Business Story

Why this business was started

I love the process of setting up new businesses and finding niches that need better, more modern online stores. This is a niche that has large margins and not a lot of competition, and I truly believe it is an excellent opportunity for someone to make theirs and enjoy the 'entrepreneur' lifestyle as they learn and grow the business.

The reason of selling this business

I am guilty of setting up too many businesses that I can't operate all at once. This just happens to be one that was put on the back burner and never reached its potential. This is honestly a plug and play solution if you are willing to put in the work to complete what I started, and I'll show you how. As a side note, I have never had a store be this successful before setting up any paid advertising, so take that for what it's worth.

What's involved in running this business

Adding new products and updating pricing, monitoring social media accounts and email marketing (already set up), setting up and tweaking ad campaigns on Google, Facebook, and Pinterest. Submitting orders to U.S. manufacturers who ship direct to your customers. This can mainly be done by email and everyone is responsive and courteous. You will start with good relationships all round.

Other details about profit: Please understand, the amount generated so far from this business is nothing compared to its potential. I have not yet run a single ad campaign for it. All the sales so far have been either through social media accounts or by simple SEO (people searching for the product type or brand name products that the business carries). There is very real potential to 10x this profit within a few months if you are willing to put in the time.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I never actually ran any transactional ads to this store. I got too caught up in setting up social media accounts and email marketing, and never got around to launching ad campaigns. To grow the store, I would use Google PLAs (Shopping tab), Facebook retargeting, and Pinterest promoted pins. I would also get to work on the Facebook page that already has over 11k followers, and start to leverage that into additional traffic and referrals. There is a lot of potential here, and I hope you can tell I am being sincere on that.

    Skills to have

    Understand how to operate Shopify, Facebook ads, Pinterest ads, and Google ads. Most of the graphic design and web development has been completed so you won't need to an expert in those areas.

    I'm the guy who spend $$$$ on drop shipping courses so you don't have to! Really though, I'm just a guy who loves working for himself and the process of setting up new businesses. I'm guilty of setting up more businesses than I can handle, so I'm listing two on Exchange that have been put on the back-burner. This store is a genuinely great opportunity if you're willing to put in the work. I'd rather it went to an owner with more time and resources who will nurture it and enjoy the experience.

    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.
