Hire Us For Your Small Projects!

Maybe you don’t have a big project right now. That’s okay, we’re still here to help with your strategic planning, web development, and design. Get in touch before purchasing time so we can make sure we’re a good fit and that we have availability within your timeframe. We’ll also be able to provide you an estimate so you know exactly what to expect.

hourly service options

Websites, marketing campaigns, and some design projects are handled on a flat-rate project basis. But if you simply need some hourly services, you can find what you need here.

Frequently Asked Questions
l
How is billing incremented?
We bill in 15-minute increments for hourly work.
What is considered billable?
We do not bill for time spent on administrative or billing activities related to your account. All project work and time spent communicating by phone or email is considered billable work.
How long will it take for you to handle my tasks?
For hourly work, we will fit you into the next available time slot, usually within a couple days to a week for smaller tasks lasting a few hours or less.

Emergency tasks, billed at the emergency dev rate, are given our highest priority. Emergency items will, in most cases, be started almost immediately if the request is received during normal business hours. We’ll be able to give you a firm “start by” date/time upon your request.

When do I need to pay for hourly services?

We require a deposit of 5 hours worth of billing before starting work on your hourly tasks:

  • Web Development: $600
  • Emergency Development: $1200
  • Marketing Consulting: $1200
  • Design Services: $600

These amounts will be applied to your project as they are used. When time runs out, we will notify you and begin adding hours to your invoice. Invoices for all unbilled work are generated on the 1st and 15th of every month or at the completion of your project, whichever comes first. Projects requiring us to bill more than 20 hours per week will require an additional deposit.

I have a large website or Ecommerce project, how's that work?

We love sinking our teeth into big projects! To get started, we need to gain a thorough understanding of the scope. We’ll want to know your goals, expectations, and timelines before we can provide a price quote. To do that, we need to hold a discovery meeting and then produce a project discovery document where we outline what it is you want and how we plan to provide it. Only then can we get you an accurate flat rate price.

This process takes a lot of time! So, we do need to collect a $500 upfront payment, which will be fully applied towards the project, should you choose to move forward.

P.S. The $500 upfront payment to complete the discovery process and provide a project quote does not even cover our costs. It is meant to ensure we only go through this process with clients who are truly ready to move forward with their project and to discourage “tire-kickers.” If for some reason you don’t feel like you got your money’s worth out of the process and the discovery document we provide to you, simply ask for a refund and it will be promptly provided.
