When it comes time to sell your internet business, there are a few options available. You can sell the site yourself, or you can depend on experienced business brokers to do it for you. The pros for selling it yourself, of course, include that you maintain complete control and you won’t have to pay commission to the business brokers. However, the cons far outweigh these pros.
Selling your internet business yourself, especially if you’ve never attempted it before, can be a tumultuous and risky endeavor. There are so many factors involved; it’s likely you won’t even know where to begin. And, even if you perform online research and follow the steps, you still won’t have the groups of people available to you that you need for support to exit with full financial integrity.
You might not even know that there are people out there who seek do-it-yourself sellers to gain access to all of the company’s information, and then start their own as competition. There are also groups of people out there who don’t necessarily mean any ill intent, but rather, are “looky-loos” – that is, they like to consider the idea of buying an internet business, but rarely follow through and end up wasting everybody’s time.
Another good reason to hire experienced business brokers to sell your internet business is to help you maintain confidentiality about the sale. When you hire business brokers, they take over for you, which means you’re able to concentrate on running the business, and it also means that you don’t have to worry about fielding calls and emails regarding the sale of the business. This becomes especially important if a prospective buyer was to call or email the business and an employee gets wind of the possible sale. This can lead to a decrease in trust and confidence in the employees, which, in turn, leads to a decrease in productivity and ultimately lower business values.
