Frequently Asked QuestionsLearn more about the ExitPromise Featured Advisor Platform.
I'm already on LinkedIn. How is ExitPromise different?
LinkedIn is a social network designed for professionals to connect and engage with their peers. While you can share content on LinkedIn, these posts aren’t geared towards ranking well in search engines, nor are they meant solely to attract business owners and buyers to the platform.
At ExitPromise, our mission since 2010 has been crystal clear: to assist business owners when they encounter challenges and seek solutions. When these business owners turn to us, they discover helpful articles authored by our Featured Advisors and even have the chance to ask follow-up questions.
Our Featured Advisors not only share their own insights but also engage with business owners and buyers, answering their queries. Additionally, our Featured Business Brokers can showcase their businesses that are up for sale.
What sets ExitPromise apart is our deliberate choice to limit the number of Featured Advisors in each profession to just two per one million population in each state. This means you won’t be lost in a crowd of advisors on ExitPromise.com; instead, you’ll truly stand out as a featured advisor.
Furthermore, ExitPromise gathers information and inquiries from business owners seeking personalized, one-on-one professional assistance with their businesses. When the situation is appropriate, we connect them with our Featured Advisors, providing valuable leads and personal introductions.
How do I answer questions asked on ExitPromise?
It’s very easy. As a Featured Advisor, you will have access to login to the website with your User Name and Password. Once you’ve done so, you may simply click “Reply” where you see a Question you’d like to answer and begin to type.
May I answer any question asked?
Yes, you may answer any question asked on the site — even if it’s on a post you did not author. We love to see multiple advisors answering questions — and so do our visitors!
How will I know if there is a new question I'd like to answer?
At the end of every day, our Featured Advisors receive an email from ExitPromise that captures the questions asked by business owners and buyers on the site. There will be a link for you to click that will take you directly to the question. Just click, login and then answer the question.
I'd like ExitPromise visitors to be able to set up a meeting with me directly from my profile. Is this possible?
Yes, your professional profile will include a link to your calendar to schedule a phone call or zoom meeting with you. Of course this is optional. If you don’t want to sync up your calendar, business owners will be able to email you, visit your website or directly dial the number you’d like. It’s up to you how business owners may reach you.
How could I receive leads and personal introductions from ExitPromise?
Business owners and buyers who are visiting ExitPromise have multiple opportunities to reach out for professional help. When they do so, their lead and important information, such as their name, email and phone number is captured. This information is reviewed and delivered by one of the ExitPromise’s Concierges.
In most cases, the business owner or buyer is contacted by ExitPromise to verify their request and need for assistance. Then we notify the appropriate Featured Advisors in the business owner’s location (State) by email or phone call.
What type of posts may I add to ExitPromise?
Our Featured Advisors may send us their own, original posts, podcasts or videos. They may not be duplicated on another website — even your own website because doing so is not good for Search Engine Optimization.
If I choose to write posts, how will they be promoted?
ExitPromise has a digital marketing team who will promote each post you write by:
- Editing its content for grammar, spelling and overall readability — this keeps our visitors happy;
- Optimizing the title and keywords for SEO purposes — this attracts business owners and buyers seeking your help;
- Adding the post to our homepage;
- Including your post in our email list of business owners and buyers who’ve signed up to receive our email updates; and
- Promoting on our Social Media sites — Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest.
Is ExitPromise a Startup?
Absolutely! We’ve been around for 12 years, assisting over a million business owners. Despite our longevity, we still embrace that startup mentality – staying lean and nimble. 😊
I'm not really very good at website stuff. Is this a DIY project?
Absolutely not. When you join ExitPromise, you will be assigned a Concierge who will build your Featured Advisor profile for you. Once it’s built, you have the final approval before it is published. If you need to add or delete something, such as a client testimonial or new credential, we take care of it for you.
If you are a Featured Business Broker, your Concierge will add and edit your businesses for sales listings.
All ExitPromise posts, articles, and content is added to the site by our digital marketing team. You don’t have to know how to do anything related to updating the website, broker listings or your professional profile.
If you don’t want to write articles and prefer to simply answer questions, that’s okay. And we have many Featured Advisors who are just happy to receive leads and introductions or have their Professional Profile included on the site, It’s totally up to you how much — or little — you’d like to participate in our platform.
