Why this business was started
I was working on another business but wanted to supplement my income while growing that business.
E-commerce, particularly in health and beauty is great because it is easy to market via channels like social media.
The website www.charcoalbeauty.com ranks #1 for searches of trending "charcoal beauty" products. With a growing social media presence and email subscribers, there is an opportunity to dominate a hot niche.
The reason of selling this business
I am selling to fully focus my time on my other business, which requires full-time efforts and investments. The store is listed at a major discount to the Shopify valuation of $118,920.
I have not been able to put much time into managing the business given these commitments. Thus, I would like to hand the business over to someone who can grow Charcoal Beauty into a strong brand, continue to provide great customer service and perhaps pursue opportunities such as private labeling.
An as an added benefit, the monthly Shopify Plan has been paid in advance through the end of January 2020, a savings of $79 each month.
What's involved in running this business
The store is perfect for a first-time business owner as it is still small enough to be maintained by one person. Some ongoing activities include:
Marketing: With over 16k followers on Instagram and almost 10K on facebook, a new owner can continue building organic traffic and market to new customers to build an even stronger following for the in-demand activated charcoal product niche. Regular social media posts, advertising, promoting through influencers should drive demand. The owner can also leverage over 200,000 email subscribers to build sales, share updates and introduce new products.
Managing supply chain and order fulfillment: The owner can also strengthen relationships with drop shipping suppliers and explore the private label route to strengthen the brand and fulfillment process.
Others activities include store optimization and customer service.
