Hourly Rate

Our current rate for hourly and additional projects.
N

For Maintenance Plan Clients

Our rate is currently $75/hr billed in 15min increments.

M

For Non-Plan Clients

Our rate is currently $95/hr billed in 15min increments.

Why the different rate? Because jumping into a site that has not been routinely updated, secured and maintained by us often leads to much more backend work even for fairly simple updates. It’s one of the main reasons we highly recommend joining our monthly plan. By trusting us to look after your site and keep it running smoothly month to month, we’re happy to offer a discounted rate on updates, revisions and additions.

While full projects are estimated at a fixed rate, we offer our hourly rate for things like quick website updates, one-off development additions and graphic design work for current and past clients. If you’re already a client, you know we work fast and always provide the most timely, efficient service. We get as many details we can up front then provide an estimate of hours before moving forward.

If you’re curious, our rate is still on the lower end of the scale compared to other web agencies and design shops with our level of expertise and customer care. (Most professional freelancers and design teams are charging anywhere between $55-$250/hr)

We intentionally keep this rate as low as we can for clients to be able to afford our hourly services when needed. Reach out with any questions or to set up a retainer of hours for some website updates!

Oh No!

A few months ago, I was messing with things on one of our websites when I got a glorious error message:

"Remote Gateway 502 on the D-server minus 000111110000 coding malfunction on the yadeeyadeeyada server of death...."

The page wouldn't load. I tried to refresh.  Still nothing. The internet was working just fine so I was scratching my head, trying to figure out what on earth the problem was. Our site assistant wrote me:  "Something's up with the site.  It's like the site's just GONE, annihilated, destroyed, wiped out, exterminated... or something." My pastor called and confirmed the worst.  The server we had had both of our websites on -- one with hundreds of hours of content -- had spontaneously gone dark.

The hosting company had simply quit the business.

Yeah. I posted a "Woe is us" message on Facebook so my friends could weep and wail with us (and send chocolate). Justin saw my post and immediately offered to help. And let me just tell you... When I thought we were toast and going to have to start from scratch with our sites,

Justin took over and recovered almost EVERYTHING.

He knew where these magical internet archives were online with little fairies that flutter around every night saving everything you ever put on your sites... and how to get content from the magical internet archives back on our sites where we all can appreciate that content a bit more.

Sometimes I'd be up at 1:00 a.m. seeing that he had just sent an email -- asking which pics I liked or how I wanted this or that. Yes, he was up working that late -- fixing all our problems. Making all our dreams come true.

The guy is a WORK HORSE.

He gets the job done, and he stays on task until it's done right. Not only did he recover both of our sites, but he's established a good backup program so we never. have. this. happen. again. #Genius

You should hire him.

and you should send chocolate. And probably like a Christmas bonus too. 'Nuff said.
