    I'm an amateur web app developer and I have always designed and implemented by own webapps.  I am too busy with the other aspects of my business to do some work I need, and I do not know how to go about finding someone to implement parts of an webapp I've been working on.

    I would appreciate some advice with regard to the following questions:

    1. If I need someone to build out part of a page, do I pay by the hour, or do I pay by the project?  Is there a place somewhere on the internet that lists compensation rates?
    2. Is there somewhere on the internet where it is best to advertise the job?
    3. Are projects paid upon completion, before, or some before and some after?
    4. Would it be better to find someone in my area to work on the project or does it really matter where they are located?
    5. If I know what I want it to look like, should I mock it up in Photoshop, or is there a different customary procedure?
    6. My apps are data driven.  Should I export a sample database to test against, or is there some other standard procedure?
    7. Should I include which web browsers the project is targeted against, or is there some standard procedure?
    8. Is there anything else that I should be asking?

    Any help with these questions would be appreciated,
