This listing is a service business created in July 2015 in the home & garden niche. The business provides customers with a way to order specific services for their home. While the business itself can be fully operated online, the services are all performed in one Australian city. There's an opportunity to expand to other cities or even countries.
Peak seasons for this business are September to January during the spring and summer in Australia, with lower seasons from February to August.
The business currently employs one VA and a part-time employee. The seller themselves spends about 2 hours per week on the business. The VA could run the business completely on their own, but currently handles much of the customer service, management, and research duties. The part-time employee was hired as a redundancy and to help grow the business so that it could be scaled quickly. The part-time employee handles posting ads and other aspects related to bringing on new service providers. It will be up to the new owner if they continue to outsource work or take it on themselves.
On the site itself, one blog post per month is posted. The topics are written by an SEO agency and writing is done by a freelance copywriter who has been collaborating with the company since the beginning. There are 12 blog posts created for 2018 that will be scheduled for publishing once per month.
There are 6 social media profiles for the business. The platforms include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+, and YouTube. In addition to social media, there are 3 profiles set up on 3 review review sites. The review sites are more important for the business than the social media profiles.
An email list with 1.5K+ subscribers has been built which has received occasional emails for holidays. The email list is not being utilized currently to send out newsletters.
