Why this business was started
This business was started in July of 2020, months after the pandemic shutdown jobs globally. I started this business knowing home and kitchen products were going to be sought after. I added a different style to kitchenware as I wanted to target a more niche audience and connect with them. As the stores ads quickly got to many customers worldwide, the orders and following began to come fast. I started with a low number of products as I wanted to focus on putting out a simple and high quality collection. Home and kitchenware products have many pros when selling. It does not need to have a correct size for a customer, you do not need to worry about electronics not working, there is a large variety of product options for buyers to choose from, they have a high market value, and they solve a problem. This store has a lot of potential and will only continue to grow.
The reason of selling this business
Due to my business partner and I having a conflict of interest and priorities, we have decided to put this store for sale. With the amount of time and money being spent in other projects that we are involved in, we realized that this business had the potential to hit large numbers and did not want to see it go to waste. After a long discussion we have decided it would be in our best interest to put up the business for sale in hopes to see someone focus 100% of their time into expanding what we have already created. With the store being built and converting, the workload that requires the most involvement would be expanding the stores products and collections, while running and expanding into other forms of advertising and marketing. The business currently has a flow, as we a customer support assistant managing all emails and messages, while communicating with the fulfillment team.
What's involved in running this business
For the new Owner to continue to build and expand this business they will need to spend most of their time creating different forms of marketing and connections, while continuing to grow the stores product options and collections. I have built a flow that allows for easy work management. The fulfillment team manages all orders, supplying the customer with a tracking number and shipping the order. There are no set fees or costs that come with the fulfillment team. The only payments required are for the cost and shipping of orders that is shown in a detailed invoice. The Customer Support Assistant manages all emails and forms of social media messaging, as well as communicating with the fulfillment team to manage any questions or concerns about orders. The Customer Support Assistant has an hourly wage of $5 usd and as stated in the Employee Cost section, the average cost per month is $150 usd. This gives the Owner time to thoroughly focus on the most important aspects of the business marketing, store research, and financial analytics.

How to grow this business
The store is a highly converted and branded store. As the social media presence grows over 10,000 engaged followers on instagram and obtains a high percentage of all organic traffic and conversions we get to the store, I would continue to build this platform and connect with influencers and promoters. I have had many high level verified influencers reach out to our accounts via email or social media in hopes to create a collaboration. With the lack of time spent in that aspect, I would focus greatly on building organic growth through other accounts that have the same presence as this brand. I would continue to use and grow the revenue using facebook and/or google ads bring high level traffic and engagement to the store. As we approach holiday season there is no better time to promote and obtain a high amount of sales.
Skills to have
I would recommend the new owner have an understanding of all categories in Shopify. Including analytics, marketing apps, product setups, and order details. A key to our success has been through Facebook ads, this is highly recommended for the owner to have an understanding and knowledge. Social Media navigation and creativity. Lastly customer service and team communication.
