About Pricing Policy
We typically work on a retainer basis. We bill either at a fixed cost or an hourly rate depending on the project and how much time the work ‘should’ take an experienced professional to do, or less, never more. This means that we do not get paid to ‘learn’ unless clearly stated and agreed to up-front. That’s the exception to our work and not the rule. Most importantly, there are no hidden costs or expenses, and we offer a Free Consultation on our projects.
Company checks, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, and ACH payments are all acceptable forms of payment.
