  1. Thanks for your valuable advice! However, I don’t think you’ve mentioned all the marketplaces where you can search for talented freelancers. I suggest that you add my favorite webite to this post: XPlace . There are a lot of talented freelance experts, and I’ve never been disappointed with the services they provided. The job board is commission free.
