Business Story

Why this business was started

I was looking for a way to create a sustainable income, but that would also allow me to travel and work from anywhere in the world. This brand has allowed me to do exactly that. As a result of it being a completely digital and online business, this brand can be sold worldwide, and the buyer can earn in American Dollars

The reason of selling this business

I am looking to retire, although I love this brand, I feel it is time for me to move onto something else. This brand is now a well established, income earning business.

What's involved in running this business

Creating / adapting / selling sewing patterns. Dealing with client queries, one on one. Clients often have questions and someone who is excellent at customer service will do very well with this brand. Developing the brand into something more, considering AR patterns, and published pattern books. It is vitally important to stay on top of the market as the industry is currently growing at a phenomenal rate. Understanding your clients and being able to market to them via social media and regular newsletters is a must. If you can keep up with sending out regular newsletters, you will have a lot of return clients. I currently have +-500 email subscribers, and over 2000 Facebook Followers, and over 1,000 Instagram followers. However my Pinterest has the largest following, currently averaging over 60,000 views monthly, and hundreds of saves and pins from my site. This business is live with its own site through shopify, as well as an exceptionally successful store on etsy, both platforms will need to be well maintained. The figures shown in this posting only reflect my shopify store. In reality my sales average around $1500 per month, and is at least 90% profit, full access to both online stores will be handed over when I step away.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    This is already an established, income earning brand which can be taken so much further. The technological advances in digital sewing patterns are advancing at such a rate, and in order to grow the business successfully I would highly recommend the following: 1. Creating AR sewing pattern apps - I have already spoken to a developer and can refer you, AR sewing patterns are the future. You can start by adapting the current existing sewing patterns, half the work is already done. 2. Convert all existing patterns to layered patterns - I have started the process but it needs to be continued. 3. Update all the sewing patterns to include more plus sizes - the plus size sewing pattern market is currently the fastest growing. 4. Create and sell pattern books 5. Work on growing the YouTube channel - this is one area where I have lacked that can be vastly improved on to attract thousands more clients

    This brand can absolutely be transformed into an empire! It is best suited two a team of at least two people, who can dedicate themselves to the brand. It can be grown into a brand that earns up to $100,000 dollars per month, this is absolutely its potential, sadly I can't give it the attention it deserves to get it there.

    The possibilities to grow this business are endless, and it is possible to make 10 x if not 100 x what it is currently making, unfortunately I don't have the time to work on this business as much as it deserves as I have other companies that require my energy on a full time basis

    Skills to have

    Yes! - Thorough knowledge on creating and drafting sewing patterns, and fashion design. A unique skill to understanding garment construction. - Preferably CorelDraw - all my patterns have been created in CorelDraw and these files will be passed on to the buyer

    I am a sewing pattern designer and launched my own brand in 2011. I am also a serial entrepreneur. This particular business is my baby, pride and joy, I grew her from the ground up, one sewing pattern at a time, and she makes a pretty impressive monthly passive income, but the time has come for me to consider moving on.
