CCP Client ‘CO206’

Online Retail Affiliate Partner Providing Site Visitors Access to Over 80,000 Audiobooks

Clayton Capital Partners, a St. Louis based investment banking firm, is pleased to exclusively represent ‘CO206’ in the sale of all rights to its website.  As an affiliate partner with many of the world’s largest online audiobook retailers, CO206 provides site viewers with access to over 80,000 audiobooks.

  • Early Entrance into the Online Audiobook Industry – The Company has had a visible brand in the audiobook industry since 2004, before many of its competitors ever entered the market.  This affords the Company many advantages including (i) an established brand, (ii) a substantial amount of industry trend data including the most profitable keywords in the industry, (iii) dominant search engine rank, and (iv) cost advantages associated with paid advertising which makes it difficult for newcomers to compete. 

  • High Visibility in the Marketplace – Search engine rank is key to the success of retail affiliated websites. CO206 implements a strategic mix of search engine optimization (SEO) tactics that are utilized to improve the website’s search engine rank.  These tactics have been greatly successful, resulting in the establishment of a highly visible site in the marketplace that generates a significant volume of traffic, two thirds of which is generated organically.  CO206’s high visibility in the market relative to other sites that provide similar services affords the Company a significant competitive advantage.

  • Large Volume of Unique Content – The Company's site is rich with unique content that has been developed over the site’s nine year lifespan.  This creates value for site visitors while simultaneously boosting the site's strength and rank in the search engines.

  • Industry Growth Potential – The online audiobook industry is still in the early stages of development.  As technology continues to advance, the ability to both purchase and listen to audiobooks digitally is growing increasingly convenient for users, positioning the industry for significant future growth.
