Business Story

Why this business was started

I saw a gap in the market where nobody was selling several beauty devices in the same store. There were a lot of 1-product-stores but no one was selling a multitude of products that would allow you to buy everything you new for your own "at home spa". This is why we often get large orders well over $400 with several products at the same time. Our LTV is $149. Our AOV $131 Returning customer rate is 9.98% Facebook feedback score 3,9% (very high for a dropshipping store) Our Supplier takes care of the cost of all warranty claims. He also refurbishes all returned products and sends them out again for $3 + Shipping. All our products are shipped in custom white bags with the Dermatecc Logo on. This increases our Facebook feedback score significantly.

The reason of selling this business

I want to work more on my Youtube automation channels. And I don't feel as passionate about the store as I used to.

What's involved in running this business

  1. Fulfilling order
  2. Running advertising campaigns
  3. Making sure we don't run out of Product bags and Warranty slips.
  4. Buying stock to cover for the Chinese New year and other Chinese holidays where the factories close.
  5. Updating Instagram
  6. Product research (Done by our VA, Veronica Cobeng)

You can comfortably run this store with 3 hours of work a day (Or less). I have probably only worked on it 2-3 hours a day for the past year. Granted that some days I don't work on it at all and other days I work on it 10 hours.

This business was founded: about 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 14 hours per week

    • Suppliers

      Our supplier's name is Sam and is one of the most honest and trustworthy people I have ever worked with. One month he even lent us $8000 of his own money for an entire week to be able to stock up before the Black Friday sales started. He also has his own warehouse where he keeps our stock during the periods when we are not dropshipping. (Like the Chinese new year). The warehouse is located in Shenzhen, China and Sam is able to deliver our products to the US within 10-16 days and Europe 5-10 days. Our Supplier takes care of the cost of all warranty claims. He also refurbishes all returned products and sends them out again for $3 + Shipping.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would double down on Facebook ads since we are one of the few stores on Facebook that is allowed to sell on the platform without getting blocked for policy violations. I would introduce more products and try to sell more to people that want to open their own beauty salon, since they are the ones that are placing the largest orders. This would include adding more semi-professional devices. I'm quite bad at marketing so I have no doubt that someone better than me would be able to scale this to the moon.

    Skills to have

    You don't need any new skills if you decide to keep our Virtual assistant Veronica Cobeng. She is the one that writes all the copywriting and the info about how to use the products etc. We also have a dedicated shipping agent with all the knowledge of our business and the best shipping methods so it's not really anything new you have to learn.

    Joakim A.Current store owner
    My name is Joakim Andersson and I built and ran this store for 1.5 years but now I feel like moving on to something new. I have not ran any new ad campaigns in the past 4 months due to lack of time and interest but this store is good to go and is making a lot of money when it is up and running. There's no need to know anything about skin care in order to run this store since our wonderful Virtual Assistant, Veronica Cobeng has ha massive interest in Skin care and beauty and is writing all the copy that is needed for the products to sell.
