    Hi Mitty,

    Outsourcing can be great if done properly. Instead of typing everything out again, there's a good thread on here:

    I've used Craigslist to a lot of success actually. Here are some pointers to make that process successful.

    1. Be specific about your project. Know what you want it to look like, how you want it to operate, and what features you will need. The more specific you can be about the project on Craigslist the better leads you'll get back.

    2. CHECK REFERENCES AND PORTFOLIOS! This is a huge one! Make sure you ask for samples of past work and references. Don't even consider anyone without these crucial things. Actually look at their samples (Do you like the design? Do things work? Are there broken links? Does it look professional?) and actually check references (Did the project come in on time? On budget? Did the programmer complete the task to satisfaction? Did they help implement the site and were they available to make changes later?)

    3. Set a budget. Figure out how much you want to pay and stick to that. Sign a contract with a completion date and a specific budget so everyone is on the same page.

    4. Get your act together. Again, the more you know what you want the smoother the process. I gave my designer complete images (basically fake screenshots) of what I wanted ever page to look like. Because I had my act together and I was organized things went well.

    Anyway, hope this helps. If you want the name of the guy I ended up using (he's great!) just PM me.
