Where to go to get web services

If you are building a Web site and you need things like web site design, icons, graphics, animation, Flash graphics, etc., here are three places where you can find people who work on a freelance or contract basis:

Even better, find people you can really trust. I know some people who use the services like eLance and Guru, and even the ones who've got excellent ratings have tended not to be so good as they're too busy trying to undercut everyone else and provide too much to too many clients. There's nothing like the personal touch and trust that a long business relationship provides, though it takes time.

Peter, Do you have any people you trust? Maybe if others have personal recommendations, they could post them?

For illustrations I usually turn to John Tomac, although I am not sure what his schedule is like and whether he does much freelancing these days or not.

Don't forget RentACoder - I have had great success with them.

I have to suggest against these services. As one who has marketed and gotten projects form these services it is not worth it. RentACoder was a disaster for communications. Plus the bids that people post are insane, just like Peter said.

There are good and bad providers on elance. And there are good and bad buyers too.
I have had bad experience working for a guy who did not pay me after i had worked for him for a whole week. On the other hand there are buyers who are very fair and prompt in payments.
People have established trust using elance too, with the internet as their only means of communication. I have already done three projects for a single client on elance, and he is planning his fourth project with me. He is already making some steady residual income with the three sites that i have done for him.

There are positives and negatives of each system. One should know how best to make use of the system.

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!
I have a ##KEYWORD## site/blog. It pretty much covers ##KEYWORD## related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

check out codegeni.us. it doesn't charge signup fees and it offers a bonus for joining so looks promising.

A heads up -- Rentacoder buyers will benefit from learning *how* to outsource through the site before making mistakes via trial and error: http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/outsourcing-through-rentacoder/7564711
