Facts and Figures
The website has evolved over 18 1/2 years and is currently arranged as a blog with sponsored advertising. It also has betting tools available which include various embedded calculators and a "white label" odds comparison site.These are the main functions that keep clients returning to the site. In the past it has also had full bookmaker/sportsbook reviews and been a tipping site any of which could be easily re-instated.
How does your business make money?
The business makes money from affiliate deals with bookmakers/sportsbooks, selling advertising space and sponsored blog posts. These are also sold via Twitter links to an established base of 4700 followers which has been grown ergonomically over 10 years.
Why should someone buy this business?
The business currently makes a passive profit from a limited number of affiliate deals and sponsored posts. With the relaxation of gambling laws in the US currently ongoing this could be substantially increased by someone with more technical knowledge and greater marketing capabilities. The gambling/betting industry is growing worldwide year on year with most activity being based online.
Having been established for 18 1/2 years the business has a solid and loyal following and has had 60,000 unique users over the past 3 years.
If the buyer is interested then I could still write content for the site, though there are many agencies waiting to pay money to have sponsored posts published
