    I have a friend I'm helping set up a site, and he wants a designer/team that is located in North America with a good track record. Mostly all I use is Freelancer when I need something done. I just need to make sure this thing doesn't fall apart six months down the road because it's terrible. I found a great rated coder in UK, and I followed up one of his 5 star ratings, and the guy said a month later they had so many problems with the site, they had to hire another programmer. I want to avoid that. My friend is willing to spend money, so I don't want to cut any corners.

    Any recommendations on companies or where to look? He wants to create a clone of another site, social media type site.

    I've always used freelancers although have a group of designers to choose from, a group of wordpress coders and a group of PHP coders. As I am sure you do, I only use designers and PHP programmers who produce the best. Sadly I do not now of a business to outsource to, the prices are usually excruciatingly high.

    I'm just worried of something happening. If it's my shit and my money I don't care as much, and I know it happens sometimes, but I don't want to have to try and explain it to my friend, who is willing to spend, why his site runs like crap and keeps crashing.

    Hey Jon, hope all is well. I have a few that I've worked with in the past. Send me a PM of list of the requirements and I can get you the right team based in the SF bay area. Pricey but worth it in quality.

    The NA companies I have used, outsourced to Asian agents, resulting in poor service so we took it back in house and the sites are doing fantastically well.
