A North East entrepreneur has successfully launched a digital platform for business owners to sell their companies online and for corporate finance professionals and business transfer agents acting on their clients’ behalf.
“wesellanycompany.com” is the brainchild of Barry Gill, a qualified accountant with an impressive track-record of working both in-house and as a consultant in the corporate finance sector.
Unlike other business selling sites which rely on potential buyers visiting the online platform to view businesses for sale and therefore limiting the potential reach of listings placed on these sites, a third of the fee paid to wesellanycompany.com goes towards targeted social media adverts for each of the companies for sale.
Barry said: “We launched just before Christmas and already the service is proving to be a huge success. A number of companies have signed up to the platform and the feedback we’ve had has been that people are impressed by the fact that we support each listing on the site with targeted social media adverts across Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
“Users of the site fill in a simple online form and wait for potential buyers to get in touch. They aren’t bogged down with setting up and managing the social media adverts that’s what we do and it’s all part of our simple and straightforward service.”
Users of wesellanycompany.com can sign up to use the service for 30, 60 or 90 days with packages costing £150, £250 and £350 + VAT respectively. In addition, insolvency practitioners can register to use the site for accelerated sales, listing the business on the platform for two weeks for a fee of £100 + VAT.
Each registered user of the site will receive regular email updates with information about how their listing is performing online supported by social media advertising.
