Should I choose the lowest bidder
Not necessarily. While the lowest bid may seem like the most attractive option, it’s important to consider a variety of factors before choosing a Doer for your project. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Skill level: Review the Doer’s profile and previous projects to ensure that they have the necessary skills to complete your project to your satisfaction.
Experience: Consider the Doer’s experience in the field or type of project you are looking to have completed. A more experienced Doer may be able to complete the project more quickly and to a higher standard.
Reviews and ratings: Look at the Doer’s reviews and ratings from previous projects to get a sense of their reliability, communication skills, and the quality of their work.
Availability: Make sure the Doer you choose has availability that aligns with your project timeline.
Budget: While price is important, it’s also important to consider the overall value of the bid. A slightly higher bid from a more skilled and experienced Doer may ultimately save you time and money in the long run.
By considering these factors in addition to the bid price, you can make a more informed decision and choose the Doer who is best suited for your project.
