First, we won’t know exactly what you want us to write until we meet with you. That also means we cannot quote exact prices for a project before we meet. Most projects are priced as a complete job, not by the hour.
Our goal is always to provide VALUE to your company and increase your revenue stream. There are multiple approaches to reach that goal. It all starts with you.
Process: Contact us and we’ll schedule a face-to-face discovery session. We’ll submit some questions to you ahead of time so you know the direction of our discussion. Your answers to these questions during our session will help us understand and establish your specific project parameters. We will also need any relevant project materials or company background materials you have already created at this time. This will give us appropriate information to prevent “reinventing the wheel”. Once we mutually decide to proceed, you will receive a quote and a bid letter/contract within 48 hours. Sign the document, return a copy with a 50% deposit, and we’ll schedule your work. Although additional meetings can be arranged at the client’s request, further consultation can be conducted via phone or email.
Quotes and Bid Letters/Contracts: Once we have had the discovery session and decide to work together, a quote for the work and a bid letter/contract will be written. A bid letter may substitute for a full contract on basic jobs but will contain all of the same information in abbreviated form. The documents will set forth the scope of the work to be done, the time frame for the work completion, the payment terms, and the responsibilities of both parties. All documents include a confidentiality clause to protect your information. All quotes are for English-language written content (copy) only. No work will be started without a signed bid letter/contract.
Revisions: A price quote will always include up to TWO revisions within 30 days of your receipt of your first draft. Please be aware that the initial draft you receive is your first draft. The copy has already been revised multiple times in several formats before sending it on for your approval. This process means that you could see up to three complete submissions of your copy before your final approval. This process ensures that you are completely satisfied with your materials. Further revisions can be discussed and will incur an additional fee.
Terms: Most projects are quoted as a complete job, not by the hour, so you know the full investment before we start. In order to get started on a project (after a quote has been issued), a bid letter/contract must be signed by both parties and a 50% non-refundable deposit received. At that point, the project is “in the pipeline” and scheduled for completion. If you decide to stop the project before the first draft is submitted to you, the deposit is retained as an early termination fee.
Project Invoicing: A 50% nonrefundable deposit is required with the signed agreement document. A final invoice of the remaining 50% will be included with the final project draft, payable on a term 30 days basis. Late payments will incur a monthly service fee equal to $50 or 10% of the outstanding balance, whichever is greater.
