Why this business was started
I just wanted to earn some money. I started this store after 10 failed stores previously. I was still a student and I set aside all my free time to master design skills (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro), copywriting and paid traffic advertising so that I could stand out from my competitors.
I wanted to make a good source of side income and this business helped me to do so. I still generate 2-3k in monthly revenue purely on organic traffic (no paid advertising).
The reason of selling this business
I am now working a full time job and I have no time to expand the business. I only log in every few days to fulfil all pending orders. I want to climb in my career as I love what I do and want to pursue further opportunities there. I also have personal reasons which I unfortunately have to attend to, which allows me very little time to run this store.
What's involved in running this business
Understanding of Facebook ads. Maintaining excellent customer relationship by handling all customer issues. Fulfilling individual and bulk orders are automatic via DSers.
Creating new, custom products are also possible and would be my next plan as we have a very solid relationship with the supplier who is also the manufacturer.

SuppliersSupplier is the main producer for almost all the products within my store. The supplier ships all orders with expedited shipping (YunExpress) and all packages are branded with the store logo.
How to grow this business
My main demographic are Asian-Americans. This demographic was removed as a targeting option through Facebook ads after my store started gaining traction. Thus, my customer database is extremely valuable and highly sought after toward businesses intending to target this demographic.
I would absolutely focus on email marketing. My current email list has more than 12000 emails, all of which are authentic and from visitors on my website. The email list is extremely valuable - almost 80% are solely from the Asian-American demographic. I ran Facebook ads targeting this specific demographic right before Facebook took it down.
I would test more products and run more advertisements while at the same time growing my organic following. The store currently has 5k followers in Instagram as I partnered with many influencers and student societies from various Universities.
