Starting in 2014, this well-established email capture SaaS business helps customers convert traffic into valuable leads. The business runs a typical plugin-based freemium model and generates both monthly and annual recurring revenue by offering additional features to paying customers. The business offers a free WordPress plugin and Shopify app to acquire customers and simplify installation. The product integrates directly with dozens of top email service providers, including MailChimp, AWeber, ConvertKit, Klaviyo, and HubSpot.
The business currently has over 1,900 paying subscribers, $86K in MRR, an average customer lifetime value of around $1,250, and a monthly churn rate of ~3.2%. The business peaked in 2017 with $540K in MRR. However, due to disagreement over the direction of the business, the co-founders put the business on autopilot. They stopped all active marketing and non-critical development and shifted their focus to another business which presented a significantly larger opportunity. Without active leadership, the business has declined steadily over the last several years.
This willful neglect leaves a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to take advantage of the existing customer base, an email list of 100,000 subscribers, a solid infrastructure, and an established brand. The sellers are seeking a new owner to take over and grow the business and are willing to provide support and guidance for a smooth transition.
