    You can post something here (only 5 bucks) Wanted - Members Looking To Hire You

    I would suggest you have a list of exactly what you want done, and look at the credentials of who ever replies.

    Also have a budget in mind.

    You could also post the job up on some freelance sites and see if you get any bids.

      howit,

      We probably all have/had that feeling at one time or another. I still struggle with that almost daily.
      I am not sure if your plate is full due to your marketing efforts, or just life in general, but if you can't afford to get someone to get this started for you, look into Chris Farrells free training. You can google him, and he has a newbie free program that will teach you how to get your first website up and running in just one day.
      He is straight forward and very honest.
      I would suggest this, if possible, since it is best that you fully understand the basics before just starting to outsource everything, or else you will get burned eventually because you won't know what to look for in your outsourcers.

      Hope this helps some,
      Robert

        Just make sure you hire someone that has feedback that can not be faked. oDesk is a great place to hire people, freelancer is not bad either, I got a lot of jobs from there when I first started out and met some people I still work with today.

    Howit, if you need a WordPress based website, I can build one for you. I am not sure what you mean by Commerce in the brackets.

        You can use WordPress with any hosting. It is really easy to install, as a matter of fact you can do it right in your control panel without having to go through an FTP client.

        WordPress is great because you can do simple changes in the future yourself, the learning curve is not steep at all. If you are looking for a turnkey site check out my signature link.

        We don't have a ton of sites in our portfolio because we mainly build our own sites and we don't want to give away our niches, but if you like what you see we can give you a few links privately to the kind of work we do.

        If you want to sell physical products, then WP may not provide you with enough flexibility. Search for "site build it" on Google. They are a very reliable company and specialize in helping people set up their own eBusiness sites. They even offer a money back guarantee, so just give it a try.
