Business Story

Why this business was started

The founding story of our shop can be read in the initial blog chapter of the store-site. We are travel addicts ourselves and needed a solution for our problem. The store was then started for fun - and for the sake of it being so simple. We never imagined this to grow into what it has become. Now its time to hand this beautiful idea over to an ecommerce appassionata, while we have long started other endevours.

The reason of selling this business

We are no ecommerce experts. We started the business as a fun project and learning experience - that then grew larger than ever expected. Now both founders have moved on, to new ideas, and its time to pass the store on - into the hands of an ecommerce expert.

What's involved in running this business

Most of the products are print-on-demand, with a fully integrated and automated supply chain. Regular work is reduced to customer service inquiries. The marketing effort is up to the one running the show.

This business was founded: almost 5 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 4 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    This store was purely focusing on ecommerce potentials for now - even that, in a rather reactive manner with little to no marketing budget. Hence if you are proficient in online marketing, you have good chances to grow this much further than we ever could. Product lines have much potential too, to be further extended. Same goes for the offline and b2b world, where we never really left the barn and only focused on incoming inquiries.

    Skills to have

    Graphic Design knowledge helps, to further advance the products - is however not needed in-house. Extensive online marketing knowledge is needed, as is for every ecommerce business.

    ICONSPEAK T.Current store owner
    We are a success story, borne out of a simple idea - that conquered the world. Out of personal need, based on a true story, we designed a t-shirt that would allow for global communication. 39 icons were crafted that could help travellers speak to everybody, everywhere. Because it was so easy with Shopify, we started a shop, wrote about it - and were hit by a viral storm that brought us to CNN, National Geographic, and others. Now its your turn - time to explore the vast potential this idea has left!
