What is the industry standard business brokerage Fee?
The industry standard fee for smaller (less than $1,000,000) transactions is usually 10% with a minimum fee that can range from $10,000 up to $25,000. When a transaction exceeds $1,000,000, then the "success" fee is negotiable. It usually reduces by about 2% per million dollars, to a floor of 4% or 5% on each million that exceeds $10 million. This is negotiable.
What do you charge for business development and image enhancement?
Conceptually our prices are designed similar to business acquisitions. When you buy a company you pay a multiple of projected future expected profits over a defined number of years. We use the same methodology when winning work. A value for new work exists to your company. Jointly we will identify that value and establish parameters and come to a payment structure. This payment structure can be based on a defined objective performance criteria or on a simple fee basis for an identified scope of work.
We can provide other business operations or consulting services like web design, accounting or financial analysis. We will perform these services mostly as a benefit to existing clients.
