I joined upwork couple month ago to create an online cosultancy site with Wordpress. I prepared a solid basis: project brief, plugins, plattform etc. First I gave an unexperienced freelancer (no feedback, no earnings) a chance to accomplish the task "create an appointment booking page". He wasn´t able to comlete the task and I finished the contract. Learned from this bitter experience (I do not like loosing my precios time), I took a high professional freelancer with 12 years experence on upwork. He is a very busy guy, so I doubled the time to comlete the task (12 days, instead of 5). I waited and kept the contact to this guy. On deadline day he finished the contract without having any job done. So I lost a month of my time to create an appointment booking page. What I can do better?

Are you paying the kind of money that attracts the better freelancers? Sounds like the first person wasn't experiencd enough and the second was too busy with (maybe better paying) other work.
