Business Story

Why this business was started

I started the business to learn about ecommerce, a personal interest in fitness and nutrition and I saw an opportunity to create something I hadn’t seen before. I have always loved going to the gym so saw this as a perfect business to start to combine a personal interest with business.

The reason of selling this business

Due to its success, my girlfriend and I can no longer continue with the business at its current pace as it is getting way too big for us to manage in the space we have in our home. We still fulfil all the orders ourselves from a spare room, whilst having full time jobs and other businesses. We are also planning to start a family soon which would impact on our time and space even further. We feel it would be best to sell at this point so that someone else can take it to the next level. This business is ready to go for anyone; you can still run this from your home part time and even better full time but progressing to a small warehouse/unit would capitalise on its current progress and easily increase order capacity.

This business would be perfect for anyone whose business may have been affected by the pandemic and that has warehouse/unit space and/or a workforce who can jump in immediately.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    There is so much this store can achieve! Simply having a team, warehouse and upping the ads would allow this to skyrocket, but there are also many other things that can boost sales:

    • More social media presence – competitions, engagement, more use of stories (we just don’t have enough time at the moment due to my full-time job)
    • SEO tweaks (there may be a lot more ways to boost organic reach)
    • The use of influencers
    • Increase ad spend
    • Utilise Facebook ads
    • Utilise a unit/warehouse and team

    Skills to have

    Not really, just the basic skills of customer service, work ethic and maybe some knowledge in creating images for the site.

    The beauty of this business is that the majority of it works for itself.

    Why use Exchange?

    Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores

    Verified listing data

    The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.

    Secure messaging platform

    You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.

    Encrypted payment capture

    Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.

    Take time to inspect the business

    Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.

    Safe store transfer

    When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
