I already have the website planned out: I know how the site should look like, what it should be able to do.
However, I do not know how you actually hire professionals to do this. Will I have to hire a designer to design the look of the website? Then hire a programmer to work on the functionality of the website? If this is so - how do put the two together? Will I have to delegate what the programmer is saying to the designer and vice versa? Or should they just work it out on their own?
I think I will be using elance.com to find my lancers...or is there a better place to go to?
This is like saying, "I want to start a widget company. I know just what I want my widgets to do and what they should look like. Do I have to hire a crew of factory workers, foreman, salespeople, engineers, marketing people, and bookkeepers? How do I put all these people together? Or will it just work out?"
Starting by hiring freelancers to do the various parts that you imagine need to be done... is starting at the wrong end of the horse! ;)
I was just thinking, do web developers also deal with the programming/graphics/design of the website? If not, I guess I must hire a group of web technicians to help.
Even if you have little interest in many of the tasks involved, it will be helpful to know what is involved in each task. This will help you GREATLY in hiring people on future projects.
