Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business due to my interest in starting a business, and I had a lot of free time in high school. As I wanted to start an entrepreneurial pursuit by myself, dropshipping was an easy way to do this. Simple Instagram ads made my store easily scalable, and the lack of Facebook ads experimentation made this stable.

The reason of selling this business

Now as I pursue post secondary education in a different field of study, I decided to abandon this store and hope that someone else can take advantage of this existing brand.

What's involved in running this business

Fulfilling orders on Oberlo, influencer marketing, replying to customer service (or you can outsource this), posting on Instagram.

This business was founded: over 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 14 hours per week

Description

General description

*****There has been no marketing done since March. Store was paused in June. [old listing description; the store has been inactive for most of this year]

For the past 6 months, this store generated $7.6k USD profit a month, 80k visitors with around $500 spent on marketing and a few hours of work a day in front of a laptop and phone with wifi, by a teenager. Imagine what could be done if someone dedicates more time into it!

This store has incredible branding. People message the store when they see the same product on other stores, claiming that they copied us. Even on days without ongoing ads, we receive hundreds of dollars in sales. We have almost 69k Instagram followers and 15k people on our email list. With around 1000+ orders a month average for the past few months, this store is 99% guaranteed to succeed if you put some amount of work into it. Over time, we have accumulated many positive reviews as well! Simply checking our tagged photos on Instagram would be proof of this. We also have 500+ products on our store to provide a wide selection of items for customers to choose from.

Additionally, we have reviews from Youtubers and fairly popular Instagram accounts.

Why should someone buy this store?

[old listing description]

This store is unique in all the positive ways with extremely high potential. A dropshipping store rarely has this quality of branding. No high price FB ads for $1 a click when we receive 80000 visitors a month for ~$300 via Instagram marketing, and our own Instagram post can reach hundreds of thousands of people for free. We have no fad product, but more than a hundred trendy phone cases which will always be in need. We also have an amazing domain, POPCA.ca and also have ownership of popcausa.com which can be given to you. For American buyers, you can change the new domain to popcausa.com or a domain which you own while I can forward visitors from POPCA.ca to popcausa.com so you will not lose visitors.

I also have dozens (perhaps hundreds) of smaller Instagram accounts wanting to promote this store for free in exchange for a free product AFTER they convert their followers into a few sales. You can take advantage of this to use free marketing!

Even on days where ads are not ongoing, we receive hundreds of dollars of sales a day. In the summer when I spent a few more hours a week on the store, revenue was around $1000 CAD every day. I believe a new buyer should definitely be able to do this as well!

How can the future owner improve the business?

The future owner can use Facebook Ads more seriously as well as Pinterest. Reaching out to Youtubers for product reviews would also be amazing! I have Facebook's Pixel installed on the store, and have used Facebook Ads in the past but stopped as Instagram has been more efficient for me.

What work have you put into the store?

I have done everything on this store other than create the products, take photos, ship them out, etc. I picked out the products, wrote descriptions, tried multiple marketing methods, fulfilled the orders with the drop-shipping app, dealt with customer inquiries, refunds. etc.
