Business Story

Why this business was started

Started this business as a means of accumulating capital for our private label apparel business. The business started in Jan 2017 as we were learning the ropes and eventually rebranded to an outdoor recreation store in November 2017. This site has been a consistent cash cow for us and allowed us to divert cash flow to our main apparel business.

We specialize mainly in outdoor equipment and tools and the revenue has been consistent for most of the 2018. We have begun to spend less and less time on this store and just running it on autopilot to generate some cash to fund our other venture.

The reason of selling this business

Our apparel venture is taking off and we are planning to divert most of our attention and resources to take it to the next level.

The site is currently running on auto pilot with minimal ad spend on FB ads. It has been tweaked many times to optimize its conversion rate and it has a solid backend of email and SMS automation to further increase sales. We normally spend between 10-15 hours a week on this store.

What's involved in running this business

The store is mostly automated and the backend is setup with email flow, sms flow and other apps to increase your average order value. Additionally, the email list is fresh with 5500 outdoor niched customers which you will be able to market to without spending money on facebook ads.

The next owner could run it on autopilot with 10 hours a week in setting up ads and email campaigns. Or you could take it even further by adding more products and marketing more actively to $30k months.

Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would move to private label any products that are popular to decrease shipping times and to solidify the brand as long term sustainable business.

    Skills to have

    Facebook and Google marketing would be great plus the ability to manage virtual assistants if selling at a large scale.

    Why use Exchange?

    Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores

    Verified listing data

    The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.

    Secure messaging platform

    You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.

    Encrypted payment capture

    Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.

    Take time to inspect the business

    Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.

    Safe store transfer

    When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
