Local web support businesses popular with buyers

Stuart McLachlan from Link Newcastle has just completed the sale of a fourth web design/development and hosting business.
“The web support industry is very competitive,” said Stuart.
“Websites age very quickly and most sites need constant modernising and this is where the opportunity lies.
“Weblite, is just one of several local web support businesses sold by Link Business. Its business model was based on providing an excellent service with minimal disruption to clients. They also provided longevity with their customers resulting in referrals and recommendations.
“Generally speaking, one of the attractions of these types of businesses is that they can be operated and managed remotely anywhere within Australia.
“I have a database of over 100 buyers from all around the country looking to acquire these businesses as part of their growth strategy.”
