Business Story

Why this business was started

It all started with me making slime with my daughters! As I observed the gaining popularity of slime on social media, I realized that there was a need for a professional website and social media presence in the slime industry. Many slime sites rely on Etsy or basic web platforms to conduct business. My professionally curated shopify store has appealed to parents and grandparents as well as the kids themselves. The product itself is so fun to work with and the creative possibilities are endless. I saw an incredible opportunity to make a living while having fun!

The reason of selling this business

Although the slime trend continues to maintain strong interest, I am selling in order to focus time and energy on other business ventures.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Increased social media presence. Creating new slime collections more frequently and engaging with followers via giveaways, collaborations, reviews, lives, and other interactive social media posts. Continued email marketing campaigns and Google AdWords marketing.

    Skills to have

    I had only been making slime for a few weeks before starting this business. My daughters and I watched youtube videos and invented recipes. Most anyone can make slime and with a little recipe following paired with some business sense, you can also have a successful business! The new owner should have an out of the box way of thinking and a desire to take their creativity into a new medium; slime! An interest of the slime industry and the slime making process will inspire recipe experimentation to create unique slimes that will be appealing to your followers. Familiarity with Instagram & Facebook would be recommended.
