Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business as I identified a gap in the market in men's streetwear inspired by European and United Kingdom fashion trends. My vision was to bring overseas trends to Australia and create a strong community of influencers in the same demographic involving men's fitness, tattoos, and looking and feeling good.

The reason of selling this business

I have recently gotten married and am in the process of starting a family, my personal priorities have currently shifted and instead of putting the business on hold for a year, I believe someone who is eager to put in the work can really grow the business and take it to another level. My time to dedicate to marketing and customer service will be limited and with the right person it's inevitable that Saint Valent can grow substantially over the next few years.

What's involved in running this business

Sampling new products and designs, ordering bulk orders, liasing with wholesalers, creating social media content and publishing to Facebook and Instagram.

Packing and mailing orders, managing customer service queries, liasing with suppliers, running Facebook and Instagram advertising, creating email marketing flows and sequences.

Managing customer service queries, managing and liasing with influencers, building a community.

Other details about profit: Saint Valent is currently stocked in 2 stores that pay via bank transfer. Both stores make regular orders every 2-3 months on average. Combined orders average approximately $2,800 AUD per order ($11,200 AUD/annually). As mentioned previously, both stores directly approached me for stockist requests. Proactively approaching stores can and most likely will result in much more business opportunities. I had never done this as our stock levels would sell out from our direct customers and I never felt the need for that approach, however, it can substantially increase revenue to take on new retailers.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Saint Valent is an established brand that is trademarked with a strong community of influencers and customers loyal to the brand. The niche is men's streetwear with a focus on being fashion forward and trendy. We're stocked in 2 stores in Australia (without making pro-active outreach, these retailers reached out to us for wholesale). The upside is enormous and with a small amount of business development the goal should be to be stocked in over 100 retail stores in the next 5 years globally, and receive wholesale orders monthly.

    In addition, we were only running paid advertising on one channel (Facebook and Instagram Advertising) as our sales were strong and we would sell out quickly. Google Shopping is yet to be tapped into and is just as profitable, there is an opportunity for you to double down on stock quantities and scale to $10,000 or more monthly within 2-3 months and is more than realistically possible. Google shopping is an extremely profitable channel.

    We can provide contacts to a clothing designer and sourcing supplier in the UK that understands our niche to create trendy designs and help with the transition process. Our quality of product is premium, having trialled and tested over 10-15 different manufacturers through a sampling process. We will let you know what products are best-performing and which to double down on for guaranteed sales.

    Our packaging is also branded, with a Saint Valent logo printed whilst being professional and neat.

    The opportunity is there for the taking should you wish to scale the brand, there is more than enough proof in the pudding that this is a trialled and tested business that has only operated in Australia to date.

    Significantly increase revenue by creating a Google Merchant Centre account and starting Google Shopping Ads, highly profitable and with a strong return on investment from paid spend.

    Invest in influencers both organic and paid (micro influencers and macro) and use this content to scale your ads across Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, and Google

    Conduct wholesale outreach and connect with retail owners and aim to get stocked in 100 stores in the next 5 years (to date business owners have come to us directly to get stocked in their stores).

    Invest in new stock and designs, test new manufacturers.

    Grow social media following through giveaways, paid advertising, utilising TikTok as a core channel for rapid follower growth.

    Conduct email marketing and create email marketing flows with Klaviyo or other EDM platforms, utilise the 1700+ email subscribers and grow list to 10,000 using giveaways and directing traffic to landing pages to capture email subscribers.

    Skills to have

    • A thorough understanding of ecommerce, social media marketing, and paid advertising. However, we have plenty of profitable ad templates which you can use and repurpose with new products.

    -Understanding of manufacturing, logistics, sampling clothing and apparel, liasing with manufacturers for product designs. Our current products are manufactured by english-proficient, and highly regarded in customer service suppliers. They are very communicative and provide on-going support for any issues and questions that arise for a smooth experience.

    • Communication skills for customer service of orders, liasing with influencers.
