Sell Your Business Quietly and Confidentially
Pitch-to-Brokers tool: how it works for business owners
ExitAdviser's Pitch-to-Brokers Tool lets you keep the selling process out of the public eye and set your own terms for the sale. And, instead of talking to just one broker or agent, you will be quietly spreading your offer to tens of professional intermediaries nearby.
Business brokers, financial advisors, and lenders will receive your message in the form of a confidential, hardcopy letter delivered by USPS, which is, by the way, near-impossible to ignore.
In the letter, you'll summarize what the business does, and how much you're willing to pay for a successful sale. If they're interested, an intermediary like a broker or lender will contact you over the phone, or via email, to discuss the details.
You may consider it an old-fashioned, yet rock-solid method to lead the sales process - keep it out of the public eye, and get the best possible deal.
Set the location (i.e., city, state) where you want to address intermediaries like business brokers and advisors. Ideally, the mailing list will include placess within a 30-mile radius of the city.
