Consult with a Professional Business Broker when Selling an Ecommerce Business

Posted by Ryan Bennett in Articles


There is a lot that goes into operating an ecommerce business. From inception to creating a name, securing the domain, the legalities, marketing, stocking inventory, managing compliance, hiring employees, and everything else – you want to do things the right way from the very start. So what happens when the time comes for you to think about selling your ecommerce business? The same forethought that you applied at the beginning and the middle, you must administer at the end, as well.

If you don’t know how to sell a company, and let’s face it, who does other than a professional business broker, then your first best step toward a profitable end is to consult with the very best business broker that you can locate. And, since there are dozens, if not hundreds of them available online, choosing the best among all of those just makes the process even more difficult.

A savvy business broker should have a multitude of services available to their clients. These services should include helping to reduce expenses so the deal is maximized, marketing the business with absolute discretion, putting all of the deal players into place, evaluating the business thoroughly, developing an exit strategy, arranging third party lenders, qualifying and vetting buyers, deal consulting, turnaround consulting if necessary, and many other services that you can only get from an experienced business broker with a solid reputation.

Besides great services to their clients, what else should you look for when it comes to finding a business broker to help in selling your ecommerce business?

  • Years in the industry. How many years experience does the business broker have in the industry? Is it two, three, four… or decades? The more years of experience, the more qualified the business broker will be to handle your transaction.
  • Exceptional customer service. Has the business broker proven that they put the customer first by never taking a commission until their client’s site has sold? This type of firm is called a boutique brokerage firm, and is one of the methods successful business brokers use to earn customer respect.
  • Free consultation and website valuation. They say nothing is free but a great business broker will give their clients a free consultation and website valuation to help them begin their process.
