Summary:

This listing is for a dropshipping business created in March 2015 in the beauty niche. The Shopify site features products relating to salons and massage businesses. The business has 18 suppliers all located throughout the US, some with exclusive relationships. This business has strong earnings, proven processes in place, diversified traffic, and requires minimal hours from the Seller.

A full-time VA works with the business. She takes care of all the daily operations including customer service, lead nurturing, negotiation, closing sales, processing orders, and dealing with any issues that come up. The Seller has created extensive documentation of all aspects of the business, including many hours of video training SOPs which cover product selection, customer service, sales, order management, and using the streamlined customer & order management systems.

Over half of the traffic is from paid search. Another quarter is organic from Google. The Seller has focused on Google Ads (mostly shopping), remarketing, some text, and Facebook for dynamic-remarketing-product-listing ads. There is an email list of over 2K subscribers that is not currently being monetized. The Seller has sent some informational emails which link to the blog. These had good engagement from customers. Many people reply to the automated abandoned cart emails and this is often the first point of contact.

A big part of the growth in the fall of 2018 was thanks to optimizing a product line that was already in place. A supplier informed the Seller they should be selling more of a certain brand, so the Seller put some effort into optimizing the product pages, the offers, and the advertising. Now this brand is the current top seller. With over 2000 products across the site, there are many opportunities for the Buyer to replicate this improvement.

*It's worth noting that some costs of sales are carried over to the next month. So for example, the costs were much higher in October because of the record-setting month in September. In October the business also dealt with a few setbacks due to some restructuring from a top supplier.

*Sales for this business are strongest in the Summer and the Fall.

Graph Summary

Opportunities and Risks

Opportunities for this business include:

  • Expanding the sales funnel. The Seller feels that no one in their industry is reaching people at the top or the middle of the funnel. Most people are only selling to those ready to buy.
  • Creating more content. The Seller believes there is not much information online that explains the basics of the main products. They have started this process with positive responses.
  • Optimizing products. A big part of the growth in the last few months has been simply by optimizing a product line that the business already had. A supplier told the Seller they should be selling more of a certain brand, so the Seller put some effort into optimizing the product pages, the offers, and the advertising. Now that brand is the current top seller.
  • Focusing on the high-end market, which would provide the opportunity for much bigger sales.
  • Continuing to establish relationships with important suppliers.
