Business Story

Why this business was started

We started the business as part of an online competition in 2016. We also love natural products and wanted to find a deodorant that actually worked.

The reason of selling this business

We struggle to find the time to upkeep the business - send emails, post on social. We both have full-time jobs and a kid which takes up a lot of our time.

What's involved in running this business

You can make the product yourself - it takes about 2 hours to make 120 jars. Or you could outsource this - we can connect you with manufacturers. You can also choose to ship the product yourself, or get a 3rd party logisitcs company. We've done both and can provide recommendations.

This business was founded: over 6 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 3 hours per week

Description

General description

Natural deodorant is quickly becoming a hot product. It's why Unilever recently acquired a business in this space and venture capitalists are rushing to invest in this industry. Also, finding the right product is the key to ecommerce instead of trying to sell something that everyone else is selling.

How can the future owner improve the business?

There's a few exciting opportunities. When we were actively marketing, the business would generate $10k-$20k/month. A new owner could continue infuencer marketing and include some paid facebook/instagram/tiktok/google shopping marketing. We will share our past strategies with the new owner.

If a new owner were to pursue more retail opportunities, possibly through a products distributor, the business could grow exponentially.

What work have you put into the store?

We put a lot of effort in the early days doing influencer collaborations and facebook ads - starting back in 2016. Since having our baby (and getting pregnant for that matter) we stopped putting time into the business. Not to mention all the money and time spent in R&D creating our formulas.

    I run a marketing agency and started this business with my wife. The business has been great but we've struggled to create the time necessary to grow or service it.
