If you are a programmer looking for someone to work alongside you or a business owner looking for someone to create a website for you, then you may want to consider attending some networking events. Many regions of the UK now have networking events that are aimed at people in the web design and marketing business. These events often attract, programmers, designers, social media experts and marketing consultants. You may be able to attend these events even if you are not working within one of these industries but looking for someone that does.
Networking events can be a great way to meet new people and find contacts that you may want to use or need to use in the future. You can often get a feel for a person by meeting them face to face rather than through email or over a phone call.
If you are looking for one to create a website for you, then why not go with a specification that you can show people to get a feed back on if they may be interested in working on the project? It may be that you cannot find the right person there, but often people within this industry know others that may offer exactly what you are looking for to develop your project.
