Oct. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- CHICAGO, IL -   Internet business owners, tired of having to pay high commissions for ill-prepared and non-responsive brokers are excited about the opportunity to deal directly through a new auction marketplace. This finding comes from the results of over six months of discussions and research with website owners and online marketers by the developers of venforo. According to Jon Berman, founder and President of venforo, most online entrepreneurs started their ventures because the internet offered a platform for a direct conversation with customers. Social media further empowered independent-minded business owners to enhance that interaction on their own. When the time arises to sell their valuable websites, owners want to continue direct dealings with potential customers, in this case, prospective buyers.

According to Berman, ”Website owners recognize that business brokers provide a valuable service for very large and complex deals but when it comes to most web-based businesses, owners prefer to deal directly.” A trusted marketplace, mindful of eBay, but focusing on web properties is the preferred platform for optimizing return on investment, by reducing time and costly commissions.

venforo was launched in early October after over 8 months of research, development and iterative testing. This is no cloned software but a new auction application designed from the bottom up with extensive input from website owners. venforo enables online entrepreneurs to easily list, promote, search, bid, buy, sell and close a variety of web properties directly between buyer and seller in an auction format. Tiered pricing options enable sellers to select the right listing plan for their budget and promotional needs. Documentation including best practices for buyers and sellers as well as a post-sale closing guide provides ample support for newbies as well as experienced website buyers and sellers.  As an introductory promotion, venforo is offering business owners wanting to sell their web business,  free listings with the entry level Basic plan.
