Online Brokerage and Marketplace Reviews

posted in: Broker Reviews, General | 1

So, after a lot of research and perhaps some soul searching, you’ve decided to buy an online business. The first thing you need is deal flow and you have a few options to go about this: You can either use a broker or marketplace that specializes in online businesses or simply source the deals privately yourself. While there are pros and cons to both, most buyers tend to go in the broker direction — at least for their first few deals — as it allows you to assess more deals and provides better stucture and support.

Naturally, the question arises, which broker should you choose? Well, there are a ton of options and the right one for you typically depends on the type of online businesses you’re after, your budget, preferred communication styles, and so much more. As a way to help you make the right decision, we’ve decided to interview as many online brokerages as possible to help you make the right decision as part of our Online Brokerage and Marketplace Review series.
