Why this business was started
Some of us have brand new little ones in our lives, and so we understand the challenges that new parents face! Parents want their little one to be safe, comfortable, and maybe even fashionable - and they may need to change their clothing a few times each day as well! We feel this is a great industry for a new business owner to jump in to and find success in.
The reason of selling this business
We built this shop specifically for a new business owner to take over and run from scratch as their own. We enjoy making professionally designed and developed Shopify storefronts accessible and affordable.
What's involved in running this business
Marketing - social media and email, as previously described, are the recommended approaches here.
Customer support - ensuring this is handled promptly and professionally.
Varying inventory seasonally, and growing product offerings as new items are made available - this is not necessary, but definitely recommended.
- Shopify plan
- Recommended budget for Facebook and Pinterest ads (email marketing can be done without any monetary expense)
Physical inventoryNot available for starter stores
Logo and branding assetsWe will send the logo and favicon in PSD and PNG file formats (PSD is the original and can be edited, while PNG is the version you'll use on the site and possibly on social media properties as well), either via the Marketplace directly, or via email - up to you!
Personal support after saleWe are including an optional one-hour Q&A with one of our Shopify experts, for store owners who are unfamiliar with the Shopify platform. Our expert will answer your questions about marketing, Shopify apps, Oberlo drop shipping, and other inquiries pertaining to store setup and day to day operations via Skype chat or email exchange.

How to grow this business
We would recommend adding to the inventory over time, and rotating out old or less popular items seasonally.
While baby clothes can be timeless, the new parents that we know enjoy keeping their little ones up on fun fashion trends when possible.
Adding new categories of inventory, such as more accessories or other types of items that new parents needs might be a good way to grow the business as well.
Skills to have
We would recommend marketing the store, of course, and Pinterest and Facebook are likely going to be your best places to run ads and get your new business in front of your target audience at a very affordable rate.
You might also consider starting an email newsletter that blasts out coupons, along with fun blog articles or aggregated news content once or twice per month, as we have found that email marketing efforts have an exceptionally high success rate.
