Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business because I wanted to try a hand at owning and managing a business. I thought to begin this business because it seemed like it was going to be easy to make decent money on it. Plus I have always loved animals and so I wanted to start a business that had something to do about animals and I had felt that there were not enough pet product stores out there. I figured that I had a unique idea for this store and I wanted to see where I could take it.

The reason of selling this business

I am selling my business because I don't have the money to put into advertisements and because I feel like I am not giving this business the proper care that it deserves. I don't see being able to run advertisements any time soon and so there will be no sales generated either. I want to sell my business because I feel that someone will be able to bring this business up to new heights. I would want to put a lot more care and attention to the customers and the business, but unfortunately I am not able to.

What's involved in running this business

Running this business needs an upkeep on making sure products are still available through Oberlo and running advertisements. Fulfilling orders and customer support is also involved with this business. I have been replacing products to fit the unique niche that this business has too but that is not a priority in running the business. I would also invest time in generating a social media following. Social media platforms include all below and YouTube. The products are being drop-shipped from AliExpress and a relationship with the product sellers do not need to be involved.

Time to run this business: approximately 2 hours per week

Seller‘s Advice

How to grow this business

If I had the money for advertisements I would be advertising a lot and trying to grow the business to a much bigger scale. I would want to gain a bigger following on social media and an email list. After getting a good name I was planning on finding American products to replace the product list from China for a faster shipping time. I had also planned on using this business to help donate to non-profit organizations that had to do with animals.

Skills to have

One thing that I would like to mention is that I had several apps to help the store and so all of those goes with the store as well. I have been finding products from AliExpress to use for my product list and that has been working the best for me. I hope that the next owner would have a love for animals to maybe turn it into the business that I hoped it would become. However it is not necessary for the next business owner to have a knowledge for animals. All of the products on the store have been chosen out of research for what pet parents want/need.
