Assets Included in the Sale
This listing is for an eCommerce business created in October 2018 in the art and hobbies niches. The Shopify store features unique painting products. The business has a strong social following with 64K total followers. Included in the sale is a fully automated email list that has generated considerable revenue for the business.
The business earns 100% of its income through eCommerce. There is an Amazon Seller Central account included in the sale, though sales generated through this account are minimal. The top traffic channels are social (38%), direct (22%), and other (17%). This traffic comes from the US (60%), Canada (8%), and the UK (5%).
The business works with artists to launch new artwork products periodically. These high-quality products are created through a custom partnership with the artist who then earns a commission on the sale. Once these designs are created, the core product is manufactured in China. An NDA and licensing contract with the manufacturer will be passed on to the Buyer. The seller also has two warehouses in the US that store inventory. Worldwide shipping is offered through USPS and DHL. The Seller has products from their top-selling artists ready to pass over to a Buyer.
The Seller spends 10-15 hours a week on the business. A team of staff is in place to help with the day to day operations but tasks for the Seller include checking in with the managers, processing payments/refunds, monitoring paid ads, artist relations (finding and licensing new products), and checking in with the developers to monitor CRO improvements.
The team is made up of three full-time staff members: a customer support manager and two customer support staff. The part-time staff includes a custom product designer, a senior developer, web graphic designer, email graphic designer, US product support assistant, senior media buyer, and China sourcing agent. All employees have agreed to stay on with the new owner. An SEO agency is employed by the Seller to help the business with keyword ranking. New content isn't published regularly, but periodically on the advice of the agency. The agency would also be willing to continue working with a new owner.
The email list features 74K subscribers and is already set up with over 150 campaigns, 13 active automation flows, and multiple segmentations including member tiers, opt-ins, repeat buyers, and VIPs. The revenue generated from the email list according to the Klayvio account in 2021 is $1,170,838 (48%,) flows: $555,326 (23%) campaigns: $615,512 (25%).
