The target is a 9-year established international publishing house, providing complete manuscript review, editing and printing/publishing services for hardcopy as well as eBook titles alike. This diversified Internet Company offers a complete publishing service lineup to include editing, cover design and book layout for authors around the world via DTC eCommerce websites, and other venues. This agile platform realizes an average $30 ticket price to the end customer, and a $950 average ticket on service products sold to authors. To date, this online powerhouse in the publishing industry has achieved substantial growth with little to no marketing investment in terms of PPC, SEO or Social Media, and for 2017 has posted 131% YOY growth at a 55% margin – in a niche business service industry often thought to still be dominated by the old guard of the hardback era and conglomerates of the mainstream. This business has not just carved out a niche for itself, it has established itself as a segment leader.

This highly automated platform is a unique, turn-key opportunity that can be operated anywhere in the world - all physically-printed products are fulfilled remotely for all markets. This publisher’s modernized platform demands very little time per week to oversee services and fulfillment needs, with no prior knowledge in the publishing world necessary to step in.

This unique business has exceptional reach, featuring over 659 titles in the German, Swiss, and Austrian markets - this platform is ready for global expansion into North American markets thanks to Amazon positioning and multiple storefronts - the US market spent $28 billion in online book sales alone last year, painting an exceptionally bright picture of this company’s future.

On the back end, this publisher features a smartly-crafted corporate tax structure allowing it to operate nearly tax-free worldwide, making it completely portable and an easy acquisition no matter the buyer; a rarity in a space typified by often antiquated business practices, traditions and even antiquated product processes – this brilliant opportunity stands head and shoulders above its competition in every way.
