Business Description

We function as an online reseller for some of the top Outdoor lifestyle & Glamping brands in the US. From Glamping Pods, Yurts, Outdoor Saunas, luxury bell tents, tree tents, fire pits, stoves, Solar generators, Coolers & more...we’ve got it all!

How does your business make money?

As an e-commerce site, we make money targeting our advertising through Google Ads (search texts and PLAs) and through social media advertising. We operate a dropship format with some of the top brands in the US and Canada to ensure our products sold are perfect for our target audience. Our margins are usually 15-25%.

Why should someone buy this business?

With luxury outdoor living and glamorous camping (Glamping) taking charge in North America, we have designed the first website where you can fully design and choose from a wide variety of Glamping products to fuel your next adventure to the max! We’ve managed to find suitable and simple ways to dropship a huge variety of Glamping products, all the way from flasks and solar lanterns, to Yurt Kits, outdoor Saunas and Bell Tents. Not only is the Glamping industry been trending massively in Europe, it’s finally caught on in the US!

How can the future owner improve this business?

As the founders of this site, we lacked the funding and resources to fully utilize our Google advertising methods. Although we have several top brands and have been approved by industry pioneers, unfortunately, we could not afford to fund the advertising out of our own pockets due to personal life clashes. As a buyer I would suggest a solid daily limit on PLAs and search text advertising as well as reaching out to business’ and people starting a Glamping resort.

Why are you selling this business?

As recently graduated students and full-time athletes, we launched the website as an attempt to help fund our careers. Although the website is phenomenally presented and the first of its kind, as well as SEO friendly, we did not have the resources financially to compete with a couple google ads, as were funding the site out of our pockets. Though the dropship competition for Glamping is very limited which was great for us, we simply could not find the time or money to succeed long term.

United States

I'm a professional tennis player and Finance graduate. I am English but educated in the US and E-Commerce is an area of real interest for me. I'm an avid Golfer and have spent time living in Italy as well. I speak 3 languages and love reading in spare time, as well as learning about the art of investment and portfolio management.

As a way to help fund my career I teamed up with a friend and also athlete from Illinois who had recently been involved in the industry. Both eager to help fund our careers we launched the site in about 4 months. Though pitching the idea well enough to establish a relationship and an agreement with various industry pioneers and brands, we did not study the data well enough to realize that just the two of us could not fund the site out of our own pockets. It is a beautiful designed site, organic with 22k monthly Pinterest viewers. We are sad to see it go, however we hope the following buyer will take advantage of the potential in this growing market.
