I want to start an online business, but I do not understand web design etc. Would hiring someone be smart?

I want to start a dating site. However, I do not understand web design, coding and such. Is there a way I could outsource the technical set up side of it and focus on the business side of it?

Of course, you can hire a team to do that. Everyone who do the internet business do not know how to code and that's perfectly fine.

The same thing happened to me when I started my business in the past. And even today I don't know to code. Here is how you can do.

- Go to an online market place like - Upwork.com (I prefer that).
- Put a post there with your needs and requirements (You will get quotations from different people once you do this)
- Go ahead and filter the best based on their experience, reviews, and price
- Assign them the project

Not much to do here. If people have got good reviews then they will work hard to maintain those reviews and will provide you with the quality service.

One thing I would like to add - Be clear on your goals. I talk to many clients of mine who want to do something but are not clear in terms of what, why, and how? Get this clarity and proceed. You will reach their faster.

You can always get back to me if you need anything.

Before you sink 30k custom developing your solution, try to rig it up with Wordpress first.

The backend can be a jungle of a mess as long as the front looks food. After all, you’re just testing your idea.

Obviously you can hire people to help you out. My concern is that if you're asking this question, you might not exactly know what you're doing. In which case, maybe you shouldn't be shelling money out quite yet.

If you've got everything in order, but the only thing missing is a website, then yea hire the work out. If you don't know enough about business and wondering if hiring a bunch of people will allow you to run a sustainable business - I'd say tough gamble.
