This business is a Drop Ship eCommerce Retailer with a 99% Repeat Customer Rate and a High Average Order Value of $207 per order. The business has many SKU’s in the evergreen office supply vertical. This a largely hands-off business that has become successful organically through word of mouth and ZERO marketing efforts. This Internet business drives sales only from its modern website where it offers a custom tool to users to find the ink or toner specific to their machine. The company has several opportunities immediately available for expanding its current operation. And with no inventory as a cash flow constraint, this can be a lucrative investment for the right buyer right out of the gate.
The business sells remanufactured and compatible printing supplies to multiple industries, including the Healthcare / Managed Care Industry, Trucking and Transportation Industry, Staffing Industry, the Emerging and Growing Cannabis Industry, and the Quick Service Restaurant Industry. With over 8,790 products currently on the market, the business has managed to create a loyal B2B returning customer base via LinkedIn. The company has not needed to expand sales channels or add marketing initiatives and still shows results of over $44,000 in free cash flow.
Sold products are paid for up front and then ordered from dropship manufacturer and supplier distribution centers throughout North America, requiring little maintenance from the owner. Because the company is drop ship, there are no up front inventory acquisitions to constrain cash flow. All cash flow is truly free flow. Current owners dedicate only 7 hours per week to the business, consisting of processing orders and accounts receivables and credit card batch payments. No warehouse, office space or inventory necessary, making it possible to run this business from anywhere with extremely low operating expenses. This is the perfect business for a stay at home mom or dad, or as a “second job” to bring in more cash.
Marketing has been grown organically through direct selling on a free Linkedin account. Current owners put out marking material and posts via Linkedin. Marketing and advertising campaigns could immediately be added utilizing a CCP model, affiliate model, optimizing the SEO, and implementing a monthly email marketing campaign.
Other opportunities for immediate scale are available, including by adding SKU’s, and diversifying inventory to include other office supplies along with breakroom and janitorial supplies. Traditional e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Walmart, Newegg and others are waiting to be explored. Other opportunities include a managed print service, and dedicating resources to improving the SEO and implementing a PPC program. Also, targeted paid advertising for B2B customers on Linkedin and a monthly email marketing campaign to existing customers. And even more exciting would be the development of an in-house private label to begin your own line of ink, toners and various accessories.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a buyer to take on a well-established, U.S. based business in a loyal repeat buyer vertical. Please inquire today.
