Find an Experienced M&A Broker Who Can Profitably Sell Your Business Online

Posted by Chris Kern in Articles

With any luck, your website business will be profitable when you sell it. But how can you be sure about it’s worth? You can use online calculators that clumsily provide you with a weak valuation, but even if you could trust that number, where would you go from there? There is no guidance that accompanies an online calculator, and there is certainly no strategy.

When it comes time to sell your business online, find a business broker that has the experience and wisdom in the industry to know how to sell it profitably. A smart M&A broker will consider many elements surrounding your website – the status of the marketplace in general, seasonality of your website, trends, multiples, and more. An online calculator simply can’t juggle all of these elements and won’t be able to provide you with an accurate website valuation.

What type of things should you look for when considering a business broker to sell your online business?

  • Longevity in the industry. Without experience, there is no wisdom. Simply put, the two of them go hand in hand and this is especially true for M&A broker firms.
  • Customer testimonials. What’s true of the past is likely to be true of the future. If the business broker can provide you with a list of glowing client testimonials, you are bound to become one of their future satisfied clients.
  • Customer service. Technology and the 21st century have brought along with it a rapid decrease in the level of customer service across the board. Does the business broker you want to hire boast superior customer service? How can you tell they can follow through? A great indication is if they offer a free 24 hour consultation and free website valuation.
  • Boutique M&A broker firm. This means that the business broker doesn’t take a dime until the client’s site has sold. This means there’s no obligation, and they will be working that much harder for you.
