Business Story

Why this business was started

My normal profession of O&G consulting was slow so I added the store to learn a new business. I created a professional looking website and have developed a following on facebook.

The reason of selling this business

In order for this business to grow it will require a bigger advertising budget than I can afford. I'm at retirement age and I am read to devote more of my time to family.

What's involved in running this business

Using Shopify ad Oberlo the business is easy to run. The main tasks are finding new products to update the store and writing the copy for each product. Some time needs to be spent keeping up with advertising. I also have created a few videos to post on FB (no advertising fee for those unless you boost them).

This business was founded: over 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 4 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Due to the variety of products offered this store requires an advertising budget of at least $85 per day. With a solid advertising start this business could be expected to make $3-5k per month. Suppliers are generally set up through the Oberlo app, but some suppliers I may have found directly in Aliexpress. Supplier information is included in the Oberlo account which will be transferred with the store.

    Skills to have

    Patience and a commitment to an advertising budget. Facebook and Google are solid advertising platforms but do require a significant budget for a starter.
