My partner & I have been running our web design company for just under a year and we've been really lucky in getting a lot of interest from potential clients. Our problem is that they nearly always say things like, "we'd like a new website. It should be blue and green. How much will it be?" We're finding it very difficult to know how to respond to this type of request. Usually we try to get a meeting set up to try to wrestle a proper brief but often the response is, "well just give us an idea of cost and then we'll set up a meeting".

Does anyone else have this sort of problem? If so, how do you resolve it?

In the jungle of the senses...
