Hey Everyone, I was recently referred to check out this page by a friend and I have to say my mind is absolutely blown. As someone who does not come from a tech background many of the posts and ideas shared on this website are brand new to me. I've worked for advertising agencies as a student and to be honest the methods explored on here are miles ahead of a lot of these companies. (Even just the White Hat) I'm still learning but once I feel comfortable my eventual goal is to build 1 or a few income generating niche websites. As a current (unhappy) full time professional I do not have a lot of free time so my goal right now is to just learn as much as possible. I believe this is the future of small business but it also seems like a gamble especially for someone like me who plans on investing personal savings. My top priority is developing a page with good content with the help of a free lancer. (Please do not respond as another thread will be opened in the appropriate topic) My question is how do I screen/select one? Any advice helps. I would like get to know some other experienced members. I'm not looking for someone to teach me how to increase traffic or help me pick a niche but I would like to be able to have a seasoned opinion during the strategy building phase. Although I'm not experienced in this area I do have experience in the finance/operation management industry and I am always willing to help. Wish me luck!
