I look forward to hearing about your business needs, design dreams and website ideas. I work with all types of people and sizes of companies and try to find a project level that meets both the requirements and budget of my clients. Not everyone is the same and I won’t try to upsell you to the most extravagant solution if you don’t need that.
So what do you charge?
This is the most popular question and understandably so. You hate spending alot of time meeting, chatting and discussing things just to find out it is 10x what you wanted to spend. That being said, this question is hard to answer without knowing exactly what is needed, deadlines, scope of technical requirements, number of pages for print items, etc. I’m hesitant to create one-size-fits-all packages and then try to squeeze everyone into that. For most projects though, with just a bit of information and a short discussion, perhaps and email or two — I can get you an estimate range with my suggestions on how to proceed.
You are Cheaper/Costlier than Company X
I understand you have options and the odds that pricing will end up being identical is pretty slim. That being said if things are way off then we need to discuss the reasons. Sometimes it is a misunderstanding and sometimes there are firms out there that will give you a small up front estimate and then jack it up after they have you in the fold. It happens. I am not a large firm with tons of overhead so I can usually keeps costs fairly lean. If you have a budget number you have to stick within please let me know. If it is unrealistic, I will tell you.
