This listing is for an ecommerce business created in Jan 2016 in the beauty niche. The business sells a high-end hair styling tool via five Shopify sites, each focused on a country: AU, US, UK, CA, NZ. Each site capitalizes on a variety of organic and paid advertising, providing a diverse traffic stream. The business sells several brands, including their own privately manufactured brand which is the best seller. The business has nice year on year growth and requires low work hours from the Seller.
This business has an edge on the competition because there are very few companies around the world providing the quality that this business is able to offer. Another edge is the variety of colors and styles. The original brand was started around 20 years ago, but was limited to Australian production. Since purchasing the business, the Seller expanded the online presence and visited the business's current main factories, ensuring the quality specifications and allowing the business to scale the production.
Traffic streams include Google organic, Google paid, Bing advertising, Facebook Paid, Facebook, Instagram organic, and Instagram Paid. Six suppliers are located all over the world from China, Japan, Australia, Canada, and Taiwan. The business has exclusive arrangements with some of these suppliers which will transfer to the new owner. Although 95% of sales come from the website, the business also wholesales to a couple of retailers.
All links have been built with guest blogging. Blog posts, graphic design, and product descriptions are all outsourced and supervised. Adwords management, customer service, and social media are also outsourced by the Seller. Social media is very targeted to hairdressers who use this product for their work. The business also uses influencers from time to time. There are also three contractors who manage the day to day fulfillment to a third party logistics center. All employees are aware of the sale and look forward to continuing with the new owner.
The business has been focusing quite heavily on expanding international SEO recently. Though there hasn't been much of a return as of yet, this could be a potential benefit to the buyer as the groundwork has been done for future earnings. Also, thanks to a significant drop in the cost of goods recently, the profit margins will be positively affected next quarter.
