Why this business was started
I wanted to learn more about dropshipping. I have learned a lot. This store isn’t a failure. It just didn’t get the attention you are supposed to give a business. I had the work from home Dream when I started this business. I started a few other ventures and no longer have time to pay attention to this store.
The reason of selling this business
I have a few other opportunities I am playing with. I don’t play the long game when I start something. I see if it makes money now and then I move on. I’m all about finding the next fun thing to do or look at.
What's involved in running this business
Keep marketing. Update the products and descriptions to better optimize SEO and maybe remove half of what’s there. The store is a free store that someone signed me up for an affiliate account for. I pay 14 a year for the domain. So there is lots to do when you buy it. You don’t have to pay for a monthly paid plan unless you exceed the product limits. I think the theme is the best part about the store. Plenty of potential but you need to market on social media and ads.

How to grow this business
Design a logo. Facebook ads and google AdWords. Brand the store. It is a simple dropshipping store with plenty of products. It has potential. I have even had repeat visitors. Optimize each individual description per item. That would probably save this store and it could see sales if more work was put into it. I put over 1k into just ads alone and I believe buyer faith is put into a description. As I said, it needs attention and I want to sell this store to someone who can give it that attention and drive it to success.
Skills to have
SEO and email marketing. Facebook pixel and Google AdWords. The ability to research up and coming products. Maybe even rebrand it with a niche and take off most of the products. I think stores with less products may have a bit more success from the quality of ads and marketing than stores with 74 general goods products.
