General description

Disclaimer: The business was officially valued at up to 39.000 USD by the Flippa Sales Management Team. My offer: 24.500 USD. Please read below why this offer is unique and entails tremendous value.

Hello, my name is Tom Preikschat.

In May 2017, I founded PawShop.

It is an international animals/pets niche store (Shopify drop shipping).

Last year, annual sales were 35.818,45 EUR (roughly 43.000 USD) and has been rather inactive in 2018 so far and that is because I can't find time for this Shopify store anymore. I have been super busy building a social media marketing app (Cirkle) with a few entrepreneurs from Rotterdam, Netherlands. Unfortunately, it takes up all my time but I love the purpose we have with creating the app.

Furthermore, since 01 Jan 2018, the German tax law does not allow me to do worldwide sales anymore (for my type of legal entity). I learned and developed my sales skills for worldwide marketing campaigns, which I am not allowed to do anymore this year. I lack the time to learn and test new marketing channels that I can focus on local sales with. Therefore, I have not done active marketing ever since and nearly all 2018 sales were passive sales.

You can say that well over 70% of the annual sales and profits came from in the last 4 months of 2017. After that, the store was inactive (as described above). Therefore, traffic and sales averages are hard to provide and do not actually reflect average performance. When the 'ball is rolling', average profits are much much higher.

Remember, with any drop shipping store you acquire, you will mainly be responsible for marketing the products. So why not invest in an existing infrastructure that has proven to work.

Because I am moving focusing on Cirkle and my tax situation leaves me hopeless for now, I decided to give you the opportunity to save hundreds upon hundreds of hours of preparation work and make sales instantly.

What I mean by that is that not only the Shopify store is sold.

This package also comes with highly valuable extras, which you can find listed below.

PawShop has fans and recurring customers all over the world.

(9) Full Email Funnel & Loyalty follow-up series

  • Emails for multiple customized email lists

  • 194 total emails

  • Written in professional English

Explanation:

The emails are distributed on different email lists:

(A) List for dog owners

A I: Prospects (59 emails)

A II: Buyers List (6 emails, initiated after they made a second purchase, after they received those 6 emails, they get moved back to the prospects list)

A III: Recurring Buyers List (4 emails, initiated after they made a second purchase, after they received those 4 emails, they get moved back to the prospects list)

(B) List for cat owners

B I: Prospects (42 emails)

B II: Buyers List (6 emails)

B III: Recurring Buyers List (3 emails)

(C) People who own both dog(s) and cat(s)

C I: Prospects (42 emails)

C II: Buyers List (6 emails)

C III: Recurring Buyers List (6 emails)

The email list was created following the Jab-Jab-Jab-Right Hook principle (3 emails in a row containing valuable information/tips and every fourth email is a sales email).

The emails are fully designed and contain professional knowledge on dog & cat owning and about those animals in general.

The emails are usually around 300 words long. Storytelling sales emails may be longer and have the potential to thrill the reader.

Every email is relevant and tailored towards the reader (personalization included).

Contact me for samples of the emails.

Sales emails are both general and specific sales texts written by a professional copywriter and perfectly blend into the autoresponder sequence.

There are even some sales emails following Andre Chaperons "Product Launch Sequence" principle (written by a professional storyteller/copywriter).

Financials and traffic

Business Expenses

The costs, of course, heavily depend on how you choose to market and automate the business.

For me it looked somewhat like this (on top of Shopify & marketing costs): Dropified - $47/month Apps ~ $30/month AWeber ~$20/month Intuit Quickbooks ~$20/month

The product costs were usually about 20% of the revenues.

Q & A

Why should someone buy this store?

This offer allows the buyer to save months of work and research. The massive infrastructure is ready to go and everything you could possibly think of is already professionally made and available to you. On top of that, an organically built, huge fan base is already there for you. The buyer may skip a lot and get straight to the sales.

How can the future owner improve the business?

Recently, the store has been inactive because I was 100% focused on a startup (Cirkle) and could not even invest a few hours per week. Activity must therefore be increased again.

What work have you put into the store?

I have built the whole store/infrastructure by myself, partly with the help of hired professionals (like designers & copywriters)

  • product/supplier sourcing and relationship-building
  • domain registration
  • email funnel building & testing (with professional copywriters)
  • website design (with professionals)
  • building and maintenance of the social media accounts
  • ...

In the beginning, I worked >12h per day to get PawShop set up and create the complete infrastructure over the course of many months. After a good cashflow could be established on the website, I could automate the shop so much, that my efforts were reduced to just a few hours per week.

How many hours does it take to run this business per week?

10 hours
