I'm happy to provide any assistance needed during the transition period. This is not a 'dump and run' deal. We have a lot of dedicated customers and I would like to see the business continue to be successful and serve them well. I'm happy to help in any way possible.
A few FAQ's answered:
1) Why are you selling the business?
The business is straight-forward to run at this point but it does require a lot of time to be invested, which is just something I can't afford these days, hence why I'm selling the site. No long explanation, I'm just in the process of starting a dating site with my partner and well, there goes all of my free time. I'd prefer to sell the site now before my lack of attention starts affecting customer service. And a piece of honest advice, if you don't think you'd be able to put in a few hours everyday into the business, it may not be the best option for you to purchase right now. As with any business, it does require some TLC.
2) How does the business generate revenue?
eCommerce sales. Small to medium priced gifts and collectibles. We started out as a general store and ended up doing really well with a few products within the anime and cosplay area so we started to focus attention more on that since we had a pretty good audience there. That is how the site is set up now but this niche definitely makes it easy to branch out. For example, from Anime, you can easily transition into the Cosplay market or Gaming (video games, PC games, keyboards, mouses, PCs, etc.). From there you can easily transition to general electronics. And so on. Also Anime and Cosplay can cover tons of different TV shows, movies and games. All of these markets have massive product potential. This a passionate audience. Targeting hobbies and focused interests makes for a profitable business.
3) Are there any expenses for the business? If so, what are they?
Expenses include running Facebook and Instagram ads, monthly Shopify account fees, monthly Dropified account fees and of course the products themselves.
4) What marketing initiatives have been used for this business?
Facebook and Instagram ads. Instagram Shoutouts.
One of our biggest marketing assets is our massive email list of over 5600 subscribers, which you will receive as part of the sale. Emails are automatically populated into the MailChimp account (also included in the sale) once customers enter it at the checkout page. When we have a new hot, trending product, we send out an email blast promoting it, meaning we don't have to invest any money into paid ads. Having a list is one of the biggest assets in the Ecommerce business because it's essentially free marketing to our recurring customers.
5) How can the future owner improve the business?
Research new products. Connect with other influencers. I can certainly walk you through the process to research products, connect with influencers and create special offers.
6) How are orders processed?
All orders are processed easily through Dropified (Formerly Shopified App) which an online drop-shipping service that helps you easily import products to your Shopify store from other websites as well as fulfill orders. With just a click, the customer's address and associated items are processed automatically. Oberlo is another option, however, I prefer Dropified as it has better features. This is a pretty good comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lL4jM3KdG-I
7) Who will handle customer service for orders placed prior to the change in Ownership?
If you prefer, I can absolutely handle all customer questions for orders placed prior to the change in Ownership. In this case, I may need access to the email account or maybe you can just forward the questions to me and I can answer them through a separate email. We can discuss this further. I'm here to help.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I'm more than happy to jump on a Skype call to have a chat and do a video view of all of the accounts listed above. I do work 9-5 Mon-Fri, so if my responses are delayed during those times, sorry in advance. Evenings and weekends are my best times.
At this stage, the business is fairly self-sufficient. On-going operations will include, researching and finding new products to keep up with the latest trends and transition away from old products when margins start thinning out due to competition, continuing the Facebook and Instagram ads to keep generating traffic, connetcting with more influencers and occasional customer service.
