Business Story

Why this business was started

I wanted to earn some extra income, in addition to my full-time job. I have watched and read a lot about dropshipping and it seemed like a good, affordable model.

The reason of selling this business

I am currently working full-time in healthcare and studying part-time. This combined with my family committments mean that I dont have the time to put into the business that I should to make it grow.

What's involved in running this business

Initially, I did do a lot of facebook marketing and promoted the shop on Pinterest (which has been our biggest source of customers), but over the past year, the shop has run without any advertising. My duties have involved processing orders, and responding to customer emails.

This business was founded: about 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 1 hour per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    The traffic I am currently receiving is without any marketing or advertising. By incorporating these aspects into the business, there is good potential for growth. The best sellers in the store are the decor items - wall stickers, rugs and cushions. I believe that by focussing on these products - the business has the best chance for growth.

    Skills to have

    Everything needed can be learned fairly easily online. When I first started, I was a complete novice, but have learned a lot through the process of running the store.
