Business Story

Why this business was started

I was running a Google Shopping Agency for Shopify Stores and in calls with clients I kept noticing that they would ask us if we knew any Shopify developers who could do a quick fix on their store (such as move a button around)...

Or that they were thinking about moving to a new Shopify and if we knew anyone who could help build them a new store.

And we kept referring this type of work over and over again other outside developers or agencies.

Until one day I thought "Why don't we just create a separate development agency and find great Shopify developers to fulfill the work so we could add another revenue stream to our business?"

And so we created Store Mechanics. And in the first 30 days we did $7,982.76 in services with 64% net margin.

This is a great market to provide services to because there are 500,000 active stores running on Shopify, and although most of these will not want Facebook Ads, or Google Ads, or SEO, they ALL need development and design work done on their Shopify Store.

So even if you just worked with 1% of the 500,000 stores, and they spent $20 a month with you, that is a $100,000/month business(500,0001%=5,000$20/mth=$100,000/month).

The reason of selling this business

I have another e-Commerce business that is growing fast and is taking up the bulk of my time. The last month and a half I have been spending less than 1 hour per week on this business.

What's involved in running this business

Right now I currently have other Shopify developers fulfilling the work and I focus on the marketing to bring in new customers. So you can continue this model, or if you are a Shopify Developer you fulfill all of the work youself.

This business was founded: 6 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 2 hours per week
