Why this business was started
I wanted to get into dropshipping because I love marketing. I thought the best route was to buy a store that already has had success. I wanted to skip the building phase and just jump right into it with a store that made over $920,000 in sales. Dropshipping is a business method that makes a lot of money and I wanted a piece of that pie. I should have started off small and figured out I really dont like.
The reason of selling this business
I thought I'd love this business model but I was wrong. I bought the store thinking this was the best path for me. I think I overpaid so I just want to recoup some of the money. I am not a paid ads type of guy. I really dont want to deal with that part of marketing. I like working alone and having this store would mean I would be forced with working with other.
This store is not for anyone who does not have the time to work on her. The store is not for anyone not disciplined or that does not have the right mindset.

Logo and branding assetsEverything using the brand name will be transfered. I am not allowed to give you the login unless you pay for the store. During the selling process, I will give the buyer a staff account to the Shopify store, which then the Exchange Market team will transfer the ownership over to you when the sale is finalized.
Personal support after saleI am limited to what I can provide as I didn't do anything with the store. I can provide help with anything I've learned with dropshipping. I can provide 1 hour of help per week for the first month and then 30 mins of help per week the second month. I can reply to 2 emails per day of about 1000 words each.

How to grow this business
Use FB ads.
I would build the brand further using Instagram. I would post content 3 times a day. On Day A I'd post 3 images of my products, Day B I'd post 3 images of customer taken-pictures and on Day C I'd post 3 viral niche videos(this way the product images would be seen by the traffic from the viral videos). I'd figure out what hashtags my competitors use and mimic a similar strategy. I would basically take the my top 5 competitors and see what I like what they are doing and do the same(obviously improved version).
I'd start a blog and would find micro bloggers to write articles on their ideas of whats hot right now and blog those in my blog. Then write blogs on comparing 5 of my items to each other with links to each item. This would help with SEO.
Skills to have
Know how to figure out how competitors are making their sale, as to what channels of ads they are using and duplicate and improve. This could be found out by using SimilarWeb.
Figure out how to find virtual assistants, I have a course on this for you, if you want it.
How to run FB ads
Please have enough money for these ads or you'll be in the same situation as me.
How to pick winning products and how to find them, which I can help with.
How to write copy that is different and helpful. I can help too because I've learned this from a course.
Email Marketing and Digital Marketing are helpful skills.
