Business Story

Why this business was started

The Merch Ape Brand was built with meticulous planning in order to create the most trustworthy online merchandise site possible. Our way of dealing with customers has painted a positive image for the brand in the social media space, and with its versatile brand image you will be able to shape the brand's focus to your liking. The site is fully optimized for both mobile and desktop while providing a legitimately trustworthy feel.

It has a proven marketing channel setup through Facebook Advertising and optimized product pages are already set up for you to devise various marketing strategies to bring in sales. The site occasionally receives orders through SEO and there is room for improvement to bring even more sales through SEO.

The reason of selling this business

I have decided to focus on advertising for local clients in my area since I enjoy the relationship building experience and plan to take it on full-time. I believe this brand has the potential to grow much more if time is dedicated to it, and I know there is someone out there who will be willing to put this into action.

You will be provided with the tools necessary to grow this brand, including our email list of around 2,400+ proven buying customers (Over 1,000 are Proven Customers in the Dog Niche, & over 200 are Proven Customers in the Music Enthusiast Niche). You will have our permission to use this data to find & advertise to more buyers. The unique website domain name in addition to our most successful campaigns will be provided.

The supplier network we use for all of the products will be provided, and the site will be linked with oberlo if you wish to quickly add particular products.

What's involved in running this business

Responding to occasional emails & fulfilling orders a few times a week adds up to about 2 hours per week.

Success will come from the ability to create great offers through our social media channels. Our site catalog will prove as a great way for you to grasp ideas for the types of offers that bring in a lot of sales. Maintenance of the business will take very little out of your day, and how much time you spend growing the business will be totally up to you. Patient planning & execution has brought the most success for this site, and I whole-heartedly believe doing the same will bring more results.

Time to run this business: approximately 20 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Market research and planning determines success in this type of business. Finding unique items that particular channels have not seen yet is proven to bring larger volume sales. I would decide on either Facebook advertising or Google Advertising and increase buying traffic from that source over time.

    Skills to have

    Willingness to create new offers/products to bring more sales in. Our collection of products will help you jumpstart sales for the site and also allow you to brainstorm more ideas for new hot product offers.

    Why use Exchange?

    Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores

    Verified listing data

    The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.

    Secure messaging platform

    You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.

    Encrypted payment capture

    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.

    Safe store transfer

    When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
