Ordering a la carte work
To minimize the costs to you, we have all clients fund a webmaster account with a retainer. As services are requested, they are drawn of the retainer. Periodic statements show the opening balance, service requests, and remaining balance. The account is topped up by the client as required.
Administration time can often exceed the actual time spent on client jobs. So not having to invoice for every little thing significantly reduces our administration costs, and those savings are forwarded to you.
Our standard hourly rate is $120, with a minimum Webmaster Fund load of $300 in credits. But our hourly rate is only $70/hr with the purchase of $1,000 in credits, $80/hr with the purchase of $750 in credits, and $90/hr with the purchase of $500 in credits.
Note: For clients on one of our monthly content marketing or copywriting retainer plans, monthly file system and database backups, software updates, and any required CSS (Cascaded Style Sheet) code revisions following an update are included as a free value added bonus.
Please follow your webmaster fund top-up with an email of explanation of the services you need, to [email protected], if prior arrangements have not been made.
