Selling a website can be an obscure business. Finding the right person to sell it to and knowing how the process works is difficult enough. However, that’s not all there is to it. You’ll also need to figure out how much to charge for your site – and finding clear answers to all of these questions isn’t easy.
Nowadays, selling a WordPress website isn’t as complicated as it once was. There are plenty of services that can walk you through the process, but the real question is whether you should sell in the first place.
If you run a website of any significant size, odds are you utilize some form of content management system (CMS). WordPress, Drupal, or the like.
And, if you don’t use such a system, you probably employ rather extensive use of some form of server-side, scripted, page generation. PHP, ASP, Ruby… the list goes on and on.
There are many scenarios where such a system makes a great deal of sense. But I’m here to tell you, right now, that it is highly unlikely that you actually need them… at least for the majority of your page.

Many photographers think that a website is not necessary in their line of work. They tend to think that displaying their work on platforms like 500px, flickr or instagram, and having a Facebook page for their business is enough. Is it though?
The answer is simply no, sometimes it’s even bad relying on social media platforms alone to help you expand your business. A website can help you display your work in any manner you prefer, allowing you to cherry pick what gets shown where and what is hidden.
