Seller‘s Advice

How to grow this business

I would start the growth process by targeting influencers (primarily via Instagram) to promote the shirts and set aside a budget for that. I would install a Facebook Pixel in the beginning as well to get a feel for the specific type of customers that are interested in my product. After a month of influencer ads (and hopefully some sales and "add to carts" along the way), I would then run Facebook and Instagram ads and would use Lookalike audiences to those that used the "add to cart" feature on my website, then slowly scale from there.

Skills to have

Getting the right kinds of influencers at the beginning are vital to any Shopify store's success. Initial sales and continued success rely on influencer and Facebook/Instagram ad success.

Why buy a business on Exchange

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.

Post-purchase 24/7 Shopify support

Once you log into your Shopify account for the first time and choose a subscription plan, Shopify Support Gurus are available 24/7 to help you with the settings of the store.

Chris J.Running this business for 6 months
I am an entrepreneur and have been heavily involved in social media the past few years. I was the founder of one of the largest social media tours in the U.S., as well as being an influencer myself the past 5 years. I look to help give people the opportunity to fast track their e commerce success, which is why I am more then happy to let someone invest in themselves by giving them my website and pre established social media channels. I believe that this idea will be very successful if given the proper amount of attention and care.
