Business Story

Why this business was started

This business was started to generate an extra income stream, and to put into practice what I learned about online businesses. This listing is for an online novelty store with physical inventory, in the kawaii (cute/ novelty gifts) niche. This business features a wide variety of kawaii stationary, and cute products from office supplies to unicorn products, & much more. This store has a lot of growth potential and sales can drastically increase with paid advertising (Facebook, Google, Instagram, etc). Seller stopped working on this store due to lack of time and budget, since I have been working and investing on another project. Therefore we have stopped doing any advertising for the past few months, all current traffic and sales are organic.

This store needs someone who is willing to enthusiastically work on it and run some ads on a regular basis. A guide with current strategy, suggestions, and all information needed to run this business will be included with the sale. Inventory is currently located in North Carolina; BUYER is responsible for shipping (cost and arrangements) of physical inventory. Total worth of inventory, packaging, customized supplies, social media accounts and everything listed below estimated to be about $35,000.

The reason of selling this business

For the past year I have put a lot of time and effort int this business because I was not planning on selling it at least for another three years, but I am currently managing another online business, and I was recently offered the opportunity to participate on a big project/business venture and I won't have enough time to keep running this store. Also, to work on this new project I will need to relocate soon and I can’t take physical inventory with me, and I plan on using the funds from this sale to invest on this project.

What's involved in running this business

To successfully run and grow the business you need to: 1) Run advertising ads (social media or search engines) to promote products or sale events.

Other details about profit: Monthly sales and profit really depend on how much money is spent on ads. On average you can currently make from $40 to $100 on monthly sales without spending any money on ads at all, 100% organic and free. When you spend about $40 a month on Facebook ads, monthly sales increase up to $300 (from my experience) and then it can easily increase depending on your marketing experience/ knowledge and budget for ads. If you are willing to spend a few hundreds a month on ads you can easily scale up sales to thousands per month.
