Project Summary

Update: As of January 14, 2021, this site was sold for $30,100 on the Flippa marketplace. Here is the last update discussing the final numbers, reasoning as to why we are sold, and the remaining upside that the buyer can implement.

In August 2020, we acquired a website in the wellness/lifestyle niche from a private broker marketplace. This is a content website that was owned by a passionate individual that wrote high-quality content.

This website is part of an experiment of a multi-investor and operator business structure. We discussed the structure in detail in this case study update. In summary, two investors (including us) put down the capital to buy the site and the monthly operating costs, and we partner with an operator who manages the day-to-day. We split equity 50% to investors, and 50% to operator.

The website was earning $250 per month in the trailing 6-months when acquired. The website is currently earning $900/month. The site is monetized with Amazon Associates, ShareASale network of brands, and Ezoic display ads.

Below you will find a project dashboard with high-level metrics such as revenues, costs, and traffic that is updated monthly. The detailed case study writeups are summarized in the table below and all posts can be found here.
