Well-Known Relocatable Craft-Kit E-Commerce Business
Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh
Ref: 13447 J
Hilton Smyth welcomes to the market The Edinburgh Casting Studio. This unique business was established by our clients in 2014. The business currently runs as an online e-commerce website specialising in Body Casting products (www.edinburghcasting.com). The Edinburgh Casting Studio is being offered as a business only opportunity and can be relocated anywhere. Our clients have made this business a success, and are now looking to sell the business to pursue other interests. The business is the world’s largest online Body Casting brand, with an international reputation and over 785,000 followers on social media (www.facebook.com/edinburghcasting). The Edinburgh Casting Studio has a wealth of ready-made marketing material for any future buyer, and has seen three major viral successes in the last 18 months, generating combined views of over 250 million. A single Facebook post in September reached more than 101 million people, with another in February reaching over 212 million people, making the brand recognised and respected around the globe. Our clients pay a modest sum to promote the online posts. The business is receiving around 1,000-2,000 net increase in followers every day, with little cost. The Edinburgh Casting Studio’s Body Casting Kits have proved tremendously popular, allowing their customers to create personalised sculptures from home, with a large family market. Kits available include luxury gifts for babies, families, couples and pets. The business generated a turnover in the region of £353,000 as of the 2017 management accounts, with a gross profit of 72%. Although this is a healthy turnover, we feel there is huge scope to increase this figure. Their Body Casting Kits are so popular, that they often sell out and result in pre-sales of hundreds of orders. Our clients manage the purchasing, marketing and customer service. Currently they spend approximately 2 hours a day managing this. The business can be easily managed by one person, as our clients outsource manufacture and efulfillment to a UK based contract packer. Trade so far has been exclusively UK sales, with the business currently launching EU shipping. We feel with a further expansion of shipping areas, there is little chance to miss out on valuable custom. Our clients have received demand from around the world for their services, from the US and India, to Australia and New Zealand. We are advised that our clients have a general mailing list of over 14,800, and an additional waiting list of another 5,400 contacts awaiting worldwide delivery, more than 1000 of those being potentialdistributors. The business is a streamlined online operation, so can be run from a home or retail premises if desired. Our clients have a fantastic reputation for Body Casting Courses and a Professional Casting Service which they run at their current location. This gives the buyer an opportunity to diversify the business if so desired. A great additional income, with courses for four running at £6,000 per week. No previous knowledge required to do well with this business, and our clients will provide all training needed to understand the casting process, products, systems, suppliers and market in general. Our clients will provide digital content to get the purchaser started with online marketing. This is a fantastic opportunity not to be missed, contact Hilton Smythe for more information.
