I'm a web developer and I'm about to start my web design agency with a couple of friends, I've asked for advice on how to get started and also looked online on how to start a business.
I've seen this question a couple of times in different tutorials or guides in which you ask your client: "What is your budget for this project?". Is it me, or this might come off a little sketchy?
Is this a normal question to ask my new clients? Or could this potentially ruin the deal for me?
I've been asked this before when looking for services/products and it always seems to me like wanting to know your budget just makes you vulnerable to higher prices. And certainly I wouldn't want my clients to feel that way.
