RW - Colorado
When we employed sellerconfidential we thought the materials would help us close a deal with the companies we had been talking to for years about either a merger or acquisition of our company. This was a deal approaching $400,000. The prospectus that sellerconfidential prepared was creative, complete and attractive. The surprise came when one of the respondents to the online ads came to us “out of the blue” and is buying the company at this moment. All promises were kept. sellerconfidential did not promise that we would make a deal, just made it possible through preparation, great printed materials, coaching along the way and well positioned marketing. Oh, and we saved $34,000 in commissions since this was a For Sale by Owner Deal! Nice.
TR - “Well Known Branded Fitness Equipment Manufacturer”
|Iconic Brand Fitness Equipment Manufacturer Ready for Acquisition||SOLD|
|ID Code:||equipment||Annual Net:||TBD|
|Start Up?||No||Asking Price:||$375,000|
|This is a very recognizable Branded Fitness Equipment Manufacturer with solid international sales and registered Trade Marks. Half the world isn’t being sold yet. This 22 year old company has never made a lower tier product to sell to mass merchants. This brand is very well known, well protected and ready for a new solid focused management. This price might be less than the value of the Trade Mark. There is a strong established US, EU, Russia, Aussie and Ukrainian sales record, but no South American and little Asian sales efforts. That’s right – Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Ecuador are untouched territory as well as most of Asia. Mass merchants would make hay with a stepped down product and the Brand Reference could make it happen – another untapped sales possibility. An acquiring company with established sales and production management operations might realistically expect a 1 year ROI.|

The Seller Confidential "BIZBO" Marketing Platform
Q: Can I really sell my business myself?
Statistically, the vast majority of businesses are sold by owners with no brokers involved. You know your business better than anyone. We give you all the tools you need to present your business to the highest number of qualified buyers.
We offer Professional Coaching, Education and Guidance.
Q: Most business brokers make a commission when the business sells but you charge a flat fee. Why?
We are not brokers. Brokers charge high fees and tie up your business via exclusive listing contracts for months and, sometimes, years. Our fees are a fraction of what business brokers charge. For example, if you pay a broker a 10% commission on a $200,000 selling price, that is $20,000 less in your pocket. And, in most cases, we offer a more extensive marketing approach.
Q: I can list my business online for less than you charge? What is the difference?
An actual comparison of advertising costs showing all of the national and international websites we use, our extensive buyer databases and the time we maintain your presence shows a terrific value. Of course, listing is only part of the equation. We know what to say about your business to draw the most attention. We also know how the game works to get you pre-screened, qualified buyers and are available to support you through the entire sales process. And with our Platinum Plus BIZBO program, we even offer you a performance money back guarantee -- call or text 303-265-1615 for details
Q: Will everyone know my business is for sale?
NO. Only if you list it yourself or you tell someone. We maintain the strictest confidence and know how to list a business without disclosing the exact name and location.
Q: Will people be calling me all the time in front of employees and customers?
No. Our Client Service Center handles all inquiries including electronic, fax and phone. We then forward the inquiries to you. You contact them at your convenience and set your own appointments. They never know your name, number or location until you contact them.
Q: What do I do when a buyer is interested?
Easy! Call us for professional coaching, education and guidance. We are here to help YOU. Our years of experience make it simple to coach you through the process.
Q: How do I price my business?
We provide a free opinion of value based upon our experience, recasting your financials and previous sales nationally of similar businesses.
Q: What if my business does not sell right away?
Our generous listing period is typically more than adequate. However, you may easily extend the agreement if needed.
Q: What if another broker brings a buyer?
No problem. you still have access to our service. Nothing changes. We will coach you through the process.
Q: Do I need an attorney to sell my business?
We encourage the use of professionals for these transactions. In most markets we can offer names of accountants and attorneys specializing in small business transactions. However, the final choice is yours.
Q: What if my buyer needs financing?
We have names of many potential financers of business transactions. We simply put you in contact with them.

We can't possibly list all of our requests- CALL or TEXT 303-265-1615 - and we'll share some of our other active buyers
Reason #1 – Our Business Buyer Qualification System gives you all the necessary information you need about each prospect up front. No more wasting time with people who can’t or won’t ever buy a business. From now on, when you invest time with a potential buyer you will know he or she is qualified to buy.
Reason #2 – Confidentiality: Your confidentiality is absolutely guaranteed. Each buyer has agreed to the terms of our Confidentiality Agreement.
Reason #3 – For Sale By Owner Specialists: Seller Confidential specializes in Business By Owner Marketing and Advertising.
Reason #4 – Low Cost, Flat Fee: As low as $2500. That's Right. You pay just one low-priced flat fee and you never pay us a commission.
Reason #5 - Your Business qualifies to list with us (with rare exception): Unlike commissioned based seller representation where brokers choose which business's they list or don't list based on many factors such as requiring that your business have a minimum valuation and listing price, plenty of documented profits, be stable or growing sales and 3+ years in operation.... we will create powerful sales and advertising materials for your small business listing whether its asking price is sub 100K, it's a struggling business, has weak financials, is a relatively new business, or is an otherwise complicated deal.
Reason #6- We will coach you and provide guidance: throughout the entire sales process. You will never feel alone, unsupported or not know what to do next during your sale.
FIRST – Your company is profiled on the BIG "Business For Sale" Online Marketplaces with teaser copy to grab attention and interest plus a description of your business type, size, general location, revenues and price/terms you are requesting – just enough information to get a buyer interested and wanting to know more. To protect your confidentiality, your name and phone number are never revealed to buyers.
NEXT – When a buyer is interested in your business, they'll request information and to be Contacted by you. But first they must register with us by completing a Business Buyer Profile. They must tell us about their preferred type of business, business and/or work experience, credit history, available cash, how soon they intend to buy and more. Although it is not required, many buyers will also include their resume and/or a link to their LinkedIn.com profile.
THEN – Each buyer must also agree to the terms of our Confidentiality Agreement before we pass their contact info on to you. This way they have committed to keeping your personal information and everything they learn about your business a secret.
FINALLY – When filled out completely, the Buyer’s Profile will be immediately e-mailed to you. If, after reviewing their profile, you feel that the prospect lacks the experience or financial strength to buy your business, you are under no obligation to contact them. We never provide the buyer with any information about you aside from what is publicly posted in our approved by you advertising.
When you want to sell your business, you have 3 options:
Option #1: You can have a business broker do most of the work finding prospects for you to negotiate with. This will cost you 10-12% of the value of your business in broker’s commissions. (People who prefer this option probably gave up reading a long time ago!)
Option #2: You can advertise on a web site that exists for the benefit of business brokers. You will have to compete with thousands of ads and you will have to screen the buyers yourself without any help or guidance from industry professionals.
Option #3: You can market your business with Seller Confidential. A business marketing firm that exists to serve you: the small business owner who has made the decision to sell your business yourself. We will do all the work locating & qualifying buyers for you. And the best part is that it costs as low as $2500 to get your business offered for sale and sold. And you never pay a commission when you sell your business.
So the bottom line is: for as low as $2500 Seller Confidential will:
1. Give your company massive exposure to business buyers
2. Maintain your confidentiality
3. Pre-qualify each buyer for you according to your demands and…..
4. Introduce you to the real buyers
