of inventory on hand. We build inventory leading up to our major holidays: Father’s Day and Christmas. We have had as much as $50,000 of inventory on hand leading up to Christmas. We do not have current inventory included in the price, but we can sell current inventory at cost to the new owner if they want to acquire it. Where is the business’s inventory kept? It is currently kept in a storage unit in Boulder, Colorado. The lease can be transferred. Is it necessary for the business to keep its inventory in a particular country or a state, in order to retain the current profitability? No How are shipments into and out of the warehouse / storage units managed? Shipments are received and fulfilled by the owners. How many suppliers does the business use and for how long has the business used these suppliers? We have about 5 major suppliers who we have used for the life of the business. Our Cap Collector supplier is located in China and they are very interested in continuing to sell to the new owners. Does the business benefit from any volume pricing arrangements with any of its suppliers? Yes. We receive volume discounts from our Cap Collector supplier as well as from FedEx. We also receive standard volume discounts from our apparel suppliers. Explain your payment terms with your supplier(s)? With our Cap Collector supplier, we pay 30% down, 50% upon shipment and 20% upon receipt/inspection. With most of our other suppliers, we have 30 day terms. Do you have written agreements with said suppliers in place, and are such agreements transferable to the new owner? Yes. The majority (including our Cap Collector supplier agreement) are transferable. What is the average lead time from the day order is placed until customer receives the good? Our Cap Collector lead time is about 6 months. All other product lead times are typically less than one month. Have you changed suppliers in the past, if so, why? No What are the primary growth opportunities that you see for the business going forward? Offering Cap Collector Customization (e.g. clubs, fraternities, states, teams) Brick and mortar sales channels (e.g. breweries, retailers, Bottlecraft) Further reducing shipping costs by re-negotiating FedEx pricing contract Subscription-model Beer Appreciation Club Automating fulfillment and selling products that others drop-ship (e.g. brewery partners) Are there initiatives you have yet to test explore and you think may lead to significant growth?

Seller's Notes: I'd like to present to you, in the most transparent way possible, how I took a small blog earning $40 in 2012 to $6298.55 in March 2016 and has a healthy revenue stream from multiple sources: affiliate marketing, advertising and recurring/subscription fees. Who am I? I'm an advertising professional that worked for the past 7 years at a great start-up from Boston/MA by the name of BuySellAds. While I am not a website flipper per say, I do have a very strong reputation with the web master community and Flippa. Actually, 10 years ago, I sold my first website here (SitePoint). I have a nice super-seller badge given by the fine folks at Flippa. What is TeeHunter? It started as a blog that I have purchased in 2012 and pushed it to become a t-shirt discovery site, because we manually curate a bit over 10,000 t-shirts in our gallery. We have created a community, we are working with respected brands (that pay us!), we do amazing giveaways, generate brand awareness and really we are the t-shirt site. We've built a platform around Wordpress that allows us to pull awesome t-shirts we love in a matter of a few clicks. We work with great t-shirt brands that seek exposure and sales and we run cool campaigns, giveaways and so on.. How it works? Brands pay us a fee to be listed, we create them a landing page and from that point on, anybody with an account at TeeHunter can submit t-shirt designs from their shop to our gallery, really easy. We manually review every t-shirt to assure of the quality. On top of that, some of the brands also have affiliate programs, our complex backend automatically generates affiliate links from regular links. We also do well with content, we write entertaining and trendy blog posts that we then bind with t-shirts. Hey, we did discover there's a t-shirt for every topic out there. Talking about cotton and how soft it feels on the skin might get boring, however if you take a given topic and bind the topic with the t-shirt, you have a winner. That's how we made most of our affiliate sales. Traffic, how do you get the traffic? It's mostly organic, about 80% of it, coming for strong keywords like "Game of thrones t-shirts" for instance. Organic traffic converts best. We have setup our Google Analytics with goals/events in order to track every aspect of the site. We also run giveaways, they are sponsored by the brands, we generate awareness for them, give free t-shirts to folks and generate traffic. Posting on Social Media also generates some traffic. Let's talk about Revenue? Initially our focus was on what we called "brand pages". We sold them to early users at $50/yr and quickly jumped to $99/yr (where most are sitting) and $299/yr. You can find details here: http://teehunter.com/get-brand-page/ While we still get brand page requests regularly, we focused on affiliate marketing more. Currently working with ShareASale because this is where the pool of t-shirt companies seem to hang out. That plus we made a nice SlackBot that alerts us when a sale happens (Hey, thanks, Brian from SaS). Affiliate sales have been doing extremely well for us in the past months due to a coupon code from one of our main partners. For the sake of complete transparency they have stopped the coupon code for the next months and affiliate sales will see a decrease. We're building up for more keywords (like "Suicide Squad t-shirts" or "Game of thrones t-shirts" while waiting for a re-enabling of this coupon code for Q4. Expecting April to end at $3-4k. Advertising has been handled exclusively through BuySellAds.com, we're earning about $500+/mo from ads as well. This