Over the past few months we’ve been working on revamping our current website CharSOLgrill.com. We outran what we could reasonable do with DreamWeaver and so we looked for a web developer.
As with any startup, we were looking to keep the website development costs low and so we decided to give the ever popular Elance a try. We received a number of low cost bids for the development work. Each had good references and seemingly solid website portfolios. But the results so far have been mixed.
Please see my review of the Elance work to date:
1. Extremely Cheap
2. Fairly prompt response and turn-around-times
1. You never know what you are going to get.
2. Complex ideas will never get done
I would suggest Elance for someone looking to do a very basic website or to get the backbone of a complicated website done. Anything beyond the very basics are just a waste of time.
Please make sure to check back to www.charsolgrill.com in the near future to see how the Elance changes came out.
