Why this business was startedDeadToe.com was started to explore dropshipping in the Alternative, Goth, Punk, Occult and Steampunk clothing and accessory market. This is a great niche to continue to explore as it has less competition than typical fashion stores. This Shopify store uses the Shoptimized theme ($167 value) and offers substantial conversion features without additional costly apps. The site has several products ready to go but we suggest adding even more products based on what is popular or even change the entire product catalog if needed.
The reason of selling this businessDeadtoe.com has major potential but we do not have the time to dedicate to growing this project. This store can really take off in the right hands and we hope to find someone who can take what we started and run with it. We have received sales in the last month without advertising which means some of the social media and organic work we have done is starting to find traction. Would be a shame to not see it through.
What's involved in running this businessThe store is based around dropshipping. Currently we are using Dropified to manage this but you could also switch it over to Oberlo if preferred. As of now, we are not actively promoting the website but the more time you can dedicate to the store the more potential it has to succeed. To run this store you need to process any orders through Dropified and follow up with customers. Key areas to focus on are: Finding new products, refining current products, promoting the site on social media, enhancing product descriptions and titles to take advantage of organic search engine results.
Logo and branding assets
All images will be transferred to the new owner including any social media assets. The original brand assets such as the vector logo will also be transferred. The Shoptimized theme will also be transferred.
Social media accounts
Personal support after sale
Will be happy to help the new owner with the transition for 1 month after sale. Extended support after 1 month is also available as time permits.
Product photos are available but they are property of the dropshipper.
How to grow this businessWould start an Instagram account to help promote the store. Continue experimenting with ads on Facebook and Google. Test products to find the main winners and use them to drive more sales. Start building an email list.
Skills to haveJust general Shopify experience is all that is really needed. If you are not able to do the social media advertising you could hire this out to Upwork or Fiverr.