has proven to be a stable, consistent income through the years. This is our listing: http://teehunter.com/ads Technical aspects We're currently hosted on AWS. Running on an EC2 instance, an RDS for MySQL (separated), CDN via CloudFront, S3 for storage of media files, auto-scalable, fast. If that didn't bore you already, let's just say that we built something that we can build for you too in order to load the site real fast, which is probably why Google likes us. You don't really need AWS to run the site, it'll work with any hosting out there that can hold 20 people at once. The platform is the popular Wordpress. The admin section is easy to use and well organized, however it's custom made, a complete beast of code in the back-end that will help you automate a lot of the tasks, from building the affiliate URLs to allowing users to submit t-shirts and dealing with SEO, all inside the wp-admin. Once you take over, in a matter of minutes you can switch all the affiliate links to your account. We thought of pretty much everything. As a matter of fact, we have spent a bit over $12,000 in development until present. The theme was coded from scratch, started on a nice drawing board in our office. Costs of running I currently pay about $150-170/mo for hosting+cdn on AWS. Mainly because I cared a lot about speed and scalability. Would hold on any server <$100 should you want to reduce the costs. I pay about $400 for the content team to write (~$20/article). You could probably lower the cost but I wouldn't recommend, I like the creativeness of the existing team. We have used this app in the past months called Gleam.io for giveaways ($39/mo). We also spend <$200/mo in Facebook ads for giveaways or promos we want to try out. Experimenting a bit, will pass the know-how to the new owner.

Strong points: - #1 in the t-shirt blog sphere - Great amount of content, strong SEO - Links from Entrepreneur.com, Inquisitr.com - Strong & Healthy distributed revenue (Affiliate/Advertising/Recurring) - Brands recognize our authority in the field and enjoy working with us - State of the art back-end, automation - Existing content team willing to continue the great work under new ownership - You're really going to own the #1 t-shirt "blog" out there. Simple as that. Weak points: - We spent and focused too much of our efforts into development to build something "perfect" while lacking Marketing. That's the honest truth, if I were to do things different, I'd probably MVP ideas more often and spend more money for marketing. - Never spent a significant amount of money on ads - Social Media should be more consistent to attract more sales/traffic - We never engaged into Email Marketing besides promoting our internal giveaways - SEO on-page, we never went aggressive, actually just recently I was made aware that we're a bit too soft on things. See: RedBubble and their aggressive winning SEO. Why selling? I'm going to start a consultancy agency in a completely different field, AWS/Cloud. I'd love to see the site in the hands of someone that loves the niche and will take this further. Someone that knows SEO, someone that knows how to generate more traffic is going to be the right buyer. The majority of listings for new/starter sites usually start with "Huge potential", I truly hope this goes into the hands of someone that actually realizes the potential of TeeHunter and hey it would be great if I can still have my photo in the about us section under "Worthy contributors". Thank you, addressing FAQ below. FAQ Anticipating the questions and also updating the listing with answers here. How much of the monthly revenue is Affiliate, Ads and Subscriptions? ~ 65% affiliate sales, 15% ads, 20% brands. It really depends on how many brands we sell in a given month, generally it's 65% affiliate sales, 15% ads, 20% brands and sponsored articles. Do you think the direction should be pursuing more brands or focusing on affiliate sales? I would stick with the existing ones while letting new ones come naturally/inbound. I strongly believe the future is in building a bigger community of designers that are interested in uploading their art on TeeHunter as a means of extra-exposure to generate sales. It's a win/win/win for teehunter, brands and the artist. How much time do you spend on it? 15 mins/day - Approval of new t-shirts 30 mins/day - Replying back to sales inquiries we receive, planning things. 30 mins/day - Editing the articles that go live and coordinating with the folks that write content Any amount of time spent extra is for business development. How will I generate a bigger income from affiliate sales? The future is definitely the content ranking on Google and the aggregated hashtags that we've been building. We rank well for game of thrones, suicide squad, breaking bad, etc. There are so many more topics to rank for. This is going to be a great deal for someone that knows his marketing. What do you except the revenue to be in March for affiliate sales? Given that the coupon code we had expired until Q4, we're looking at $3k for March, really looking forward to seeing how the upcoming TV Shows like GOT or Silicon Valley turn out. What should we except as the "best" months for sales? Definitely during Black Friday and Christmas. Why is the traffic lower in the past months? It's not, it's been growing actually. We have updated the site with our version 4 in September 2015 and we were running infinite scroll which in the end made the impressions/pageview count lower. We switched back to normal scrolling. How do the brands pay you the recurring fee? Paypal. Can you transfer the property over to our BuySellAds.com account? Yes. Do you get DMCA Takedowns / Licensing issues? We got 2 requests in 4 years which we deflected to the site that actually sold the merchandise. This resulted in the site taking it off and us doing it subsequently since we only list fresh t-shirts. Can I have access to Google Analytics? Yes but only after you have expressed interest by bidding. Alternatively great screenshots can be posted here upon request.

