Business Story

Why this business was started

One day, I tried these smartphone lens kits, and I thought they were cool, and the people I showed them to also thought they were cool. Since most peoples use their smartphone to take pictures, I decided to sell them on a website.

The reason of selling this business

I'm now into fulltime consulting for my eCommerce clients, I don't have enough time to manage it properly.

What's involved in running this business

At the moment, it's dropshipping for testing purpose. You'll have to fulfill orders on Aliexpress, but if you start scaling I highly suggest to buy in bulk and send to a fulfilling center. I also suggest you search for more smartphone photography-related products to make upsell & cross-sell. Then, of course, there is the advertising part. I've made some photo and videos ads to promote the website (they'll be included in the website) but I suggest to try more creatives to find the one that will get you the cheapest cost per purchase

This business was founded: 9 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week

Other details about profit: I truly managed the store for only a month, that's where most of the profit was located. It wasn't really profit however, I was reinvesting everything and planned an acquisition strategy, so, profit isn't really what matters at this stage. The goal is to get an audience to then upsell using email marketing and create powerful audiences on Facebook with Lookalikes. That's where profit is.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    If I would have more time to manage it properly, I'll try to create a community of peoples who loves to take and share pictures with their phones. The whole point is to have this community and provide them with cool products to improve their smartphone photography experience. I'd mostly use engagement ads and then make retargeting on the peoples who watched/engaged the video. AdWords is a great way to get peoples on the website too.

    Skills to have

    It's always useful to know basic Photoshop and video editing even if you can outsource it.

    I found studies boring, so I stopped after highscool to create my own business. I quickly took an interest into eCommerce, which I'm doing since them. I've started with my own stores, and switched to consulting recently. I'm now doing full-time consulting.
