Business Story

Why this business was started

I'm a young entrepreneur that loves challenges. Since I was only working 65 hours/week, I wanted to start another business that I could run part time. That's when I opened the catmarket.shop. The catmarket.shop is an online drop shipping business. This means that we never saw a single product. We would import it from AliExpress and put it on our site, then promote it on facebook or instagram and when the customer would order it from our site, we would simply use an app called Oberlo to order it from AliExpress.

The reason of selling this business

I first opened the catmarket.shop because I wanted a part time business that could be profitable quickly. I have 2 other businesses that take most of my time. I have a mortgage brokering business and a real estate business. I'm having problems with my real estate business and I know it's going to take me at least a couple of years to put everything back to normal. I'd have to work 120 hours/week to keep up and it is just impossible. So I prefer to just sell thecatmarket.shop and start a new E-commerce in a couple of years when everything is back to normal.

What's involved in running this business

The new owner would need to learn Facebook/Instagram ads, run advertising campaigns, fulfill orders, search new products, import those products, answer customers, etc. All of those thing can be done under 20 hours/week if done correctly, but the owner could put a lot more in advertising research.
Time to run this business: approximately 20 hours per week

How to grow this business

Since we are a drop shipping store, we would eventually import more products from AliExpress. We would also put more money into facebook ads and more time managing our social media pages.
