This is a question I get daily from potential clients and to tell you the truth, I am not lying when I say ‘IT ALL DEPENDS‘. I think sometimes clients believe that they have to keep their budget to themselves to get the most bang for their buck, they feel that by putting out a solid number their developer will try to price the job in such a manner as to use the entire budget whether the job warrants it or not.
That may very well be the case, once I get a client to share their budget I generally try to squeeze as much functionality and features that is on the clients wish list into the project for the amount of money they can afford so as to ensure they get the best possible site they can for the budget they have.
The answer is yes, we maintain the same standards and best practices regardless of the budget on the project. However, a website that costs $500,000 will have a lot more features and functionality than a website budgeted at $250,000.
I often try to liken the cost of a website to that of buying a house, you can start at the very low end and purchase a studio apartment in a not so desirable community and pay very little or you can really dig deep and end up with the mansion on the hill with 13 bedrooms, swimming pool, and tennis courts or you can go anywhere in between.
It all comes down to what you want to achieve.
