With global events such as the Fukushima nuclear event having stimulated thousands of people worldwide to seriously consider nuclear awareness and preparedness, there has been a huge increase in demand for radiation detectors. However, radiation detectors have been used for years in many industries around the world including: metal recycling, mining, medical, nuclear, research, customs/border patrol, food and education, as well as for personal use and hobbyists. This business is an e-commerce website that sells high quality hand-held radiation detectors. With 100% of products stocked as inventory, the business typically stocks about 40-50 devices. Its current inventory level is approx. $16,988. With the size of the products being hand held and thereby very small, inventory is easily stocked in a home based office. It is easily relocateable and can be operated from any location with internet access. The website is successfully operated by one owner working part-time about 13 hours per week handling daily operations. This is an outstanding business opportunity for any buyer looking to acquire a home based, profitable, efficiently run ecommerce business in a unique niche market!
Building upon its well established foundation, there is great potential to continue to expand this internet business. Strategies to continue business growth and profitability include providing a Chat Function on the website to interact with visitors, add an industry blog to grow the content base, and list products with Amazon, Sears and Buy.com marketplaces as additional sales channels and to increase visibility.
This business has an edge over competition by offering quality, German made products with a great reputation and through its recently re-designed website with great ranking for main industry keywords.
