I want to submit an RFP for a new website that I'm starting but don't know where to go to do that. Seems to me like there would be a website where people could post RFPs and people could respond and bid on them. Anyone know of any place I can do that? Should I post the RFP here?
Commercial Exchange [webmasterworld.com] Want Ads: help wanted and services offered. Premoderated and can take up to a week. Read the charter before posting. Most ads not approved due to charter violations. Only full members may post.
A quick search of the web should also provide plenty of links to this type of service.
Depending on the country where you are located, some hosting providers offer this service as an "added value".
I tried one when I first started out just to see what I was competing against and had a massive range of responses most notably in the differences between prices and offerings (not to mention the lackof professionalism from some of them).
Perhaps do a search on G for "find a web designer" and other variations and then restrict it with the "pages from <your country>" and have a look at a couple of sites.
You may find one that allows you to register (be discreet if you wish) and then look through their database of registered designers. The one I tried allowed you to post a RFP, with an end-date for quotes etc and then emailed the quotes to you (email address was not publicly displayed but they later did send me a bit of promotional material - fair enough I guess).
[A most enlightening experience for those who have not tried it by the way.]
