Why this business was startedI wanted to learn by doing so started this tea accessory drop ship store as a learning experience. I created a Facebook and Instagram account for the site, designed ads and posts, commissioned original art, and did a lot of my own product photography.
The reason of selling this businessI have a freelance business in another industry that is more successful and am rarely able to spend time on this. I have decided to move on from the idea.
What's involved in running this businessEverything on the site now is from Aliexpress via Oberlo. At a minimum you would want to run ads for products and regularly add new products and check that the existing products are still in stock. It would be ideal to write blog posts (I can provide topic ideas, examples, and drafts for a few posts). I can also give you about 200 original product photos suitable for instagram posts and ads.
Logo and branding assets
The shop, Oberlo and Aliexpress accounts, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest account (if desired). Domain name is optional. I'd actually like to keep the domain name if I can. You can easily change the name of the store (there are no branded items and I can help you revamp the shop and social media accounts with the new brand name).
Social media accounts
Personal support after sale
For the first 8 weeks after sale I can answer questions and help however I can.
Accounts will be transferred following advice from Exchange Marketplace. Photos can be sent via dropbox or similar method.
How to grow this businessInstagram seems to get the most eyeballs and engagement for this site. Tea and tea accessories are cute so it would be easy to continue to create good visual content to market on Instagram. I would also spend time creating more SEO-optimized content for the shop's blog and product descriptions.
Skills to haveI couldn't spend time on this and would let weeks go by without posts or ads. It would be best if you could be more attentive to building a sales funnel.
