San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) March 8, 2006
70% of all business owners who try to sell a business fail and 80% of people who attempt to buy a similar business are not able to do so. This phenomenon is well known by veteran entrepreneurs but for those just starting out, help is on the way. USABizMart.com, a popular online business website, has launched the Business For Sale Online Academy to teach both potential and veteran business owners how to sell their small business and business buyers the latest techniques for searching and buying a business.
"As I can attest, buying or selling a small business is a monumental task" Said Peter Siegel, President and Founder of USABizMart.com. "No matter how small the business one wishes to buy or sell, the sheer amount of paperwork, legal mazes and loopholes, and the amount of people you will need help from on this is just astounding. We want to help business owners of small businesses and potential business buyers with this" he went on to say.
The academy is based online and holds 4-5 free online seminars every month on topics ranging from Buying and Selling a business to strategies on getting an SBA loan to purchase a business. These are all lead by Peter Siegel who holds an MBA and has written three books on business buying and selling strategies. The online seminars, or webinars, draw on his experience in the business world and on a large number of case studies of successful small business transactions.
At the heart of this program is the TIIC Method, which was developed by Mr. Siegel. This is a comprehensive method for buying or selling a small or mid-sized business that stresses preparation, setting realistic expectations, using intensive advertising and marketing exposure to the right audience, and systematic follow-up and closure techniques. This method has been shown to help business owners get the best deal while being able to close their deal within 60-90 days, compared to the 6-18 months it normally takes.
The online seminars are presented free to the public, and take no more than 1 hour. This is done so that even the busiest current or future business owner can attend and get the knowledge that they need to buy or sell a small business successfully and in record time.
"Even the life-long entrepreneur who has been able to conquer almost any challenge may find himself at a loss at what to do to get the best price when he decides to buy a new business or sell his current one, especially if he has only owned one company" stated Mr. Siegel. He went on to say "with the information that one will learn at this online seminar, they will be able to navigate the maze that is buying and selling a small business without getting lost in the process or losing money."
