Business Story

Why this business was started

I decided to start this business because I was very interested in ecommerce. It has always been my dream, that's when I decided to start EssentialStraw. After watching alot of videos on YouTube about starting up a Shopify store, I started this website, and I found a product that has proven to sell well and benefits our planet at the same time, that's when I decided to sell Reusable Straws. My dream since I was a teenager was always to have an e-commerce shop and earn money online, instead of going to another company working for them so that their boss can earn all the profit instead of me.

The reason of selling this business

I am selling my business because I don't really have the time for it anymore, I got a really good job offering at a company I've always wanted to be working for.

What's involved in running this business

What's involved in running this business is simply Facebook Ads and ordering products through Oberlo. Also a small bit of customer service if you do not decide to hire a VA for it.

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

Other details about profit: Profit after product costs on Oberlo is $3031 USD. After Facebook ads it leaves you with around $1000 in profit, in 1 month. I haven't even been scaling this store properly yet and a profit of $1000 is amazing. The store has been up and running since last summer, however I was a total newbie at Facebook Ads which resulted in many bad adsets and money being wasted. However, I gave it a try again in the end of 2018/beginning of 2019 which left me with amazing results. That's why the stats of this store will look 'bad', but looking at this recent month it is definitely a very promising store.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would scale the business using Facebook Ads, especially with LookAlike Audiences which are very powerful and easy to control. In the right hands this business could be scaled very hard.

    Skills to have

    You have to be familiar with Facebook Ads and Oberlo.
