Business Story

Why this business was started

I am a full-time working Mom from Raleigh, North Carolina. After having kids, I wanted more sustainable options for our family and wanted to make it easier for other moms and families to make more earth friendly choices. Green Ocean Co. is dedicated to providing high-quality products that are earth conscious and promote sustainable choices.

I also wanted my business to give back and to support other amazing companies that are doing great work in cleaning the earth. A majority of our customers are very focused on sustainability and also give a portion of their proceeds to good causes. Making a purchase from Green Ocean Co. no only means you are supporting our cause, but you are supporting the causes of all of our wholesale partners and that is a very awesome feeling.

The reason of selling this business

I'm a full-time working Mom of two boys :) and while I absolutely love Green Ocean Co., I've grown it as far as I can take it and would love for someone with excellent marketing skills and a passion for sustainability to take it to the next level!

What's involved in running this business

Owning a successful shopify store requires someone who loves marketing and knows how to drive traffic to your store! I've built a great starting point via google ads, social media and newsletters but the right owner of Green Ocean Co. will be able to build and execute a detailed marketing strategy and plan (google ads, social ads, social media posts, email marketing, etc). Outside of marketing, full-filling orders on a daily basis to meet shipping expectations is another large portion of owning this store. Managing and fulfilling inventory on a weekly or monthly basis is also required.

This business was founded: over 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 15 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Green Ocean Co. has TONS of potential! There is a definite growing market for sustainable household options. I receive emails from customers all the time who love our shop and are happy to support a great cause. Green Ocean Co has a lot of room for growth specifically within social media. I have primarily focused my marketing spend on Google Ads but there is a ton of potential in growing a social following and building campaigns on facebook, instagram, tictock, etc. I've built a solid foundation for the right person to take Green Ocean Co. to the next level!

    Skills to have

    You should definitely be passionate about sustainability! My customers care that everything from my products to my packaging are as plastic free and earth friendly as possible. They also love that 1% of our sales are donated to cleaning oceans through our membership with 1% for the Planet. This should continue to be a priority as the company grows.
