Why this business was started
I decided to start this business because I believed that drop shipping is a smart way to make money on the side while I was studying in college. I have a lot of experience with technology and creating websites. I hoped to use the money earned through this business to help pay for my college tuition and living expenses.
The reason of selling this business
I have decided to sell my store because I do not have the time or money to scale it to its's full potential. I am a full-time pre-med student and I work part-time, which makes it difficult for me to focus on advertising and expanding. I created this store with everything it needs to get attention and trust from potential customers. However, without the time and money needed for advertising the store I was not able to get sales. Although I did get over 1,000 visitors to the website, which means that a little push in the right direction will have a very positive outcome.
What's involved in running this business
In this business advertising is very important. The store is simple and beautiful with everything you need to gain trust from customers. Overall, you will spend a maximum of 8 hours per week on this business. Find the correct audience for your products. Advertise through google, Facebook, Instagram, and Instagram influencers. There are shopify experts who can help with marketing and advertising or you can outsource and pay someone to do it.

How to grow this business
I would start by uploading more trending and popular products from Shopify's new drop shipping source called Eprolo. With Eprolo you can be confident that the products are from excellent suppliers and shipping will be quick. Then, I would advertise through google and multiple social media streams. Shopify now provides a support for marketing your store so I would take advantage of that. If I had the money I would simply pay for professional marketing and advertisements to be created, which would make this business incredibly profitable.
