This is always the /burning question, isn't it?
I have worked diligently to put together affordable pricing options for you.
If you would like to hire me to work with you and pay as you go, my base is $30 per hour. See below for my new packages! Discounts included!
I have recently had to implement a 20 minute minimum. This means even if your project takes me less than 20 minutes, I have to charge a minimum of $10.
Otherwise, it's not even worth the time it takes me to prepare the invoice.
Let me just clarify, this is not per task. Many, many tasks take me less than 20 minutes to complete. This is per one-off project. If I'm invoicing you for less than 20 minutes in a one-week period, the minimum will be $10.
If you want to talk on the phone, it's twice my base. (I'm kidding, but I do not keep a business phone, so I don't speak with clients via telephone or video chat.) This is a personal boundary that I've had to set.
I prefer to communicate via email so I have a written record to refer back to as I'm working. This allows me to pay attention to the details and it's just how I work best. If that's not a dealbreaker for you, keep reading!
I try to work with most budgets. Shoot me an email and let's talk. I'll reply within 24 hours and this will open a line of communication so we can chat about your project. I have been known to work for a flat fee if that is more cost effective for my clients from time to time. Just to recap, here are my skills.
I've put together a few packages that include some decent discounts in an effort to be a more cost-effective solution and serve you better.
Interested in a custom package? I'd be happy to put one together for you if you're a weekly or monthly client! Shoot me an email and let's talk about it!
2-Hour Trial Package
Please read ALL of the information about any package you are considering purchasing. There are time limits and NO REFUNDS if you don't use your time in the allotted time frame or don't use all of your time.
If you have any questions or want to check my availability, email me.
I have a 2-hour trial package for
brand new clients anyone who wants 2 hours of my time. I'm extending this package to new clients as well as existing ones. Sometimes you just need 2 hours and that's all. Nothing more; nothing less.
It seems there's always an initial uncertainty about how long a project might take in the beginning when you don't know me, and I don't know you. Since I end up usually putting in an initial 2 hours just to feel everything out anyway, I thought I'd make it a package and slap a discount on it.
You must use your 2 hours within 7 business days of purchase. I have to set this limitation to prevent someone from hiring me for 2 hours per year or something crazy like that.
You Save $10!
Do you just need 5 or 10 hours for your project?
Check in with me to make sure I'm available and then purchase one of these packages and I'll be available to you for the allotted time within a 7-day period.
After 7 days from the purchase time, your package expires, so be sure to use all of your time! Since I've reserved this time out of the week for your project, there will be no refunds or extensions.
These packages are great for projects like:

I can set you up for a recurring invoice on these packages so your time is reserved automatically.

After 30 days from the purchase time, your package expires, so be sure to use all of your time! I have to set this limitation to prevent someone from purchasing a monthly package and attempting to use it say over a year's time.
Since I've reserved this time out of the month for your project, there will be no refunds or extensions.
Slots are extremely limited, so reserve your time today!
You save $20!
You save $30!

Things to Consider
If my rates seem a bit pricey to you, I hope you will consider that I'm an independent contractor. That means that I'm responsible for paying my own taxes (they aren't automatically taken out of my check). I'm also responsible for any additional benefits like savings for retirement or medical insurance which is more expensive as an individual rather than being part of a company.
These are important things to consider if you are thinking about working from home. Once you get things figured out, it's not so bad and just as routine as a regular job, but can be a challenge at first.
My Personal Guarantee
I make it my business to WOW my clients if you will. It is always my intention to over-deliver on my work. My personal guarantee to you is to do a thorough job on your project always being mindful of your time and money.
Accepted Payment Options
Most of my clients use PayPal to pay me via an invoice that I send out at the end of each week for the work completed. PayPal allows payment using your PayPal balance or the 4 major credit and debit cards.
I can also accept Stripe payments.
If you need to make another arrangement, email me.
