Business Story

Why this business was started

I was looking to learn about Shopify's product offering and choose the niche I did because of my hobby collecting gaming books and accessories. I had excess inventory and thought I'd start an ecommerce store to sell the extra rather then pay the Amazon fees. I quickly sold out of all my inventory and pivoted to making my own gaming accessories. The growth has been constant to the point that it really needs someone to give it full time attention.

The reason of selling this business

The business has grown to the point that it really needs a fulltime owner and I'm not in a position to be that person. There are also a lot of challenges with shipping and production these days so someone will likely want to bring that inhouse.

What's involved in running this business

Production, Fulfillment and Shipping are almost 100% outsourced. Only a few products are still handled by me and could be dropped or outsourced as well without impacting the business. I spend about an hour a day answering emails and writing tweets. The business can and has been run from a smartphone anywhere in the world.

This business was founded: over 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 7 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    There are a number of growth paths available. The one I'm most excited about is the digital subscription and digital content. Beyond that you could obviously look at paid advertising. The growth of the business has been 99%+ organic to this point as I have no background in paid ads. Someone with that background would do very well.

    Skills to have

    A knowledge of Role-Playing Games is obviously a huge plus. Online advertising skills could be very useful. We've almost completely outsourced production, shipping and fulfillment so there is no need to have that background.

    Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.

    Take time to inspect the business

    Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.
