Cost Your cost is determined by the amount of time we require to complete your project. We apply a fee rate (or combination of fee rates) according to the level of service you need and multiply the rate(s) by the time applied. Service tiers range from the most costly (consulting and creative) down to the least costly (data entry and proofreading). Our intention is to avoid charging a higher rate than is competitive for the task involved.
We adjust your services to meet your budget and needs. For example, we may prepare a simple resume within an initial worksession for a relatively low cost. In another case we may complete a resume following the initial worksession, which results in a higher cost because we use additional time to fully develop and prepare the new version. We divide large projects into phases with milestone reviews, which enable re-assessing priorities and budgets. In general, we work with you to develop the outcome you need within the budget you establish.
How to Begin Working With Us Your phone call or email initiates the process. We work by appointment. A next step is usually to schedule a worksession where we review your requirements and provide strategic input, along with suggestions about alternative approaches and outcomes. A full and candid review results in mutual understanding of the scope of work, your priorities, and next steps.
