Read newspapers and check online what other business owners are demanding for the similar business, this will help you get a clear idea about your business’s worth.
You should also approach a relevant real estate agent as he would be able to tell you the exact worth of your business. Do not rely on just one agent; try to visit a couple of brokers.
Identify your target market and approach them in a suitable and effective manner. You should be sure whether you want the sale to be public or you want to keep it a secret, as you might lose some of your customers if the sale is public.
Consulting a broker is not the only option, you can take benefit of the services of an appraiser but it would be relevantly costly.
Prepare a marketing plan for the sale of your business and be careful while choosing the marketing tools. You should prefer the medium that gives you most clientele.
You can also advertise about selling your business in the local newspapers and business magazines.
Do not forget to seek help from business trade organisations as this is one of the most effective ways.
