8 Year Old Premium Travel Business - Advertising Driven in numbers
The travel industry is extremely popular for investors online. When one comes up for sale, it does not last long. This business is no exception. This site provides travel news stories, weekly and bi-monthly newsletters and a comprehensive Meta search for cheap flights, hotels, car rentals, vacations and cruises that provides some unique features that separates them from the competition. It comes with a network of 32+ blogs, an active email list of 350K US subscribers and 50K UK subscribers. The site has thousands of articles online and boasts over 300K keywords that generate traffic. At a time where search traffic from Google is uncertain, this site has a fantastic mix of organic (41%), direct (24%), referral (19%) and paid (16%) traffic to alleviate any risk of relying too heavily on Google to generate its revenue. Revenue is generated through private advertising sales from some major companies including TripAdvisor.com, Hotwire.com, FlightNetwork.com, Priceline.com, & TravelZoo.com. Not one company represents a large percentage of the revenue, which again speaks to the stability of the business. From July 2011- June 2012, the business has grossed $321K and boasted an owner’s benefit of $180K. They are currently entertaining offers from strategic investors, private investors and larger corporations who can take this business to the next level.
