This listing is for a primarily ecommerce & FBA business created in March 2011 in the apparel & accessories niche selling in the UK, the US, and more. The business focuses on a specific accessory associated with health and wellbeing. The Shopify site brings in 75% of the income, using several lead-generation landing pages. These pages target a variety of applications for the accessory, as well as communities within the product niche. This business is growing and there is a clear path for further growth outlined.
The second top monetization is Amazon FBA (UK, US). The Amazon Seller Central account is included in the sale, and the SKUs have lots of reviews. The business also sells through Walmart and Ebay. The majority of sales, for all monetizations, are in the UK, next, the US, and on to include Canada, most European countries, Asia, the Middle East, South Africa, and Australia. Worth noting, the business has only ever targeted English speaking customers, obviously leaving massive parts of the world untouched.
The Seller is more than happy to provide support for as long as required by the Buyer. There’d be no cap on this. If in 12 months time the Buyer has a question the Seller will be more than happy to help free of charge. The business requires minimal hours, as the Seller had help from a VA who will not be staying with the Buyer. However, if desired, the VA will continue with the Buyer for 3-6 months while she trains the Buyer's VA.
The Seller has designed the products and packaging. While some of them are generic products which the business has branded, the best sellers are the Seller's designs. The Seller created it so that the whole thing (boxed) could be shipped as a large letter size, saving a fortune on shipping and storage. The Seller has a new product in the works at the moment which will be launching shortly. The business tries to bring out something new at least once or twice a year to engage the previous customers and keep the brand fresh. Design work could easily be outsourced, but the Seller enjoyed doing it.
The business has an email list of about 60K active subscribers ... adding roughly 1500 subscribers to it a week, some weeks closer to 2000 (split into the various targeted niches). These are all genuine subscribes from the business's landing pages. All lead gen pages are included with the sale. These pages feed the system with leads and buyers for various verticals mostly originating from Facebook ad traffic and segmented by the vertical the user came through (specific niche). The business also does paid solo emails with national magazines.
Alongside word of mouth and Adwords, Facebook provides a large portion of the traffic. On top of the 36K followers, Facebook is a traffic source from paid advertising. The business occasionally runs competitions for some organic reach, but paid ads far outperform this compared to the time spent sorting it out.
The business has had several international distributors over the years — at present, only in New Zealand and Australia. While this is a small part of the business, it’s still money. Building a strong distribution base in other countries could be something the new Buyer pursues. In the past, this type of distribution has lead to sales in India, USA, Canada, Singapore, and various other countries with agents who came and went. These all tended to focus on offline sales. One of the aforementioned countries' Olympic team even wore the product.
The Seller has some wholesale deals where they act as the ‘middle man’ between the retailer and the supplier, making a little bit off the top. Making products for other companies is a good idea and a good part of the business if the Buyer wanted to go down that route.

Growth & Expansion:
Opportunities for this business include:
There Seller feels are countless ways this business could be grown and scaled. Scaling globally across all paid traffic channels would be the main way to expand the business without changing the way it runs. The majority of traffic is currently from the UK.
Keep adding and testing new verticals. The business is quite unique in the fact that the products can be attributed to many different verticals, that is, specific niches. Just with the four niches, the business has focused on this past year, revenue has tripled over the previous year.
The Seller would expand on the data on file for people who are in pain. With over 2500 reviews on the website, the business has a gold mine for people sharing what they’ve fixed while wearing the products. The business also has a Facebook ad which specifically asks customers for what pain they would like to fix, resulting in over 1000 comments for specific ailments.
Landing pages/creatives/funnels that relate to each problem could be made and used to build big lists to which then sell our products.
Expand product line. The business currently has a solid range of core products which all sell very well. But there are 100’s of products that could be branded/manufactured/ designed from scratch and added to the product line up.
Higher ticket products could be a good way to increase profit.
Build external websites to funnel traffic to the main Shopify site. The new Buyer could outsource this and have the same process replicated across multiple external websites all funneling traffic back to the main site. This is limitless and could form part of a free/SEO traffic strategy where these websites work on autopilot to bring in traffic across 100’s of verticals.
Go into retail and expand with distributors worldwide. It would require reps on the road, product displays and other POS to make it work. Retail could be a very good growth strategy for the new Buyer who could also look at distributors to shift product in volume.
Have a team on the road attending events. It’s labor intensive and you would need a manager to run it along with a team of 2-3 people who’d run the events. It can be a money maker and a good long-term strategy, especially for building the brand within different niches.
Develop the affiliate program/refer a friend system the business currently has. The more paid traffic you flood into this business, the more word of mouth referrals will come in. Scaling using any of these methods will naturally build this business through word of mouth anyway but a solid referral scheme can harness this further.
Grow Amazon. At present, the products are only on Amazon UK and USA. Canada and the other platforms would bring in additional revenue.
In summary, there is massive scope to scale this business in many ways and depending on the team the new Buyer puts in place to make all this happen it would grow significantly. Just by really focusing on Facebook ads and growing the business through other verticals, the Seller has tripled sales in a year.
