Haven't been operating since October '17. No time to manage the store, Facebook page, etc. Info below!
What is included in the sale? Domain + Shopify account configured with all necessary plugins for a turnkey business. Email List: 82,500+ opted in. Facebook Page: 164,000+ followers. Instagram Account: 1,700+ followers. Supplier/Product list set up in shopify with 180+ products. All advertising assets (images, gifs, templates, etc) Gmail account for customer service. You'll simply need to set up an AliExpress account to use my products and suppliers and you're good to go.
What is required to keep the business operational? It does a handful of organic sales a week through search engines, but a majority of the traffic came from Facebook Advertising, Newsletters, Facebook Page promos, etc. You'd need to start emailing the list again, posting to the facebook page, and put up some advertisements on your preferred ad channel to get it rolling again. Why are you selling the business?
Facebook Ads started taking a majority of my time beginning in May. Largely, I've lost interest in continuing the business and have grown other side businesses into enough to keep me busy full-time and provide enough income. Rather than letting it die, someone could come in and take over and return it to a profitable business without too much effort.
What marketing initiatives have been used for this business? Facebook Page, Paid Ads (Facebook), Instagram. I also added new items on a weekly basis and emailed out the list with a discount code.
