There are several reasons why business owners would want to sell their business, whether this is a brick and mortar store or online business venture. You could want to sell it for a fortune because you have an incredible business that someone else would want. You may want to sell to get out from under the venture and know someone could do better. You may also want to sell because the business isn’t doing well. Whatever the reason is, there may be a better way to selling your business faster – selling it online.

1. Set Up a Website
You may already have a website for your business, but for the purpose of selling you will likely want another one completely. You can also make a This new website will be entirely focused on selling the business you already have. The great thing is that it doesn’t even need to be that extensive. Even a one page sales website informing the potential buyer of particular business details is enough. I would recommend adding a short snapshot of the overall business, an intent to sell the business in another section on the page, and an email box/phone number to send information to the person about buying the business or so that you can call them to make your sales pitch. This becomes a very powerful landing page that can really weed out the lookie loos from the real interested business buyers.

2. Market the Website
With your new one-page website, the next thing you will want to do is run some advertising campaigns on it. This can be done through Facebook and Google PPC, and I recommend both for faster turnaround. With both, you can target people who are looking to buy a business based on their previous searches, keywords they use, or other data these two companies use to assess user-engagement. You can drive a lot of traffic to your website pretty quickly and hopefully garner a good amount of leads. All you need to do from there is establish contact with the leads and try to sell your business to them like a madman.
3. The Long-Term Approach
If selling businesses becomes a fun business for you, there may be a long term strategy waiting for you. A lot of business people enjoy taking other businesses and flipping them in a similar process I mentioned in the two previous steps. What this means is that you too can enjoy the prospect of business flipping as a potential income stream. Simply acquire a business, or look for others who are trying to sell their, make a website, and sell to potential buyers. If it is your own business, you can get all the proceeds, but if you are selling someone else’s, you can charge a commission fee. This type of Affiliate Marketing can be learned if you click here.
