“Part of the hard part of selling a business is not just all the mechanics behind the scene, but finding a good buyer who is honest, and who has money, and who isn’t pulling your chain and can actually close the deal. And is reasonable. Those are not inconsequential things to find in a buyer.”
-Andrew Youderian, eCommerceFuel founder
I have an exciting episode today as I am interviewing one of the most awesome people I know, not just in ecommerce but in life in general.
Andrew Youderian is the founder of eCommerceFuel, a vetted community of high 6 and 7 figure ecommerce store owners who help each other grow their ecommerce businesses. The community hosts the annual eCommerceFuel Live event where members get to meet each other in person and share tips and actionable advice on how to successfully run their businesses.
It’s one of the events I absolutely love attending and it seems I’m not the only one who shares this sentiment — event tickets sold out hours after the event was publicly announced.
Andrew launched and sold numerous successful drop shipping ecommerce stores over the years. In this episode we talk about two stores he sold — TrollingMotors.net and Right Channel Radios — and a behind-the-scenes conversation about possibly the most interesting ecommerce store sale he made.
Other things we talked about:
- What eCommerceFuel is and how it started
- A look back on Andrew’s successful drop shipping businesses
- What triggered him to sell his businesses
- His reverse auction sale of TrollingMotors.net
- Finding a good buyer
- Insights about the sale of Right Channel Radios and whether he regretted it or not
- Is it still possible to succeed in drop shipping today?
- SEO strategy tips
