Why this business was started
Over the past year we have grown our Instagram page to 420,000+ organic followers from scratch. As we grew, we started getting more and more requests for promoted posts, whereby advertisers would pay to promote their products. We would later come to know this as influencer marketing. Putting 2 an 2 together, we asked ourselves if these guys keep coming back and paying us more and more for these posts, surely they are making decent profit. After a ton of research and learning we started our Shopify store and no doubt it took off. And why wouldn't it, we have basically taken out the influencer cost of advertising, and get tons of free sales without spending a dime on advertising. To scale, we then took the free data (Video Views) and used it to create LLA's and retargeting campaigns with FB ads, giving a profit margin of around 50%. Genius isn't it? For the right marketer, they will know what a gold mine this is. Most posts get between 50,000 to 500,000 organic views, with the occasional ones reaching 1 million organic views.
The reason of selling this business
I am currently pursuing an MBA which is extremely time consuming. I figured i could work on the business whilst simultaneously getting the degree. But it is becoming too stressful and i cannot grow the business at the rate and efficiency i wish.
What's involved in running this business
In order to keep growing our Instagram following, regular posting and scheduling of content is required, perhaps 2-3 times a day. FB ads campaign creation and oversight every few days to ensure maximum profitability. Taking care of customer support and email marketing (all the flows have been set for you already), Our orders are automatically taken care of and fulfilled by our trusted long term supplier through a shopify app. You will have to communicate with them every now and then if you want to get quotes for new products, want to order on-hand inventory etc. We were able to scale up to $44,000 in just 15 days this month. Only a couple hours each day are needed to ensure the business is running smoothly as everything is already automated for you.

How to grow this business
Our instagram organic growth increases every day and with that, so does our brand presence. As we have started to scale up some of our products, we have had many personal influencers reaching out to us, offering to promote our products and offering brand collaborations. We have not had the time to tap into this yet, however, we believe this is where massive profit margins sit, as the advertising cost is exceptionally low compared to the revenue generated from these campaigns. It is how brands like Fashion Nova and MVMT have grown so fast. The main benefit of having such a large following on the brands Instagram account, is that the ideal influencers contact us, without us having to scout them out, which in itself can be a tedious task.
