Hi, have not been long finishing and publishing this website.... it has not been active for much longer than a month, and due to ill health I haven't the time to market it as I would wish, i.e. through social media etc. The store is all set up for drop-shipping, with the best dropshippers I have ever worked with, especially if you are based in the USA or Canada, or if you are undertaking you main marketing in either the USA or Canada - then there is no worries over customs duty,
Why should someone buy this store?
It has taken my over 12 months to undertake the due diligence required to choose the right partner to use for dropshipping - obviously the best (in my opinion is Shopify) - then there is the problem of finding the dropshippers who will work with you - and don't fall for the ones who want £300 in their bank (moneybox) before they will release any orders.
How can the future owner improve the business?
The future owner can improve the business easily, just spend time marketing, especially through social media starting with facebook, instagram and pinterest.
What work have you put into the store?
I have put three months getting the store to the point where I am pleased with it.
Logo and branding assets
As stated, the web-site is built and live. All the linking is done, and all images are downloaded and are resident in the library. There are images for every product and every category - there are roughly 4000 images being utilised by xpoze. (Currently no advertising is taking place), the store has 65 influencers on instagram and they are "ready and waiting"
Personal support after sale
After-sale explanation will be available to the new owner. Full details of the wholesaler and how they operate, and the backup the new owner will also receive from them.
Some of the images are unique to the site, the majority relate to the particular product, straight from the manufacturer and others have been gathered by me from freely available images on the internet. None of the images are copyright.
How to grow this business
If I were not selling over the next five years I would continue with the business as is, but undertake marketing through various avenues, firstly attacking social media - as stated I already have 65 influencers available to the new owner on instagram.
Skills to have
It would be beneficial to the new owner to have knowledge of website development of some sort, and a definite advantage of .csv spreadsheets (excel) as most wholesalers have not yet moved onto stock inventory - some have, but you have to pay for their plug-in. You definitely do not have to have any coding experience whatsoever, just a general understanding of how websites operate, i.e. the back-end being where all the work is done, and the front website being where the general public see the results of all your work on the backend.
