Business Story

Why this business was started

I have always wanted to do something for the environment ever since I visited some coral islands 2 years ago and saw the bad state of our oceans. I switched to the #zerowaste lifestyle. Millions of people agree, and we quickly built about 218 partners right within 2 months of starting this business. It is booming and everyone is extremely excited to switch to steel straws from single-use plastics.

The reason of selling this business

I currently have a job along-side the business, and since [REDACTED] is growing at an unexpectedly fast pace, I am unable to keep balance. I needed to pause campaigns for the past two weeks to clear my client task-lists. I recently started out as a marketer and need to continue my job to learn more about this field. I believe [REDACTED] is ready to be taken to the next level by someone as passionate as me (about the environment). This is a hot market and steel straws will sell with ease.

What's involved in running this business

We reach out to more and more bloggers and influencers over Instagram, YouTube, etc. We get them signed up to our affiliate system on almost autopilot, and they run their own campaigns - shoutouts, mentions, blog citations, podcast mentions, and so on. The website has grown very quickly to a respectable size and this is just getting started. Once someone places an order, it needs to be fulfilled by forwarding to our fulfillment partners. There is zero hassle.

This business was founded: 4 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 5 hours per week
