I have been trying to get a software coded... unfortunately, when i post the job on freelancing sites, i dont get an accurate estimate of the price it takes to get it coded.
What i mean is, if i place the bid for the job at $100, there will be bids for it at $100 EXACT. If i place the bid for the job at $1000, there will be bids for it at $1000 EXACTLY. If i place the bid for $5000, again the same scenario occurs.
I am concerned about this because how am i going to get the best deal for my software? If i bid lower, i am afraid someone will do a slipshod job at maybe $500.
If i place the bid at $5000, i am afraid of getting ripped off by someone who does an average job which can easily be done by someone of good quality for half price off.
Without revealing the software idea, i can say that there will be a market for this and that it will sell back the investment i put on coding the software.
