Features & Benefits

Free Valuation to Generate More Leads

  • Differentiate yourself from competitors. Offer a FREE ballpark business valuation to attract new clients.
  • Identify higher-net-worth individuals. Target business owners with higher income and more financial planning needs.
  • Provide better financial planning. Knowing the value of a client’s business means you are better able to assess their investment, insurance, wealth management and estate planning needs.
  • Establish reputation as a “trusted advisor”. Since most owners massively over-estimate their business’ value, you can provide a more reasonable estimate of their current value using an actual ballpark business valuation.
  • Achieve higher close ratios. Attract clients with the added-value of a FREE valuation and ability to show shortfalls that may exist in their current financial plan (including being under-insured).
