Business Description

Content is driven all by the users. They upload and share files about cars, both old and new

How does your business make money?

Strictly just from Google AdSense

Why should someone buy this business?

Passive income.
The entire website runs on autopilot (if you want it to). Upkeep is minimal and it ranks high in search engines for many makes and models. This site can be maintained as it is, or pivoted in a new direction.

How can the future owner improve this business?

The upload feature needs work. It was a custom plugin I created when I was new to programming. You can keep it as is and everything is fine but if you want to clean house I would just buy a premium upload plugin by a professional developer.
Also, the site needs to be cleaned up. Users tend to upload things not related to cars at all. I haven't logged into the backend in almost 2 years so there is a decent amount of bad files to remove.
I have also never run ads for this site.
The current site only has AdSense but I am willing to bet there are more income opportunities in affiliate marketing.

Why are you selling this business?

The website generates reliable revenue each month but I need a large cash flow soon to keep my main business afloat. I am working on a patent and the prototyping process has become an unbelievable burden on my wallet.
