No problem. I just resent it. As far as budget, it might be a good idea to think of things in these terms..
Are your expecting a programmer who's dedicated to the project, has extensive experience and a proven record of success? If so, you're probably looking at a couple thousand USD for a programmer.
Are you willing to work with someone that only has a few projects to show or may not have a solid background, but looking to save money and willing to accept lower quality? If so, you're probably looking at several hundred to a thousand dollars.
Are you looking for someone that does this in their spare time? That will be cheaper than someone who does this full time.
Are you thinking your project will be a high-traffic, high visibility site, and do you need solid design and architecture? If so, it's going to be more expensive.
Some ranges I like to give clients are the following (I usually can work with any budget).
Small / Entry level:
Personal site, or very niche site. Low traffic expectations, no real revenue module.
Typical budget range: $250 - $1,500
Small business application. Usually some expectation of traffic and revenue to be generated from the site.
Typical budget range: $1,500 - $10,000
Mid - Large business site. Expectation of a solid revenue model and higher traffic. Usually mission critical to operations.
Typical Budget: $10,000 - $50,000
You expect thousands of unique visitors / day, and a revenue model in place to support your entire operation (staff, etc). Traffic will be explosive and need a solid architecture. 99.9999%+ uptime required.
Typical Budget: $50k +
I find most clients fall in the first 2 categories. Any idea where you fall for this project?
