Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business in 2017 when I noticed IG companies popping up all over the place in the state of Michigan. Most of them were selling t-shirts, and stickers and reposting outdoor photography in Michigan. I have really only been advertising in Michigan, but that was preference- the company could be a hit anywhere.

The reason of selling this business

I have started a new Service based business that does not require me to manage inventory. As a Consultant I have begun traveling and I cannot ship product from the road.

What's involved in running this business

Filling oders, shipping orders, and re-ordering inventory. I can connect you with my manufacturer, and would be happy to consult you on your first replenishment.

This business was founded: about 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 1 hour per week

Description

General description

Big Turnip Out-of-Doors Co has much potential for an individual with outdoor knowledge and advertising expertise. Camping hammocks are still a popular niche in the outdoor market, and a motivated individual would want to begin selling bug nets, tarps, and other hammock camping related necessities. A motivated buyer will also want to continue the blog, and release more videos on how to use a hammock.

Why should someone buy this store?

Excellent opportunity to connect with the outdoor community, as well as an opportunity to learn marketing, advertising, sourcing, and supply chain management.

How can the future owner improve the business?

Future owners will want to include a live-chat feature and include a FAQ. (I can help with the FAQ)

What work have you put into the store?

Log designs, Web layout, blog, sections, etc. The store also has a basic contact form and the blog has 5 articles.
