Hiring and paying an outsourced employee

Ok so I'm brand new to this and have a few questions

I want to hire a WordPress designer type person for a month or so to create about 10 similar websites

If I pay them by the hour, how do I keep track of their hours?

also would anyone recommend setting up a wamp server in the cloud or in my office for them to work on?

Any tips or pointers?

    Hi Jim,
    Welcome aboard.
    Whenever I do sites, I charge a rate for the job, never an hourly rate as it's difficult to properly track from both sides.
    If you want to do 10 sites, then perhaps I can help you. I will send you a pm to discuss it further and it's up to you whether you reply.



    Cheers, Laurence. Writer/Editor/Proofreader.

    It's better to start with a fixed-price quote. No chance of any dispute over time and pricing.

    Designing a website demands one designer and one developer and so, Outsourcing 10 websites on a fixed price is a Good idea.

    Hello. Where are you outsourcing? Are you using a job posting site? Usually, they make use of Time Doctor but our site uses Timeproof. Workers have to log in to the app in order for their employers to view what they're working on. It takes screenshots of their page after every couple of minutes and then uploads it to the site. I don't know of any wamp server though.

    Hire experts only from the reputed organizations because they have project managers, team leaders and team members. They perform all the processes under given time frame. Their previous portfolio ensures the quality of their work.
    In reputed organization firstly they discuss with about your requirements and then tell you the estimated time to finish the task and they charge only for that hours. So you don't need to be worry about their work timing.
