Business Story

Why this business was started

The cat niche is a very passionate one with high potential. People love their pets and they enjoy getting them fun toys and gifts, as well as keeping them safe and clean. We've seen other pet product stores work well, so we figured this would be a great brand opportunity. Also, many cat products on AliExpress are very low-cost yet high-quality, resulting in high profit margins.

The reason of selling this business

We’re selling this store as a starter dropshipping brand because our team is passionate about creating new brands in interesting niches and finding them great owners who can enjoy the feel of it and use it to gain profits.

What's involved in running this business

Most of the backend work is done automatically by Shopify and its apps, so the commitment required is really just what you want to put into it. You can also hire Virtual Assistants or freelancers to do anything you don't like to do. Recurring tasks include fulfilling orders (just pressing a few buttons), product/supplier research, general site management, and marketing.

This business was founded: over 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 7 hours per week

Description

General description

Are you interested in owning a new online brand but don’t want to spend months building it yourself? Our small team of ecommerce experts have been building this valuable dropshipping store for over 3 months, creating a full “starter dropshipping package” so that you can start selling great products to interested customers.

All orders are fulfilled by an app called Oberlo, so you don’t need to talk to the suppliers or type in the customer’s information manually. Oberlo also makes sure your products are up to date and in stock, which makes it incredibly easy to run the store and focus on new products.

What’s so special about this store? Highly automated dropshipping brand with high brand appeal Complete starter package for anyone to manage and scale We’ve spent weeks uploading 122 great quality products to the store from reliable suppliers and with good profit margins. Our developer has spent hours working in the store’s code to make custom fixes and refinements to our store’s look and function Personalized branding assets created by our team of professionals Custom logo High converting custom store theme/look Specialized color scheme Custom cat vector & favicon Reliable domain hosted by 1&1.com Special customer service email (hello@kit-cat.co) Established SEO rankings to allow for organic sales and easy lookup Facebook ad account with $700 worth of pixel/marketing data 3 custom commercials for the store’s top product Instagram account with 2500+ followers and daily uploads Established Facebook page with 400+ page likes Great relationships with the brand’s followers The website and its photos have been optimized for fast loading speeds, SEO relevancy, and advanced color psychology Additional custom apps and features to boost conversions

Don’t have a high advertising budget? We’ve added a special “Affiliate Portal” where interested customers and influencers can sign up and refer new customers to the store through their automatic personal link. When the referral leads to a sale, the referrer gets a small commision and we get a sale with zero marketing cost. This is a tried and true marketing technique and has the potential to produce a lot of easy profit on a very low budget. Included with this is a carefully written email/DM that you can send to anyone and get this system up and running easily.

Why should someone buy this store?

Building a store takes a lot of time, money, and effort. We calculate that over 500 hours have gone into making this store; adding all the products, customized assets, marketing data collection, and specialized store design. Since we've done all the legwork, you can hop right in and make it profitable right away.

How can the future owner improve the business?

Once your marketing takes off, you can pursue all sorts of additional marketing techniques, some of which we've implemented already. In 5 years, if you dedicate a little bit of time per week to it, this store could be making you hundreds of thousands per year.

What work have you put into the store?

The most popular way to advertise is on Facebook ads, so we set that all up for the new owner, running $700+ worth of advertisements to gain Pixel data and a few sales. New products and commercials can be easily added at any time at your discretion. Some perfect sales tactics for this store include the “buy one get one free” sales model or “get it free, just pay shipping”, which are especially profitable for low-cost products.
