Business Story

Why this business was started

I wanted to help expand the goodness of Islam while supporting myself with a flexible business opportunity during these uncertain times.

The reason of selling this business

I am starting graduate school this summer and I unfortunately do not have the capacity to run this store anymore. I also would like to sell this before / during the beginning of Ramadan so that the new owner can have a strong start. Many people are seeking this product and other Islamic products because of the holy month and sales should continue to be strong.

What's involved in running this business

Right now, this is a turnkey operation!

Everything is set up and even if you didn't change anything, you'd be able to make a nice profit [at least $1k]. Because everything is automated in both marketing and fulfilling orders, all you need to do is fulfill orders through the Topdser app and send occasional discount newsletters through Seguno Marketing app. It's no more than 30 min every few days; but you can invest more time in it if you want to expand the business. The advertising is done only through Facebook ads. It is very effective

If you like a better email marketing app, then you are free to use that one as well. The discount codes and popups are all automated through an app called Automizely. This also automatically grows your customer mailing list [past month grew by 100 subscribers].

This business was founded: 9 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 2 hours per week

Other details about profit: This profit and average order per month is a big underestimate. It is brought down by the previous months (August-Feb) in which the store was not active. It was not active because ads were not being used / website was still being built out. It is now a well-oiled machine ! You can see below with the screenshots, the March revenue is very high and is only increasing for April. For recent months, the revenue is closer to $1,200/month with average order of 45 orders/month. The best way to increase profit is reducing costs. You may experiment with increasing prices too. The Topdser app is really wonderful because they allow you to buy in bulk which will reduce costs. They will also house the products and ship the items within 24hrs. They also have very good customer service.

      I will share a file with all branding tools such as logo, advertising videos, and product photos. The ads are already set up in FB ads and will just need to be turned "on."
    • Personal support after sale

      I am happy to provide my support and insight for the first month. I'm also happy to plan introductory calls where I can walk you through how to use Shopify, Topdser, FB ads. I want you to succeed :)

    • Suppliers

      As mentioned before, the supplier is really amazing. Topdser is mainly a fulfillment service but they also supply items too. They don't supply everything but they do have the ability to do so for the Qur'an Moon Lamp. From them, you are able to reduce costs and also have the peace of mind that if an order goes wrong, they will help you. They have a really great customer service and they speak good English too! Something unique is their private storage option. You can buy 100 lamps and have it stocked in their warehouse. It is cheaper per cost but also they ship out within 24 hours if you stock in their warehouse (and not just an Aliexpress vendor). I really love Topdser! They make e-commerce a lot less stressful.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    There are many things you can do to grow this store and I believe this is one of the biggest strengths. Here's what you can do:

    *expand ad campaign budgets and geographic locations to Canada, Australia, France, and other European countries; right now it's only through FB ads and can be expanded through other ad marketing *create a more seamless website-checkout experience *add new products [BEST strategy in my opinion] *take advantage of Muslim holidays by running specialized sales *reducing costs by stocking in region [i.e. US and UK]

    Skills to have

    No; however some insight into Muslim/Islamic culture would be advantageous. This shop is great for both beginners and advanced e-commerce folks.
