Lucrative Network of Auto Part E-commerce Sites
Asking Price: $750,000
This network of e-commerce websites is focused on providing aftermarket new auto parts to both consumers and auto body shops in the US. The market for auto parts, both new and used, is a huge market topping over $160 billion dollars in 2007. The site was started in 2005 as a single e-commerce site selling new auto parts focused in a smaller niche of the larger general auto parts market; specifically items commonly sought by do-it-yourself repairmen looking to complete repairs at home. Over time two more e-commerce sites were added to expand the number of parts carried and improve availability. Currently this network contains 10 sites and collects over 500,000 unique visitors every year. The network gets page one, position one results in the key search engines for most of the important keywords for the product selections carried. This business is operated by a single owner with two of the sites being fully automated with products drop shipped and the third website's operations very simplified. Sales and customer base continue to grow every year.
