One of the most common questions that I receive from friends is “what is a reasonable price for a website?”… Talk about a complex question! In order to get a fair quote from a developer/designer/programmer, it’s important to think about what you want your website to look like and what type of content you’d like it to contain. This will help give your designer/programmer/developer an idea of how much time will be required to develop your site. Also, it will shed light on the type of programming language that will best fit for your site.
This is a great poster that I came across on Pinterest that will help you walk through the process and translate your vision into language that programmers/designers/techies need in order to create your site.
