Factoring In Economic Variables
When you sell a bail bond referral service, there are a number of variables you need to consider. A combination of economic conditions and market sentiment can complicate your sale. The truth is that perfect market conditions may never materialize. Rather than watching the economy, we recommend watching buyers and tailoring your business to meet their investment expectations.

Why Confidentiality Matters
Confidentiality determines risk in the business-for-sale marketplace. A low-key selling strategy is a low risk activity because you can control who does (and doesn't) know that your business is on the market. When and if your sale becomes public knowledge, competitors can use that information to weaken your position in the marketplace. Although it can be difficult, it's important to strike a balance between confidentiality and sale promotion. Brokers and consultants can mitigate the risk by implementing confidential sale techniques.
