Any good web programmer or web-programming company will provide you with an estimate first and then a contract.
The more detail you can provide about what you want, the more accurate the estimate will be.
Should you go big or small?
—–Working with a smaller outfit can help insure you get EXACTLY what you want.

How can you know if a particular person or company will do a good job for you? LOOK AT THE PORTFOLIO! If you don’t like what you see, then you’re off to find someone else.
