Why this business was started
We decided to start this business because we love sports cars and phones. We managed to combine these to niches into one product which is iPhone/Samsung phone cases reflecting sports cars passion. It is a very narrow niche that will help you find dedicated customers. The phone cases niche is expanding due to the intense competition between Apple and Samsung so there will be new phones released every year which is good for this business.
The reason of selling this business
We're selling because we don't have enough time to concentrate on the store anymore since we're out to grab or B.As. Wish us luck :) You may think the price is a bit high, but we spent tons of money to build our social media pages and experts to help us improve our theme. You might want to act fast because the social media pages needs someone to keep posting regularly before fans lose interest.
What's involved in running this business
1) Print on demand phone cases. We're using Printful fulfillment center (free) to take care of all upcoming orders. Also they provide awesome branding like custom notes, business cards and packing slips. You can put your own logo on the package and the AutoSwell logo looks clear and on point. 2) CMS PRO Page Builder ($9.99): this app is a must for secondary pages. Like our mission page is built with this app. It doesn't slow down the store but makes it live and clear. 3) Omnisend email marketing (free): we tried MailChimp and Campaign Monitor, but this app gets the job done easy and for free, and it does not slow your website. 4) Image Optimizer ($5): We're using this app because it's cheap and optimizes the newly uploaded images automatically. It boosted our page speed score. 5) Tracktor (free): track orders. 6) smart social login (free): create account using social media. 7) Shipping Rates Calculator Plus ($6.99): calculates and shows the shipping cost on the cart page and shows a map on which where the order is from. This app reduces the abandoned carts. 8) Sales Box ($9): This is the app we love the most. It shows delivery times and cost and whatever you like on the product page. it is highly recommended. 9) SEO All in one (free). 10) Product Reviews (free). 11) Kit (free).

A whole brand would exist over the next five years. With the number of followers increasing daily and the custom branding given by Printful, this business has potential.
Skills to have
We took care of all the theme's coding. We've spent hours and hours to boost the theme and increase the speed of the page while also keeping it awesome and classy. We want to make clear that we hadn't run any types of ads on this store. All the traffic came from social media and organic search. And we hadn't promoted any of the products yet, that's why we only had two orders. Imagine what would you do if you made couple of ads :D
