Description

General description

This is a one of a kind business that is for sale on Shopify Exchange. This is an extremely niche business that caters to the transportation industry. We are very well known within this industry, have virtually no competitors, and generate nearly all of our revenue with literally no advertising expenses; it's all organic, sourced directly from our social media channels. The business sells apparel and gifts (stickers, hats, mugs, artwork, etc) related to the industry, and we are primarily based on social media, where we have multiple platforms that cater to a fan-base that spans a very diverse demographic across the globe. Our pages have cultivated a massive following that has earned us a very favorable and distinct reputation within our industry. We have been featured in many major publications over the years, and have maintained a very loyal following that continues to grow each hour.

The store relies on drop-shipping and on-demand printing, so you really don't have to do anything with respect to fulfillment. The only thing that is required is posting on social media and continuing to drive traffic to the store. Many of the customers advertise FOR this store by sharing images of themselves in our clothing. Nearly all of the content that you need to share to continue the traffic is generated by the fans themselves, i.e., you don't have to be creative or special or even well informed of the industry, you just have to post. For someone who is particularly good at social media (Instagram, Facebook, etc), this store could be a dream come true.

This is primary a drop-ship (on-demand print) store. Our printers and suppliers are trusted and make quality products. Even after thousands of sales, we have had virtually no quality control issues, ever, and returns are extremely rare. We have no physical inventory: everything is drop-shipped after being printed by our suppliers.

This store also owns a number of intellectual property rights: copyrights/trademarks related to the industry, some of which are extremely well known within the industry. The buyer will get the full rights to all of these.

You will also get our mailing is of ~16,000 very loyal fans (many who have purchased from us before), and our social media counts, which total almost 400,000 followers, as well as all of our associated domain names, e-mail addresses, etc.

Our social media continues to grow (organically) each day. As of this writing, each week, our social media channels grow by approximately 1200 fans.

Why should someone buy this store?

If you're looking for a store that is very easy to run and requires very little expenses to maintain, this is the store for you. This store also carries massive influence within our industry, and you can easily become a trend setter for what the next biggest thing is. If you like interacting with a very passionate industry, this could be the store for you. There is a lot of growth potential within this store and this industry.

How can the future owner improve the business?

Continue to grow the social channels, and continue to use social media and photo/video to expand upon the very visual component of this store. Would also recommend getting into more serious advertising ventures, which could yield very impressive results for the dedicated entrepreneur. Continue to partner with other large social media sites, and perhaps offer incentive/cross-promotion in order to further increase the social appeal and organic spread of the business.

What work have you put into the store?

This store is the cultivation of years of hard work after building an organic, real following of people from social media; all from scratch. Thousands of hours have been spent hyping up our products, getting the store built, sharing it all over social media, and then re-sharing posts and positive experiences of our fans. We have built very good relationships with a number of well known companies throughout our industry, and they respect us as being a very creative force in the industry. We have numerous copyrights and trademarks, as well as branding (logos, names, uses, etc) that will be yours. We also have hashtags that have been associated with our store; very few online stores today can say that. At this point, the store largely runs itself. The only thing required is to post to the social channels every so often, which cultivates more organic flow of traffic into the page.

Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    The best thing to do is to continue to build the social media channels. The only reason we are selling this is because we are all too busy trying to build other businesses. If the buyer continues to cater to this very niche and unique industry, this store will continue to be profitable for years to come; the growth potential is very real.

    Skills to have

    An understanding of social media and what is hot and trending. Nearly all of our traffic comes from social media, so being able to navigate it and understand it's users is important.
