Why is the listing being sold?

This was built as a side project for the seller, he never tried to market it or run advertising campaigns, and in 2018/2019 saw huge growth due to 2 factors:

1) A well known mobile app started hosting their product with us (organic acquisition)
2) We ranked 1st on Google for a number of great keywords

Towards the end of 2019, the large mobile app was forced to close down (they had legal issues) and this coincided with Google suddenly dropping the platform for a lot of keywords it ranked so well for. (You can see the drop in revenue around September 2019, which is when the mobile app hosted with us was forced to retire)

Who would this business be perfect for:

- Somebody who has a good understanding of the cloud storage space
- Someone with some Digital Marketing 'know-how'.

At the moment it requires very little admin time and can be managed from anywhere, a few hours a week to respond to support queries (Intercom) and ensure the system is running smoothly. Copyrighted files that receive DMCA requests are automatically removed within 24 hours (script monitors the inbox and removes files appropriately)
