Q: Some websites say they will put my business on other websites. Why does Australian Business For Sale not offer this?
A: No need to. Australian Business For Sale is one of the top organically ranked sites on all search engines.
Companies who offer to list your business on multiple other websites should be researched carefully as, assuming they actually do list your business elsewhere, the sites will probably either be unranked, or clones of the original site.
Q: Some websites make big promises and I have become sceptical. How do I know that you are not over promising?
A: Our promise to you is guaranteed. Our Cashing Out Strategy, and Combo Packages, are the only Money Back Guaranteed marketing and advertising systems available in Australia to sell your business or franchise privately.
Q: There are lots of websites, what do you offer that is different?
A: You will reach more buyers via extra pipelines to business buyers because your business for sale is marketed online and offline through printed Business Directories distributed Australia wide, and exposure in Franchise & Business Opportunities Expo's - direct marketing to buyers. (These exposure packages are only available from Australian Business For Sale.)

A: Australian Business For Sale is a trusted brand with 27 years of experience. Thousands of owners have sold their businesses, from the smallest home based business to multi-million dollar businesses, via our services.
Q: I am a bit of an old school business person and like to speak with people, is that possible with your company?
A: You can call us during business hours, and speak to a REAL person. You can make an appointment to come to our Sydney office, or talk to one of our business advisors about how to sell your business.

Because we live and work in Australia, we understand the various social, political, and economic factors affecting business owners, and as small business owners ourselves we deal with all aspects of selling a business here in Australia.
