Hi all, I published a blog post yesterday on why I think it makes good sense to outsource work that you don't have a full understanding or capability of. In my case I did this for the coding of my website/blog. I had one comment from a student asking what they should do if they don't have the money to outsource? I'd like to write a response post suggesting ways that design students, with very little money to invest and little knowledge of coding, can produce an online presence that's still considered professional. Off the cuff I suggested showcase sites like Behance and Deviant Art. Are there any more sites like this that would be suitable for budding designers to send prospective clients/employers? I'd also like to suggest other routes that might be taken such as: Exchange of services - finding a coder that will do a job exchange. Perhaps use blogger/wordpress hosted sites Single page portfolios to cut down on the expense Is a facebook fan page acceptable now? (probably not but I thought I'd ask !) I guess the question is should people with limited knowledge of coding be forced to struggle through and do it all themselves with a sub-standard result? Surely there are better options available? I'd like to know how you produced your first web presence wheter you were a designer that couldn't coder or a coder that couldn't design. Any suggestions or insights you can offer will help me out a lot, as I think it's something that a lot of students would like some advice on.
