The Concept Shop
We help aspiring and serial entrepreneurs and creators design exceptional brands and businesses
Run your dream business
We launched the Concept Shop to help you find and start running your dream business in days or weeks instead of months or years.
Buy a Business
As fellow entrepreneurs we know the biggest challenge you face is coming up with a great idea. Our team conducts extensive research to identify exciting business concepts in profitable niches. We then turn these concepts into full-fledged businesses that are unique, live and ready-to-run.
Design a Business
The second difficulty all entrepreneurs face is getting your great idea off the ground. Our in-house strategists and designers are equipped with all the tools necessary to build and launch your idea with a reasonable investment of time, money and effort.
Ready to build your dream business?
Set up a complimentary consultation to discuss your great idea and how we might be able to bring it to life.
How can I purchase a business?
After exploring our portfolio, once you are ready to move forward you can follow the prompt to request more information or buy the website if it is available for sale.
How do you price a business?
All of our revenue-generating businesses are priced at five times (5x) annual revenue, in line with the generally-accepted rule of thumb for pricing online businesses.
Starter businesses are non-revenue-generating websites. We build a means of monetization into each of these starter businesses and make a modest assumption about how soon you can start earning revenue (and how much). We then use this estimate to influence the pricing.
What happens once I purchase a business?
Once we receive your payment we immediately send you a contract and initiate our simple and seamless transfer process.
This includes providing step-by-step instructions on how to take over the website so you can get started running your new business as soon as possible.
If needed, we will also set up a 30-minute call to personally walk you through everything and are available for 30 days after the transfer to answer any questions.
What does each business include?
Each of our online businesses are live, ready-to-run sites which include the following:
Domain name hosted by Godaddy
Website hosted by Squarespace
Product or service page
Blog page with at least three keyword-researched evergreen posts
Popup box with email opt-in and content upgrade
Email series set up through Squarespace (for revenue-generating businesses)
One social media channel (for revenue-generating businesses)
Can more than one person buy a business idea?
No, these are live businessess that are unique and only available for sale to one entrepreneur.
Do you only host websites on Squarespace?
Yes, part of our strategy is to build all of our online businesses on Squarespace because of their stunning templates, ease of use and all-in-one offerings that include everything you need without having to worry about installing external widgets.
As part of the transfer process we will send you documentation on how to familiarize yourself with Squarespace or transfer the website to another host, if you prefer.
What is your return policy?
Once you buy a business it is non-refundable. However, you can view each live website above to see exactly how it works and send an inquiry to provide any additional information you need to make an informed decision prior to purchase.
What is your copyright or trademark policy?
When you purchase an online business the property rights are turned over to you to claim as your own and do with as you please.
Any design elements, images or copywriting used are either designed by us (for your use) or from a free-for-use or non-copyrighted source.
Please note that we purposely do not conduct trademark or incorporation research as we serve clients all over the world and each country, state and municipality has different regulations that govern branding and business incorporation.
Therefore, it is your responsibility to research and reserve rights to the brand name and incorporate the busienss in your country and/or municipality.
A brand I want is sold out!
Our studio builds custom designed business concepts and websites. We can create a site for you that is similar (but non-competitive) to one of our sold out conepts. Contact us for more information.
Can you design a custom website for me?
We sure can. Contact us for more information on having a tailor-made concept designed exclusively for you.
