Xiro Watches | Designer Watches for Free!
My girlfriend and I launched this business in December of 2016 and sold $350 worth of watches in the first couple weeks of launching with just free IG marketing methods. Xiro Watches uses a different business model than most ecommerce sites and attracts more attention from buyers than your typical storefront. Unfortunately, we left the country to travel for several months just a month after we launched and have not had time to continue running the business. This store has a ton of potential and we would love to keep it but unfortunately we are both back at work full time and don't have any time to run it.
Note the store is currently 'paused' so you won't see the shipping & handling details at checkout. Canada shipping is $10USD, USA is $13USD and rest of the world is $15USD. Adding more than one watch to an order reduces the S&H.
Included in the Sale: -Complete website, images and branding including theme files -Almost 1 year old .com domain -IG account with over 1000 followers -Mailchimp account with over 100 subscribers -FB account -Kiva account -Custom toll free number (via twilio) -5 watches (left over from our initial order) -200 5x7 poly bubble mailers -200 business card sized 'thank you for your order' cards -1 month of support to get you up and running asap
Business Model: All watches (currently two styles) on the site are free. Customers just pay a small amount for shipping and handling. The cost of the watches is built into the shipping and handling fee. We are based in Canada and were able to ship the watches ourselves using 5x7 bubble mailers via regular post. We also sourced a great fulfillment company in the US that would be easy to transition to. We also shipped from the US ourselves and were able to make more profit as shipping costs were generally lower. You can run this business from anywhere, or switch to Oberlo and dropship if you wanted to.
Branding: We created the custom branding and logos. Everything is original.
Social Media: Included in the sale is our IG account with over 1000 engaged followers. I'll show you the methods we used to grow the account and build an email list of 100+ people that we used on launch day. Also included is the FB account which has a few followers but never got the attention it needed.
Marketing: We have only used free IG marketing methods so far. Growing the IG account using influencers in the space would bring in much more traffic and sales. FB ads would also work well to grow revenue.
Supplier: We ordered samples from several suppliers on Alibaba and found a great manufacturer with good quality watches at a low cost. They have several styles and will customize watches with logos, colours etc if you like.
Website: The site is built on a premium, mobile friendly theme and customized to make it simple and easy to navigate. I will include the original theme files and the contact for the developer on upwork if you want to make changes.
--//-- Feel free to ask questions you may have if you are a serious buyer. If you're just looking for supplier details or cost breakdowns to copy the site, don't waste your time.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
