    Hi all, does anyone know or can they recommend a business broker experienced in selling websites?

    Obviously there is the likes of Flippa etc, but I am interested in chatting with a business broker in person.

    Thanks all.

    Hi Michael,

    I’m sure there’ll be some additional suggestions posted for you shortly, but in the meantime, it might be worth having a browse through the list of business brokers in the Flying Solo directory.

    Good luck,
    Jayne

    Hi Jayne, thanks for that. I have had a bit of a snoop through them. Lots are in the mould of FLIPPA etc and others appear to be more experienced in bricks and mortar cafes etc.

    Will still keep checking them out though.

    Cheers

    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    Good question – it will be hard to find a specialised website business broker.

    This is mainly because website businesses are valued at <$100,000 and a business broker would want to be taking about $15,000+ in commission plus additional marketing costs which doesn't work out very cost effective for the seller. Best way to establish a valuation for your website:
    1. Speak to your accountant, if your website is making money they will look at the owners profit for the past 3 years and come up with a financial valuation for the business.
    2. Speak with a few generalised business brokers. They will be able to give you some idea, but their knowledge is usually limited to bricks and mortar types businesses.
    3. See what other website businesses are selling for.
    4. How much would you like to receive from the sale.

    Utilising the top 4 methods you should be able to come up with a price for your website business. Next step is to advertise it for sale and get interested buyers to contact you.

    I manage a business for sale website http://www.bsale.com.au we have a number of website businesses and work from home businesses that are advertised by owners and brokers. We have seen a number of website businesses sell via our system. If you chose to sell privately (without a broker) please just let me know.

    Hope that helps! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Best of luck with selling your website!! [email protected]
