The answer is YES for 63% of those we asked, based on this questions “Would you consider buying a percentage of a business now with an option to buy the rest when the situation resolves”?
(Q8 from the Xcllusive Business Buyers Report – April 2020)
We saw a little of this pre-COVID 19 but expect this method to increase in the future. It means the buyer and the seller will share the risk. This is very encouraging for the future.
Complimentary to this: What are the characteristics that will compel you to buy in this environment?
Low fixed overheads relative to sales level
Good forward plan
This is something business owners can do now to prepare their business for sale.
If you’re considering selling, have a really good look at your overheads – there’s never been a better time to renegotiate and reduce your overheads. Create a short but solid forward plan using bullet points to show the direction of your business..

What a pleasure it was to be able to take a momentary breath and give some strategic thought to practical business fundamentals required now. Thank you TeamInspiring Rare Birds. Onwards and Outwards…
In the spirit of knowledge sharing during this challenging time for business, we want to note some key takeaways from today’s deep dive mentoring session with Business Value Analyst, Exit Facilitator and Broker of Sales Denise Hall.
👉Assess avenues for collaboration. Which companies can you partner with to deliver value to your customers and amplify your reach and impact?
👉Understand your greatest asset. Where is the $$$ coming from and how can you maximise that product or service?
👉Reflect on your value proposition. What do your clients pay for and how has this now changed? How can you pivot within your scope of value to adjust to their current needs?
At times like these it’s more important than ever to have someone with a high level of business experience and expertise in your corner. That is exactly what our Rare Birds Mentors are here for and they are waiting to make a difference for you: https://lnkd.in/gwwskjx
Online Businesses are booming. It makes sense then that we are seeing an increase in the number of online businesses for sale, some well-established and some start-ups. A relatively new area, how does the sales process differ from a bricks-and-mortar business?
The fundamentals still apply; it’s only the business model that is different.

For you, this will be complimentary with my pleasure…
It might just be, and here’s why… January is often when prospective business buyers have the time to sit down and do a bit of forward planning and subsequent investigating. So, if your business is not on our website xcllusive.com.au, or one of the other business-for-sale type sites, then it cannot be found. Meaning now is the time to do the pre-work to get the business on the market by end of 2018, in readiness for business shoppers at the start of 2019.
If you’re unsure when to pull the trigger, there are typically 3 considerations when thinking about selling your business:
Financial (money driven)
Freedom (personal driven)
Legacy (business driven)
Whilst Financial is often the one that is led with (because it is the most tangible place to start), it is not the only reason to sell. Freedom and Legacy play equally important roles in determining when to go to market and even who to sell your business to.
