We appreciate the opportunity to serve you, and in 2013 we worked hard to make it even easier for brokers to sell businesses and take advantage of upward trends in the market. Here are a few ways we helped members capitalize and drive more conversions on BizBuySell:
Increased Broker Presence
- On the Homepage: “Find a Broker” is now one of the three prominent search categories, bringing awareness to the Broker Directory while helping buyers and sellers find broker members. In addition, we now have a rotating Featured Broker placement directly on the home page.
- In the Search Results: Featured Broker placements now appear next to the BizBuySell Search Results when a state-level search is performed, increasing the exposure of local business brokers to buyers and sellers.
- Additional Site Placements: Brokers and the Directory are now more visible throughout the site during the listing process and in the community to help match buyers and sellers with your services.
Earlier in 2013, BrokerWorks underwent a redesign, aimed to make it easier for you to access your favorite tools – saving you valuable time when managing your listings, leads and more. The new left hand navigation helps you seamlessly transition between tools and key listing management pages, while the news feed and summary page helps you stay informed of leads, account activity, and more.
Free Agent Plans Introduced
This free BrokerWorks feature increases the reach of your office by allowing you to invite your agents to create free Broker Directory profiles and Agent accounts. This tool is helping agents independently manage the marketing and leads of listings assigned to them. Try it today by visiting the Agents tab on the left-hand navigation in your BrokerWorks account.
Listing Marketing Emails Improved
We redesigned our BuyerBlast and BizAlert emails to entice more subscribers to click-through and view your listings on BizBuySell.
Listings Automatically Published
We know that the large majority of listings submitted by brokers meet all required BizBuySell criteria. Now, to help you get in front of buyers quicker, your listings will automatically be published as soon as they’re submitted, and will be reviewed within 24 hours.
Showcase Listing Plus Enhanced
We rolled out major updates to Showcase Listing Plus, allowing you to more effectively highlight your portfolio of businesses and attract buyers. Add up to 6 photos, 3 attachments, a video, and more detailed descriptions.
There has never been a better time to be a BizBuySell Broker Member. We strive to continue to improve your experience in 2014 and beyond.
