It is indeed a joyous time when you happen to be ready to sell your website. At the same time you would also be positioned with questions and some unknown variables that would be the deciding factors affecting the sale. You must have been working for years to build up your website and when you finally sell your website for a good amount, all the hard work seems to be worth it. However, the sale process is not as simple as you expect it to be.
What is the worth of your site?
This is the biggest challenges that you would come across at the time of selling your site. Well, the answer is pretty simple; your website is worth as much as the seller is ready to give you for it. This certainly doesn’t help the time of advertising your site for sale. You do not deserve to be undercut after years of hard work that you put behind it. But you need to remember that you are actually selling something that’s considered to be a virtual property. The best ever calculation would be to add value to your website, then average the annual revenue of the site excluding the running costs. It’s really hard deciding on a bottom line at the time of selling your site because there are some other factors attached to the site such as the hosting, marketing and operating costs.
Looking for buyers
Once you done with deciding the exact price of the website, you can start looking out for some potential buyers. The best place to hunt for the buyers would be around the local technology market place. You can also approach the retail outlets that used to sell their products on your website. The advertisers on your site could also be interested in your site. However, it is extremely important to present all the financial information and the revenue figures to the buyers in order to have a smooth deal. You must always approach only those individuals who truly understand the worth of your website. You can also approach some of the online places to sell your website such as some professional forums along with eBay’s business/websites for sale section.
