Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business to test how many sales I would be able to drive via Instagram. I primarily work on Instagram and the sales came primarily from that platform. I know how to promote things pretty well and was able to use viral content to drive an extremely high amount of sales.

The reason of selling this business

I have decided to list this business for sale since I have a lot of other ventures and one big project coming up. This was a "test" for me and I never really intended to keep it running for multiple months, but did so because it was doing so well.

What's involved in running this business

There are 3 parts to this business: 1. Scheduling ads on Instagram media pages 2. Answering customer emails 3. Sending the exported orders to the supplier

  1. This part is extremely simple. I have a list on excel of all the pages we have ever used for advertising and I will also ad "potential" advertisers to the list for you. You pay them, use the content and template we used previously and they will promote the website. (about 10 minutes a day)

  2. This part takes the most work since about 30 customers email in daily about updates on their order. We have templates that we use on gmail to respond to everyone which streamlines the process a bit. (about 20 mins a day)

  3. This is the simplest aspect to this dropshipping business. We used to use Aliexpress and place orders individually, but we then worked with the supplier to do orders in bulk via excel sheets. So whether you have 100 or 3000 orders in a day, they will sort it all out for you and all you do is export the orders and import the tracking sheet. (10 mins a day)

This business was founded: about 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would personally focus on getting as much social media exposure as possible. The website is optimized to convert visitors and the more visitors you get, the more emails and sales you get. I would potentially look into buying straws in bulk and selling them via the US to make shipping times and customer satisfaction greater.

    Skills to have

    Basic marketing skills on social media or experience in Facebook ads would be required t keep it running like it has been!
