Business Story

Why this business was started

I noticed a mutual friend get into ecommerce and start to build their brand in the cosmetic space by using facebook ads, google ads and instagram influences to expand their reach to other countries. I used this as motivation to create my own cosmetic ecommerce store and use the same businesss model to break out of the 9-5 working cycle and start my own beauty business. We started seeing success early on by using instagram influencers to promote our products by giving an honest review and posting to their social media channels. we have turned over up to 500k in 1 calendar year recently.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would grow the store over the next five years by keeping up with using google ads, facebook ads and instagram ads to keep the brand relevant and in the customers eyes. We will transfer accounts over to the buyer. I would raise the budget on the facebook ads to scale and grow the business.

    Skills to have

    Specific skills or knowledge the new owner should have is that you can run this business without any staff. You market yourself through google ads, facebook ads and instagram ads. You fulfill the orders yourself and you organise supplier orders yourself. Specific skills would be using paid ads by constantly changing up your content on your ads and adjusting your daily budget.