We are seeking a buyer who has the drive to succeed, a salesperson's heart, and looking for a ready-to-go-brand. Meaning, we have established trademarked logos, award winning-packaging, website, social media presence, trusted suppliers, with an easy fulfillment model - the heavy lifting is done! If you're looking for a great product; we have it! If you have the dream of running your own business, without the time-consuming and costly hassles that are inherent to all start-ups, then this is your opportunity! Let us introduce you to Humble Seed. Humble Seed was launched Earth Day, 2010 and is owned by us- Jim and Kristen Mitchell, a husband and wife team. A seed business was a natural fit for our interests and knowledge base. Jim works within the commodity industry as a trader and Kristen has a master-level education in science and works as a medical sales representative. Humble Seed specializes in premium garden seed kits that are packaged and themed for convenience and ease. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality heirloom, non-GMO, non-hybrid, and organic seed varieties to those who choose to start from seed. "Exseeding expectations" is an affirmation we take seriously, and we believe that the most rewarding gardening experiences begin with seed. Why start a seed business? Vegetable gardening has been on the rise over the past five years and that positive trend has continued through 2014. The initial interest was launched several years ago with the poor economy. People made the decision to become self-reliant in the face of higher food costs and smaller paychecks. This interest in gardening only continues to grow with people’s desire to know where their food comes and being more self-sufficient thanks to the rise in the DIY and homesteader attitude. Backyard vegetable gardens, edible landscapes and community gardens will continue their current growth trends. According to The Garden Writers Association, more people are indeed growing their own food. Their Garden Trends 2014 Report states, among the 78 million gardening households that have a lawn, garden or grow plants in containers, more than half (54%) grew vegetables this year. Our market researched demonstrated that consumers new to gardening were often overwhelmed in choosing what to plant – we wanted to simply that process by offering seed kits vs. individual pack of seeds. We also wanted to make seed fun and engaging. This was achieved by launching an expandable product line that included eye-catching graphics, clever names and superior packaging. All of Humble Seed is packed within resealable triple-layer Mylar envelopes that ensure seed freshness beyond that of any paper pack. Realizing that a seed business was at risk of seasonality, we created strategic products that would help to ensure sales year-round. The Producer is a seed bank that contains 26 varieties of seeds (26,000 seed ct). This kit is extremely popular with the pepper community. This kit is not only top-seller with our trade show audiences; we sell it continually though the website to customers nationwide. In addition, our gift basket line sells very nicely though the holiday season. Why are we selling? We are two people with limited time and resources. We just don't have the ability to expand on our own. We are so proud of the brand we have created and know that Humble Seed has the potential to do great things in the right hands. Due to an overwhelming response, we will reply to emails expressing true interest in Humble Seed. Please submit an inquiry stating your specific your capabilities in expanding the brand (expertise, market knowledge, relationships). We are exploring licensing avenues, royalty options, and partnerships to full buyout. We will set up conference calls to discuss. If you are looking to inherit an established income stream that requires a little customer service, this opportunity is not for you. This is a brand ready to explode in the right marke

Seller's Notes: History: This is a niche e-commerce retailer and marketplace specializing in handmade, high-quality, unique designer goods. Founded in 2007, this internet-based business pioneered the handmade designer goods space and recently underwent a major redesign and platform upgrade, increasing time on site by 45%. The site transitioned to the Shopify e-commerce platform in October 2015, and we built a unique and robust custom application to create the marketplace functionality with Shopify. Current owner purchased from founder in 2013. In 2015, owner focused on migration to Shopify and did little marketing. How It Works: This is a marketplace that uses all third-party sellers, that sell and fulfill the products. No inventory is held by Supermarket. Sellers apply to be a designer/seller