Business Story

Why this business was started

I have a full time job but I always wanted to start my own business and go through the process of creating our online store from scratch. After discussion with my wife, we decided to build a school supplies online store as our first business idea.,

The reason of selling this business

I have a full time job in technical sales which is very demanding. This business requires more time to promote the business, manage online advertising campaigns, setup social media profiles, and constantly look for new sales channels. I believe that someone with existing online businesses can add this online store to their portfolio with little additional time.

What's involved in running this business

1- manage product feeds from suppliers. this is currently done automatically. 2- manage orders. this is done on Shopify admin page and supplier ordering web page. I have been managing orders manually. the new owner can also enable automatic order management for a small fee. 3- handle customer support. this is typically done through email. 4- in rare cases, you may have to process order returns or defective product replacement. 5- business promotions campaigns through search engines, social media platforms, etc. the best channel for us has been Google Search.

This business was founded: about 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 2 hours per week
