Business Story

Why this business was started

I wanted to create a fourth source of income. My main goal was to find a few products that would have a huge audience of potential customers and make this business long-term. I have created several abstract custom content (that is included) for brand awareness that has brought back a decent amount of profit for how little capital I've put into running this store.

The reason of selling this business

As Q2 approaches, I need to focus my efforts on my other stores, I no longer have much time for this store. This was a side project started and now I have many things I need to complete before March on the stores I've had for 2+ years.

What's involved in running this business

Fulfilling orders through oberlo/aliexpress. Managing basic facebook ads. Responding to customer emails and editing/testing new creatives every few days.

This business was founded: 6 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Continue to run new creatives and create custom content to build the brand around. Someone with a serious passion for stationery art could easily turn this into a very successful brand. I have found the most success running simple Facebook ads optimizing for conversions.

    Skills to have

    Should have basic knowledge of the Shopify platform, know how to run and manage advertising for Facebook and Instagram. Know how to submit orders to the supplier, know how to make video creatives (this can be outsourced but beneficial if you know how).

    Nathan B.Current store owner
    I have built multiple successful stores using shopify and facebook ads since 2017. Towards Q4 2020 I was looking to add another source of income. I saw the global stationery niche as being very profitable. The global stationery market is forecasted to record growth at a CAGR of 9.50% during the period spanning 2020-2024. The market in 2024 is anticipated to be valued at US$148.83 billion. Serious money to be made in this industry.
