- First things first, you need to look for a way out to start a conversation with the potential developer. You can look for their contact form online, or message them on slack, twitter, LinkedIn etc. Try sending them a friendly message in which you can ask them what they are currently working on as this will give you an idea about the kind of projects they can handle. And, politely let them know about the task you want to complete and if they are available to complete it or not.
- Discuss about the amount they will be charging to develop the website and how much are they willing to pay. This should be fixed before begin with the hiring.
- If by chance, the web developer you want to hire is not available to take up your work then, you can ask him/ her politely for recommendations. Usually, these developers have an idea about who is looking for a job and will be the best fit for your project.
- Have a clear idea about all the customizations required from your end in the website in terms of plugins, themes, pages etc. And, talk about these with the developer to make him/ her understand the requirements to be on the same page without any confusions.
