For sale is a successful Amazon brand and onlineshop founded in 2016 and specializing in the sales of accessories for men and women. In the last 12 months, the company generated a gross revenue of 180,234.78 EUR, as well as an SDE of 42,708.58 EUR, giving it a margin of 23,70%.
The fully handcrafted products manage to balance timeless and yet modern design. The product range includes watches in 16 different models and colors, wristbands in different designs, as well as bracelets in various sizes and colors. Overall, the company sells 30 parent ASINs.
The seller spends about 10 hours per week working for the company.
The products are sold on Amazon marketplaces Germany, UK and France, though they are stored only in Germany and exported to UK and France. 90% of the revenue is generated on the German marketplace.
The goods are furthermore sold via the in-house online shop as well as on stylelounge.de, a price comparison platform for fashion. A small network of dealers also exists, consisting of retailers and fashion boutiques in Germany. However, these additional distribution channels currently yield an insignificant revenue (about 1,000 EUR/month). There is still a lot of room for growth here.
The company successfully uses Amazon pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns with the following ad structure:
- Per product (i.e. per color variation): 1 auto and 2 manual campaigns
- Per product group: 1 auto and 1 manual campaign, and 1 headline search ad (HSA)
In addition, some articles are promoted and retargeting campaigns conducted via Facebook ads. There is a lot of growth potential in this area.
The company also has instagram cooperations with reputable German and French influencers and has furthermore negotiated special conditions with influencer agency “Bloggerkartei.de” and full service Amazon agency “Namox.de”.
Suppliers and logistics
There currently exist business relationships to three suppliers:
- Supplier 1: This business relationship exists since 2016 with very good personal relations to the company’s specific contact. The supplier possesses comprehensive knowledge about brand-specific packaging and product features.
- Supplier 2: This business relationship exists since 2017 with very good personal relations, as well as a great relationship to supplier 1 (packaging supplier).
- Supplier 3: This business relationship exists since 2017 with very good personal relations, including individual, self-created designs with their own molds (casting molds and tools).
If the customary volume is exceeded, volume discounts may be offered by all suppliers.
The company is about to launch a new, independent product with individual design in 3 variations. The product is currently being manufactured and will probably be sold starting at the beginning of October 2018.
The company puts great emphasis on packaging and the customer’s first impression. Product instruction manuals with valuable assistance and the brand history are enclosed in every delivery. Clients highly value this attention to detail, the high quality, as well as the courteous customer support.
A brand name was registered at the DPMA, but was ultimately rejected. This means that the brand name also can’t be registered by any other company.
