Paid up until June 14, 2019! Roan Mountain is a well known state park in East Tennessee. I live in this area and created the Roan Mountain Outdoors Shopify store in hopes of earning easy passive income. However, I quickly realized that I did not have the time to dedicate to this venture.
All of the monthly subscription apps have been canceled at the moment. There will be a marketing cost, monthly app subscriptions to assist with automation, and domain and email subscriptions cost to consider. The cost of the Shopify store has been paid up until June 14, 2019.
What marketing initiatives have been used for this business?
I have use low-cost Facebook Ads and Instagram advertising in the past which generated traffic, but little to no conversions.

If you choose to buy Roan Mountain Outdoors, you will get full access to this working website that has been paid up until June 2019, the ability to skip the initial start up process, the company logo, domain name, email address, Facebook Business Page, Instagram Page, and all of the generic and product photographs are also included. Oberlo is the current drop ship supplier to this site with a current inventory of 150 items with personalized descriptions for each product.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Roan Mountain Outdoors could be and should be a gold mine year round. Sports and outdoor equipment can be marketed year round. From summertime high ticket paddle boards to wintertime skies. Knives and gadgets always attract the novice outdoorsman. The outdoors niche does not limit you to just one thing. It can be such a wide variety.
What work have you put into the store?
I have personally designed this store to give the user a warm comfortable feeling whenever they come to the site. I also personally wrote each product description so that it would appear minimal but informative on each product. The store's current inventory is 150 items. The items are mostly multi tools, survival gadgets, some camping gear, and low cost free-plus-shipping items. This website is functional and only needs to be marketed to generate traffic and sells.This business generates revenue using the drop shipping model from Oberlo through eCommerce sells. Affiliate links and Google Ad Sense could also be added as extra sources of cash flow. I also use Facebook Ads and Instagram advertising as marketing initiatives to generated traffic, but have had little to no conversions with only a $5 per day marketing budget.
How many hours does it take to run this business per week?
Running a good and profitable eCommerce store should be treated like a full-time job. You may not invest full-time hours, but dealing with overhead expenses, marketing expenses, and not having time to update the inventory was costing way more than I had intended. But the demand is there and the store is here for the taking. I will also include access to the Facebook business page, because this is a turnkey website. The website needs to be marketed to generate traffic and sells.
