How to Sell to a Business

 

Selling an Electric Motor Dealers Business

Despite the pessimistic mood of many sellers, your electric motor dealers business can be a high value acquisition target for ambitious entrepreneurs -- even in today's tough economy.

Business-for-sale markets are less dependent on economic conditions than most sellers think they are.

Too often electric motor dealers business owners cave under the pressure and settle for a lower sales price than they should. With the right strategy, your sale doesn't have to end that way.

Selling Time

It's rarely possible to sell an electric motor dealers business in a month or two. Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules about the length of time your business will be on the market. Pricing plays a role in sale length, but there are no guarantees that a fairly priced business will sell quickly. On average, it takes a minimum of six months to prepare an electric motor dealers business for sale and many sellers spend a year or more positioning their business to command a higher price. Even though it's conceivable that an attractive opportunity could sell in weeks, an immediate flood of offers could indicate that the business is underpriced.

Why Confidentiality Matters

Highly publicized electric motor dealers business sales are risky electric motor dealers businesssales. 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. We recommend consulting a business broker to learn how you can simultaneously identify prospective buyers and maintain a confidential sale environment.

Leveraging Industry Connections

Today's electric motor dealers business buyers can be found in a variety of locations. Online business-for-sale databases have value, although they appeal to an exceptionally wide base of prospects. For more targeted lead generation, consider tapping into your network of industry contacts. When leveraging industry relationships for sales prospects, you'll need to be cognizant of the potential for competitors to use knowledge of your sale against you in the marketplace. Use good sense in restricting the flow of information within the industry and focusing your efforts toward trusted industry allies.
