Facts and Figures
With a deep passion for fishing and the outdoors, we had a vision to build the best quality fishing shirts out on the market. Knowing the quality of material that we can produce is not only better feeling, but also having a higher UV Protection factor than ALL of our competitors, we decided to build our own brand and grow a following. We saw a big need in the UV Performance Fishing shirt market and found an extremely reliable US manufacturer who is capable of handling all of our production and even handle all of the drop shipping for our orders. Having a lot of experience in online advertising, we've built the brand and developed the online presence without sparing any expense. Bones Outfitter has been featured in some of the top fishing magazines/websites (Coastal Angler, Florida Sportsman, Simply the Best to name a few), as well as being worn by multiple world record holders who actively wear and advocate the brand.

Why should someone buy this business?
Anyone with Facebook marketing experience could likely take this store to the next level, which its waiting and ready to attain. With very little Facebook marketing experience we've generated $170K in sales in only a few short months. Our team will help with any training and on boarding needed to bring the new owner up to speed and set up for success. We just don't have the time to focus on this project, so our loss is quite literally your gain...Business is being sold at a 40% discount from valuation price
How can the future owner improve this business?
If we were not interested in selling the business, we would be focusing heavily on social marketing, developing additional promotions to entice new customers, develop a few seasonal product/designs to swap out as the seasons change. Additionally, we would continue exhibiting at nautical festivals and boat shows to further get the name out and subsequently move more product. We have developed a comprehensive marketing plan to continue growing the business, which will also be presented to the buyer upon purchase.
