Business Story

Why this business was started

I really wanted to build an e-commerce store and be an e-commerce entrepreneur. When I was researching products I looked into essential oils and then came across beard oil. When I dug into my research deeper I realized that beard oil started to trend in google searches the past few years and thought this would be a perfect idea.

The reason of selling this business

As mentioned above I do a lot of other things and I just don't have the time to give this business the focus and time it needs to be successful and grow. I wish I did. The numbers already show so much potential for growth.

What's involved in running this business

I think that customer service and marketing will the two important things to run when purchasing this business. Label printing, shipping, and the actual product are all shipped and sold from my drop shipping company based out of Utah. They are excellent and already have the labels printed and ready to go. Once this business is transferred over then you can start selling right away.

This business was founded: about 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

    • Suppliers

      The supplier is a Vet owned company out of Utah. They are really amazing to work with. With 80 orders I have never had an issue with them. They usually ship the day of the order of the next day. They preprint all the labels so they are ready to rock and roll as soon as you purchase the site. Also, the beard oil labels (only) are from shutterstock so once you start making a huge profit off the bottles you may just want to buy a license from them to use pictures in large quantities. It's just a one time fee, maybe $100 or so. The beard balm and the vitamin labels I created so you wouldn't need an extra license for those.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    There is so much potential for this store to grow into something huge. I like to start with marketing the beard oil sample packs so that the customer could sample all of the scents. Usually they would come back about 2 weeks later and buy a larger bottle of their favorite scent. After a customer comes back, they will usually return within a few months to buy their scent again. That is what is magic about beard oil is that the customer eventually will run out and come back for more. The product is of super high quality and the labels look amazing. They are well packaged and usually shipped out the same day by my drop shipping team in Utah.

    Skills to have

    I would suggest that you be knowledgable on facial hair. I am a woman and just don't know anything about beards, personally. That was a real struggle for me to find the passion behind what I was selling. I think that if I had a beard and used beard oil then this would be such a perfect product for me to sell, obviously.

    I am a professional marketer who likes to build e-commerce websites on the side. I spend full time in digital marketing in healthcare and built this shop with the intention of running it on the side. I am also an artist, designer, and content writer. Unfortunately I just don't have the time to commit to my beard oil shop. It has amazing potential and the drop shipping company that I work with is amazing.
