Why this business was startedI started this business as a side project when I was studying abroad in Thailand. I put in the time to list the products and find products that were selling well on similar websites. The part that I struggled with was the advertising. I have no experience selling through social media, which is where I targeted most of my customers.
The reason of selling this businessAs a disclaimer, let me say this is the framework for a store that you can take any direction you want. What you are buying is the time saved to set up the store, the store layout, logos, email integration, the social media accounts, finding products, etc. This store is not generating tons of revenue. I am selling to give someone the backbone to start their online business and just saving them about 80-100 hours of work of startup monotony. If that time is worth $200 to you, there you go! The reason I am selling is b/c I started a full time job and I don't have the passion or drive to continue and would love to pass the baton to someone who is starting out and has some more social media experience than me or is ready to grind and test products or build this into a brand.
What's involved in running this businessI use Oberlo so the sale and import of products (mostly from ali) are really easy. Day to day tasks include looking for trending products and importing them into the store, posting on Instagram and Facebook, and creating, running, and monitoring ads. It can be as little or as much time as you want really. I don't have a phone number and do all the customer service through email, which is not too much.
Logo and branding assets
I will allocate all of my social media accounts as well as my store to you. I have about 100 followers on all my accounts. I will give you passwords.
Social media accounts
Personal support after sale
I am open to helping you get familiar with shopify and importing products and well as the little experience I have with running the ads and writing copy. I can't dedicate a ton of time, but promise a couple hours a week for the first month if needed.
How to grow this businessIf I were to start over, I would grow my business into a brand. I think it is difficult to close business after seeing an ad once from an unknown brand. I didn't have any problems getting people to my store, I had problems getting conversions. Build a brand and establish a relationship with your customers. That would be my plan if I had the time and money and the biggest thing, passion, for this business
Skills to haveHighly encourage you to have experience with fb ads, instagram influencer marketing, and google ad words. Getting people to your store and retargeting is key.
