Business Description
This specialist marine publishing business first launched in 2008 and acquired by our client in 2013 was conceived to create a 100% online global business within the boating industry that could be operated from anywhere at any time, full or part time.

The website is powered by a fully functionally content managed directory driven platform which has been recently upgraded and which is mobile compliant including via iphone and android Apps. The business model itself is based on generating advertising revenue with various packages available including free, standard, premium, featured listing options and banner ads.

Visitors to the website are able to use search functionality to locate products and services on a category by category basis connecting directly with advertiser’s businesses where appropriate. Users are not charged for this service currently however a subscription based or e-commerce element to the site could be developed in the future.

One of the key selling points of the business is its top Google ranking performance in its sector. In part this is achieved by the news updates and promotional content on the website and its integration with the main social media platforms including facebook, LinkedIn and twitter etc. SEO and back links are all important strategies adopted to generate the high number of recorded visitor numbers to the site.

There is ample scope for a new owner to grow and develop this business further which is for sale as a going concern due to retained advertisers renewing subscriptions each year. The guide price has been set in consideration of the investment in website build and brand development, the customer database and obvious scope for ROI based upon further expansion of the business.
