Student Website for Reviewing University Lecturers
- Huge growth opportunity
- Low overhead costs
- Highly unique platform
This is a unique chance to purchase a web-based platform which allows students across the UK to rate their university lecturers.
Rateyourlecturer.co.uk was first established approximately 6 years ago, when the vendor was inspired by his days at university in the USA where a similar platform has truly flourished.
The website allows students to efficiently provide a rating and feedback comments for all teaching staff at universities throughout the UK, as well as the universities themselves and their courses/programmes. Over in the USA and Canada, a similar platform has become an instrumental tool in students’ decisions as to which classes they take, with thousands of students regularly engaging with the site.
The vendor has run Rateyourlecturer.co.uk as a project rather than a business and has never monetised it, but it offers a staggering amount of growth potential for a buyer experienced in monetisation.
By developing Rateyourlecturer.co.uk into a vital platform which informs students’ university experience across the UK, the new owner will be able to tap into several possible revenue streams to begin generating a healthy turnover. For the right buyer, this is a highly lucrative opportunity that is not to be missed.
The business does not have any premises attached to it and so it is available for sale on a fully relocatable basis. The present business model makes the website suitable to run from the buyer’s home or an office location to suit their own preferences.
The website itself boasts a modern design with easy navigation and search functions, whilst its on-site blog is starting to generate enriching content to enhance the user experience. The brand has also set up Facebook and Twitter pages.
The new owner will take on the business’s website and its growing database of lecturers and students. Additionally, the vendor is happy to provide a transitional period to ensure the buyer has a successful start to their ownership.
The ideal buyer for Rateyourlecturer.co.uk is someone who has the knowledge and skillset required to monetise the website and propel the business’s growth.
There are numerous methods which could be implemented to monetise the platform. Firstly, the new owner could offer Pay-Per-Click advertising to other companies who want to get their products/services in front of a student audience. Secondly, the business could produce regular newsletters which cover student issues and services. This offers the potential for sponsorship from other companies. Thirdly, the buyer may wish to use data capture to sell other student-related products/services to the website’s users. This could include books, clubs, passes, discounts, and services.
Overall, Rateyourlecturer.co.uk is ripe with enormous growth potential and could prove invaluable as a strategy for other company owners to precisely target their brand in front of a student audience, therefore making it a lucrative acquisition opportunity.
