Business Story

Why this business was started

I decided to start the business to segway from working in a career i didn't particularly enjoy and make a living independently.

I decided shopify would be a great platform to use due to its simplicity and functionality.

I wanted to automate the business and grow the business to 7 figures and beyond.

I also wanted to learn about ecommerce and become adept at ecomm.

I saw a lot of people doing great things on the Shopify platform and due to its simplicity and flexibility i decided to build my site on Shopify.

The reason of selling this business

I have been slowly building the pieces of the business for a couple years but only given it my full attention over the last 3 months or so and growth has been tremendous in that short span of time.

However I'm not currently able to support the business requirements due to external matters that require my attention therefore it is with a heavy heart i have decided to sell this little gem of a ecomm business.

However im will to assist the buyer for a 30 day period after sale if required.

What's involved in running this business

The business is largely automated. Main time draws are Marketing on Facebook Ads, replying to customer queries via email, ordering and product research and product launching.

All of which can be done by 1 individual at less than 14 hours a week at the current or outsourced.

This is a dropshipping store. Suppliers are in place and ordering is automatic / 1 click via the Dropified app. No inventory is held and therefore no costs for sock.

70% PayPal and 30% Credit Card transactions are taken via Stripe.

You will need to respond to around 5 customer emails per day at the current business size which takes around 15 mins or get your VA to do this.

Driving traffic from a paid or free source will become a primary task. The site converts very well with properly targeted traffic. It's not unusual to see conversations at 10% when driving quality traffic.

There are many ways to do this however i have been driving all my traffic via Facebook Ads with retargeting and auto-email follow up via Klaviyo for abandoned carts. Emails are all setup and active.

There is also an active affiliate program via Refersion which is automated. However you much release payments manually periodically to affiliates. This can be done with a single click.

This business is a well oiled as they come and with good traffic it's set to do huge numbers and has shown its capable of this in the very recent past.

This business was founded: over 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 14 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would look into working with a media buyer/agency to scale ads profitably and also hire VA's to do product research and ordering. Also a look at expanding cross and upsells is recommended.

    Skills to have

    Its as easy to run as any ecommerce store could possibly be. As long as you know how to click a mouse and run targeted traffic your good to go.

    Ordering is the most complicated thing there is to learn and that is not much more than a point and click affair.

    Organic traffic is not responsible for any revenue at this time therefore you either drive paid ads traffic from Facebook Ads or Google search or similar while working on SEO if you desire organic sales also.

    Therefore i would recommend you have a good grasp of at least one paid traffic method before you buy if you want to generate sales from the start.

    Im happy to assist you with FB Ad creatives where possible after sale to get you moving if desired.
