Business Story

Why this business was started

This is a dropshipping store that produces $17k monthly revenue and $8k net profit without any advertising spend. Traffic is top 1% consistently. We have over 52,000 subscribers and 10,950 ambassadors/models and over 62k followers on Instagram.

We decide to start this business to make a profits on eCommerce. We researched many niches and found that the top selling Shopify stores were in the Women's fashion Niche. So we chose this niche and began with the Free plus Shipping model where you make money on the shipping and up sells and non free items. This exploded as we learned how to master it and automate it WITHOUT any advertising. It is now ready to be taken to the next level through traditional marketing strategies without interrupting then passive income that comes in monthly from the free plus shipping model.

The reason of selling this business

So you might be wondering at this point why I am selling such a successful business. It was a tough decision to make as to whether or not I should hold on to the store. Long story short, I do not have the skillsets such as Facebook advertsing and Google Adwords and email marketing to really scale this. And I have long term business goals in mind and in order to obtain them I need to let some things go. This store being one of them. This store has proven to be very profitable. However, it could be even more successful when in the hands of someone who can give it their all using the skillsets to scale it.

What's involved in running this business

It is a drop shipping business with products on AliExpress. Everything is automated through our Vas. Order Fulfillment is automated and takes approximately 15 minutes a day. Customer service is quick; average is answering to 7 to 10 emails / day. VAs handle all of this.

We have 2 Vas (brothers) that do the heavy lifting. They work approximately 8 hours a day seven days a week at $3 an hour. You really cannot find less expensive and more committed people. They love the store. Treat it as their own. And are honest, reliable and knowledgeable in Instagram, customer fulfillment, customer relations and even product selection.
