On the eve of turkey day and a well deserved long weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to give thanks for the business I find myself engaged in currently. As a website business broker I spend my days conversing with website owners wanting to sell their internet businesses and budding internet entrepreneurs looking for the next deal. I get to interact with a very interesting cross section of people and generally have very stimulating conversations.
I am thankful for the opportunity I am presented with daily to offer advice and help people achieve both financial success and financial freedom from both sides. Many new buyers looking to start out on their own, away from corporate America after 20 years, get the thrill of finally owning and building their own business that they can operate from their home in their pajamas instead of commuting to a skyscraper in their suit and tie!
I get to assist sellers who have worked hard developing and building great fundamentally solid website businesses that are attractive to many buyers. I get to celebrate their joy and new found freedom after a deal is closed and often maintain long term relationships with these clients often participating in their future business deals.
I am thankful for working with a dedicated, intelligent and fun staff and partners who know the value of team work, customer service, loyalty and excellence! They make it easy to enjoy my company, manage its growth and celebrate its successes too!
To know that the deals we broker are fair and balanced and are a win win win for all parties, including websiteproperties.com, is a great feeling. I truely am blessed doing what I love and helping people achieve their dreams and goals and building great relationships along the way.
So, I will enjoy my time off over this festive holiday, but undoubtly I will find time to creep back online to read and answer some emails because when you do what you love, it is not work.
Happy and safe Thanksgiving to all my readers, clients and prospective buyers who visit an read my blog.
The historic day has arrived after 20 months of an intense political race, economic uncertainty and global recession. How does the effect of the election and the apparent recession affect your internet business or the opportunity of buying a website business now?
I am personally looking forward to completion of the process and hope that ultimately the division in this country is reigned in and we can start unifying to take on the enormous challenges of this new century. I think that in itself will allow people to refocus on their opportunities and challenges in their personal and business life without the distraction of the political pundits and abrasive political campaign ads.
The internet has been more of a harbor in the tempest of this economic meltdown – many prospective buyers are looking at investing in solid cash flow internet opportunities because there is a greater sense of control of the potential returns that in the volatile real estate and stock markets. In addition, internet businesses tend to have more resilience to economic downturns because the more affluent and educated consumers are shopping online, researching online and saving money online instead of spending more time and money driving to make purchases for certain products. Website businesses also have a broader market to sell to – with a national or international customer base verses a more local or regional market like most brick and mortar businesses.
In economic downturns there are always niches that thrive and opportunities that become much better deals than they were when the market was up. This means it is a buyers market with more attractive opportunities to consider and at less inflated multiples than a year ago. Looking for an established website business for sale that has a long history of growth, profitability and stability will be a wise investment in a downturn providing the niche is resilient to consumer spending – such as necessity items verses luxury products.
There are lots of excellent opportunities to cherry pick now that will be worth a lot more when we rebound from this morass of poor leadership and uncertainty into a new era of global respect, a healing in this country and new opportunities arising from the enviromental, economic and health challenges we face currently.
