- I will need a 50 percent deposit for modest projects or a single upfront payment for all big projects before I can launch your project. In my schedule, upfront payment reserves a spot. Don’t strive to negotiate the price about this, please. It will decrease your chances of the contract being completed. My schedule is very busy and I need to be sure that my attention is given to clients who are serious about their projects.
- All projects come with a management fee of 10%. This covers voice and video phone calls, travel, emails, editing, research, and other tasks essential to meet the deadline. For smaller projects, this charge may be removed.
- If you have keywords, sentences, links or references in your article, blog post, email marketing, etc. Before I commence your project, please inform me.
- Please be aware of my office hours. I’m in the office from 8am-4pm Monday through Friday.
- Email me at any time to discuss your project.
- Before I start to work on your project, please be aware what you want and inform me. If you aren’t sure what you want, please inform me and I will draw up a plan that works for you and your organization. That being said, without a revision of our contract, I will not change direction in the middle of the project.
- I have a lot of clients, but I will create a spot for you. Please contact me during my office hours if you need help or have concerns. I will respond within 24 hours. I often respond in minutes, but that’s not realistically possible at times.
- You do not own copyright in compliance with copyright laws for any photos, illustrations, articles, etc. that I create unless I transfer my copyright to you in writing by contract.
These fees and policies are a key component to my client relationship. Only when you agree to these rates and policies, contact me please.
