Sourcing & Logistics
Products are procured from a manufacturer in Asia. The game design is unique to the company, and exclusivity contracts are in place, which extend to the custom packaging and inserts. Although the current packaging consists of a small cardboard box, the owner is migrating to a bag with a strap to make it suitable for retail sales. The supplier manages everything from customer email updates to shipping orders. However, management prepares inventory in advance to be shipped immediately using a fast-line courier. It typically equates to $4,000 or 500 units, sufficient for ten days, dramatically boosting cash flow.
Between 50 and 2,500 units are dispatched daily, and the supplier uses a plug-in Shopify app to fulfill orders and sync them for customers to receive shipping updates.
Digital Marketing Strategy
Marketing efforts are multifaceted and all performed by the owner. Google Ads are used for search campaigns in each country, primarily targeting brand terms and relevant keywords. Paid ads are also used across social media channels and complement organic content showcasing the product. With Facebook, for example, a new set of creatives is implemented at least every two weeks. Keywords have been set up on all pages and headers through Shopify for SEO purposes, and a strategic upsell has been shrewdly added to increase the AOV. Additionally, management has a remarketing flow set up.
The typical customer has a general interest in golf, is in a relationship and purchasing for their partner, or is a child purchasing for their father.
Workload & Team
The owner dedicated between 10 and 15 hours weekly to the business, focusing primarily on the following tasks:
The business has no employees. However, four freelancers work on an hourly basis in customer service, video editing, and Shopify development.
Tremendous growth and profitability are par for the course under capable new management, and a buyer will have multiple scale avenues at their disposal.
