Business Story

Why this business was started

I decided to start this store as there was a clear opportunity to capitalize on the Fortnite Mobile app launch. The release of Apex Legends in September 2018 this holiday season should further drive sales. The store generated over $140k in sales and has the potential to do so again.

The reason of selling this business

Our store was exceedingly successful with the launch of the Fortnite mobile app launch and the revenue is recurring at around $1,000 a month with no traffic derived from paid advertising. However, I am busy running a media agency and thus have decided to sell this store.

What's involved in running this business

The entire website is already structured well for SEO and as our business name and URL contains the word “Royale”, we have been able to drive traffic to the website organically and generate sales. We have a strong relationship with our key supplier, who will continue to supply the new owner with high quality products. Our supplier is the only company with a product in our class. Our team is happy to assist the new owner on an ongoing basis with marketing requirements. We will also provide a VA to fulfill your orders.

This business was founded: about 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 2 hours per week

Description

General description

SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY (UPDATED MAY 10TH, 2019)

This is a niche based dropshipping store selling 6 products in the gaming niche. It has a custom theme made by a professional web designer and includes professional graphics as well as fully developed social media pages with large active followings (30k+ at the time of listing). The costs of the main product have been worked down every thousand orders with our supplier to ensure we have the absolute highest profit margins available. The store was made by a team of professionals in e-commerce and social media marketing. We're selling to resume main focus on our actual brands. We've done over $130k in revenue at 45% margins and would love for someone to take over what we've started and carry it to new heights. With Apex Legends mobile app set to release in September of 2019, I truly believe the sales will explode again. Even with minimal work and effort, the store is still in great condition. The store is in a great state and still profits $1k+ per month with no advertising. The store was valued by Shopify at $94,120 but I am looking for a quick and clean sale.

I will need proof of funds and we can get on a Skype call to discuss if you are serious about purchasing

Why should someone buy this store?

The store is excellent in every way. We've built a personal relationship with our supplier and are the only company with a product in our class that can afford to sell at a low price while still having great profit margins ($19 profit on the avg. order on a $30 main product). Everyone on our team came together from being experts in their own field/platform to create this store. Each piece of the store's processes (Instagram, Twitter, Emails, etc..) can be contracted out to our team member's following the sale of the store if the new owner so chooses. We're here to help! If the new owner chooses to contract the same team we've used, it will only take a total of about 2 hours a week to oversee the operations.

How can the future owner improve the business?

We have not fully expanded into Facebook as we were unable to find a dedicated FB Ads specialist. Our pixel has over 500k hits and is extremely developed and waiting to be put to use. Also, with the release of Apex Legends in September and Christmas this year, the new owner will be able to create campaigns around this for exponentially larger profits.

What work have you put into the store?

We've hired a professional graphic designer to create all of our logos & branding assets. Our site was created by a professional web designer to input custom code along with an e-commerce expert to guarantee the highest possible CVR and best possible customer journey. The content was all custom made by the marketing experts from within our team. We will gladly provide support on how to create future content, or offer our services to create the content at a later determined price. We've spent months building up the social pages through good content all focused on the product itself. We've also customized and integrated several apps that have been assisting us in our success.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would focus on driving traffic to the website again very soon. There is a very easy angle to latch onto the growth of Apex Legends once their mobile app releases in September (2019). That is the only missing step for this site. It is a great turnkey opportunity to someone that sees the value in a pre-built niche website with a good relationship with a USA supplier.

    Skills to have

    There is nothing 'specifically' that you should have, rather you should just have a good idea of how to run a Shopify store and have success in it. This is a very turnkey opportunity that is just waiting for the next big mobile game to do another burst of revenue.
