Business Story

Why this business was started

I started the business when I heard it was possible to dropship a quality generator at a great value. My intention is to build out the brand and sell other camp-related products and apparel.

The reason of selling this business

I am trying to raise money to purchase a home within this very volatile market. I do not necessarily wish to sell the business, however is the most valuable thing I own.

What's involved in running this business

I have the SEO built up well so all I have to do is check my orders each morning. Once the funds clear to my account I wire money to the manufacturer and create the purchase orders. It is a very simple process.

This business was founded: about 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

Other details about profit: I started the shop in late 2020 and it took some time to build the SEO. In February 2021 I had 20 orders. In March I had 30 (that is just generators, not including accessories). I've already had 13 orders in April. The amount of units sold depends heavily on weather. When there are freezes, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc., you will sell more generators. My profit per generator is anywhere from 150-250 per generator depending on the model. In March the total profit was about $5,500 and that is what the store should be doing with minimal marketing. The cost of business is minimal, my Shopify fees are about $30 per month. See included screenshot of March's profit.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would seek other outdoor/camp-related merchandise to offer through the store in order to build the catalogue. The SEO at this point is very strong for attracting buyers. A focus on building out the social media would go a long way as well.

    Skills to have

    Customer service and basic computer skills, such as the ability to wire money to the manufacturer when you receive an order. You'll need to create a purchase order that you will send to the manufacturer. I use Google Docs to create my purchase orders. All customer service from that point is provided by the manufacturer.

    I built this online store into a very successful venture in little time using almost no social media and very little advertising. What the store does have is a great name, a strong brand and excellent SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The store is poised to go much further with an owner who has the time to nurture the social media. I am basing my price on current revenue x's three years. I feel this is an amazing value as revenue will increase over the course of those three years. It is a very good investment for the right person.
