Lame Ass Chef
A fully functional and polished drop-shipping shop for kitchen gadgets with ample character and style.
Made by a team with tons of design and online retail experience. Original logo and branding.
The website is fully finished and functional, you would only need to expand the inventory and market the shop. There's no sales here, we paused the process as we found that managing drop-shipping listings is not for us. We enjoyed the process of making the website more than actually running it. :) Our experiment in drop-shipping can be your new baby and a nice income.
We have done extensive work on branding and character, this is the main strength of the shop. A lot of tongue-in-cheek descriptions, puns and jokes, putting a new spin on why you need these gadgets. The focus is on modern people that feel playful in the kitchen and also on gift giving of fun, quirky, and playfully insulting kitchen products.
The shop design is based around a fully featured, paid $180 theme, customised and tuned by an experienced designer and marketer.
We have an Instagram account and we have set the theme of how to approach the account and the content, around food and fun. https://www.instagram.com/lameasschef
About the Shopify backend, you will be using the Oberlo app to sync drop-ship products from AilExpress or other sources. There are other alternative apps but we've found Oberlo to be the better of them.
The long term plan would be to establish a presence with drop-shipping and then actually start holding stock in a local fulfilment centre. This would drop the prices and boost sales.
The price we are asking is higher than other starter shops because of the excellent paid theme and polished branding and logo. We have put a lot of thought into this, this is not a patchwork drop-shipping shop.
We won't leave the shop up for sale for too long because the festive season is coming and we'll be too busy to make the transfer from October onwards. So if you need a polished and fun ecommerce let's do it by the end of September.
