Fantastic opportunity for someone to pick and run with this 10 year old eCommerce business that has essentially been running on autopilot this entire time while still taking in nearly $600 each month in profit.

Built around a unique and demonstrable product, it’s perfect for anyone looking to push a bit of social media / influencer advertising behind it.

Tell us a little about yourself. What’s your background? Did you start this site or did you acquire it somewhere in the 10 year history?

I started this site.

We originally manufactured this product as SimpleTieDimple and it was a bit larger in size, the manufacturing was in the USA at that time. We then outsourced to china and went through some changes in packaging. I have been the owner since this products inception.

My background is in product design, development and manufacturing. 

Where are the clips made? Are you storing them on site and shipping or do you work with a fulfillment company?

They are made in Xiamen China and then the products are DHL air mailed to Central Texas to a ShipBob.com warehouse where they are stored until they are shipped to customers. 

The fulfillment center in Texas handles all fulfillment in a drop-ship like method.

We’ve also been fortunate to have never needed to handled returns in the entire history of this product being sold.

How have you marketed the product and where are your customers originating from?

Youtube
Word of mouth
Some online blogs

Primarily this has been selling organically for the past several years. There is so much potential if someone wanted to put in some marketing efforts.

Can you list a few opportunities for a potential new owner to continue growing the business?

Additional youtube videos, partnerships/sponsorships, youtube promos using grapevinelogic.com. This is a very demonstrable product, perfect for instagram videos or even tiktok. Getting influencers on board to showcase the product in youtube videos and beyond would be fantastic.

Push sales back through big box retailers, Amazon, eBay, and other platforms.
