In the second example, the website is an artwork first and later a presentation. If you want a masterpiece of painting, & you can pay in lacs you can get a custom-made painting, a masterpiece.
After you bargain, the artist spends less time creating this masterpiece. The artwork has no measurement, similarly, a website has no fixed cost.
Website design work has no limits, as the work size increases the cost of the website. If you bargain too much then the quality can get impacted. To be straight at this point, nobody can work for the whole month for Rupees 4000 (example & random amount.)
Every website has different properties and different work. You should not expect your website designers to quote a price without telling them the exact work. website designing projects are always SOW-based.
So if you ask your website designer “What is the cost of a website ” then this will not be technically right. As a result, you can’t get a website that is exactly in your mind. Some day, the situation may become like I want this & the designer gave me something else.
To prevent this, we suggest always asking SOW first. Once the work site is clear, then the website quote will match it & you will never be in any complicated situation. Nobody works underpriced.
