    SEMrush
    Hi, I am Lorelei. Although I have a BC in Psychology, Photoshop and design have always been my passion, and for many years LoreleiWebDesign.com was my "baby," that I genuinely worked hard to create unique content for.

    You can view more information about me on any of my social media profiles, where I have been active for over 10 years.

    Executive Summary

    This is a classic web design blog that includes exclusive Photoshop tutorials that generated plenty of genuine backlinks from authority domains throughout the years. On the pages of our website, we sell exclusive material such as Photoshop Actions (Lightroom presets) and PSD files from our tutorials, as well as make extra money selling advertising space, reviews, promotional newsletters, and affiliated web design deals.

    Highlights

    This is a genuine blog that I worked hard on for many years. All the backlinks are the result of real sharing and spreading the word. All our traffic is highly targetted, web design/photoshop related. Our visitors purchase our own content (PSD files and Photoshop actions) as well as the affiliate products we promote on a regular basis.

    Operations

    I decided to sell this blog as I have absolutely no time to maintain it and decided to direct my efforts into other projects, yet I shamefully admit, it requires very little maintenance. Vest majority of the monetization is automated - the purchasing is set up through PayPal and is fully automated. Sponsors will contact you on a daily basis asking for sponsored posts/ links/banners. We refuse all the non-organic niches, but it will be up to the new buyer, who to accept and who to reject. As this blog isn't my primary source of income, I was able to allow myself to refuse most of the advertising offers, so the approx. $300 we make monthly through this blog, is about 70% of the potential.

    Customers

    All our customers are interested in Photoshop, design, photography, and art. Please refer to our Google Analytics for a better and deeper insight into the traffic sources, interests and bounce rates.

    Financials

    As I already mentioned, our visitors are buying our own products (PSD files & Photoshop actions) and our affiliate products we promote on a regular basis. The buyer will receive a list of all the products and websites we promote that has proven successful throughout the past years. The revenue used to be about $600-500 last year and slowly declined to about $300, as I had absolutely no time to add new material, tutorial, reply to emails or engage in any maintenance whatsoever. Life got in a way, I had other projects and the revenue from LoreleiWebDesign.com declined in the background. I don't want to make promises and tell any potential buyer (like most sellers do) that if you'd only dedicate 20 minutes a day to this website, you will begin to see unearthly profits within a few days. I will be honest, and tell you that this website is sold "as is". Although it's likely that in good hands this website has the big potential (SEO and traffic), and you will be able to double or triple the revenue, I can only speak about the current financial situation.

    Many of you may ask, why we don't use Adsense. No, this website, nor my account in general, isn't banned from Google Adsense program, yet every attempt to profit from this partnership failed; I never wanted to staff visitors with ads in their face (aka the "top position") and adding a banner somewhere in he footer hardly ever generated clicks, so I gave up on the idea of PPC networks many years ago. Nonetheless, this domain isn't blacklisted, so if the new owner decides to experiment with PPC - you are more than welcome.

    Seller Notes

    Please, only serious buyers. I will be happy to answer all your questions (realistically - about twice daily), so don't hesitate to contact me.
