Online Store for Sale - $2800 in sales/mo with no advertising!

Recommended Posts

Are you fed up with the day-to-day in the shop? Ready to shift gears and make money without breaking your back?

 

Our online store is for sale. Owner wants to put his sole focus on the projects we have in the shop so that he can wrap them up and retire. Our online store averages $2800 in sales per month with absolutely no advertising. There are many more items we could add to increase sales, but being that we are a two-person operation we have too much going on to properly manage and advertise the website.

 

Here are the details from the listing:

  • Brand has existed since the late 90s, re-branded in 2008 when we moved and expanded our offerings
  • Well-known name in the Corvette community
  • We offer solutions that no one else in the Corvette and GM high performance field offer
  • Currently monetized solely through ecommerce transactions
  • Site platform- WordPress with Ecwid for cart ($17 per month); Knownhost VPS hosting ($35 per month)
  • Will include domain, Facebook page, and Twitter account
  • Site currently only includes products we have researched and developed, but we have accounts with several major parts distribution companies and those parts could easily be added to the site and dropshipped to customers
  • Training available for 30 days following purchase. Buyer has the option of continuing to buy products from us, or buying rights (cost of which is included in sale of site) to the proprietary info (preferred). Buyer will need to take over the before and after sale support.
  • Owner is retiring and downsizing. The site has never reached its full potential because we also run a busy repair shop, write books, and travel to seminars, etc. We have not advertised because we do not have the proper time to devote to the website. Owner prefers to continue with the repair side of the business and sell the online portion of the business.

 

Please contact me if I can answer any questions. Thank you!

      Today is the first day of summer, and we are still dealing with the dreaded COVID-19.  However, there are positive indicators that business will be better than expected this summer.  People will be taking more road trips, will avoid airplanes, trains and Ubers and will take to the roads in record numbers.
      Gear up for a great summer and look for opportunity with each vehicle visit.  Perform those multipoints as if your business depends on it….why?....Because it does!
      We have a lot to be thankful for. Keep positive, be a leader and thrive!

      Has the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacted your auto shop business? If it hasn't yet, it has the potential to do so soon. Please share what you are currently doing, how your business is impacted, what plans you have in place, etc.
      Some things to consider:
      Do you have a plan in place should you or one of your employees become ill? With school, event, and business closures, how will this affect your shop? Are you sending anything to your customers in terms of sharing your plans around keeping your customer and employees healthy and doing your part in your community? Many small and large businesses have been sending email communications to their customers. Are you marketing to your customers in terms of not delaying car repair, should there be a need to temporarily close? Are your parts suppliers sharing their plans, should the pandemic affect supply chains?  Are you stocking up on business and shop necessities? Please share your experience in this topic and stay healthy!
      In the media:
      The coronavirus and its growing tally of sick and dead victims around the world have been roiling financial markets, prompting countless hand-washing reminders and ruining more than a few vacations, and that’s before anyone knows exactly how widespread the effect will be on the automotive industry, including your local repair shop.

      “By mid-March, the shortage of supplies will be felt and members are projecting they’ll experience disruption through May or June,” even if operations in China soon get back to normal, said Stacey Miller, senior director of communications at the Auto Care Association, a trade group representing 150,000 auto aftermarket and service businesses.

      For many of us, it's been a wild ride the past few months. We had to take care of everything, making tough decisions, dealing with banks and the SBA and running the shop from the trenches. But, with things looking better each day, it’s time that we get back into the role of building and operating the company. 
      For many, the COVID-19 crisis is far from over.  However, the sooner we begin to adjust and build for the future, the better off we will be.
      Shop Owners are among the hardest working people on the planet. We find ways to get through the most difficult situations. I have no doubt that the lesson’s learned from this crisis will make us stronger and more successful.

      I get asked this many times.  How would I use a custom mobile app if I had one for my shop?
      Take a moment to think about that.
      Imagine what you could do IF you had a custom mobile app for your vehicle owner customers to download, interact with, and engage with your brand?
      I'm noticing this trend in the food industry, retail industry, and now even in the medical industry.
      What about our auto repair industry niche?
      We're working on version 7.3, and part of what I love to do is get great feedback and build it into our upcoming versions.
      What about you.
      What type of features would an auto repair professional like yourself want in your dream app?
      Please share your ideas here and my hard working team of app gurus will get on it!

      Most websites and website designers these days follow the guideline of 160 characters when writing website page meta descriptions. When they are longer, Google just truncates them to 160...well until December 2017 when Google decided to accept that number to be around 300 with some recommending to make it 320. If your web designer wrote your website page descriptions shorter, you aren't taking advantage of the description tag to better your SEO and possibly your click-through rate. It's time to look at your website pages to be sure.
