Synergy Business Brokers is pleased to announce that we are on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in the United States for 2022. And we are the Fastest Growing Business Brokerage on the list. We are grateful to our clients, M&A brokers, and support staff for making this happen. Inc. Magazine and Inc.com have chosen us for this prestigious list. Inc magazine is the premier magazine for successful private companies, and Inc.com gets over 17 Million views per month. We attribute our success in making this list to a number of things, including selectivity in taking only clients that meet our criteria, hiring and training exceptional people, and our digital marketing expertise. To get into detail about each of these further, read more below:
Working with the right buyers and sellers
Although Synergy Business Brokers is on the list of Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies, we didn’t get that way by being all things to all people. In fact, our selectivity has allowed us to grow faster than generalist business brokerage firms. We only sell profitable companies that have annual revenues of $700,000 to $70 Million in the following industries: manufacturing, construction, technology, healthcare, services, distribution, and transportation. This focus allows us to accumulate a pool of buyers that are focused on acquiring this type of company. Our buyers range from other large companies in these industries that grow through acquisitions, private equity groups, and wealthy entrepreneurs. In our 20 years in business, we have accumulated over 30,000 buyers for these industries and company size. We regularly update our buyers as we have new assignments. Having a large number of potential buyers allows us to be selective in working with only the most qualified buyers that we think the seller will be comfortable with in taking over their business and providing them with the best price and terms.
Our focus is on the high end of the business brokerage world and the lower middle market of Mergers & Acquisitions. We combine the best practices of M&A Firms and Business Brokerage firms without the upfront fees of M&A companies. Since we only get paid if we sell our client’s business, we regularly turn down many requests from potential clients unless we feel confident that we are the right M&A Broker to meet or exceed the seller’s expectations on the price for their business. In addition to being ranked as the fastest growing business broker in the US, we are also ranked as one of the top business brokers on many lists of the best business brokers in the United States.
Hiring & Training the Best Business Brokers
Synergy Business Brokers has one thing in common with other members of the Inc. 5,000 fastest growing companies in America. They all recognize that having the best people is one of the most important, if not THE most important, thing in the success of their company. We would rather not hire someone that might be successful than hire the wrong person. Like any company, we don’t have a 100% success rate. But the percentage of business brokers that start with our company and go onto a successful career with us is second to none. We only take on people that have excellent personal skills and the drive to succeed for their clients. They also have the knowledge and background to navigate a complex sales process that usually has problems that need to be solved in order to get a deal done.
Due to the success of our M&A brokers, they have received glowing reviews from their clients as well as referrals from buyers and sellers that do multiple business transactions with us. To supplement referrals and word of mouth, we have a digital marketing team behind our brokers.
Digital Marketing Expertise
Part of the reason that our brokers are so successful is that Synergy Business Brokers provides them with a constant flow of leads of buyers interested in buying the companies that they are representing. In many cases, we have over 100 different buyers interested in a single business for sale. So the business broker’s job is to find out which ones are the most likely to buy and are qualified to purchase at a favorable price for our client.
With 20 years of expertise in Digital Marketing, we stand out from other business brokers that don’t have the same visibility that we have. We come up on the first page of Google for hundreds of different keywords related to our businesses for sale as well as mergers and acquisitions and business brokerage in general. Synergy Business Brokers has been able to confidentially maximize the exposure of our client’s business to the right potential buyers using three different methods of digital marketing:
Search Engine Optimization: We have become the pre-eminent experts in the field of SEO for business brokerage, working with accomplished SEO firms to get our website on the first page of Google. We have spent thousands of hours on this, and the results speak for themselves. It is very difficult for new business brokerage firms to replicate this because the Google algorithm understands that our website has been around for many years and has a reputation for keeping users coming back more over time to view our latest businesses for sale.
Email Marketing: Synergy Business Brokers regularly updates our potential buyers with new opportunities to buy businesses that are profitable and have a great reputation in their industry. This has resulted in many of our buyers purchasing multiple businesses from us and works out well for everyone involved, as the buyer has experience buying from us and integrating new businesses into their existing business. But we don’t rest on our laurels. We are always seeking out new potential buyers through various advertising efforts.
Paid Advertising: We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on paid advertising, including Google, Bing, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, Bizbuysell, Businessesforsale.com, and more. This generates leads for both business buyers and sellers.
All of these channels work together with our referral base to increase the exposure of our clients’ businesses.
Confidentially Marketing Businesses
Keep in mind that although we are providing maximum exposure for our client’s business, we are not giving away the identity of their business until a qualified buyer has signed a confidentiality agreement. This protects their business from unwanted exposure and ensures that we can manage the business sale process in a confidential manner.
Inc. 5000 Business Brokers
As we continue to provide excellent service to our clients, we plan on being on the Inc. 5000 for many years to come. In fact, we have already exceeded last year’s total revenue as of early July of this year. We are on pace to nearly double our revenue in 2022. As we have grown, we have been careful to maintain the same quality of brokerage services which has landed us on over 8 lists of the best business brokers in the United States. As we grow, it does help to bring higher quality services to our clients as more business brokers equals more potential buyers for each of our assignments.
