Why this business was started
I started this business to generate some additional income with the ultimate aim of quitting my 9-5 job.
I initially started out in the family gift niche which was fairly untapped back in 2017.
As competition has increased and over the last year or so I have started to focus more on sub niches e.g. Wife, Girlfriend, Daughter, Son, LGBT Wives, Girlfriends etc.
The reason of selling this business
We've spent the last year building a Facebook Ads agency, which has meant we don't really have the time to take this store forwards anymore. We have kept small campaigns running to keep the audience warm but it really needs someone who can dedicate more time to it.
Additionally, because I am based in the UK and the main market for the business is the USA, there are additional currency exchange rate fees which would not apply if the buyer were based in the USA
What's involved in running this business
Traffic to the store is generated using Facebook ads, Etsy and Pinterest. Etsy produced $25k sales ad free sales in 2019 alone. Whilst I can't transfer my Etsy store to you, I will give you the listing details and artwork for the best sellers so you can hit the ground running and make back your investment quickly, wihout the need for paid advertising.
I use two main suppliers, both based in the USA, who make and fulfill the orders on my behalf. This is all done via apps on the store, and there is no manual processing necessary. I use email marketing software to follow up after a sale and a review app to check levels of customer satisfaction.
New product research is key, most of which can be done on platforms like Etsy. This is how I have found ideas of products in the past, some of which have gone on to sell thousands of units.
