A retainer is a prepaid monthly amount which we draw from to cover your expenses. It is based on an estimate of how much work you will require on average on an ongoing monthly basis. We invoice at the beginning of the month and allocate the work to be performed based on the amount paid. We have several suggested retainer levels (ie. 2 hrs/month, 5 hrs/month, 10 hrs/month, etc.) and we offer a generous percentage discounts off of our standard hourly rates at the different levels.

  • Broad or unclear scope & services
  • Broad range of services
  • Longer timeline (typically 3+ months)
  • Ongoing needs
  • Needs prioritized over projects
  • Budgetary considerations

    • For small overages* (under 2 hours) we’ll keep them on account for a few months to see if they are cleared by future months that may require less time. If the amount carries over for 3 – 4 months, we’ll discuss options with you, which will include a one-time payment to clear the account or an increase to the monthly retainer.
    • For large overages (over 5 hours) we’ll discuss options with you at the end of the month, which again will include a one-time payment to clear the account or an increase to the monthly retainer.

    • If less work was performed in a given month, than is paid for in your plan (ie the plan allows for 10 hours/month, however only 8 were used), the excess funds shall remain on account to be applied to future updates.
    • All unused but paid for time will be carried over for up to a period of 3 months. *
    • * Every 3 – 6 months we shall re-evaluate the monthly amount together to determine if it still meets your maintenance requirements.

The turnaround time for website updates are typically 24 to 48 hours. Often the tasks are generally completed within three business days, same day if possible. For updates which are complex and requires more time and resources, a time and budget estimate may be provided.
