Business Story

Why this business was started

I started this business because I loved the community feel of creating a space for LGBTQIA+ people. I enjoyed making designs that highlighted our pride! Seeing people wear my designs at Pride events always made me very happy. It is an amazing community!

The reason of selling this business

I'm selling this business because I'm no longer able to balance my other job and this store. Someone who has the time to dedicate to creating organic content (or paid ads) would be a better fit for the store.

What's involved in running this business

The store is pretty automated - I create designs on CANVA, or I pay a graphic designer to make an design I have in mind. I upload designs to Printful, and the items are automatically added to my Shopify store. When I get an order, Printful automatically fulfills the order and ships it out. You will need to answer email inquiries and potentially contact Printful for any order issues (but Printful has amazing customer service and quick turnaround). Also, social media is a big part of running this business. I currently have over 8,000 Instagram followers on the store's Instagram account and 1033 followers on Facebook (also 984 people who "like" the Facebook account). I believe 5-10 hours a week being dedicated to the social media accounts is sufficient.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    In my opinion, I experienced a lot of success pushing organic content through TikTok videos and Instagram reels. I barely put any money into paid ads last year and my revenue was over $113,000.

    Skills to have

    Wear it OUT is an LGBTQIA+ pride store and does experience some homophobia online on social media. Social media skills are a must-have for the store.
