Business Story

Why this business was started

We started the business in 2018 intially as a side-hustle to make some extra cash, we had other obligations so we were not as focused on the initial idea and in 2019 we were content with the revenue that was coming in, because it didn't take up too much of our time. In 2020 we decided to see how much of the workload we could handle with just us two and no employees and found our sweet spot. Even with the covid-19 pandemic, sales didn't stagnate and we grew exponentially.

The reason of selling this business

It's simple, we can't fulfill the volume of orders coming in.

We've limited our marketing in order to keep up with the high volume. The next logical step for us to take sticker social to the next level is to acquire a new space and hire more employees to keep up with the traffic. The problem is we have other business obligations and sticker social has outgrown us.

What's involved in running this business

In order to run the business you will need: a computer, a die-cut vinyl cutter, vinyl craft tools, and a large workspace/table. You will then order supplies online, print, cut, transfer decals, fulfill orders and ship, run marketing/ad campaigns. That's it.

This business was founded: about 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 30 hours per week

Other details about profit: Since Shopify Exchange shows numbers from the first day we created a Shopify account instead of the number from when we were an actual business here are some accurate YTD numbers. 2020 Year-to-date (Jan 1-Aug 31) Total Revenue: $82,990.00 (*shopify screenshot), Project to hit $120,000.00 by end of the year | Avg monthly profit is around $6,000 | Avg monthly revenue is around $10,300 | Avg monthly orders is around 500 | Our conversion rate is high at 6.23% and average order value $20.84 (*shopify screenshot) | This intially started as a simple side-hustle idea in 2018 and 2019 that we barely focused on, hence the low numbers those 2 years. It wasn't until 2020 when we began focusing and taking advantage of the sticker social's potential and growing it into a profitable ecommerce business. | *All business transactions are done within Shopify. *

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    sticker social has tremendous growth opportunity. What you put in is what you get out. We've already done the hard work of getting the margins as high as we can, setting up the entire decal-finishing process from start to finish, developing the website and plugin software, and creating the ad algorithim that maximizes traffic to www.sticker.social.

    sticker social is a great investment opportunity for existing print shops that specialize in die-cut vinyl products, stickers, t-shirts and other items who are looking for additional revenue streams or can provide capital to grow the business to a 500k/year standalone business. This could also be a great opportunity for the ambitious marketer or entrepreneur that will outsource production and have the skills required to scale the business with the correct marketing efforts.

    You can keep sticker social where its at with a small team and still earn a nice profit, or if you have a larger team thats able to take advantage of sticker.social's potential you can scale exponentially.

    Skills to have

    In terms of the operations for sticker.social, a finished decal sticker consists of three easy steps:

    1 - DESIGN

    2 - CUT and TRANSFER

    3 - SHIPPING

    1 - We use graphic design software like Adobe Illustrator to input a customer's custom text into our pre-built DESIGN template (included).

    2 - We then CUT the decals using a die-cut vinyl machine, then we apply TRANSFER tape to our sticker for an easy finished peel and place product.

    3 - We then SHIP and profit.

    We will provide you with our custom process, our design templates, files and fonts, as well as our online suppliers.

    You just need basic knowledge of graphic design software like Adobe Illustrator and Vinyl Cutting Software, the learning curve is very easy. If you are new to graphic design and vinyl cutting we will do our best to give you the instructions and training by including an easy how-to step-by-step guide and video if needed when you purchase the business. The sticker shipping process is simple and we've done our best to formulate a very low-cost shipping solution for our needs, maximizing potential profit.

    You will also need a basic understanding of how to operate digital ads online such as Google Ads, Facebook Ads, YouTube Ads, and Instagram Ads is essential to drive more traffic to the page. The more you understand digital advertising (or you can hire someone to run your online marketing) the more you can increase traffic to www.sticker.social.
