  SWOT Of The Business
 STRENGHTS Work from home. Excellent reputation build up over nearly 20 years with hotels and tourist destinations, advertisers and repeat clients. Regular interaction with hotels by agents replenishing cards, ensures goodwill.
 WEAKNESSES Printed matter may be seen as not Eco friendly, but when tourists are looking for something to do, a small card which fits into the wallet, is better than a folding brochure which will soon be discarded.
 OPPORTUNITIES Tourism is once again increasing with the weaker rand and the the relaxation of the strict tourist visa requirements. Further marketing in the Gauteng area to increase sales and expansion in to other areas.
 THREATS Any threat to tourism can affect the business, but as tourism is seen as a prime growth area, this is unlikely. Complacency and neglecting to control agent performance in relation to replenishment of cards, could diminish the effectiveness of the platform and result in loss of advertisers.
Why is this a good business Well established, easy to operate from home, with flexible hours. Good return on investment and good client base. Most of the routine work is subcontracted out but could be carried out personally in one province, if buyer is located in the right area.
Why is the owner selling it? Retirement looms and the desire to travel the country before settling in the Cape to be near family.
