So you want to get a website built... Part 3: Where to find someone to build your site


Hi everybody, it's me, The Geek

On our last podcast, I discussed how to choose a web designer/developer. However, after a review of my comments with Sensei, I realized that it was pretty fast, with a lot of information that may have been a little much for some people to be able to take in. So in this series of blog posts, I'm going to review my talk, hopefully in an understandable manner.

This is part three of a three-part series, in which I'll discuss how to go about getting a website built. In part one, I discussed how to determine the roles you will need to get your site built. In part two,  I discussed how to go about evaluating prospective designers and/or developers to fill those roles. In this third part, I will discuss where you can look to find the people to hire.

Now that you know the roles you need to hire, and how you can evaluate candidates for those roles, it's time to take a look at where to find a designer/developer.

One of the first things you can do is to look at sites similar to what you want, and try to discover who built that site. Sometimes sites will have a link to the builder in the footer, as can be seen in the footer of the Sensei and The Geek website. You can also try asking the site owner if they will connect you with the designer/developer, which is also a way to get some inside information on that designer/developer before approaching them.

If your site is a local site, for example a local restaurant or a local retailer, then you may want to look for a local agency. These agencies will understand the local market, and may be able to tie you up with other groups or opportunities in your area, making your site more effective for your local market.

Another way to go about looking for sites, is to determine if there is a particular Content Management System (CMS) you would like to use as the base of your site. Two very common ones are WordPress, and Drupal (my speciality). Learning more about these systems may give you a better idea of which system matches your needs better, and therefore finding a specialist in this system is likely to give you a better final product. WordPress developers/designers can be hired at, and Drupal developers can be hired at, or by posting in the Drupal forum.

Finally, you can hire freelancers at sites like People Per Hour, or Upwork. These sites will give a range of freelancers, often with evaluations on their work by people who have hired them.

If you do decide to go with freelancers, you can hire each of the roles you need yourself, allowing you to fine-tune your team. However, you may want to find either a designer or a developer you like, and see if they have someone they regularly work with to fill the other roles. This is often preferable, as they will have a working relationship with the other person, ensuring a smoother work process.


This concludes our three-part series on how to go about getting together a team to build your website. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them in the comment section. Or you can contact us through our contact page, and we'll be happy to give more information!
