I’m sure y’all have heard the saying “you get what you pay for”
When it comes to service providers, I do believe this to be very true… designers, photographers, wedding planners, coaches, etc. base their pricing off so any factors, one including experience & expertise. A designer that is just starting out is going to be on a completely different price spectrum then a designer that has been at this for years.
I think the choice between how much someone spends on a professional all boils down to their wants, needs, how much value they see in the service, and if they and the service provider are a match in terms of style, vibe, beliefs, etc.
For example, if you don’t see the value in a professional brand and website — you are never going to pay someone hundreds to thousands of dollars, no matter how much money you have to spend in your business — and guess what, that is totally OKAY! So my tip for you is to never do something that doesn’t feel right for your business just because you ‘think’ it’s what you are supposed to do.
Off the same example, if you DO see the value in a professional brand and website, the choice between designers should have little to do with price. The most expensive designer in the world may not deliver what you were hoping for simply because you two didn’t see eye to eye. The designer that is a little less money, isn’t going to deliver you shitty work, if you two totally click & hit it off.
Basically what I’m saying is to do your research before hiring someone. Stalk their work, digest all their content, shop around until you find someone that truly resonates with you. The investment you make is totally up to you and it should be based it off of the work & feeling you get from these professionals, rather than the price tag.
If there is a designer, photographer, coach that you are DYING to work with but they are a little out of your budget right now…SAVE UP! Put money away each month until you can go all in. Whether the investment is $500 or $5000 its still an investment and you want to be happy with it and have it be the best choice for the future of your business.
