βœ… Vegan Food Lover

About the business

Important info:

Start by checking the history and authority of this website. Check the previous branding as well.

It makes money from AdThrive, Amazon, and Sponsored posts.

The website was dormant for the past three years.

The owners acquired it last year, and started to monetize it last month, the revenue is estimated based on the current AdThrive daily amount and Sponsored post amount. As they acquired it at an auction they don’t have access to social media channels. 

At the beginning of March 2023, they added it to AdThrive, and the account CAN and WILL be transferred to the new owner

This is a great opportunity for someone who wouldn’t meet the criteria to join the Adthrive Premium network.

With over 14,500 page views per month and over 650 articles written, huge potential to double or triple the pageviews just by updating old content that used to rank in the past. You can easily triple the revenue in 2-3 months.

Look at these numbers below from AdThrive:

RPM ($ per 1,000 sessions) $7.88

Page RPM ($ per 1,000 pageviews) $6.89

It means this website is super under-monetized, typically a cooking website has a $30+ RPM, you can improve so many things!

Sponsored posts can be sold at between $100 and $300. 

In total, if you work a bit on the website you can easily make about $700 per month with the website as it is.

Operations

Currently advertised with Ezoic and a few Amazon links. See attachment. The owner got distracted by other projects and neglected this site. But it seems doing pretty okay. The new owner can continue pushing it by just adding quality content.

From Google Analytics, the traffic climbed steadily until reaching its peak in 2022 April (3678 pageviews). Then, slowly back to a constant level of around 1300 pageviews. That was actually quite impressive considering the owner has never touched the site for years. If you have time for this cheese blog project, go for it. 

The owner would suggest writing good content yourself. The site content was produced by the owner and his Upwork English native writer who was trained and also knows cheese. Don’t worry, no ChatGPT or AI content. was not a thing at that time when human content was still mainstream in 2020.

There is a lot of potential in the kitchen niche. Not only for products on Amazon but also for other affiliate networks, private deals, and ad revenue.

The owner had only spent his time building out this site. Breadmakers.org is generating some Amazon affiliate revenue in 2022. It is approved for Ezoic but is not currently displaying ads. 

The plugins are all free except for Elementor Pro and AmaLinks Pro. He has an agency license for Elementor Pro, so keeping it won’t be a problem. He’s moving away from AmaLinks, so you would need your own license or you can transition to another company. But all links will work indefinitely.
