I just finished a weekend of skiing with friends in Utah, skiing in Deer Valley, and it has been absolutely stunning. In fact, as I write this, I am feet up on a couch looking over park city in front of a fireplace.
Just was having a nice moment of gratitude as I remember none of this would be possible without the magic of internet based businesses.
I don't want to be the one here reminding you of how much inflation "ate our lunch" recently, but I came across this graphic:
Living in this economy without getting a raise has probably become tougher.
Go ahead, look at it more closely. The only things that seem to cost less are TV's and cellphone service...School, childcare, food, housing...all through the roof.
There is only one way you can have beat this...thats to either get massive raises at work, or to have your own business that made more money.
I think we all know we are big believers in AT LEAST having a small side business that allows you to control your own time and money, it's the only way to win.
So...lets take a look at some you can buy below.
Nano Flips Special Offer
This is a pretty sweet little deal right here. Im often looking for insights from other operators in the market that I respect. Olly Richards is one of them.
Olly Richards put together a giant, 117-page case study about how he’s scaled his business to $10M.
When he sent it to me I have to admit I was pretty impressed at the depth.
Seems relevant not just for creators and coaches but anyone looking for creative solutions to scale with a super lean team. If you're buying, building, or operating sites, it's def worth a download.
"An online business that specializes in selling a collection of adjustable and poseable drawing mannequins designed for artists to accurately capture human anatomy in various poses, enhancing sketching and illustration efficiency."
Love an ecom brand thats making money from drop shipping with their traffic coming from organic search. It means there are some amazing obvious opportunities for growth, all while having a super solid foundation to start with.
Currently at $3k or so monthly profit coming off the holidays, with a trailing 12 month profit of $18k
Organic search is 2/3 of its traffic
Can build out organic social content strategy for it
Major opportunity for conversion rate optimization
Margins may be able to be increased, by carrying inventory instead \
Paid social could be great opportunity for someone who is a media buyer by trade
Ok it's rare to find something like this to be honest. Ecom brands for sale often are just running on paid ads and only as good as their last campaign.
So you know what they sell...here is an example.
First thing is first, I would start looking at 3 things to grow this business.
Plan an organic social strategy: The move here would be to aggregate videos of people teaching how to draw...there are tons of them. Of course - GIVE CREDIT TO CREATORS. Add the link to your products in your bio, build a tiktok shop, and your off the races!
Paid Media ad campaigns: Without even having to run lots of cold campaigns you could just set up retargeting on meta, and google shopping. Should be an easy win for growth.
Candidly, I dont see this growing into a $100M brand.
But low 7 figures seems reasonable eventually.
I would continue by cross selling drawing supplies as well, you could even partner with creators and try and selling online programs on drawing more.
There is a ton of opportunity.
Obviously would keep pushing on the organic SEO lever that is doing so well for the site already.
Ahrefs shows a TON of opportunity.
$10k a month in profit would make $300K business, and Im positive there is enough space in this niche to make it more like $100k a month
Want to look at a different opportunity? Maybe a content site?
Let's keep looking below...
Other Businesses This Week
Here is a little breakdown of some of the listings we see on the marketplaces and brokers and an off market deal. This includes newsletters, content sites, and more.
Some require a little love and TLC from the right buyer to run them, and some are just cranking away out of the box :)
As always...do your own due diligence, the above is based off of what we see as an opportunity from the info provided in the listing and some light due diligence, not a deep dive. It just one of many scenarios that could play out and its up to you to do your own due diligence and see if this makes sense for you!
