Sample Ads … Businesses for Sale Ads and Businesses Wanted Ads

For our Business Sellers, we offer the 3 types of Business-for-Sale Ads you see illustrated below.

  • To open any of the ads illustrated below; to make it legible, simply click on it.
  • To see how these and other Ads are created, click the Sample Ad Dashboard button, then click Edit or Review on any of the ads you may wish to explore in the Sample Ad Dashboard. You can edit them as you might, just to see the changes you might make, and they will return to their current state later.
  • Valu4Sale The Valu4Sale presentation is not so quick and easy. Valu4Sale offers facility to set out sales and earnings history over the last 5 years (or less), or last 4 years plus year-to-date, as well as balance sheet, and to present a very simplistic, but reasoned sale price valuation based on balance sheet value plus goodwill value based on a multiple of average annual earnings, and it provides the potential to tell a great deal about the business without identifying the business in any manner. Valu4Sale takes longer to gather the information and create the Ad, but does provide the material information serious buyers will be attracted to. Valu4Sale is designed to generate a great deal of serious and quantified buyer in the business, in advance of any buyer/seller exposure or contact.
  • HELP LINKS: For each Ad type there is a HELP Topic file. To preview any of the three, click the link below. Later when you are preparing your ad presentation, you will find a HELP menu located in the Green Menu Bar that will link to an explanation for every step and each entry field.

  • CONFIDENTIALITY and NON-DISCLOSURE: 20 years brokering the sale of businesses has taught me "if you have a good business and if you can demonstrate it to be so, then do so definitively," but take care to do so in a manner that does not prematurely identify the company to readers. Withhold information that would name or identify the business or name the owner/seller, or locate it or describe it so specifically that someone would recognize it as being your business.

For our Business Buyers, Business-Trader.com is introducing a NEW Business Wanted Ad format, as illustrated below.

  • To open any of the ads illustrated below; to make it legible, simply click on it.
  • To see how these and other Ads are created, click the Sample Ad Dashboard button, then click Edit or Review on any of the ads you may wish to explore in the Sample Ad Dashboard. You can edit them as you might, just to see the changes you might make, and they will return to their current state later.

As you can see in the above, Business-Trader.com is asking business owner/sellers to incorporate a substantial amount of material and confidential information into their Ads. We are asking buyers to do the same; to help each other see the fit and opportunity in what each has to offer the other.

  • HELP LINKS: To preview the BizWanted HELP Topics, click the following link.

    Then later, as you are preparing your wanted ad presentation, you will find these same HELP Topics by clicking the HELP menu located in the Menu Bar.
  • CONFIDENTIALITY and NON-DISCLOSURE: Anonymity in this process is often less important to a Buyer than to a Seller. However, it will be important to most Buyers who will incorporate a Net Worth Statement into ad. In other cases, if a Buyer is a popular and known business buyer, it may be advantageous to withhold buyer’s financial information in order to disclose the Buyer by name. But otherwise, if confidentiality is important to you as buyer, take care to create an ad that is non-identifying. If you review the three above, you will see that samples W00048 and W00047 above have been created so as to withhold identity. And notice, W00049 has not.
