General description

Become the owner of the "World's First Vinyl Buyers Club"! Dollar Vinyl Club (DVC) has created a novel music buying concept focused on regular buyers of vinyl records. Unlike many of the vinyl subscription clubs in the marketplace today, DVC lets members choose which titles they want to purchase without recurring fees. The "Buyers Club" business model has been very well received with people who have become frustrated with the various "Subscription Clubs" available today.

Club Membership is only $1 and entitles the buyer to pick records from our collection of over 550 in-stock titles as well as place special orders. Additionally, Club Members earn loyalty and rewards points for purchases.

Dollar Vinyl Club mostly focuses on classic rock, blues rock, grunge and hard rock titles. DVC also has titles from reggae, punk, hip-hop, funk, southern rock and other genres. A wide selection of audiophile quality vinyl pressings is available, as well.

We also offer the "Dollar Vinyl Box" as an incentive for Club Members to purchase larger quantities of records in a single visit. The Club Member essentially picks out 5-8 records of their choice and we ship them in the "Dollar Vinyl Box". It's a great way to build custom box sets for the Club Member. The "Dollar Vinyl Box" is exclusive to DVC and is made from archive quality materials.

Financials and traffic

A potential buyer can increase profit dollars by focusing on volume. Profit margins can also be increased by adding other products such as rare, collectible and used albums. Offering hardware (turntables, speakers, amplifiers etc.) and other music related items can help raise profitability.

The sales price DOES INCLUDE inventory. However, I would be willing to negotiate on inventory as the buyer could purchase some or all of it. Depending on the location of the buyer, I would be able to ship inventory via Media Mail with insurance.

Q & A

Why should someone buy this store?

U.S. vinyl album sales for 2017 were the highest since 1991. Over 14 million vinyl LPs were sold in 2017, marking the 12th consecutive year in growth. The top selling vinyl albums of 2017 well reflect the current in-stock titles available at Dollar Vinyl Club.

This is a perfect opportunity for an e-commerce entrepreneur to enter the music business at a high point in vinyl LP shipments.

Owners of existing brick & mortar record stores could buy Dollar Vinyl Club as a way to easily enter the online "Vinyl Club" market to sell existing new & used inventory. DVC has customers from all corners of the United States, so this is a great opportunity to extend the reach of your business.

DVC has earned high reviews (4.5 stars) on TrustedSite with many happy customers. We hope to find the right buyer who we feel will take the torch and keep the Club Members happy and buying lots of awesome music!

NOTE: The listed sales price DOES INCLUDE our current physical inventory. Serious inquiries can discuss options for purchasing some or all of our physical inventory. We can provide a list of current in-stock inventory to a potential buyer. Feel free to visit our store to see which titles are available for purchase. This will provide an initial idea of which titles are included with our inventory.

The sales price DOES include the following domains:

  • dollarvinylclub.com
  • dollarvinylclub.net
  • dollarvinylclub.info
  • dollarvinylclub.co
  • dollarvinylclub.org
  • dollarvinyl.club
  • dollarvinylbox.com

How can the future owner improve the business?

A future business owner can improve the business by offering even more titles which can be shipped on-demand within 1-2 days. Having multiple physical locations to ship product (west coast / east coast) will assist in getting orders to customers faster at reduced shipping rates. Optimal physical locations can be discussed with serious inquiries.

Additionally, a future owner can offer rare, collectible and used albums which may command higher margins. Offering hardware (turntables, speakers, amplifiers etc.) may be an option for a future owner. Sales of other music related products and apparel could be an option, as well.

A business owner who has financial resources to provide an adequate marketing budget for Google AdWords can be very successful. Periods where we have budgeted low daily amounts for AdWords has driven great traffic to the store. We can provide post-purchase support for optimized keywords etc.

Finally, a future business owner can develop new limited edition Dollar Vinyl Box offerings to increase awareness of the brand and increase sales.

What work have you put into the store?

Extensive work has been done to design the Dollar Vinyl Box. The buyer will receive the artwork templates for our current and 2017 holiday edition Dollar Vinyl Box. The physical box design was all done in-house with outside professional art direction. Procurement of a low-run printer source for the box dies was a tremendous feat, as well.

A lot of work has been done on the website design, website mechanics and music curation to attract the right buyers. Notable efforts have been taken to add over 600 vinyl LP titles (complete with artwork, track listings etc.) to the store.

Countless hours and dollars have been spent on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for Dollar Vinyl Club. We are currently generating good organic and direct traffic as our brand is becoming to be recognized with very small advertising budgets. Feel free to Google "Dollar Vinyl Club" or any classic band with the brand name ("rolling stones dollar vinyl club"). We have over 600 pages submitted to Google with 450 currently indexed.
