As my client, you now have retained a virtual in-house Technical and Creative Department. For your understanding, prioritized service time is based on our retainer level agreements. (Full paying clients are given the highest level of priority, higher retainer percentages received will be ranked accordingly, retainers for monthly service are ranked by deposit amounts when it comes to project prioritization). I do have expedited rates that are discussed at the time it may be required or necessary for critical projects or decreasing time in any deadline schedule.
My Standard Agreement Length is 3 Months ~ 10% additional hours free
6 Months ~ 15% additional hours free
*Unused hours will be handled as follows:
1. Unused hours in a month will be rolled over to the next month.
2. If you haven’t used all the hours during the length of your agreement, the remaining hours will continue to stand for a year following your agreement start date.
Choose the number of hours wanted and the length of the agreement to pay in the first month. Remaining hours will be invoiced in 30 days increments.
If your project requires more hours in a given month, the initial discounted hourly rate will apply to the additional required hours.
After receipt of payment, you will be sent your digital project agreement to sign. Monthly Retainer Agreement (Example).
