Wow, the emails are flowing in, question after question. I received an email from Annmarie who is trying her best to start a brokering business. I should say a liquidation brokering business. Annmarie found what she calls a Liquidation Mentor who provided a basic brokers program and then followed up by consulting with her by phone on a weekly basis. Annmarie expressed frustration as she still has a lot of questions that have gone unanswered in relation to brokering.
Annmarie is in the process of building a broker’s website and she is doing a great job building a following on Facebook. From what I can tell, she is off to a good start. She bought our Broker’s Guide and said it offered much more information than the program she laid out big bucks for.
Here’s what I have to say:
Ok, Liquidation Brokering can be very profitable….it’s not rocket science, but you do need to understand industry fundamentals and have a good grasp on logistics. I’m going to toot my own horn…ready? I brokered successfully for years, and I still do a few deals every now and then.
If you’re just stumbling into the world of liquidations, check out the brokering opportunity. I spell it out offering all the details needed to get a brokering business up and running within the Broker’s Guide. And you’ll be happy to know I don’t charge $500.00 for my all inclusive program. Annmarie, you do not need a mentor; it sound as though you’re off to a great start on your own!
Questions? Go ahead…make my day…
