On our platform, there are frequent cases of AR jobs without specified budget -when clients list a project without mentioning how much money they have. And it has several reasons and also opportunities.
When the client specifies a budget, then it is easy for you to decide: either it suits us or it doesn’t suit us. Do we apply for it or not?
Have you ever wondered why a brand might not have a budget for its project? The main reason for this is that they don’t know how much your work is worth. Although augmented reality has been one of the fastest-growing industries for years, many companies are still far from creating campaigns and projects in this direction. Therefore, they have no experience and do not know how much it costs to create an augmented reality project. They don’t know that face filters are relatively cheap, while app-based AR is much more expensive.
How should we act?
The less certain the customer is, the more you can convince him about everything, including the project budget. It is not worth turning a blind eye to such projects. On the contrary, it is at this time that you should bring your professionalism to the client.
As you know, we have two options on our website: the client either has a concept idea and sends a detailed brief, or he doesn’t have an idea and requests a concept idea from the creators. In the first case, when the client has an idea of the concept and knows what he needs: the client is more certain about the directions and possibilities of augmented reality. In the second case, you should assume that the brand is even further away from augmented reality campaigns and has no experience in this direction at all. However, in both cases, the reference to the budget shows that they do not know the prices.
