Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business as a means to generate additional income. I had a lot of free time on my hands and wanted to create a business of my own. I chose blue light filtering glasses as the profit margins can be as much as 80-90% depending on how you price the items. As well, I personally use these glasses daily. I am a big believer these glasses have many benefits for people from sleeping better to reducing eye strain.

The reason of selling this business

I started consulting on the side of my 9-5 about the same time as launching this business. The consulting quickly took up much of my free time and I couldn't put the necessary time into the store to get it going as quickly as I would've liked. My consulting business has grown and I've decided to soley focus on that business rather than trying to re-launch this store.

What's involved in running this business

Order fulfillment and running online advertising are the most hands on parts of the business. Some of the typical tasks I encountered are using Shopify to manage orders, and print USPS shipping labels. Packaging each order and delivering it to the local USPS. Managing a business Instagram profile - posts, followers, interacting with others, creating ads. Managing Facebook Ads Manager to create ad sets and runs ads on social media (this can be outsourced via sites like Fiverr).

I can give you inventory, label printer, packaging, shipping boxes and a name of a supplier (all upon request only).
