Business Story

Why this business was started

This business has been created for someone looking for their own dropshipping general store to help them make their first steps in the ecommerce world. All products on the website have been researched and currently sell well for other websites - so they have a realistic opportunity to sell for yourself.

The reason of selling this business

I am selling this website as I love to design websites for other people to take on and make a success of.

What's involved in running this business

To run this business you will need to learn how to get people to the website - either by Facebook, ranking the website in Google (SEO), Instagram, Google Adwords, or any other paid advertising method.

The new order will also need to place orders from the supplier when a customer buys from the site. The website has been designed with the facility to help complete the order for you.

You will need to take care of customer queries which should not take up too much time to begin with. When you start getting a lot of orders you could take some of your profits to hire a customer support rep to do this for you.

Finally, you will also need to research new products to add to the website and advertise.

If you are unsure how to search for new products and advertise them I can also recommend to training resources that I have used myself.

This business was founded: over 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

Seller‘s Advice

How to grow this business

I have created this website after fully researching every product listed on the website so fully believe you have a fantastic opportunity to make this new business a success. If I were to run this business myself I would absorb the information at the 2 training resources I will provide you with and start to advertise 2/3 products on Facebook and Instagram. As I get a successful product I will increase the amount of money I spend on my advertising to bring in more sales.

I would then advertise more products from the site as well as research more products to add to the website and also advertise these products.

I would then repeat this process until I reach by financial goal. By continually researching new products, advertising them on Facebook & Instagram (and then other advertising channels) I do not see why I could not be making over 100k within 2/3 years.

Skills to have

While you do not have to have any specific marketing skills to start this business I would recommend learning a form of paid advertising such as Facebook. Again, I will provide information on two learning resources to help with this.

You will also need to learn your way around a Shopify website - this can be learnt from Shopify's website and does not require any coding experience.
