When it comes to pricing, we keep our pencils sharp
Most clients prefer a mix of project-based and retained services. For retained services, we use a lower blended rate of $100 to $125 per hour depending on the nature of the work. We also cap the monthly service fee so clients can budget accordingly. Monthly service fee is recommended for an ongoing development services such as Web Sites, Interactive catalogs or Multimedia-mix projects.
Fixed (not-to-exceed) pricing are more suitable for deliverables such as graphic packaging or label designs. Buy-outs such as commercial printing and Personalized URL marketing campaigns are estimated and billed with a 20% commission included.
The estimate of costs for our FuturSuitetm of products such as FuturSitetm, FuturPublishtm, FuturVideotm and FuturSearchtm are typically determined by adding the costs for customization and any content development requested by clients and, if appropriate, the volume of reproductions to the respective product’s setup fees.
We feel that “no surprises” is the only way to retain a happy client. Budgets need to be developed and managed with an understanding that priorities change. Open communication and transparency is the best way to get most value out of a limited budget.
Most creative work (even for retained clients) is handled on a project basis. For these projects, we estimate the number of hours we anticipate and live within the budget. If the client has approved a specific amount, it will never be more without their prior authorization. Material changes in the scope with determine when we will to revise the budget. The current rates we use in estimating projects are as follows:
