This e-commerce business was established over 14 years ago, and quickly became one of the UK’s top sites for short breaks at top hotels, spa days, adventure days and event-focused gifts. The business grew strongly, and has been extremely profitable for the owners, who have diversified into other businesses as well. They now have less time and energy to devote to this business as they are more focused on other ventures, and have decided to put it up for sale.

The business is voucher-based, meaning clients pay upfront for a voucher that gives credit for an activity or break. Suppliers charge the company only when the voucher is redeemed, at a discount reflecting commission- for example, a hotel will bill the company £75 for a voucher sold to a client for £100, so the business has a 25% commission. Interestingly, 40% of vouchers are never redeemed, pushing profit margins for the business to extremely high levels.

There has been no investment in the business for the last several years in advertising or search engine optimisation, yet the website still has 19,000 page views per month. A small investment in advertising and SEO could sharply increase traffic. With a well-known domain name attracting thousands of repeat clients without any advertising or advertising investment, there is clearly a huge opportunity to grow this business. Turnover in the last fiscal year was £110,000 with profit to the owners of £60,000; in peak years turnover has exceeded £500k. With interest, effort and minimal investment, these levels of high turnover and profit could easily be re-captured by leveraging this well-known domain name.
