I'll give you an example....I own and operate several online shopping sites, when I started I wanted very badly to give the job of building the website and back-end to a local (Pittsburgh) web design company. After lining up several interviews and receiving 3 quotes for the work I had prices from $ 15,000- $40,000. I forgot to mention that two of the guys showed up LATE for our meeting and one didn't return my initial call for 3 days! One of the firms was started by 3 very bright guys from CMU, not dummies. This was far more than I wanted to spend and decided to use Elance, a company that allows designers and programmers to bid on your job from all over the world. Long story short I had a graduate from IIT (makes our MIT look like kiddy school) design the site for $6,000 and include a 2 year warranty and free upgrades.
