Business Description

Relocatable, Great Margins, Simple to Run, Minimal Owner Involvement

Founded in 2004, the company is one of the largest providers of movie film transfers in the country. The business is not complicated, and customers simply complete an order form and ship their film to the company. The company then performs its service faster than anyone else in this industry, and ships the original media and the new media back to the customer. Revenues and cash flow have increased in each of the last 3 years. Business can be operated by a single, trained employee for 11 months out of the year, with the addition of either the owner or a part time employee from mid-November through mid-December. Owner works only two days per week for just a few hours for the remainder of the year. Location is not important and can be relocated anywhere in the country, and could be run from home.

The company has made substantial investments in search engine optimization (SEO) in the past which has resulted in the company ranking on the first page of Google and Yahoo for many of the most important search terms in this industry. Because of this, the company generates far more traffic from organic searches than paid searches. This gives the company a tremendous advantage over competitors who cannot match the company's 15 years in business, or its SEO investments.

In early 2018, the company experimented with changes to advertising and pricing related to a brand new website design and structure. The website redesign was published in March of 2018. There were two major changes resulting from the experimentation with pricing and advertising. First, the company reduced prices for most reel sizes. And second, it reduced advertising expense going forward. These changes have resulted in a sizable increase in the volume of orders processed, and a more moderate increases in total revenues. The increased revenues and decreased advertising expense have grown the company's cash flow by about 40% in 2018 compared to 2017.

Despite the improvements made in 2018, there are several areas in which improvements can be made and revenue and profits increased.

Assets include website, all accounts related to advertising and marketing, various types of equipment. Business does not need a huge investment in assets, and nearly all are easily and inexpensively replaced. The biggest asset of the business is the domain name and website, which rank highly in search engine results and generate traffic organically.
There are many competitors in this industry, some of which are much better capitalized than the company. A few have invested heavily in traditional advertising, especially in the last three years. The company believes this is positive for two reasons: first, it is an indication of the size of the market, and that there are still millions of potential customers in the United States. Second, because of their mass advertising efforts, there are many more customers who know this service is available and are actively searching for it online.
Growth & Expansion:
There are four potential avenues to increase revenues and profits. These are in the areas of: 1) emphasizing certain services we perform but have never marketed 2) adding an option for a higher level of service/quality on existing business 3) hiring a third party expert to perform SEO services, which have not been done in three years 4) consider email marketing and traditional advertising which is apparently effective for competitors.
Support & Training:
Negotiable. Owner wants to make sure buyer is properly trained and prepared to take over operations and will invest whatever time is necessary to accomplish that.
Reason for Selling:
Key employee is ready to retire.
