find a web developerWell, you found (a good) one!

 

Most likely you came to this page by searching Google on where to find freelance web developer online. Google is a great resource to find just about anything.

If you are developing a small to mid size website, or need new website development or maintenance on your existing website, I may be the perfect solution for you.

Projects of this size do not require a full time in house web developer. I am available to do web programming on an as needed basis. Once the project is complete you may need website maintenance or SEO services, but these tasks only require part time dedication on smaller websites.

 

Consider the following when trying to find a web developer to work on your website.

The Size and Timeline of your Website Project

The size of your website will determine if you should be looking for a web development company with a team of developers, or if a  individual or freelance web developer will be sufficient. If a larger project and timeline is an issue, then working with a team of web developers may make more sense.

Your Website Budget

Your budget will play a role in what type of web developer you are looking for.  Most likely a web development company is going to charge higher fees than a web developer hired as a contractor. Hiring overseas will most likely cost significantly less. Companies tend to charge a minimum hour per month commitment, where freelancers tend to charge per project.

Communication

Do you feel most comfortable meeting in person, speaking on the phone or corresponding over email about your project?  Geographic location of your web developer will play a factor if you must meet face to face.  Timezone differences and language barriers need be considered if you hire overseas.

Use Available Technology

The website development industry is still relatively new and a specialized market.  This makes typical ways of finding a professional resource like recognizing a brand name, or asking people for referrals a challenge.

Search engines are great starting point if you want to find  an individual’s freelance web site for someone local,  or have them work remotely from anywhere for you.

There are numerous directories to start your search like, Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yelp  and social media sites like Facebook or LinkedIn.

There are numerous online job board website that cater to companies and freelancers world wide. (Wading through these can be a time consuming effort though. Comparing it to posting a job in the news paper and getting 100 resumes in 5 minutes. Most of this is automated junk. The provider has not even read your job description. )

Simply Googling “freelance web programmer” and you will find a experienced web developer that offers professional web development services. I can also help you get found at the top of search engine results too .  : )
