In order to get an idea of how much the project will cost I need to post on freelancer. I see two problems with this:
- Firstly I am asking vendors to quote on a project which may never happen; and
- Even if it does go ahead it is likely to only go ahead about 1-2 months after we have an idea of costs.
Is it okay to post in this way? Should I only be posting for jobs which are ready to go ahead? If so, how can I possibly evaluate the cost/benefit of a project without getting an idea of how much it will cost first?
I would be very interested to hear your thoughts.
