Business Description
Business Sale Overview:

For sale is an Online Digital Marketplace/Publisher for Independent books. The business contains a

website, an Android and iOS app and a back-end admin system as well as social media following and over 25 books available on the platform already. As self-publishing has been on the rise for the past couple of years this is the right time to tap into this business as this is quickly becoming the

preferred way authors choose to publish their books. Ink Library offers both the opportunity for

authors to publish and sale their works on the platform. This business has been trading from March

2020. The domain has been held for a year and a half but only began trading in March. The business

is run by the current owner and is looking to sell as it has started to grow rapidly, and the vendor

doesn’t have the time to put into it due to other projects. The business comes with a dev support

with a very favourable rate which has been strongly negotiated between the current owner and the

developing company, the agreement expires in October, after which the new owner can either chose

to stay with the current dev team or assign their own.

Business Sale Description:

This brilliant Digital Marketplace/Publisher for Independent books is for sale and has seen rapid

growth with both users of the platform and visitors to the website. This business has the potential to

be the go-to place to self-publish books not only in the UK but worldwide as it does not have any

geographical restrictions. Currently the business supports monetary conversion in the following

currencies: $,£ and €. The current owner has put in place some fantastic foundations and with the

right owner who can put the time in, the potential for this business is huge.

This is a unique business in which the owner has got the website looking fantastic and is really easy

to use. The logic behind the sales journey is that a purchase should not be more than 3 clicks away,

thus making the process simple and user friendly. The website is fully functional and supports a beautiful and sleek design.

The platform offers a simple and interactive dashboard which makes the entire process easy and

removes the tedious jumping through hoops; notion associated with traditional publishing.

Authors can easily monitor their sales real time.

There has already been a very warm reaction from authors as this gives them the perfect platform to

expose their books to the world. There is a good social media following currently and this would be

transferred to the new owner.

As the business started operating in March, currently, the annual turnover is small but there are 200

active users on the site as of this moment already. This is a business that is still in its infancy and

which has a massive potential to grow. The new owner needs to put a good amount of time in to

make it happen, but even the limited time the current owner has put into it has yielded significant

results. Users really like the design of both the website and mobile apps.

This business opportunity offers unbelievable flexibility to any new potential owner due to its

entirely online operation. It is relocatable to anywhere. A buyer who is looking for a business that

they can expand and build on would be the most ideal buyer.

The current owner truly believes in the potential of this business and would like to retain 1%

minority stock in this company.
