Why this business was started
I love all things that deal with boards so naturally creating a board or surf store fit. I loved the designs and vibes of all the surf stores I have been in and a part of and i wanted to create something of my own. I loved the designs and creation process and wanted to always get into apparel and found my calling in surf style apparel.
The reason of selling this business
I am selling my business because I would really like to see it grow and i do not have the funds to make that happen right now.
What's involved in running this business
Daily social media running and contact, making sure orders are fulfilled correctly and creating logos and designs for more tees and apparel.
A small clothing label started in October of 2016. Based in South Australia but has shipped orders worldwide. The brand had a great start with some very big days which generated almost $2000 in sales. The label is a surf inspired brand based around the beach and aimed at surfers and those that enjoy the beach. The process is very hands-off buy using Printful it allows you to take almost no part in the process. When a customer orders, Printful will be alerted and then create and ship that order directly to their address. This means it is great if you don't have the money for ordering in big bulk stock and enjoy relaxing and watching sales come in. There are many unique designs included for this company, its its own brand.
Why should someone buy this store?
Someone should buy this label as it has lots of potential and interest, i no longer have enough time due to study, college, work, and a marriage coming up soon. Instagram has gained over 4100 organic followers with over 400 active for each post. If you enjoy surf lifestyle but dont want to start from scratch, this is a great option, its a company built and ready to go with its own label.
How can the future owner improve the business?
The future owner can improve the business by putting more money into it and working harder to gain customers. Social media plays a huge part and by gaining more followers on platforms such as Instagram and Facebook the brand should gain much more attention than its current state.
What work have you put into the store?
I have put lots of work into the brand, at the start i bought out lots of stock in bulk however this cost way too much so i have since sold that off at markets and moved completely and solely online. The store is already set up and ready to go, on purchase you won't have to change anything to get it back up and running. I put in about 3-4 hours into the business a week creating designs and logos for t-shirts and designs all included with the purchase. It has pre-built logos and designs and everything you see in the store is yours to own, (brand, logo, designs.)
