Unfortunately, this is how many graphic designers and web developers see their clients.
Of course everyone wants to get the best price possible, but there is some degree of truth in the old adage “you get what you pay for”.
When striking a balance between your budget and the services you seek, be fair and understand that website programming and creative design take time and are skilled professions.
Make sure you have a comprehensive service contract with your vendor outlining exactly what is to be done so that there are no questions later about what is included in the negotiated price. This serves to protect both parties and creates the environment for a healthier relationship.
