Wait, is this an ad for a business -  or a holiday?!!?

This is ::: profit without the pressure!!!
 

Make Money All Year Doing What Other People Pay To Do For A Few Days!!!

 

It doesn’t get any better than this if what you’re after is a relaxed, laid back lifestyle where “work” is what other people do to relax, but where the profits are self-propelled by the growing number tourists visiting the Margaret River enclave. What’s even better, up and coming Government tourist targeted advertising (interstate and internationally) is likely to accelerate the tourist stampede into the south-west
 

•            Established 12 Years >> So safe you could bet your life on it!

•            Immediate Potential To Increase Sales: >> Simply Add Extra Buses

•            No Employees:  >> Drivers Are Employed As Contractors

•            Work From Home: >> Low Overheads

•            Cash Upfront Debtors:  >> Before Tour begins


But there is even a larger growth opportunity on the horizon: the redevelopment of Busselton airport. And all this business needs to do to profit from the  redevelopment  of Busselton Airport and the increasing number of cruise ships calling at the port is to ensure it’s ready to deal with the influx of more tourists from the eastern states and overseas.
 
The possibilities for this exciting wine tour business are really so numerous that upon examination it can be clearly seen that the problem for management is not so much to locate avenues for expansion but to select the ones of greatest advantage from the many available.

 

NO BETTER BUSINESS

If you’ve ever sat in the dappled shade of a spreading tree, dining on fresh local produce, idly listening to the happy chatter of the people around you while thinking “I wish this didn’t have to end”?…

WELL IT DOESN’T!!!
This home-based business currently occupies its owners for around 25 to 30 hours a week.  Every week the owner spends a few hours taking bookings and doing administration, then when they feel it’s necessary to get out of the office they take over from their casual contracted tour guides and run selected winery and brewery tours for which this business is deservedly famous over it’s 12 years of establishment.

 

EVEN BETTER - TAKE AN EXTENDED HOLIDAY OR MORE EVERY YEAR
AND SUCCESSFULLY MANAGED IT REMOTELY!

 

MASSIVE POTENTIAL TO DOUBLE PROFITS

Currently, the business generates sales of over $300,000 a year, but there’s rock solid evidence that this business can easily do better, simply by looking at its own history.
 
Or, you could opt to increase the current low level of marketing and promotion. Or perhaps design and run additional tours. There’s plenty of possibilities – all you have to do is choose how busy you want to be!!
 
Situated in the idyllic southwest, this business has generated those revenues with very little worry, advertising and marketing. That’s because the State Government and the various tourism bodies spend millions of dollars promoting southwest tourism and all this business needs to do is…

 

…SIT BACK AND REAP THE BENEFITS!!

It also draws what is, for this industry, an exceptionally high level of repeat business. People love what it offers and keep coming back for more.

 
This is a total hassle-free operation:

 
  • ALL BOOKINGS ARE PAID FOR BEFORE THE TOUR STARTS

  • YOU CAN WORK THE HOURS YOU WANT TO WORK

  • ALL THE TOUR GUIDES ARE CASUAL CONTRACTORS

  • THERE’S NO PREMISES TO PAY FOR

  • GOVERNMENT AGENCIES DO MOST OF YOUR ADVERTISING FOR YOU

 

If this was any more relaxed we’d say you could earn money in your sleep – OH WAIT, YOU COULD!! - you could be having an afternoon siesta while one of your guides hosts a tour and generates more profit!!
This relaxed, flexible operation extends to the work of the owners. All tours are paid for at time of booking, so there’s no debtor management and costs are easy to predict.
 
With a GROSS PROFIT MARGIN close to 100%, low overheads, no employed staff, high barriers to a new entrant and 12 years of history behind it, this business also couldn’t be more secure.

 

HOW EASY IS IT TO RUN?...

...The Current Owners Take An Extended Holiday Or More Every Year And Successfully Managed It Remotely!

Other people pay to visit the southwest for a few days a year, and a great many of them pay to take one of the tours organised and run by this business. You can enjoy he lifestyle all year round, and make money doing it.
 


UNBEATABLE FEATURES…

 

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

The current owners had no industry experience prior to running the business. The business is extremely simple to operate and can easily accommodate flexible working hours.  The daily activities of the owner are self-driven; though the level of effort and number of hours worked have an effect on growth.  A new owner needs only general knowledge about how to run a business; a feel for customer service and how to handle people; and an organised approach.
 

HIGH GROSS PROFIT MARGIN

Self-propelled sales and a high gross profit margin close to 100 percent is indicative of a business which is both solid and low in competition.
 

THE FUTURE MARKET LOOKS UPBEAT

Given the fact that the region is ever more attractive for visitors from Perth and the eastern states, and that both Tourism WA and the MRBTA are investing in promoting the region, it would be reasonable to expect sales will increase in line with the effort expended to promote it. Recent news that the government will be mounting an extensive marketing campaign to drive more international visitors to the southwest region is also good news. Added to that, the Busselton Airport extension will bring more visitors, as does the growing cruise ship market.
 

LOW RISK

Low overheads, no full time staff (only contract drivers), the fact it is operated from a private residence, that it is long established, and branding has already been established all combine to make this an extremely low-risk proposition.
 

FUN AND EASY TO OPERATE

This is a business which makes coming to work a pleasure.  There would be few if any businesses that could offer the same level of enjoyment, lifestyle and holidays that this business offers.
 

LONG ESTABLISHED

The business has been conducting tours for 12 years.  During this period the business has grown quite substantially and has earned a very good reputation in the region, building a trusting relationship with its partners in the industry and amongst the other tour companies in the region. 
 

NO RELIANCE ON SALES STAFF

The vast majority of enquiries come via the companies own website, referrals or repeat custom, which means the owner does not have the overhead of running a sales force. However it also puts the new owner in the enviable position of having at hand a means by which demand could almost certainly be increased if desired, by increasing the business’s use of social media; and increasing the regularity of updates to the website, both of which can be done by new owner with only time, not additional funds, required.
 

OWNERS CAN TAKE HOLIDAYS

As previously mentioned, the business offers a very flexible lifestyle.  With ease of access to email, the website etc. the business can be run by the owner even when not in town. The current owners have managed the business while overseas on vacation, taking four weeks holiday a year during which time tour guides hosted all the tours.
 

LOW TRADING HOURS 25 to 30 hours per week

Trading hours are set by the owner. Tasks such as working on email inquiries can be done at the owner’s convenience, phone calls can be sent to message bank for later reply. Taking a mobile phone allows the owner to work anywhere, even while at the beach or taking the kids to the footy.
 

MINOR OVERHEADS

No full-time staff wages, no rented premises and low advertising makes this a business like no other.  Given the size of the annual turnover, overheads are relatively small.

 
PROFITS CAN BE PROVEN

The business has a complete set of verified accounts which clearly show its profitability. Potential buyers will be given tax accountants detailed and Profit & Loss statements.
 

NO BAD DEBTS

During the vendor’s ownership the business has not experienced any bad debts since all bookings must be paid upfront before getting on the tour.  
 

THE ULTIMATE LIFESTYLE BUSINESS – THE ULTIMATE PLACE TO LIVE

Live where others travel to have a vacation! -Work with people on vacation, who are in a happy mood, showing them the region, the wines, the experience... it can hardly be called work!


The above-mentioned features are everyone’s dream, which means everyone will be onto this in a hurry.
