Business Story

Why this business was started

We wanted something we could run from anywhere. We have been in a pretty major transition in life and wanted something that would allow us to work from home. This fit the bill perfectly. Other than some trips to get supplies and mail things now and then, we could run this business from anywhere.

The reason of selling this business

We have a big opportunity to live in a place that we love and work another business there. It is a major undertaking, so running this business has had to take a back seat.

What's involved in running this business

Updating store with prices and sales, receiving and processing purchase orders, monitoring email and Shopify for new orders, when a new order arrives, the Seller creates a Product Order email for the supplier - followed by updating the order tracking number when applicable, on a monthly basis, the Seller adds, removes, modifies any monthly promotions or pricing.

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

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Seriously dive into Google Ads. Also, trade events (while not necessary) can provide massive bang for your buck when it comes to contacts and adding products to your line. New owner could look into GSA and another whole market opens up! Since we will no longer be a retailer for our current suppliers, we would have to remove the product photos. The buyer would then have to apply with the current suppliers in order to carry their products. Suppliers provide excellent product photos. Then it's just a matter of uploading the photos that the suppliers let you use.

    Skills to have

    Google Ads would be a great skill to to master. If you can dive into how to unlock traffic potential offered through Google Ads, this could be a valuable skill. Otherwise, general knowledge of products is a plus, but not necessary.
