Tom's Testimonials

After being in the Amazon game for around eight years with several brands, Daniel Thompson started a successful health supplements business. However, with time running thin as he was building a new software company, he realized it was time to sell. The business was running and growing triumphantly, and aggregators regularly made him offers. He, however, had no experience selling businesses and realized involving an expert would be to his benefit. “The process was smooth, and Tom’s guidance was invaluable. In retrospect, I’m very glad I had Tom involved because he got a much better deal.” Thompson suggests to others who are thinking of selling directly to avoid paying commission that seeking experienced professionals more than made up for their margin.

Mark Lobliner owned and operated The Ambrosia Collective, specializing in innovative and differentiated health supplements. He had never sold a business of this magnitude and approached Website Closers to broker the deal. Mark worked closely with his broker, Tom Howard, to find the ideal partner to grow the brand. He believes that together they found the right buyer and made the perfect deal for the buyer, seller, and brand. “If there is ever another company I would consider selling, Website Closers would be the first people I’d go to.

Jonathan Burlingham began his business in 2007 when eCommerce was gaining traction. He had experience in hearth and patio products and decided to take it online. It was still unchartered territory during those times, but the business quickly snowballed and continues to thrive. After fifteen years, Jonathan realized that a partner with additional resources could help take his company to the next level. Jonathan maintains that the buyer who ended up acquiring his company was the best partner he could have asked for. “Tom and Website Closers were with me every step of the way.” “The overall quality of candidates presented to us were some of the best that I imagine are out there,” says Jonathan.
