Even with the success and growth of the business, there is still ample opportunity for future growth. The market for guitar parts is large and diverse ranging from students and hobbyists to aspiring artists to professionals. Many players own multiple instruments. The business continues to grow and is ready to be scaled to the next level in part by expanding to a commercial/industrial space in order to facilitate continued expansion with a better configured workspace, additional worker(s) and more product. Some other strategies for future growth include selling on social media, improve SEO, develop email and targeted advertising campaigns and expand FBA offerings from existing inventory.
This business’ competitive advantage lies in its longevity and reputation for quality of products and service, as well as fair prices.
