Many people don't want to disclose their budget when they contact us.
This is counterproductive. If we know your objectives and your budget, we can come up with the best solution. If your budget is low, we will think about what can be done with it. Either we can select a specific technology that is cheaper to set up or we can suggest a phased approach where more functionality can be added later.
Now is the time to mention any deadlines you might have. It goes without saying, make them reasonable! Web projects can take anywhere from six weeks to six months depending on the size of the project.
