Any good website designer will always ask you what your budget is for the design of your WordPress website, but it needn’t make you skeptical of their intentions, or give you any cause for concern. It doesn’t mean they intend to artificially increase the cost of the web design to match your budget – instead, it simply allows them to recommend the most suitable design within the budget you have available, whether it be hundreds, or tens of thousands of pounds.
For example, would you walk into an estate agency without revealing your budget? Certainly not – the property agent wouldn’t know whether to show you a one bedroom flat or a sprawling estate in the countryside! If you keep tight-lipped about your budget it could give website designers no other choice but to have to guess what your budget is – and they could be way off the mark. If your actual budget is, say £10,000 and your web designer assumed it was around £1,000, the design, content, theme, and number of pages wouldn’t reflect that of the higher budget, and therefore the designer is not only unlikely to get the job, it could also damage their reputation if the client thinks they are being deceived!
WordPress websites can be built whether you have a small or large budget (or anything else in between), so be upfront with your web designer so they can give you the best possible website that’s right for your business, and your pocket.
