Why this business was started
We wanted to create a vibrant and fresh look to the baby clothing market. With original prints and designs, this business has grown in reputation as a wholesome family run baby store. Its a very rewarding process, as long as you are willing to put the time and effort in to make it work.
The reason of selling this business
We have decided to sell the business due to too many other projects. We feel that the business requires more attention than we can currently give it. But it is a nice business for some wanting to learn the ropes. Ecommerce is an ever-growing industry, so everything here is already setup and ready to go.
What's involved in running this business
This business is fully hands on, luckily we have very good connections with UK manufacturers who only use the highest quality materials. They are very easy to deal with and full details will be provided once the exchange has been completed.
Main tasks to keep up with our social media accounts, day to day messaging. Answering customer emails. Packing sold items and posting via Royal Mail but always good to seek out the best postage prices around.
Posting on Instagram is important but not the only way to create traffic. We also have a blog attached but not added too much to that of late. But each post does create some very useful traffic.
As stated, we have several contacts with Instagram influencers, mainly micro influencers who have a large following of mums on Instagram.
We also have a great Pinterest account that we will also transfer over to the potential buyer of this wonderful baby business.
The lucky owners will have a tremendous amount of top-quality high-end stock. So, no need to outsource any new items, the potential buyers can hit the ground running.
We are already setup on Google shopping, Facebook shopping and Instagram shopping too. Lots of different avenues to work along...

How to grow this business
Lots of room for expansion with various product ranges covering nursery items, such as bedding, duvet covers. There has not been too much use of advertsing for this store, which always gives plenty for potential with Google Ads & Facebook advertising.
We have tested several adverts via Facebook and Instagram but no major numbers, with some real investment it would really take off.
Skills to have
Not particularly, just lots of enthusiasm and time to concentrate on the marketing aspect of the business. Be willing to spend time learning social media marketing, and Instagram mainly.
We can suggest where to locate designers and programmers. We have several contacts with reliable proven backgrounds.
