It is not as easy as most people assume to sell Internet business. This is a business like any other and you need the right professional support to sell fast and for the right price. At So-Cal Business Brokers we have sold many Internet businesses before. We know what buyers are looking for and what needs to be done to sell fast and for the right price. To help you sell we always take the time to educate you on the things you need to avoid. Here we will be looking at the mistakes that can keep your Internet business from selling.
Bad reason for selling
The first thing buyers consider when searching for a business to buy is the business owner’s reason for selling. Not every reason is valid. Buyers don’t want to buy a business that is failing. They want to invest in a business that will grow and help them make a profit. The first thing we do when you come to So-Cal Business Brokers is consider your reason for selling. We first make sure that you are serious about selling and you are selling for the right reason. Our business broker can help you come up with a more valid reason when you are getting ready to sell Internet business.
Not qualifying buyers
One thing most business sellers forget about is the fact that not every buyer that comes knocking really wants to buy your business. Most buyers are simply window shoppers and seldom follow through with the purchase. Our job as your representative is to prescreen every buyer to make sure he has the financial means to buy your Internet business and that his interests align with yours. Prescreening buyers helps avoid wasting time with the wrong people and guarantees that you sell fast.
Buyers will always perform a business valuation to determine if the set price is fair. If the price is too high or too low it will raise red flags. While it is easy to assume that your Internet business is invaluable, if you want to sell it you must set a realistic selling price. Our business brokers will manage your expectations and help set a realistic selling price. Our pricing is based on a business valuation report and a range of factors including the market climate.

Other things that will keep you from ever selling is being dishonest about your business situation, failing to maintain confidentiality, failing to leverage on the expertise of independent advisors and only settling for cash-only.
