Business Story

Why this business was started

I noticed a gap in the photography market for Vintage goods. I began marketing camera straps but soon started selling higher ticket Backpacks and photographers really loved them. I knew I had something since the launch of this business. This store provided me a solid income for 2018 which was intended.

The reason of selling this business

Looking to start a new venture in consulting and digital advertising. I have learned a great deal of skills from E-commerce but I feel like I want to expand my business skills to others that need help scaling their businesses.

What's involved in running this business

The main tasks involved are running advertising campaigns, and updated social media every day/week. More product research is always doable as well. Every two days I check in with my supplier and simply pay for cost of goods. My VA & Supplier communicate with each-other leaving me free to do profit-producing activities.

Time to run this business: approximately 20 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Continuous collaborations with photographers to increase reach & establish more trust. My customers are frequent buyers. Discover unique camera straps, equipment, backpacks, or accessories and you're sure to find a few hot sellers. The Photography niche isn't marketed to with new products very often, so there is tons of room for growth and testing. Email marketing, blogging, SEO, can all be improved to dramatically increase sales. This store already receives organic sales from Google. Tons of potential.

    Skills to have

    Digital marketing skills even as a novice is suitable. The data accumulated is going to make targeting extremely easy. The pixel is seasoned to discover buyers in an instant. I'd say have a mindset of growing the business with determination and consistency and you'll see great results.