on Supermarket. Once approved they manage their listings, orders, and fulfillment. All orders go through Supermarket's Shopify account, order notifications are routed to Sellers, and then Sellers ship an order, they are automatically paid out (less commission) through PayPal or Dwolla. Monetization: Currently, commissions are charged to sellers on sales. Commission rate is 12-15%. The site/platform is under-monetized. Current owner has done little marketing over the past year. Growth: Excellent content ready to use: strong product images, diverse product catalog, seller profiles, etc. For the current business model, Revenue could be increased with: -Merchandise products w/ collections & features through Shopify -Send regular email campaigns -Update/use Pinterest more (strong social traffic source) -Engage sellers to add/update products & write blog posts -Review and approve new sellers -Consider paid ads - Pinterest/Facebook/Twitter/Adwords Expand Business Model -Move to subscription model - see details below -Add private label, branded products (partner with a designer) -Add sellers at a wholesale/retail cost structure Included Assets & Accounts: Product Catalog: 15,000+ products published (35,000+ total) Sellers: 1,500+ system, 900+ active, 400+ seller application backlog, 260+ sign in last 7 months Email list: 4,500+ subscribers Facebook: 6,000+ followers Twitter: 3,734 followers Pinterest: 4,600+ pins / 813 followers Blog articles: 1,200+ posts Domain: www.supermarkethq.com Freshdesk: Support ticketing & Knowledge Base Business Details: Annual sales peaked in 2010 fell to $33k last year due to a developing industry trend questioning the sustainability of the commission-based business model. I’m confident that the answer to this industry shift is either: 1) use different monetization model. E.g. Move the seller customer base to a subscription model (a straightforward shift that has proven successful for similar companies) OR 2) find a strategic partner to best utilize the existing buyer, seller, ecommerce and/or brand assets. While I'm confident in the clear path forward of shifting to a subscription model, I’m looking to sell the business for personal reasons — I had my first child last year and I have new family obligations. I'll be happy to support new owners with a high level plan for this transition (financial implications and opportunities of this new model are outlined below). Subscription Model Potential: Rather than charge sellers a commission for each sale, offer a monthly subscription in which sellers can list and sell as many products as they want. We conservatively estimate 40% of sellers would sign up for the monthly subscription. That is over 750 sellers, from a total of almost 2,000 sellers (existing database + seller request backlog). An existing, comparable site offers a seller subscription for $20, currently discounted to $12.95. Note, Supermarket is a better looking site with higher quality merchandise. Based on 750+ sellers, and a monthly subscription price between $10 to $20, this would generate a monthly cash flow of $7,600 to $15,000 or $92,000 to $184,000, per year. This assumes no growth, and is only working with the existing seller base. This business has less overhead than the typical drop ship model — Supermarket sellers handle questions and customer service, orders, inventory management, etc. LINK to 13 Months Financials Monthly Time Requirement Currently, minimal 1-2 hours/week. Seller: Erik Silver, Web Developer, United States Will provide up 60 days post-sale support & training Willing to sign non-compete agreement Reason For Selling: As mentioned above, I have new family obligations and I can't give the business the attention it deserves. Editor's Comments: Strengths: -Established business with over 100+ artisanal suppliers -No Inventory (fully drop-shipped) -Established Strategic Relationships -Strong brand recognition, featured in GQ, Food Network, InStyle Magazine, Lucky Magazine -Shopify business. Beautiful custom theme & custom developed marketplace software (web app) Weaknesses: -Sales dropped in 2015 making it unprofitable. (See comments) -Popular designers get the most sales Opportunities: -Expansion into subscription box would elevate the brand and the revenues with a diversified and renewable revenue source -Introduction of wholesalers into the business could increase volume and product diversification -Selling below replacement value (cost to build & acquire traffic/user base) -Leverage large seller base for more products and content (e.g. blog posts) -Better merchandise and showcase products & collections

Editor's Comments: Strengths: -Ranking top 20 in Google USA for keywords such as: “best salaries”“top 10 countries” and “things to invest in”.
