Business Story

Why this business was started

I founded this E-Commerce business as a part-time job to build practical business experience as a complement to my academic experiences and to improve my communication and negotiation skills, building long-term relationships with international suppliers.

The reason of selling this business

I have recently received scholarship to work full-time on another idea of mine, which I am planning to eventually turn into a stable business. The latter is more attractive to me since the product is one that I'm creating myself, instead of drop shipping it. Continuing to run this store will potentially deprive me of fully focusing on my current start-up. Worth to mention is that running this store has helped me gain priceless skills of managing an actual business, which I will use in the management of my start-up.

What's involved in running this business

Operations include running advertising campaigns and targeting customers in different angles, communication with customers and suppliers, and fulfilling orders.

This business was founded: about 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 15 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would keep trying new ad sets similar to the currently profitable ones, then scale by increasing the daily ad spend as well as using Google ads.

    Skills to have

    Persistence and willingness to spend the hours needed is a requirement for running any store, as well as is, at least, a basic level of digital marketing. Knowledge of psychology is beneficial.
