Why this business was started
I am a hairdresser by trade and I work at lots of weddings. So I could see that bridal parties do a lot of online ordering for the majority of their items for their big day. I knew what was in style what people order for weddings as I was there on the day and saw it all first hand.
The reason of selling this business
I don't have the time to spend on it anymore as I have a young family and I also work full time as a hairdresser with my own business. I loved setting up the store but struggle to stay motivated on the computer, I need to concentrate more on my hairdressing at this moment in time.
What's involved in running this business
I did most sales on ebay so it was mainly ordering the product and checking the tracking that it had arrived as the products and descriptions I had previously spent time on so unless I was sourcing a new product I didn't need to do too much to the site.
I started this store for bridal party preparation. I also work as a bridal hairdresser and noticed that everyone was using very similar items in the morning before a wedding. Primarily I wanted to sell robes for the bridal party to wear while getting ready, but I also noticed that some brides wear a veil because of family pressure and they don't want to spend a lot of money on a veil they don't really want to wear so I have an affordable range of veils on my site too. I order my products via the Oblero app with most coming from Ali Express. I have had a lot of sales from ebay using ink frog app. My best seller is a long dressing gown. I've imported 95 products to my store and have gone through all the descriptions tagging each product and putting them into collections.
Why should someone buy this store?
It's a great little store that has a number of products idea for a wedding day. I will offer 1 month if help to whoever buys this store. I always had a few sales each month without doing too much so imagine how you could expand with more e-commerce experience.
How can the future owner improve the business?
The future owners could run more ads and maybe do more SEO. someone with a better knowledge of ecommerce could improve this ready made store immediately. I was hairdressing too and found it hard when I had a lot of work on to manage the store and the hairdressing.
What work have you put into the store?
I sourced a few of the dressing gowns and have a few samples of them. I've done a lot of work on the descriptions and pages I have run a few ads and have sat for hours checking product pages. I've personally seen first hand what people wear on the morning of a wedding and sourced products based on years of bridal party experience.
