Executive Summary

This prominent vBulletin based gaming community forum is the foremost authority in online multiplayer games. Boasting a steady average of 3.5 million+ pageviews and 1.2 million+ sessions per month, the website is the chief destination for the massive communities that play some of the largest titles out there like World of Warcraft, Pokémon GO, Overwatch, and Diablo 3.

Leveraging 26k backlinks, 120k keywords, 5.5k of which are in the top 10, and 400+ in position #1 for these popular game titles and great community engagement, this business is the leader in the space.

Monetized by subscription based private access and virtual currency for trade forums, the reliable popularity of the established big name games and the community that plays them has garnered very steady, reliable income for the current owner. Additionally, opportunistic capitalization of new breakout hits like Pokémon GO have seen great surges in revenue historically.

Business Model

The owner has built, grown, and operated the business for the past 9 years and believes now it’s the opportune time to exit and pursue other ventures as the business is healthy, future proofed, and in a great place for any serious buyer to be pleased with and continue its success.

Growth Opportunities

– Grow traffic by capitalizing on future breakout hits like last year’s Pokémon GO craze

– Pursue additional advertising pathways like brand ambassadors, influencers, contests, etc.

– Develop new monetization streams; add a game shop or marketplace, affiliate relationships etc.

– Better monetize existing traffic and boost engagement with performance and contribution based incentives/rewards
