Popular Sydney What's On Website / Directory for Sale

Love markets? Here's your chance to run a popular online directory & blog detailing Sydney markets and community events with immediate opportunity for growth.

The business has been operating for 7 years and during this time has built a strong community following. Whilst primarily a directory to markets, it also features a popular event calendar, a blog, monthly newsletter and a community Noticeboard which provides a platform for market stallholders and operators to advertise business opportunities. The business has a strong social media following and is also available in a mobile friendly format.

Local Market Guide has also operated an annual event for the past 3 years, Markets in May that promotes the growth of markets within communities and has been widely publicised in the media.

REVENUE comes from annual market listings, pop-up events and third party advertising.

Potential

Markets continue to pave the way, providing shoppers with locally produced and artisan crafted goods. The number of markets and stallholders is also growing, and with it the opportunity to advertise with Local Market Guide. Currently only focused on Sydney sales, immediate expansion and advertising would include regional NSW and interstate. The software is already built with this capability in mind as well as an e-commerce function. The business would also complement existing event activation and market businesses.

Strengths

  • The business is in line with the current movement towards low food miles and access to fresh local produce as well as the rise of artisan makers and producers. Markets continue to gain popularity.
  • The only website dedicated to Sydney markets and stallholders
  • Strong traffic and well ranked on Google (top 5 for most markets searches)
  • Recognised brand with loyal advertisers

The Business

The business is currently run from home on a part-time basis. The focus to date has been on building the brand and traffic to the site and as such all revenue has gone directly back into marketing and web development.

What is required to keep the business operational?

Local knowledge about Sydney markets & events and a passion for markets, food provenance and the growth of artisan makers and producers. The success of the business to date has been not only the content and the marketing of the site, but the relationships that have been developed by regularly going to and enjoying markets as well as getting to know the stallholders and operators. Social media is key.
