    I currently have a fully developed business plan that is based on what will eventually become a web 2.0 website/app. The basis for app design and website design has been specifically thought out down to the specific urls of each page including content. This will be an e-commerce website/app so it will need back end architecture to handle the processing of each transaction. I am looking to hire a person or multiple people and have a couple of questions regarding what would be the most efficient and safe way to handle this. We have a full NDA for all prospective hires so I hope you understand that I cannot divulge any specifics to the project.

    1) How much work would go into getting a project of this size off the ground?
    2) Where can I find (a) freelancer(s) to do this kind of job? or
    3) Do you hire (an) employee(s) instead?
    4) I understand that predicting project costs are subjective so what would be the range for an hourly rate of this type of work?
    5) How much of this work would it benefit me to learn, not to do the work but to better understand the process? How would I go about learning it?
    6) Any suggestions to questions I may not have asked?

    Thanks for your time

    Fred

    it sounds like you have the idea of your project thought out but your knowledge in implementing it seems to be lacking quite a bit.

    If I were you I would contact several agencies in your area that have a portfolio of similar work and try to get some of your questions answered by them. Agencies wont have a problem signing an NDA and should be able to give you the information you are looking for.

    But just for fun here are my 2cents

    1) How much work would go into getting a project of this size off the ground?

    Judging by your brief description I would say a lot.

    2) Where can I find (a) freelancer(s) to do this kind of job? or

    Don't go with freelancers for a project of this size go with a company/agency.

    3) Do you hire (an) employee(s) instead?

    Since you clearly lack the knowledge to execute this don't hire employees.

    4) I understand that predicting project costs are subjective so what would be the range for an hourly rate of this type of work?

    Not totally sure here but it's def going to be expensive.

    5) How much of this work would it benefit me to learn, not to do the work but to better understand the process? How would I go about learning it?

    None, your going to be wasting your time as from the sounds of it most of this will be custom built and there's not point to you learning how to code.

    6) Any suggestions to questions I may not have asked?

    Good luck!

    None of your questions can be answered since you have provided absolutely no information due to your NDA.

    That's the kind of half witted response I would have expected had I posted on WF, especially since I already received answers to most of them.

    You asked five very specific questions, yet also said, "I cannot divulge any specifics to the project." You will never receive any accurate answers to questions based on imaginary data, so you will find that any answers you did receive (other than the equally nonspecific answers listed above) will eventually work against you, as they would be based on information you never gave. If you want specific answers, you have someone sign an NDA and then give the specifics so that they can actually consult with you and guide you in the direction you need to go. Your quarter-witted response is something I would expect out of someone who doesn't have a single clue what they are doing, however, so I digress.

    Its depends on requirement
    2) Where can I find (a) freelancer(s) to do this kind of job? or
    dont go for company they will charge more, you can hire from here
    3) Do you hire (an) employee(s) instead?
    no need, freelancer is enough because its project based work not long term.
    4) I understand that predicting project costs are subjective so what would be the range for an hourly rate of this type of work?
    it also depends on the wor and the freelancers or company, may be 8$ to 20$
    5) How much of this work would it benefit me to learn, not to do the work but to better understand the process? How would I go about learning it?
    you will understand the process of site development.
    6) Any suggestions to questions I may not have asked?
