Business Story

Why this business was started

The business was started as a general store but was soon pivoted into the highly specific barbershop niche. The Barbershop community is very large and global for which niche-specific accessories were not found elsewhere. Advertising for this niche was deemed easy due to Facebooks targeting options and the ability to grow a solid presence on Instagram.

The reason of selling this business

The main reason I've decided to sell this business I am currently 100% focused on a completely different venture, not e-commerce related. If I were really passionate about the Barbershop industry I think I might attempt to work on this project on the side but unfortunately I'm not really that into the area. When I have more time I'll definitely get into e-commerce again but most probably in a separate industry all together. I don't think it's a good idea to simply have this store sitting and waiting for me to work on it so I feel the most reasonable thing to do is to sell it and let someone else have a go with it instead.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would focus on growing traffic and strengthening the brand within the Barber & Stylist Communities. Working with strong and relevant IG influencers in the industry I'm sure would have some serious growth potential. Conversion rate is sitting steadily at about 2% which allows for secure revenue along with great upsell potential.

    Skills to have

    Basic drop-shipping skills required. Familiarity and knowledge of the Barbershop industry would be seen as a huge advantage when running this store. A Barber entrepreneur or anyone involved in the craft could have a very good eye when it comes to choosing the right way forward.
