Why this business was started
We started Gem & Co as a hobby while I was serving part-time and attending university full-time. I made a friendship necklace, wore it to work and it immediately got attention. When I decided to go on vacation to Australia in my final year I could not run my business. I couldn't make the necklaces and I couldn't ship them. From there, we researched manufacturers and began working on our strengths: marketing. We leveraged Instagram to grow a worldwide customer base and cult-like following.
The reason of selling this business
We started a marketing agency, [REDACTED], that took off and we don't have the time or want to invest the resources in scaling GEM to 7-Figures.
What's involved in running this business
One VA can handle 95% of the daily operations. This is typically $5-6/hr and I could see taking no more than 4-6 hours daily. We have an online educational platform that we use to educate VA's in their role. Currently our VA's work under the holding company and not specifically this brand. When it comes time to sell this business to you, we will happily help source a VA, educate and ensure they are confident in their daily duties, which includes:
- Order Fulfillment
- Customer Service
- Supplier Relations
- Adding New Products
- Responding to Instagram Direct Messages
- Scheduling Social Media Content via Later (Scheduling App) --> Instagram & Pinterest
