We're a non-profit niche social networking company serving a minority group. We are have a volunteer working on marketing our pending web social network app, however as CEO, I'm looking forward to hire an expert in web marketing tactics mainly to help make our launch a successful one. The main role of the person is with helping us plan with our marketing strategies as well as helping us implement them. We are very hard pressed with resources, what's the best way to hire one which we can afford, at say a rate of $10/hr or even less. I really do not have trust in freelance websites because of the poor quality I've received from them so far.
Many of us have loads of information on our website. Use your $10/hour to hire a staffer or intern to read all of the content we have published and apply it to your business.
As others have said, you would be better off applying for a marketer to work pro-bono on your project than asking them to do their job for $10.
