One of the most important aspects of selling a business is finding people who are willing to buy it. Marketing is the key. You want to advertise your business in places where the most likely buyers will notice it.
Many would-be business sellers make the mistake of listing their company on the wrong websites or in the wrong way.
How should you market your business for sale?
Keep It Confidential
If your employees or suppliers find out about your plans before they’re set in stone, your business could suffer consequences that will affect your chances of cinching a sale.
With all this in mind, you’ll want to avoid handing out fliers about your plans to sell. Discreet ads on qualified business-for-sale websites are usually a subtle yet effective way to advertise a business sale.
Go Where the Potential Customers Are
The next important element of effective marketing is identifying your target buyers. These are the people you believe are most interested in purchasing a company like yours. You don’t want to waste time and money marketing to crowds of folks who can’t afford to buy or benefit from buying your business.
Here’s a handy chart that can help you determine which individuals will be most interested in your company and how to find them.
