With the unemployment rate in the U.S. still on the high side hovering around 8%, many individuals continue seeking information on home based work or business opportunities. The market for paid survey information is very strong in a weak or recovery economy. Under any economy, the sweepstakes sites perform consistently well in their demographic target group.
This listing includes 20 website businesses in the paid survey, market research, sweepstakes and work from home verticals. The company generates revenues through two business models. The first model provides income through membership subscriptions. Customers pay for a membership and are given access to a large database of paid survey, mystery shopping and focus group companies from which they receive premium content on earning money.
The second business model provides income through the sale of email lists. The company has a traffic arbitrage business where they collect email addresses which are automatically sold to market research companies, gaming companies and other online marketing firms.
This set of websites can be operated from anywhere and is an ideal home business. Both aspects are automated and require very little work. The owner spends about 8-10 hours per week overseeing media buying and staff management. There are 4 contractors handling media buying, graphic designing and customer service support. There is no inventory to handle as all offerings are accessed online upon receipt of payment.
This is a great opportunity to purchase a set of websites in a growing industry that requires little time to operate!
With such a solid foundation in place, this portfolio of websites can maintain profits on a nearly auto pilot basis. However, there are still tremendous opportunities for growth in the pay per lead field. The websites have a good reputation in the industry and the company gets approached with new business ideas and marketing deals all the time. Buying keywords and search traffic, increasing link popularity and doing SEO work on the recently launched sites will grow organic traffic tremendously.
In addition to a member area that is large and rich in content, its products are competitively priced allowing this group of sites to continue to grow amidst any industry competition.
