Gadget Blu has become a trusted brand in the mobile gaming community by offering practical accessories and gadgets to improve the mobile video game experience.
This is an ideal acquisition for a buyer interested in growing and developing a brand in a booming video gaming industry. This business is over 2 years old and its operations and systems are well-established. Our customer base is loyal and engaged. We have worked with the same supplier from China for over a 1 year. The supplier is eager, motivated and able to provide 7-10 day shipping from China to US. We also have a fully trained VA from the Philippines that has been with the business for almost a year and a half that handles all the customer service and order fulfillment with the supplier.
How does your business make money?
Gadget Blu sells video game accessories and other consumer electronic products. This is a 100% drop-shipping model. Our supplier in China ships products directly to consumers, so there is no need to purchase quantities of stock, store any product or ship products.
Most of our traffic is generated through Facebook and Instagram ads. We have not tapped into massive potential of alternative marketing avenues such as Google Ads, email marketing, YouTube advertising, free traffic or social media influencers. Additionally, we’ve primarily targeted US based consumers so there is great potential into global expansion.
We have a popular line of mobile gaming products that are individually branded with unique product names and professionally designed logos. In addition to mobile gaming products, Gadget Blu also offers a wide range of other consumer electronics products listed on the site as easy up-sells.
Why should someone buy this business?

Why are you selling this business?
I started the website as a side income for my family because my primary job is for a non-profit with limited income. I had no prior ecommerce or online marketing experience but invested in a course and used that to grow a lucrative side income.
In early 2019, my primary job responsibilities increased and has consumed much more time. Although the e-commerce business does not require tons of time to manage, I am selling because I am not able to provide the necessary attention to take it to the next level.

About the Seller
I started Gadget Blu with zero online marketing and ecommerce experience. All I knew was that I needed to make some additional income for my family. Using a single dropshipping course, I was able to achieve my goal of providing for my family.
I recently had a promotion at my primary job and am no longer able to give Gadget Blu the attention needed to grow it any longer. I'm confident that a future owner with experience in online marketing will be able to make a lucrative profit!
