Business Story

Why this business was started

TAKING LISTING DOWN JANUARY 20TH IF NOT SOLD BY THEN! Having taken the daunting step of starting my first online business over 5 years ago I was asked by a friend to show him the ropes and introduce him to what it was like to set up and run an online business. He wanted to be able to step out of his 9-5 job as an engineer and into a life where he could become his own boss. Giving him the freedom to be able to work wherever he wanted and whenever he wanted. This is what we are led to believe eCommerce and drop shipping is all about are we not?

So together we created Emerald Seaside as a learning tool so that he could look over my shoulder as we grew the business together. However like so many before him, he soon realized that the lifestyle and freedom I had created for myself and my family was created through bad experiences, long nights, and an unwavering dedication to my pursuit of a better life for those around me. That was even before he realized the cost of starting an online business with the $$$$’s it takes to get to the stores current stage.

Unfortunately for him he is still looking for that freedom he so dearly craves as he wasn’t willing to put in the hard work that is required to get the business to a point where you are able to take that step back.

So if you are sick of struggling along trying to make an online business whilst wasting money on Facebook ads? Then this business is for you. The money you will save by investing in a store that has received thousands of dollars in testing and investment will not only save you money in the short term but it also frees up the time it takes to get to that stage! and as they say "time is money"

The future potential for this store is huge as it was started by utilizing a hugely unsaturated traffic source. Whilst so many online business entrepreneurs waste their money running expensive Facebook ads you can continue to gain highly targeted buyer data from a traffic source that offers <$2 CPMs! There is no longer a need to give up on your dream of becoming an internet entrepreneur so you can get the freedom and lifestyle you crave.

If you ever wanted to try out drop-shipping with Shopify, this is your chance! This website has all the necessary tools built in for your instant success because all the hard work has already been done for you!

I shall warn you now that this store is not a flash in the pan and has been set up as a branded business with a presence which is not about quick product testing and quick scaling!

The stores website features 1. High quality logos and branding across multiple platforms. 2. Automatic optimized abandonment sequences ($5350 was recovered). 3. Automated unique email capture system. 4. Optimized checkouts for smoother faster purchases.

Assets included in the sale: $80,300.00- Shopify Store Valuation. Email list of 4500 subscribers acquired using an discount email capture. Domain name: emeraldseaside.com (GoDaddy Appraisals). Logos & variations, custom seasonal banners, promotional homepage banners. Customized theme files for the existing stores theme. All files for current customized video ad creatives over 40 supplied at the time of listing. Branded customized packaging used by the stores supplier.

Total business value: $90,000 built and grown over the last 11 months.

I would however like to add that around 22% of all sales are from organic/returning customers this is due to the nature of the stores traffic.

All order that appear to be unfulfilled have been fulfilled through Oberlo or others are bugged where it says they were unfulfilled but they have been and everything has been taken care of up to date.

The reason of selling this business

To put it simply, I do not currently have the time to give the business what it needs and deserves. I am involved in other ventures that are taking up nearly all of my time so I have found it increasingly difficult to make time to continue growing the brand. There just aren't enough hours in the day!

I had however initially decided to let this store tick over receiving organic sales whilst allowing my VA (contracted for 10hrs a week, but you can handle this yourself to save $360 a month) to handle all customer support whilst taking the profit at the end of the month. Unfortunately that just isn't my style and I cannot allow the store to gradually deteriorate into nothing like so many Shopify stores do! I would much rather sell the store to somebody who has the passion and enthusiasm to make the most of their own online business. This way I know that a business I created from scratch is allowing somebody else to receive an additional or primary income into their lives.

What's involved in running this business

Fulfilling orders- a few clicks daily via a designated store app. For continued growth- Product research and uploads. New Ad creatives- Either video (better performance) or highly engaging 2:3 images. Customized landing pages- Creating customized landing pages for high potential products. This isn't done for all products.

This business was founded: over 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 7 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    Skills to have

    The store is actually very beginner friendly due to the simple organic nature of the store. It will continue making money whilst giving you time to brush up on any knowledge gaps you might need so that you can make the most on your investment. This store will therefore make you money from day 1! I am happy to guide you through the whole process that I have used to bring in this consistent passive income! As I have mentioned previously the store utilities an untapped traffic source that there is very little information regarding but I am happy to teach my processes to you once the sale is completed.
