This is the information that often people shopping around for a new website keep close to their chest.
The frustrating part for you, the client, is if you come to a design agency with an idea of a budget in mind, you can save yourself a lot of time, energy, and ultimately costs.
As a business person I understand that you want to see what is being offered, and at what cost. As you can see from a quick search on Google, you can websites build from fees of as little as $5 to well into six figure sums.
In which case, provide a price bracket. You may have set aside $4,000 – $6,000 – A very reasonable figure to have when dealing with professional web designers. You may have set aside $10,000 – $15,000. Again tell us.
With an open declaration of budgets, and the same brief sent to each design company, you will get a similar quote, but potentially with very different solutions.
- What budget do you have in place for the design of your new website?
- Do you require further marketing to launch the new website?
- Will you require support, or maintenance moving forward?
- Is training or maintenance required if you commission a Content Management System?
