"Feature creep" becomes a huge issue since the "business guy" doesn't understand the technical challenges.Many times, the programmer is someone with less experience who is willing to take a chance and doesn't have the knowledge to create a flexible and scalable architecture.I have enough experience from prior projects to know how to outcompete most other sites.

Deyan You should prepare requirements or functional specifications included wireframe/mockup for your expected site with from high level then elaborate into more detail level if needed (the best is to user story level as recommend in Agile/Scrum).Have a clear, list of features that you think you need to bring a product to market.Plan out all UI/UX elements and have a very specific sitemap and procedure map.Eventually, everyone gets fed up after it's clear that it will take hundreds of hours of programming work just to create a proof-of-concept, and people start dropping out.Good, experienced developers are expensive and difficult to come by.I am participating in a small development company (which was a startup itself not long ago) and know first hand how freelance developers behave and how many perks you could get from a company if you find a good one.
