Business Story

Why this business was started

I was looking to learn more about the business context of the adtech industry. Specifically, I wanted to learn how to run media and understand branding/marketing. As a software engineer in the adtech industry, I wanted to understand how I could better my craft and learn more about the industry.

The reason of selling this business

I'm a software engineer and need to focus on the needs of my company. I'm also more interested in running ads than running the store itself. I no longer have time for this pet project.

What's involved in running this business

  • Daily customer service
  • Basic knowledge of running media advertisements
  • Understanding how AliExpress/dropshipping works
  • Product research
  • Creating new ads/creatives for testing
This business was founded: 9 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 6 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would invest more into advertising on different channels (Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter) and look into influencer marketing. Facebook seemed to work decently well. Again, it all comes down to testing various creatives to see what works best. Didn't see much traction with Google, but I've heard good things about it from others in the same space. Have not tried Snapchat, Twitter, or Youtube so those could be promising as well.

    Skills to have

    • Basic knowledge of the Shopify platform
    • Knowing how to run ad campaigns is a plus but all can be learned via resources online.

    Ryan G.Current store owner
    I'm a software engineer working at an adtech company and wanted to learn more about drop shipping and advertising. I used this store as a pet project to get my feet wet. Learned a lot along the way and am now using my newly acquired skills to help other small business grow their online presence. I simply don't have the time or interest to run this store myself anymore.

    Why use Exchange?

    Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores

    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.
