Selling Your Ecommerce Business: Not a Time for DIY

Posted by Izach Porter in Articles


The internet is filled with DIY videos on how to successfully complete just about any project. Whether it’s fixing your washing machine, changing a light in your vehicle, tying a tie, or putting in hardwood floors, you can find what you need on the internet. Do-it-yourself, or DIY, definitely has its place in the world of weekend warriors and pulling purse strings. But when it comes to selling your ecommerce business, DIY is not recommended.


Most people wouldn’t even sell their own home by themselves, let alone a business. And online businesses and brick and mortar businesses are far different animals. Business brokers that specialize in selling online business know every aspect, every nuance of what goes into getting the highest profit, and bottom line, isn’t that what you want?

A professional business broker can offer you a number of services that you would, likely, never be able to do on your own, including:

  • Coming up with a truly accurate website valuation. There’s the number you’d like to place on the website business, and then there’s the number you should place on it. Only a professional business broker will tell you the difference and why.
  • Is your ecommerce business in need of some turnaround consulting? Could it benefit from some trimming here, or fattening of marketing strategies there? An experienced business broker can help you not only see this, but implement these ideas.
  • Coming up with a great exit strategy. Do you know how to truly attract attention and create greater appeal for your ecommerce business? An experienced business broker will, most definitely.
  • Maximizing the company value for future sale, and determining the best time to put the online business onto the marketplace.
  • Putting your online business in front of a valued and pre-qualified pool of interested buyers.
