This listing is for an Amazon Associates, Adsense, and advertising business created in October 2011 in the education niche. The site publishes 20-30 posts per month that cover a variety of topics related to education and learning. The majority of the revenue is earned through Amazon Associates links found in content that reviews/recommends toys and games. Other revenue comes in the form of sponsored content and ads.
All of the key money-making content for the site is outsourced. The site also publishes high-quality content from volunteer guest educators/teachers/experts. When it comes to content, there is little intervention or editing required from the seller. A potential buyer looking to grow the business could scale this content creation even more.
The seller sends out a fortnightly newsletter to it's nearly 2,000 subscriber base. With plenty of content available, this could be turned into a daily newsletter. In addition to the email list, the business also has social media accounts on Twitter (5.6K followers), Facebook (2.1K followers), Google+ (~600 followers), and Pinterest (~650 followers).
Please note that the seller transitioned from using Adsense to Monumetric in May 2017. The seller also recently started experimenting with link-building through a white-hat service. Before this, no effort was spent on link-building.
