Hi, I'm currently in the process of hiring for a web design and development project. It's a big website, built using Wordpress, that will involve memberships, course presentation and various other features. Yesterday my boss decided that I should do most of the design myself and we can "farm out the rest of it" cheap. I am very, very aware of the vital importance of getting every part of this process right, especially right now in the first stages when we're building the foundations. I have plenty of reasons from my point of view why this is a very bad idea, but I was wondering whether any of you may be able to help me with a few more technicalities so I don't end up having to scrimp on pennies? Very many thanks in advance! Eva

Hi Eva, Don't go for cheap. that is never a good idea. Look for an experienced freelancer, search and invite people to the job yourself after going over their past work, feedback and skills. Invite them to the job and then make a selection. If you focus on the rate too much, you might end up wasting more resources than getting quality work. The marketplace has a vast range of quality developers and I'm sure if you look around, you'll find the right person within a reasonable budget. Hope this helps...

I can't speak for designers, but as a writer/editor I have been hired a number of times to fix writing done by cheap writers. It is easier for me to write something from scratch than to fix a mess; therefore, the clients paid me more for my editing than they would have paid me to do the writing in the first place. And that's in addition to what they originally paid the cheap writers. Designers have probably had similar experiences.
