Business Description

Preserve a Mission is a site where return missionaries, or parents or loved ones of returned missionaries, can print the emails they write home every week into a hard-bound book. The emails often contain images and text that a missionary want to remember forever.

How does your business make money?

We make money from selling the printed hardbound book to the customer filled with their memories.

Why should someone buy this business?

This business would be great for someone able to dedicate full time to it. With software functioning, it's an easy side revenue with an endless stream of revenue. Missionaries aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

How can the future owner improve this business?

We really wish we had more time to optimize the book creation process. Mostly technology-driven, there are a lot of ways we can improve that portion of the business dramatically cutting down on the manual labor of creating each book.

Why are you selling this business?

Google changed its API restrictions limiting our API access. We need to rebuild the connection using a standard IMAP connection instead of the Google API. This also allows us to import from other types of accounts as well, so it would be a tremendous upgrade. We originally went with Google's API because the church uses Gmail for all of their missionary accounts. Now that the restrictions have changed, it is more cost advantageous to build out an IMAP import tool.
