How the Emerald Coast Team Works to Sell Your Business

While you may be successful in your area of business, the selling process is probably foreign to you. Let the experts at Emerald Coast show you an easy way to sell your business. We know how to market a business to potential buyers, we know what they’re looking for, and we know how to get it sold in a timely manner. We will have your business ready, and here’s how we intend to do it:

  1. Analyze your Business
    At our initial meeting we will ask questions and listen to learn about the unique aspects of your business. We will give you a checklist of the items we need for our team to analyze the business. Once you have gathered the information, the ECBI team will meet and apply the methods of the CBI team. We have been doing this since 1994 and we know what we are doing.
  2. Customized Plan
    Present a custom plan to help you sell your business in the shortest time for the best price. We will thoroughly explain each step of the process, why it is necessary, and the result you can expect.
  3. Handle the paperwork 
    The paperwork required for selling a business can be overwhelming. We will guide this process to ensure everything is completed in a timely, efficient manner.
  4. Customize a marketing plan to attract quality buyers
    We will conduct a comprehensive marketing campaign that includes, both extensive online advertising and off-line efforts. This involves defining your ideal buyer, determining the best way to reach them and producing targeted advertising that attracts qualified buyers quickly.
  5. Buyer Search and Qualification
    Conduct Buyer searches, buyer pre-qualification screenings and interviews. So that your time is spent dealing only with serious qualified buyers, we will screen each potential buyer to determine whether they have the skill set, desire, and funding needed to buy your business.
  6. Maintain confidentiality
    Employee, customer, supplier or vendor knowledge of a pending sale would have a negative impact on the day-to-day business operations and the value of the business. Emerald Coast Business Intermediaries provides a professional confidentiality agreement for your protection. We will maintain confidentiality throughout the entire process–before, during and after the sale.
  7. Negotiate with Potential Buyers
    In the process of negotiating the terms of the sale, we will serve as the buffer between you and the buyer–taking the pressure off of you. The ECBI Team will explain all terms of any offers, including the advantages and risks to you as the seller.
  8. Complete Coordination of all Stages of the Transaction
    Your intermediary will work with the entire ECBI Team, the buyer, the closing attorney and the lender to make sure all the details are done correctly and in a timely manner.
