The support to succeed
As a LINK business broker, you have access to smart tools, advice and resources:
LINK’s own online training tool, individually adapted for each country and certified through our Franchisor Office. LINK.Academy is a workplace training system and competency-based standards programme, which translates into proven training and operational procedures. These have been documented in easy-to-follow sales manuals, incorporating appropriate policies, protocols and practices. LINK.Academy counts towards five hours of non-verifiable training, approved by the REA.
LINK’s award-winning proprietary appraisal tool offers a detailed, accurate appraisal of a seller’s business, based on global sales data and finely-tuned algorithms. This data is drawn from thousands of business sales, sourced from our own sales records and third parties. Valu.LINK generates a professional report for the broker and the seller.
We developed, and are continuously refining, the world’s most powerful cloud-based business broking CRM system. Designed by brokers for brokers, One.LINK is securely accessible by all LINK brokers. Its database contains all seller and buyer details, contact management functionality, and a sophisticated search and match tool. Automation enables brokers to target and contact prospective buyers about new listings that match certain criteria, and captures buyer data if they respond to web advertising. One.LINK also makes it easy to produce documents like Information Memorandums or Confidentiality Agreements.
LINK’s powerful marketing programme has been developed and refined over more than two decades with extensive market research, to put your clients’ businesses in front of the right buyers. Ad.LINK gives brokers proven marketing tools that reach buyers through targeted emails, networking, social media, our websites, and both digital and press advertising. This is supported by regular awareness campaigns to keep LINK top of mind for business owners.
LINK’s market-specific websites are built and updated with local Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in mind. Buyers in New Zealand, Australia, and the United States can easily find the LINK site that relates to them. The platform supports email alerts, online Confidentiality Agreements, detailed search, automatic uploading to business sale portals and more.
