More pieces of the puzzle.
Who do you work with?
I work primarily with business-to-business (B2B) technology companies. Why? I’ve got crazy good talent for being able to simplify the complex. Check out my bio page for more details.
How do you work?
First we have a phone conversation (free!) to help me learn about the problem(s) you want to solve, business goals, project needs and so on. This initial interaction can help us make a preliminary determination about whether what I do is what you need and if we like each other enough to work together.
To give you the most flexibility, I offer a couple different working arrangements:
- Project Fee — If the work required has defined boundaries and we can specify what the end deliverable looks like, you might want to consider working with me on a per project basis. I let you know up front how much the fee is to complete the project, and you avoid surprises when you get an invoice.
- Retainer — If you want more flexibility and need my expertise on an ongoing basis, consider a retainer arrangement where we agree upon a flat monthly fee based on your projected needs.
What do you charge?
A lot of factors go into developing a client proposal. I consider the type of work you need, how much research is expected, in-person/online/phone meeting requirements and much, much more. In other words, we need to have a discussion first. To be clear: You can find both cheaper and more expensive options for what I do. I believe, however, that my fees are quite fair, especially considering my extensive experience and commitment to work with you personally.
