What kind of business is it? Do you have a website? I think for selling it online that would be an important factor.

Two ideas for you:

1. I would get a copy of the book 2007 Business Reference Guide, published, I think, by Business Brokerage Press. This book (which all the business brokers use) provides a bunch of rules of thumb about valuing different businesses. The book is pretty expensive. About $100, I think. But it'll at the very least make you realistic about the sorts of valuations small businesses get.

2. I think you can post a business for sale listing at bizbuysell.com. I don't know much about this site except that I notice that the legitimate brokers who sell CPA firms all seem to use it. (BTW, the site is really kind of fun to look at... you get quite a bit of info about the various businesses for sale.)

You can hire a broker in your area to sell it for you. However, if it is an internet business, you will have to have a trainning plan with the business.
