Business Story

Why this business was started

I spotted a huge gap in the market which i've taken advantage of and continue to do so. The industry all over the world works by taking an order, then building the computer and then shipping it and taking anything from 5 days to 12 days. Big companies and small companies are all the same. This meant if you needed a PC quickly you would need to buy a boxed computer which has it's [REDACTED] the time the box is sold it's usually an out dated model with months of windows updates waiting for the end user to do. A handful of companies setup ofering 3 - 5 models of PCs for next day delivery which you can't customise and very limited choice. The industry needed to change and offer a big choice with next day delivery.

The reason of selling this business

I own another business that requires more of my time so it's time to focus on one business.

What's involved in running this business

The business can be operated from anywhere in the world as it's all dropshipped with a special agreement with the manufacturer. The only work currently required is answering sales emails & replacing products on the website when stock changes.

Warranty and support is handled by the manufacturer.

I upload a CSV once a week to update prices. I spend 5 hours once a week adding new products based on what the manufacturer is offering and I check new sales emails once a day and reply back advising people which models are bested suited to there needs.

I have done some PPC for 1 to 2 months which had around 2% conversion rate.

When a payment is confirmed via shopify the manufacturer then takes the order and does everything after that.

I did not do anything to gain repeat business, no product or customer research. no emails, no seo and no social media...ideally a new owner should work on SEO and Social Media.

This business was founded: over 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 6 hours per week

Other details about profit: This is a very simple system to scale for profit. The manufacturer charges £10 per year warranty per unit which includes collect and return warranty and 12 months of technical support so you basically never need to speak to the customer. They charge £10 per unit delivery which includes packing and fedex next day. They charge £50 per unit to build and test each computer. In the admin system provided by the manufacturer you specify in one field the profit per unit which is currently set to £150 excluding VAT so after each unit is sold I make £80 + VAT. If you wanted you could set the profit figure to any amount and you can also set it diffently so for example £500 system could be £100 profit and £2000 system could be £200. I've just used a flat figure to make it simple but it's got room for bigger margins when you compare against other companies who take 2 weeks to ship it gives you an advantage.
