Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this part time business to make some extra money on the side. I've always loved the outdoors, so I figured drop shipping in the outdoor niche would be the perfect introduction to part time drop shipping. I left the store idle for quite a while, and got back into it around September and was able to generate some profit by selling ski goggles. This was quite exciting, and I loved being able to sell outdoor products while also being able to promote and discuss the outdoors with other outdoors men.

The reason of selling this business

I'm selling this store because I started it as a part time business with the intent of being able to work on it during my spare time. I was able to put a substantial amount of time into the development of the aesthetics and branding of the site, and found a supplier who was willing to give us a hefty wholesale discount, with branded goggles. Unfortunately, I do not have nearly enough time to manage a business like this, and I'd like to sell it to someone who's willing to keep it running.

What's involved in running this business

This business is run by myself, with tasks occasionally outsourced to freelancers, such as logo design, and other tasks which require artistic or graphic skill. Oberlo is used to fulfill the orders, and the process is almost entirely automated, the focus of the business owner is simply marketing. There's interest in the store on Instagram, when the store was active, we'd receive daily messages of people wanting to partner with our brand. If the Instagram page becomes active again, it has a reliable fan base who're interested in the products and will save time by going the business organically.

This business was founded: over 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 12 hours per week

Other details about profit: When ads are running the revenue is $100 weekly, the reason the monthly value is so low is because ads were only run for about one month, which you can see as a sharp spike in interest, sales, etc.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    If I weren't selling, I'd grow this business by weekly social media uploads teasing products, Facebook and Instagram detailed targeting marketing, and by getting into selling branded goggles straight from the supplier.

    Skills to have

    There are no skills that have to be known to operate this business, but a willingness to put in consistent effort must be present.

    I'm a full-time student leaving very little time left to manage a growing business. I started this business hoping to make a steady passive income stream, and was able to successfully make a profit, but was not aware of the weekly time and effort required to sustain it. If you're willing to put in the work of maintaining the store, I'd love to sell it to you and hope that you can make a profit doing so.
