Business Story

Why this business was started

I was actually a user of the product before we decided to start selling it. I have always enjoyed making art, so I figured this would be an awesome new way to start making some long lasting pieces. I immediately fell in love with the machine and others kept telling me how much they liked the rugs I was making. The rug making community was also very upbeat and positive, so I enjoyed being a part of this group. We discovered that this product was gaining lots of attention on social media, but had a very limited amount of reliable vendors. The vendors available either had bad customer experiences or products on back order leaving many in the community very frustrated. Others in the community were constantly asking me where I got my gun when I posted my work to social media, so I figured this would be an amazing opportunity for me to become a retailer. We decided to test it out and were getting a strong amount of sales from day 1. Not only has this product been financially great for us, it has also help bring so many smiles to peoples' faces around the world. Customers love sending us their work and it is so nice knowing that we helped them in the process.

The reason of selling this business

I have been very busy lately with long work days and raising a family. While I would love to give this store the attention it needs, I am simply too worn out by the end of the day to keep up with demand and overall management. I want to make sure that the customers are properly being taken care of and this store is able to spread the joy of this product correctly. In addition, I was not expecting this store to grow so fast and I figured it could be a very worthwhile investment for someone else. This store will easily do 6 figures with the potential for 7 figures when the holidays come around. You will not find too many other assets with an ROI like this one, it just needs the necessary time and attention to continue its success.

What's involved in running this business

Running social media, running advertising campaigns, fulfilling orders, ordering from suppliers, and keeping up with customer service. It is not an overwhelming amount of tasks. I would expect to spend 3-4 hours a week keeping up with the business.

Other details about profit: We have really only had one full month (March) of the store running. We were able to generate $15,000 in revenue and around $5,000 in sales. For April, we are on track to do at least $20,000 in sales and $7,000-$8000 in profits. This is just the early stages and we can expect these numbers to grow exponentially. As of now, we have done $40,000 in sales in 3 months with only 2 months of running ads. There is still a lot more profit to be made.

    I would work on both paid and organic forms of marketing. Facebook, Instagram, Google, and Tik Toks ads are all great for this product. It has proven to capture a lot of attention from a wide variety of audiences. There is still so much room to keep on growing and gaining customer loyalty as the brand grows. We will provide you with a professionally done advertisement videos that have high conversion rates. We had these professionally made and will not find any other competitors using them. Email marketing has also proven to work very well for us and we gain new subscribers everyday. There is so much you can do with emails and they are now one of the best forms of marketing. We have an Instagram that has gained 1800 followers as well as providing many sales without having to spend money per lead. We have been featuring our customers work, so you will not have to worry about constantly creating original content. The community on Instagram is extremely passionate and kind. I would continue to grow this page and interact with the community as much as possible. This is a very niche product with a very strong community so we make sure that we provide them with the best products and service. There is so much opportunity to help bring this new hobby into peoples' lives.
