BJJ Top Supplies
Hello! I am selling my MMA/BJJ store to anyone that is interested in combat sports gear and apparel. The focus of my store currently is on BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). If you wanted to broaden your market, I own the domain MMATopSupplies.com so it would be easy enough to change and it would be included with the sale. Also included is all my social media accounts, organized files, contacts, documentation, and all of my email subscribers. I have gained a lot of good organic traffic over the years which will save you time and money getting established. I can help get you going in the right direction and provide support after the sale as well. Contact me for more details if you are interested. Thank you!
Here are some answers to common questions:
Question: Can you share more info about site's background, operations, margins etc?
Answer: I started this in 2014 as a retail store in Southern California selling MMA gear and apparel such as BJJ Gi's, Gloves, Shirts, Shorts, Rash Guards, and just about everything else related to combat sports. A couple of months after opening the store, I launched the website MMATopSupplies.com using Big Commerce. I ran both the brick and mortar store and online store at the same time and used the same inventory for both. This worked out great as both avenues generated a good amount of traffic and sales. In December of 2015 I closed the brick and mortar store and moved out of state so I just had the online store. At that time I moved to a 100% drop-shipping store because I could no longer house products to ship. I have been running things single handedly and with a demanding new full time job, I just don't have the time needed to run this site any longer. My total sales since opening the store in 2014 are $159,375 with a net profit of $82,142. My main expenses were product purchases (actual inventory and drop-ship purchases) and Google ad campaigns.
Question: How many suppliers do you have? Are your they located in the states? Are you in a good standing with them? Would they be willing to get on board with a new owner?
Answer: Since I switched to 100% drop-shipping, I currently use about 7 suppliers and they are all in the United States. I have a good relationship with each of them and know my reps by name. I still hold accounts with my other vendors that don't allow drop-shipping as well. I see no reason for them not to be on board with a new owner as long as you have a valid business license.
Question: What are your margins like? Would your suppliers be willing to drop-ship? Would they be willing to sell items in bulk so you can ship yourself to improve margins?
Answer: Margins on drop-shipping are always going to be less then buying product and shipping yourself. For drop-shipping, I would say you are looking at the 20%-30% profit range. Margins are generally smaller with drop-shipping but the upside is that you don't buy and ship the item until you sell it, you are not limited by your budget only by the amount of products a particular vendors has, and you don't have to spend money to house inventory. If you are buying and shipping yourself, you are looking at more along the lines of 40%-60% profit.
Question: Do you have any best sellers? I don't need to know which they are right now just that there are a few dominate items.
Answer: Yes, I have best sellers for sure. I can advise you on what to focus on and what will bring you the best ROI.
Question: Can the site be run from (fill in your location)?
Answer: It absolutely can be! That is the beauty of drop-shipping.
Question: Why are you selling?
Answer: As I mentioned, I have been running things single-handedly and have recently made some major life changes such as moving out of state and starting a very demanding full time job. I just don't have the time needed to run this site any longer and I do not want to work with a partner.
Question: Would you be willing to provide a bit of support/mentorship after the initial transition?
Answer: I would most defiantly be willing to help provide support and mentorship for as long as it takes to get you to where you feel comfortable with everything that you are doing. I feel that all of the knowledge I have gained over the years would be wasted if I didn't help someone else succeed. I am currently doing just that for a friend of mine who just opened his first Shopify store a few months ago.
Question: Would you be willing to sign a non-compete?
Answer: Yes I would.
