Business Description

Unlock Network provides a complete suite of smart-phone unlocking solutions. Unlock network can unlock almost any phone from any telecommunications network in any country. There are a range of reasons why a customer would want a device unlocked: they may be traveling overseas and wish to avoid roaming charges, switch providers for a better deal or simply resell your phone for a decent price.

Unlock Network functions as a retailer of unlocking solutions. Once a customer notifies us of the phone, network and solution they require we turn to one of our suppliers and purchase the solution the customer requires. We then deliver the solution to the customer via email.

How can the future owner improve this business?

SEO: the website has dropped, resulting in a significant drop in sales since the beginning of 2018. For example, the blog has not been touched since December 2016.

SEM: today there is only a few Adwords running (for UK and France and these campaigns are out-dated.
Facebook ads + targeting is not currently maintained.

Explore the US and Spanish market.

Affiliation: there is a ready-made affiliation, but 3/4 affiliates generate very poor revenue. Acquire more affiliates should lead to a direct uptick in sales.

Client database: with 400k (and maybe 250k more if I find the archive) client email database, there is room for additional cross-selling products.

And so much more: I have a road map and todo list ready!
