Women's and Kids Fashion, Beauty, Accessories and Apparel. This is a store all about and for Women and Mothers and it has been customized to that effect. I have installed review apps and other apps to drive in interest. I source my drop-shipping products from Spocket and Oberlo (these items are purchased only when a sale is made and shipped directly from the wholesaler to the buyer under the store owners name) which still have lots of items I can add with my allowance. I am only selling because I am progressing in my legal career and do not have time to take the store further.
I have many followers and interest in the site however, I do not have time to make sales, there needs to be someone who can invest in a professional to make visitors into sales or someone who knows how to do that already. I have had a few sales and good feedback. If you are good at sales and computers than you can take this business further and be successful.
How can the future owner improve the business?
To register with google as I am not a computer person and was not really good at doing all that pixel stuff so the future owner can do this. To add more products there is still lots that can be added through spocket in my import list and in my allowance to search for further products and I have additional allowance in Oberlo to add more products. Liaise more with customers, do more engaging social media posts and on special occasions to post deals etc which I did not have the time to do much off. Also there is an option to employ a shopify expert if you have the extra cash to drive in sales. The website is really ready for someone who can turn visitors into sales.
What work have you put into the store?
I have created the store, added many items from oberlo and spocket, I have customized the website, I have driven in much interest in the site mainly on Facebook, then some on Instagram and twitter. I have liaised with customers giving me an excellent response rating. I have also invited people who have liked my ongoing posts to like my page so they are potential additional followers, I have made a few sales and I have posted a few promotions which had great responses. to note there is no physical inventory just drop-shipping products which means he wholesaler sends the products to your customers direct under your company name when an order is made and thus, you don't have to waste any money on inventory not sold.
How many hours does it take to run this business per week?
