One of the biggest mistake people make when building their first website is trying to do too much, then having an endless list of things you need to do and things you need to pay for.
There are three main things you need to do before starting your website project:
Write down how your website should help you, your business and your customers. Consider they way you want the website to function and how you want to present yourself online.
Gather all images and write the content that should be displayed on your website. This includes a description of the pages and links, what should be represented on each page, specific functionalities e.g. Shopping Cart, applications, informative content, booking, gallery etc. Also if you have the time, do a bit of research so some things the developer will discuss with wont sound unfamiliar.
In your budget you need to consider Your domain and hosting fees which are yearly charges and plan for them. Any plugins or modules or themes the developer may need to purchased to give your site the required look and or functionality, you may need a logo designed, the development fees, search engine optimization and maintenance services to help keep your site performing well while online.
