We Catch Red Flags That Others Miss

Our team is well-versed in both operating and acquiring YouTube channel businesses.

Our due diligence unearths the red flags in the channel, niche, revenues, and more.

What’s Covered?

We perform a rigorous 17-point analysis of your YouTube channel acquisition. We deliver a written report outlining our findings with metrics to showcase the pros and cons of the asset. Our analysis digs deep into these categories.

Business Analysis

YouTube channels are built around a specific niche or topic. We’ve reviewed YouTube channels for sale in a platitude of broad and niche topics giving us an upper hand when evaluating. We do the following:

Deep-dive into the channel’s niche and how that impacts operations

P&L Analysis

The valuation of the business is based on a multiple of past earnings. Our team has deep expertise in catching red flags in a P&L that do not add up with the actual earnings. We look for:

Verifying claimed revenues via access to the dashboard, screenshots, and video

Trailing revenue analysis to catch trends

Cost analysis and insights

Channel Monetization

Understanding the revenue streams the business is currently utilizing is key to evaluating the business for sale. With our years of experience, we can advise on which monetization strategies are red flags. We look for:

Insights into time requirements weekly to keep business stable or growing

YouTube Channel Valuation

WebAcquisitions was fast, responsive, and most competitively priced. Turning around my report in only 5 days, they are one of the few firms that do a thorough SEO assessment as well as validating revenues. Mushfiq’s experience allowed us to catch things that weren’t on our radar.

WebAcquisition team performed a due diligence review of a content website we wanted to acquire from Empire Flipper’s brokerage. They reviewed everything related to the website and provided insights that have helped us make a decision. Recommended!

My consultation with WebAcquisition was very valuable and insightful. I was seeking feedback on potentially merging two sites into one and the conversation helped determine the best path forward, but also covered some other things like better monetization techniques. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced

Mushfiq and the team are experts and are always great to work with. Not only do they have a very quick turnaround on Due Diligence reports themselves (I’ve used them twice now for two successful purchases), Mushfiq is always available for follow-up questions. He is also extremely quick to respond. Would recommend.

The DD report was very informative, detailed, and expertly put together.

It was a valuable tool to help inform my decision on the [YouTube channel] business I was looking to acquire. It was money well spent considering the cost of the business I was looking to buy. I highly recommend their services.
