Choosing to sell your website business on your own can prove to be a mistake that will cost you profits, time and energy. One of the benefits of working with an experienced internet business broker is that they have access to an entire network of potential buyers that are just waiting for the right deal (for them) to come along. An entrepreneur attempting to sell their website on their own is likely not to have access to this tremendous resource.

Expert internet business brokers will also be able to spot those “buyers” that are not really interested at all in purchasing your site. These range from people who like to look but never buy, those who have malicious intent and hope to steal company information, and those who just are not financially viable enough to make a qualified offer.

Hire has been in the business of selling website businesses since 1998, and have a long list of client testimonials that attest to their reputation in the industry. They offer their clients a free consultation and free website valuation, and never take a penny of commission until their client’s site has sold.
