Available Packages

 

I will work with your organization to provide excellent services at a reasonable cost. Depending upon the scope of work and your needs, fees are usually structured in one of the following four ways:

 

Hourly 
This is available for short-term or long-term work. Invoices will be sent every two weeks for large projects and once per month for small projects, with payment due when the invoice is presented

 

Project 
This is also available for short-term or long-term work. The specific fee is determined by the scope of work and the length of the project. Usually, one-half the fee is payable upon signing the contract and the balance is due within 15 days of completion of the work.

 

Retainer 
This is best-suited for on-going work, although no minimum time period is required. A range of hours per month is agreed to, and the fee is paid on a monthly basis. Flexibility and cost savings are the primary benefits of such an arrangement.

 

Pay for Access

At the start of the agreement, I will visit the business (if it is a new client) and spend a morning getting to know the business. The client can then call or send a mail at any time to seek advice on any subject related to their business. This involves the client paying a monthly retainer for a minimum 6 months.
