This store specializes in selling stand up desks (both electronic and manual that are sit to stand) ergonomic office furniture and accessories for the office and home. We have over 9 suppliers we work with directly. We have over $8,700 worth of sales with the online store directly and including over $9,000 of sales using other channels (email, phone) with the same store brand name.
As the owner, I have been working abroad on and off during the period of owning the store and have had difficulty with maintaining focus on the store to see it grow. I've decided to sell the store at this time as for the foreseeable future, I will be living and working abroad.
Financials and traffic
A lot of sales are repeat sales but to grow the store again as it was in the initial period of its start, new advertisements are necessary. I haven't had ads on for almost over a year now as I began traveling it became difficult to manage.

I took these out but before I paid for McCafee virus protection and other apps. Right now the store is running on the bare minimum.
Do you work with any employees, freelancers, or contractors?
I pay them per job. I have worked with two girls (one from the Philippines for basic admin work and one from Lithuania for more graphic work and English related work). I can recommend both of them once the store is handed over to you.
Why should someone buy this store?
This store itself does not require much time other than updating media, advertisements on Google, Facebook, etc. however you may need to be ready to handle calls from the US in order to satisfy customer or supplier needs. I would estimate an average of 5 hours a week is necessary in order to grow the store beyond the current point where it is now.
How can the future owner improve the business?
I personally had the most success with Google product listing ads, however, I imagine the store could improve by making more media consistently on Facebook and adding Google text ads. Since this is not my area of expertise, I would like to pass the store on as I do believe in the products. We have had lots of repeat orders. It is still something that requires times and attention at least on a weekly basis and with me traveling in and out of areas without the internet or access to Google (China, country side in Vietnam at times), I personally cannot run the store at this time as it should be.
What work have you put into the store?
I initially hired VA's to help me not only upload all of the various products of the suppliers, thousands at this point when the variations are considered, but to help create pdf content, graphics and other media. We have two ebooks we created together. Otherwise, the store is ready to go with images and text in place that you can change as necessary.
How many hours does it take to run this business per week?
I travel lot but will be in contact for anything you need by email , phone or skype to help before and after the completion of the sale. We can discuss ways I can help once the store is sold so your transition is made as smooth as possible.
