Business Story

Why this business was started

We decided to start this business to make money and to create ourselves a quality e-commerce site. Furthermore, we wanted to showcase our design, business management and community management skills to see whether or not we could build a profitable business. The goal was to put a first foot in the world of online commerce and to make customers discover the 3D lamps. It was a kind of challenge

The reason of selling this business

We want to sell this site because with the studies, we do not have enough time to deploy the full potential of our products. We spend a maximum of 1 to 2 hours a week on order management and community management and we already have an average of about $800 in monthly sales. If we had more time, the site would be even more a reference.

What's involved in running this business

You must manage orders via Ali Express, reply to customers by e-mail, showcase products and offers via Facebook and Twitter pages.

This business was founded: over 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 3 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    We are expanding, we have created trust with our suppliers: now they offer us a complete catalog and very low rates. In addition, we have opportunities with the international market because for now we are leader in France (despite our young age) but we have not yet focused on the global market. Translating the site will allow you to find thousands of additional customers. Strong partnerships have been created with French influencers for free, if you ask them, they will showcase you on Instagram and Twitter. Our Twitter account has a strong potential and a strong fan base on which you can base yourself to advertise (thus sales) for free thanks to the power of Twitter. Our customers send us many photos of the products they have received and allow us to have a large database of photos that appear to us which will help you to make quality social advertising. As our suppliers trust us, we can now create custom lamp designs and therefore have products that can not be found elsewhere (for example, the Familia lamp on the site is exclusive to our store). Finally, we have niches of new products that fit perfectly on the site, with a new supplier that has been tested and certified for dropshipping.
