Before reading any of the following information, keep in mind that there are only 15.600 hostels worldwide! And only 2.050 hostels are located in countries, where English is the main language.
→ So even if the following numbers might sound low, they’re actually really amazing in my opinion.
MOST IMPORTANT DATA:
- Start of the website: 08/2019
- Built with WordPress
- Monthly traffic: 2200 (Ø from the last 3 months: 21/02- 21/05) → Super consistent over the years!
- ~990 organic backlinks (I did not do any active link building)
- Published articles: 53 (all from 08/2019 – 01/2020) – average word count: 3700 words – all written by me personally
- Email list: 646 active subscribers (as of 21/05/2021) – Open rate: 32-46% (international average is 20%) → Given the total number of hostel owners, this is in my opinion the most valuable aspect of the deal
TOTAL = Ø 506 USD PER MONTH
- Cloudbeds PMS Affiliate: 67 USD per month (800 € in 2020 and 1400 € since start – though some are still pending)
- Amazon Affiliate: 15.8 USD per month (Ø from the last 3 months: 21/02- 21/05)
- Ezoic Ads: 7.8 USD per month (fluctuates between 7-8 USD per month)
- Other Affiliate Programs: ~7.5 USD per month (from Bluehost, Canva, Freelancer.com and Godaddy.com) – fluctuates heavily
- Consultations: ~408 USD per month (4900 USD in 2020 – even though I NEVER offered consultations online – people begged me for it^^)
SPECIALS THAT ARE INCLUDED:
- Website incl. Domain
- Twitter Account
- Pinterest Account
- 3 x Ebooks that I used as a Freebie for building my email list
- All the support from me that you need to succeed with this website!
WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED:
- My private information: About page + all personal pictures of me + all blog comments (I’ll delete this before the transfer)
FOR WHOM THIS WEBSITE MIGHT BE PERFECT:
- Companies that offer solutions for hostels (e.g. software, beds, etc.) → The website can be an extremely effective tool for marketing your product.
- Consultants for accommodation businesses (I get maaaany emails about that – even before Covid-19)
- Online marketers who’re looking for a highly profitable niche & passive income.
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES I SEE FOR THIS WEBSITE:
- Promoting your own product
- Building more links
- Create an info product to sell (e.g. “How to start a hostel”)
- Cloudbeds Affiliate Income (total)
- Amazon Affiliate Income (last 3 months)
- Ezoic Ads Income
- Organic Backlinks
REASONS FOR SELLING:
- I am too busy creating my German website about dogs 🙂
FIXED PRICE = 5880 USD
- 5880 USD = Monthly Income without consultations (98 USD) x factor of 60
- I won’t negotiate the price. The email list in this B2B space alone is in my opinion more worth than the website itself.
- Contact me at: email@example.com
(This website is listed on many other websites for sale. First come, first served.)
HOW DOES THE TRANSFER WORK?
No worries, I’ve safely sold websites before. The process is pretty straight forward:
- 1) I create an offer on Escrow.com – This is a platform that makes sure that you as a buyer and I as a seller are both safe. It’ll come at a cost though that we can share 50/50.
- 2) After the setup, you’re going to receive an email from Escrow.com to transfer your money to the platform.
- 3) In the meantime, I’ll create the sale contract which we both sign and the invoice.
- 4) Once the money is on Escrow.com and the contract is signed, I’ll transfer to you all necessary files: All logins, installer version, authcode for domain, logo, etc.
- 5) You’ll have to check if everything is okay. If something is wrong or missing, we can fix it.
- 6) If everything is okay, you’ll have to give the money free on Escrow.com so that I receive it.
- 7) Done. You have a new website and I got a paycheck – win / win 🙂
- 8) After the sale you’ll have to transfer the domain with the authcode to your own hosting account. Your webhost can help you with that.
In case you want to proceed, I’ll need the following data from you
- Your full name
- Your personal mail address
- Business Name
- Address of your business
- Tax number / VAT of your business
Typical transfer-time = 2-3 days
