The Problems of DIY Selling
Maybe you’ve been through the process of selling the equipment for a large scale business before, and maybe you haven’t. If you are a person who has faced this challenge, think back on how it went.
How did you go about selling the equipment, tools, or machinery? Did you use the internet? Or, did you set up a tag sale? Did you handle your own marketing for the event? Did you draw a large, valuable crowd of buyers? Did you get the best prices for your equipment? Was your effort successful? What would you change about the experience if you had to do it again?
If you are liquidating business assets for the first time, then you should ask yourself the tough questions about how you’re going to make the event a success before you begin.
There are a lot of things that can go wrong. You could waste a ton of money and effort on the wrong marketing channels. You may think that your best advertising methods are the newspaper and television, but your target clients may not use those. Or, you may be certain that the internet and social media are your solid bets, but your audience isn’t there either. How will you determine your best advertising opportunities?
You may not get the best return on the equipment your selling because you don’t know how to attract the highest paying customers. How will you know if you got the best prices possible? You might have a staggeringly low number of interested buyers, driving your sales downward. How can you determine if you attracted the largest number of highest value buyers?
If you aren’t a marketing professional and you’re being honest with yourself, then the answer to most all of these questions will likely be, “I don’t know.” You could potentially miss out on thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars during your sale if you’re not using the right marketing strategies. Your goal is to liquidate the assets in the shortest time with maximum return. You don’t want to look around at the end of your event and see half of it still sitting there.
Results With A Higher Standard
What if you were able to tap into a higher standard of results for the selling process? What if you had a team of experts that you could rely on to create the most effective marketing campaigns? What if you had a team who could clearly identify your most valuable buyers? What if that team was able to place your equipment on the exact marketing channels that your most valuable buyers tune into? What if you could adopt a proven, successful process built on the highest standards available? Most importantly, what if you didn’t have to worry about your sale failing?
