The Playground Shop
The Playground Shop, LLC was created in the Summer of 2017 as an extension of our other eCommerce Store (The Trampoline Shop). Although The Playground Shop is a dropship-only store, we do not drop ship via Ali Express or any other dropship platform. We are licensed to sell the current brands that we carry and do US dropship-only. We currently have 7 suppliers approved and are in current negotiations to get three more approved within the next couple of weeks.
The Playground Shop is currently for sale and will include: -eCommerce site (powered by Shopify) - Facebook Account - Branding & domain - Access to all files (i.e. price sheets, documents, etc.) - Transfer of all store-related accounts (888 phone number, trust seals, etc.) - Email subscribers (currently 400+) - Automated email campaigns and pop ups - Transfer of all Google Adwords, Bing and Facebook Ad accounts - Training videos that we created for our Virtual Assitant - Transition plan and access to owners for one year
Our business model is dropship only. We carry 0 inventory all the time. The store is mainly managed by my Virtual Assistant in the Phillipines. The Playground Shop currently carries 7 brands and over 500 products. The store's product pages are optimized well enough, as are our PPC campaigns. Our average sale is about $1200. We sell high-end products and since it's dropshipping we don't need to deal with freight carriers or anything complicated.
Our main source of marketing is PPC. We have recently begun campaigns to become more active on Facebook, but 65% of our sales have come through the way of PPC campaigns via Google, Bing and Facebook Ads. We run promotions twice a month (typically created by VA) to attract customers. About 20% of our sales come from the way of organic traffic.
This particular niche is seasonal with an abundant amount of sales during the Spring, Summer and Winter months. Fall is typically a low-season and the months of January and February are also lower, with few consistent sales.
We are currently selling The Playground Shop (and The Trampoline Shop) to focus 100% on our membership site and consulting business. This eCommerce site has extreme potential but our resources are split in half.
This store is great for any new or experienced dropshipper. Our Virtual Assistant would be more than happy to continue to work with The Playground Shop as long as monthly salary continues.
