Dust & Dance
Shortlisted as a finalist in the British Small Business Awards 2017, Dust & Dance is a truly remote business: you own the brand, the products, have high margins and aggressive growth but you don’t have to touch anything other than your laptop. Appealing to the highly sought after millennial market, Dust & Dance has a high degree of self-marketing through word of mouth and social sharing. Automated email workflows are set up so you can watch the money come in from these campaigns without lifting a finger. With a decent fanbase to exploit through re-targeting and a huge opportunity for customer acquisition as the glitter trend spreads globally. The brand has been left open (non-glitter centric) to diversify further into any areas of fashion/beauty & millennial trends – so where will you take Dust & Dance?!
This branded eCommerce retailer is focused in the red-hot fashionable dance, party and event-specific styling, makeup and apparel accessory niche, focusing (on the much sought after) Millennial-centric and their contemporary music cultures and subcultures, ranging from the underground raver to the EDM mainstream and everything in between. The company sells a large array of private label products, including chunky and fine glitters, face gems, glow in the dark glitter and now biodegradable glitter for face, hair and nails.
Thanks to improved operating processes and efficiency, this company is seeing over 15% year over year growth, as well as a marked decrease in costs and expenses; all while maintaining a 55% profit margin.
This unique retailer utilizes a hands-off fulfillment platform that requires less than 12 hours of time invested weekly by ownership, making for a simple, turn-key business that has realized measurable growth on a mostly organic platform. Currently, owner has suppliers in China & UK manufacture own branded stock, ships inventory to a UK based fulfillment distribution center who handle all orders from shopify (worldwide shipping). SO BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: high margins from owning own products, but hands off automated fulfillment!
Having just scratched the surface of its potential, this retailer has yet to tap its greatest resource yet – Amazon sales channels and FBA fulfillment. Since the company has yet to launch on Amazon – we find this to be the single largest value proposition available to buyers – we believe that the company can at least double in size through a proper launch on Amazon.
This unique retailer is a solid revenue generator that is a prime opportunity for a strategic acquisition by any fashion retailer, but also offers a fantastic and easy entry into the online retail space for a new entrant into eCommerce segment – it is rare for a margins-maximized eCommerce retailer to come available that is seeing this kind of growth and overall platform improvement all without touching the power of Amazon, the #1 destination for consumer products. This is an acquisition opportunity that is not to be missed!
PLEASE NOTE: assets include shopify store, domain name, social media accounts, mailchimp database (17.5k sign ups), INVENTORY (can be shipped), all IP, photography, branding, supplier contacts etc.
ALSO: Lat years revenue was in fact higher at $278,776.02 due to some additional revenue streams outside of shopify (wholesale and events - only scratched the surface here, huge potential to increase this and have a lot of fun if you like music festivals too!)
