It is almost the end of what has felt like the longest year in ever for most people. Business owners, like yourself, in Boston and around the world, have had to make major adjustments, learn on their feet, and be exceptional in a crisis they could have never imagined, just to stay afloat. You may find that after everything you have been through this year, it is time to sell your business. Whether it’s a new business opportunity or comfortable retirement that awaits you at the other end of that sale, experienced brokers know how to package and market your business in the Boston area.
Today, a competitive business is more than one with high profit margins. In fact, buyers are looking for a lot more. What does that mean exactly? A whole “package” business includes elements such as the following.
- What makes your business unique/different from the competition?
- What services/products do you offer that others do not?
- Positive reviews and feedback
- Five-star ratings are the result of five-star customer service. Managing and promoting your good reviews will pay dividends
- Dedicated and recurrent customer base
- Are your customers constantly coming back for more? Will they keep doing so even after management changes?
- Crisis management plan
- In light of COVID-19, a buyer will want to know you have a crisis survival plan in place that is both easy to execute and proven to work.
- Creative marketing strategies
- Do you have seasonal products or sales? Strong social media presence? Email newsletter lists? These features add incredible value to your business.
