Business Description

We create highly powered websites to help job seekers get noticed by their next hiring manager.

How does your business make money?

We make money from selling resume writing services. In addition to that, we've also made money on affiliate services and LinkedIn writing services, career coaching, interview training, public speaking and more ....

Why should someone buy this business?

This website is PERFECT for a new resume writer who wants to hit the ground running with an established system and incoming leads -- I'd be happy to discuss including the scripts, old client docs, templates, etc. along with the website for the right buyer.

Using this site as the primary driver, I made nearly 200K in revenue in 4 years time.

2013 $9,273 (6/mo)
2014 $26,005
2015 $40,671
2016 $67,798
2017 $51,340 (
6/mo)

Not only was this a great business, but I hit consistent 40%+YOY growth from inception to close: 40.22% (2014), 56.40% (2015), 66.70% (2016), 51.45% (2017)

How can the future owner improve this business?

A future owner could do a few things: First, change the host to save cost. I pay $35 a month (long story), but I think it could be hosted for about $50/year. From there I would increase traffic, blog, social, etc ... I've done very little there.

Secondly, I would simplify the offering. The main income-producing driver for this site was resume writing services, so I would focus on that, and get rid of ancillary services (and instead simply offer affiliates so you can still get paid for other services!)

Why are you selling this business?

The truth is, I moved into the recruiting business in June of 2017 and I've done VERY little with it since (I log in monthly and pass off leads to another writer who pays an affiliate fee) I keep thinking about doing this more on the side, but I just don't have time ... I would love to pass off what it took me 4 years to build and help YOU hit the ground running and avoid many of the mistakes I made along the way. Happy to provide support to help you hit the ground running!
