Business Story

Why this business was started

We decided to start the business as back in the time there were not many great options when it came to more simpler and unique phone cases. We did not like the common ones we would see everywhere so we decided on making our own more suited to the younger market and people like us, with unique designs we knew people would love.

The reason of selling this business

We decided to put the business up for sale simply due to us not having the time to work on it. Although one doesn't need to put in a lot of time to make this business thrive, it was more time than we can afford due to our busy lives and other responsibilities. We know with the right owner, due to already having everything in place, they can really take this company to a way larger scale.

What's involved in running this business

The main aspects that are involved in this business are just managing its social media accounts, working with influencers to get our products out to them, fulfilling the orders, and either working with freelance designers for new designs or finding designs yourself that you want to incorporate onto the products.

This business was founded: over 4 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

Description

General description

Our business started in 2012, with the creation of our instagram account, and since then we have always worked to provide people with very stylish and unique phone cases for their devices. Due to demand we opened up our shopify store around 2015 and from there it took off. We used to originally produce and ship out our products from a small office in Los Angeles, but we outgrew that and switch to a fulfillment company, making the hours needed to be put in to run the store a lot less as there is now a third party company providing better overall products and fulfilling all the packaging and shipping. Unfortunately, we have now reached a stage where our other responsibilities have surpassed our store and we can no longer provide it with the necessary time it requires. We know our store with the right owner still has potential to grow much larger than the scale we got it too, but unfortunately we simply don't have the time for that. we want to see our small brand grow to a huge scale so therefore we are going to provide the new owner with all the resources they need to prosper. The sale will include all our social media accounts (which alone are worth the purchase price), domains, our resources (such as templates and other things we purchased throughout the year), our connections with distributers and our fulfillment companies, our relationships and campaigns with social media influencers, and just about everything else that the company needs to operate. We will also try to personally help the new owner in any way possible and answer all questions they need throughout the transition process and down the line. This company is nothing like those dropshipping stores you see and actually has an established presence within its market with potential to grow a lot bigger than even we can imagine.

Why should someone buy this store?

Someone should buy this store because it's more than just a shopify store, it is an entire company you are purchasing with the potential to grow exponentially with the right time put into it. With this purchase you are getting more than just a shopify store but a brand, with all its social media accounts, connections, and years of work for a fraction of the cost it took us to develop it for and for a cost that is significantly less that what it will take anybody else trying to develop something similar.

How can the future owner improve the business?

The future owner can improve the store by really just putting more time into it. More time towards finding new designs and working with influencers on multiple platforms is really what will take this brand over the top.

What work have you put into the store?

We have put in over 7 years of hard work within developing this brand and store. We have spent years trying to perfect our campaigns and products to find the most efficient way to operate the business.
