Business Description

More info of our technology here: https://getthecrypt.com/sale/

At The Crypt we use our robust custom-built software to summarize news articles and automatically generate the Newsletters that we send to our subscribers. I have personally built a simple web interface that can be used by a non-technical person (Videos will be attached below)

Our newsletter provides our subscribers with a perfect newsletter sent in the morning to prepare them for the day. As a person who works on Wall Street, I understand the intrinsic value of this product. Using our custom-built web interface, our system takes mere seconds to create a newsletter.

Your only task is to find the articles that you want to include.

Included in this sale:
- Website
- Email List (245 current subscribers)
- AI/NLP Technology
- Partner List/ CRM (1,231 Contacts)
- Social Media Accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Youtube)
- Technical Help (Assistance for 4 Weeks)
- Accounts (Mailerlite, Gmail, Hosting Account, Topol, Hubspot, etc)

How does your business make money?

Though this project is pre-revenue, the newsletter business makes money in 3 ways:

  • Sponsorships
  • Advertising
  • Partnerships

Our Closest cohorts are MorningBrew, Robinhood Snacks, The Water Coolest Newsletters.

These companies charge anywhere from $15-$40 CPM for Advertising.

For Example:
- 200,000 Subscribers = $3,000 - $8,000 per email sent...

However, these companies require millions of dollars in funding and dozens of full-time employees. While I have fully built an automated process to create a competing newsletter.

Why should someone buy this business?

You should purchase this business if they want to get a jumpstart on a TRULY competitive startup idea.

Just months ago, one of the incumbents in the space MarketSnacks was acquired by Robinhood for an undisclosed amount.

This is also not a winner take all industry, the avg subscriber joins multiple newsletters.

And I have spent the last year building a remarkable system to automate the largest barrier to entry in the space… The manual labor needed to summarize news articles.

It is the perfect business for a person who would like to own a respectable high margin startup.

All questions will be answered!

How can the future owner improve this business?

I have spent many months brainstorming the growth plans of this business and this business can be grown in 3 ways:

  • Viral Referral Marketing (Getting subs to recommend friends)
    • I have already set up the flow for this.
  • Content Marketing

    • Youtube Videos
    • Blog Posts
    • SEO
  • Advertising

    • Preliminary research put CPA at $1-2
    • Influencer Marketing with Top Instagram Pages
    • - - I have already started communication with them

I have also previously hired a contractor to compile a list of all the top personal finance bloggers on the internet.

  • We have compiled a huge list of 1,231 Contacts.
  • - All neatly added to a Free Hubspot CRM Account included in the sale of the website

Why are you selling this business?

I am selling this business because I am an employee of a large Investment Bank and to comply with compliance rules and regulations I must sadly exit from the business due to its financial news nature. This is the main reason why I would rather see my technology and work go to a person who will build it forward rather than letting it die. As the ideal subscriber, I truly understand that this business has the potential to be a high margin, low commitment business with great upside.
