Business Story

Why this business was started

Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to check out our listing :)

I am the co-founder of a successful digital marketing agency that builds fully automated e-commerce brands for our high-end clientele. I'm proud to say that our agency has created and managed over twenty 6-figure shopify brands in the past two years. We created this website for one of our clients and built everything from scratch. The web design, product research, product listings, advertisements, order fulfillment, customer service, accounting, and much more.

The reason of selling this business

This store was very successful and got consistent sales from the first full month of operation (January 2019) through July 2019. You'll notice that there are two months of negative revenue. This is because China celebrates Chinese New Year during February and March each year. We took a break during this time and resumed operations in April 2019. Overall, our client was very happy with the results. They made over $32k in net profit in about 6 months of operation (see the screenshots below for proof and make sure to send us a message if you want to see the full profit & loss spreadsheet) and would have continued with their shopify store. However, they just gave birth to a newborn son and couldn't afford the time commitment to continue operating the store on an ongoing basis. This means that you have been presented with a great opportunity to take ownership of this shopify store and start up where the previous owners left off. We have already received multiple offers for this store, so please do not wait to submit an offer if you are interested in purchasing it. This is not some fake scarcity tactic. We will be taking this listing down soon. If you are interested in learning more about this store, continue reading below for screenshots, statistics, and profit margin calculations. 👇

What's involved in running this business

This is a very profitable store that has generated over $150,479.52 in revenue and over 7000 orders in the last six months of operation. Yes, 150k in just six months. (check out our pictures below)

Our store has also generated over 276,557 unique website visits during this time. We drive traffic to our website using three primary sources:

• Facebook Ads & Instagram Ads

• Instagram Influencers

• Email Marketing

With this purchase, you will get full ownership of our facebook ads account with all facebook fanpages and pixels. We have experimented with hundreds of facebook ad sets so you don't have to. All of the hard work is already done. You will get our precise targeting strategy, custom audiences, retargeting audiences, look-alike audiences, and all ad images/videos.

We have built an email list of over 36,924 subscribers and use it to drive customers back to the store through our email marketing back-end. We have six comprehensive email sequences that are set up and already running. An abandoned cart sequence, a browse abandonment sequence, a customer thank you sequence, a customer winback sequence, a product review/cross sell sequence, and a welcome series newsletter sequence. These emails are 100% automated and run 24/7. No further set up is required.

This website was designed and built to be a general store that can sell items in any niche. The reasoning behind this is simple. General stores allow for more flexibility. You can sell items that are seasonal, trending, or whatever else comes to mind. Niche stores may do well while the niche is popular, but they will inevitably slow down over time. The benefit of owning a general store is that you will have unlimited room for growth.

There are no physical products in stock nor are they needed to operate this store as all of our products are outsourced and dropshipped. It’s very important to mention that we do not use Aliexpress suppliers. We have negotiated contracts with private manufacturers and suppliers in China so that we avoid all of the negative aspects of Aliexpress. Some of the benefits of using our private suppliers are faster shipping (approximately 7 days to US, UK, CA, AU, NZ and approximately 14 days to the rest of the world), faster processing times (orders are processed within 1 business day with our suppliers which is much faster than the typical 3-7 days of processing time with Aliexpress), lower product costs (on average, our suppliers are able to quote prices that are 30% lower than Aliexpress), and better quality control (each item is inspected for damage/defects before being packed for shipment). Our suppliers are able to source and manufacture any product on Aliexpress, so you won’t be limited in your product selection. There are also no required minimums. You can order products one at a time or you can order them in bulk. They are dropship-friendly, so you will never need to store any products in a warehouse (but if you would like to do so, they have warehousing capabilities as well!). We currently work with a freelancer from upwork who takes care of order fulfillment every day (even holidays). He has years of experience with our order fulfillment process and speaks fluent English. We have developed a strong relationship with him and he has offered to continue fulfilling orders even after the store is transferred over to you :)

We've put a lot of work into this store and it is certainly set up for your success!

• Beautifully optimized website

• Proven facebook ad sets and lookalike audiences

• Email marketing autoresponders are done for you

• Massive email list of over 36,924 subscribers

• You get all logo files, social media accounts, & other business assets

• Low maintenance (everything is automated)

• Low overhead costs (less than $400/month)

• Experienced virtual assistant from upwork

• Optimized sales funnel that makes sales every single day

This is a great investment for those searching for a passive stream of income. You only need to spend about 7 hours each week to make sure that everything is working properly. On a weekly basis, you will want to check in with your virtual assistant to make sure all orders were processed properly. Check the support email to answer any questions (we always answer emails directly because we love talking with our customers, but you can have the virtual assistant do this if you prefer). And then set up advertisements on Facebook and Instagram. In total, this should only take a few hours each week.
