Business Story

Why this business was started

I was interested in learning the eCommerce business model, specifically drop-shipping and online advertising and how it works. I have cats of my own that drew me to this niche. Also, this niche is very marketable to cat owners since products for pets are some of the most sold goods online.

The reason of selling this business

I have decided to sell this business as I have a full time job that takes up most of my time and am no longer able to dedicate enough time to run this online business successfully.

What's involved in running this business

What's involved in running this business includes marketing to customers, whether it be through our Instagram or Facebook page or any sorts of advertising(online, trade shows, etc). Fulfilling orders and providing customer service for returning and new customers through an email that would be provided upon purchase.

This business was founded: over 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 15 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would grow the business through affiliate marketing such as using social media influencers to promote your product. Grow an affiliate team under the business. Major brands and companies do this and it can work well. I would also utilize email marketing to the best of your capability and continue to get your average customer value up.

    Skills to have

    Some intermediate Facebook Ads knowledge would be helpful but it is not necessarily needed unless you want to continue to grow your email list and sales revenue. I will give you my full email list of cold, warm, and hot website visitors and customers.

I am a fourth year student at a university college where I have found school to take up a large portion of my time. I am getting closed to the end of my university education so I need to make sure I finish out strong, thus why I am selling this store, website, and brand.
