RigorSports.com is a membership site that provides professional sports picks for the following sports based in the U.S: NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, WNBA, NCAA Basketball, NCAA Football, Tennis, and MMA. RigorSports has posted a lifetime winning record of over 60%, which in the sports betting community is considered very competitive. The site has made consistent sales from free traffic over the last 10 months, and is almost completely automated.
Where do the picks come from?
The owner has a relationship with a professional sports capper that provides the picks on a continual basis. This will continue on to the next owner so there will be no downtime. It costs $500 a month (see financials) and is the bread and butter of the business. If you have the ability to provide clients with your own solid sports picks, then you can shave this expense and increase monthly profits by $500 instantly.
Maintenance and Customer Service
The site takes literally 15 minutes at most a day to run. The only thing you have to manage is setting up sports pick delivery to clients via email and SMS through email, and customer service issues with ordering and billing. People are happy with the service with 0 refunds since inception.
The site is built with a custom admin platform which makes managing the site straightforward. The seller is providing full training for up to one month after the sale.
Ideas for growth
Currently there is not a strong affiliate program in place. Implementing one would be a solid strategy to grow the business as the sports betting niche is pretty tight knit with a lot of demand, and word of mouth is strong - customers often refer their friends.
Redesigning the site could increase conversions and bring in more targeted traffic. The site currently doesn't have great curb appeal.
The site accepts payments from all over the world. However, since all the sports are U.S. based, there are people who pass on the service out of lack of interest. Offering more sports picks for international sports could fill this gap and increase earnings.

Sports picks are from a professional capper that costs $500 a month, so you never have to do this on your own unless you want to. Other than this there are merchant fees (Paypal) and Weebly hosting costs.
The site generates daily traffic through SEO, posting in forums and other various methods. Google analytics is not set up but all traffic can be verified before purchase through the host (Weebly) website.
Reason for Selling
Relationship with professional handicapper is great. I'm selling to focus on other projects. I will sign a non compete clause if requested. No problem.
