Premier Lowcountry Magazine Annual Periodical
Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, Beaufort, and Charleston




Asking Price:    $27,500

Gross Income:  $83,000

Cash Flow:       $30,000
FF&E:                $1,000 included

Established:     2011
Employees:      1

Business Description

OWNER SAYS SELL: This is a wonderful opportunity for someone with sales experience to earn a solid second income!

All sales are generated from mid January through April, with an established client base.

Price Reduced to less than 1 year's cash flow.

Premier Lowcountry magazine is an annual publication containing featured articles by low country writers, beautiful photography, and a unique advertising principal..."Only one company is allowed to advertise in each business category". This exclusivity is a great value to advertisers, and is a key component in closing sales. The publication has intentionally avoided entering the overly saturated monthly periodical market by printing annually, but there remains great growth potential by publishing semiannually, or quarterly. The owner is willing to continue to prepare the magazine for publishing for a nominal fee per publication.

The owners are planning to relocate, and are eager to sell.

Detailed Information

Furniture, Fixtures, & Equipment (FF&E):   Included in asking price

Facilities:  Home Based

Competition:  This publication has found its own market niche, by avoiding the overly saturated monthly periodical market segment, it provides much greater reader interest by the avoidance of re-hatched stories and advertisements, and in addition, will remain in the readers' home or office for an entire year, providing greater exposure to the advertisers' market. The distribution has been carefully focused upon higher income neighborhoods, and is therefore placed directly into the hands of those most interested in the magazine's selected advertisers.

Growth & Expansion:  The publication is currently an annual magazine. There is great growth potential by changing the format to either semi-annual, or quarterly; for this would greatly enhance the marketability of the magazine to potential advertisers, by providing greater flexibility in ad copy changes, and would provide the opening up of the magazine to other markets such as a real estate section, and dining and entertainment. The Beaufort market has not been strongly marketed which has strong potential.

Financing:  Owner financing available.

Support & Training:  Owners will provide up to 30 days of training, with on-going phone support for an additional 60 days.

Reason for Selling:  Other business interests, relocating.
