How would you go about hiring a web developer?
(And yes, I mean "you" personally).

(I always seem to hire the wrong people).

    I guess I would base it on:

    1. Their portfolio
    2. Feedback from other users
    3. A small paid test to see how well they do
    4. Their personality
    5. Delivery time
    6. Reliability

    In no particular order

      Have another developer review their code. Of course, keep in mind that most developers hate the way all other developers write code. LOL (unless it's really, really good.)

      And, don't base your decision on price alone. Remember "you get what you paid for."

    One project at a time...
    When things are going well, fly out and meet the person.
    Then hire them full time.

    I am in the process of doing just this, and never work too long with people I have not met personally.

      Hi James,

      I don't think I've had the pleasure of working with you.. Otherwise you wouldn't be asking this question

      Seriously, I'm sure I can help you with any web project, large or small. Send me a PM and let me know what you're looking to have done!

    There is a fine line between being respectful and offensive to one's point of view and in advertisement it can either lead to effective marketing or a lot of trouble. As they say that one man's controversial idea is another man's offensive idea. Sometimes resorting to provocative campaigns are totally worthwhile if they help you to increase your sales and establish a sustainable brand name in the market. But does that only work for big corporations like Apple, Coca-cola to take risks like these? Can small brands or startups consider such tactics for their advertisement plan as well without destroying their amateur brand legacy? These intriguing questions always pop up in my mind and I think that whether is it a good idea to create advertisements that are beautiful and genuine to attract customers which has a greater possibility of going flat with minimum response from the market or to go for calculated controversial ad campaign against your competitor to gain a lot of public attention?

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions

    I scour the WaFo to see if there are any unique methods, etc. that maybe I haven't thought of. Sometimes there are! But one thing that I haven't seen much of is posts that will bring you BACK TO THE BASICS. No matter WHAT level of knowledge you think you are at... if you are not getting clients consistently and bringing home paychecks... then you need to re-gather.
