I started this drop shipping store in Mid February of 2018. I've put a lot of work into paid traffic thru instagram influencers as well as facebook ads. When using instagram influencers, I have been able to generate >50% margins with a 6-9% conversion rate. I do attribute a lot of the successes i've had to my ability to market, but I have also tried to form a legitimate brand which I think I have been relatively successful in doing. Along with the sale, you get an instagram account with about 250 followers, and a facebook page with about 40 likes. I haven't put as much time as I would've liked into growing my social media presence on facebook, so that could be improved upon. You will also get my facebook ads that I have set up. Facebook ads are the area that I have been struggling with. I haven't been profitable on FB yet although have gotten really close. I have experimented with different targeting MANY times as well as ad copy, offers, etc. and have been borderline break-even. If you are great at facebook ads, I think that my products will sell. All of my traffic is paid traffic. I am selling this business because I have had success with this store but want to branch into another area of drop shipping in a different niche as well as focus more on affiliate marketing. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Thanks.

Ad costs vary greatly depending on advertising medium
This store has proven that it is a profitable store, and if someone with more experience with facebook ads can get the facebook ads profitable, this store will generate passive income. I have already proved that money can be made with this store via instagram influencers... I know that the products "work". Also, I have not spent time on email marketing so I think that is something that whomever buys this store can take better advantage of.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Email marketing, better facebook ads.
What work have you put into the store?
I have put a lot of work into this store since I started in February. I have done lots of facebook ad testing and testing on different copy writing.
