Why this business was started
It’s simple. I started this business to make money. I started since I wanted another income stream and also wanted to gain more experience with running ads, copy writing, and learning the fundamentals of digital marketing. I chose a general store because it allows you to test and use any product that can make you money. A general store allowed me to run multiple completely different products on the same store, rather than have to create and manage a new store for each. It allows you to also get results fast.
I’ll provide you with the video ads and ad copy, everything is already set up I’m selling it for $3000, $1800 under market value. Fantastic traffic. Site has gotten over 27,000 of views in the past few months. Is Search Engine Optimized and has automatic email and SMS abandoned cart followup.
There’s 0 risk in acquiring this business. I’m selling it for dirt cheap since I want to focus on my other business more profitable business and don’t want to have to spend weeks haggling and finding a buyer. You could buy it for $3000 and flip it for $4,800 immediately if that was your choice, and get my training for free in the process.
The reason of selling this business
The reason why I decided to sell my business started with the fact that I suddenly had a lot of bugs with Facebook. A few months ago, Facebook had a massive UI update and it bugged out a lot of ad accounts. Mine was one that was affected and it made it so that my ads were off half the time, essentially cutting my profits in half and making it so that my ads couldn’t fully optimize. Facebook contacted me and said that the only thing I could do is wait it out until they’re able to fix it, so that’s exactly what I did.
In the meantime, as I was waiting for bugs to be resolved, I started a social media marketing agency and have been having great success with that. I decided that it would be more productive for me to just sell the store and focus on my agency instead of having to spend the few amount of hours it takes a week to manage the store.
What's involved in running this business
There’s not much involved with running this business. After you get the ads set up, all you need to do is fulfill the orders that you get (takes minutes via oberlo, an app) and manage your ads everyday, which as I’m about to teach you, takes 5 minutes. If you’re testing a new product down the line, there’s product research, copy writing, and creating the video ad and landing page, but all of that is either extremely simple or can be outsourced for pennies on the dollar.
