Hi, this is Jonathan Jay from The Dealmakers’ Academy.
Welcome to these videos on buying and selling businesses.
Now today’s top tip is all about finding deals.
And one of the very best places to find deals is actually on social media, like Facebook and LinkedIn.
Now, you may not be a social media person, I’m certainly not, but I know that if I see an opportunity like Facebook and LinkedIn as a way of finding deals, then I’ll get used to the idea of having a Facebook page and a LinkedIn page.
You don’t have to do anything else on the page except use it to find deals.
You see, all the businesses are out there using Facebook and LinkedIn, so you should be too.
And quite often, it just takes one or two posts to get people coming to you saying I’d like to talk to you about selling my business.
And I have clients who don’t believe it until they try it, and they do it once, they put one post on LinkedIn, one post on Facebook, and as a result, they get emails and contacts from people who say, yes, I’d love to talk to you about you buying my business.
So, even if you’re not a social media person, why don’t you try that out as a great way of finding deals?
