RETAINERS

for on-going monthly marketing needs 

Your personal

brand strategist

on stand by.

Ready to make some noise? With our retainer program, you have an entire design, development and creative studio on hand for priority hours each month without the pesky overhead costs of hiring an in-house team.

 

Save time associated with outsourcing on a project basis and secure help with all your marketing needs by building a long term relationship with professionals who care about your brand’s identity as much as you do. We’re committed to helping you make an impact. 

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Complete the Retainer Inquiry Form + Schedule a Consultation – We will discuss your projected design needs to learn all about your business and marketing goals. 

  2. Paperwork + First Payment – Once the service agreement is signed and the first retainer fee is received, we'll schedule an initial consultation call to discuss your project scope for the first month.

  3. Communication, Reminders + Reports – You will have access to a secure online portal to request work, review and download files, and communicate about your projects. In addition, you'll receive monthly reports to see how your hours were spent and reminders when you have time to use. 

  4. Before the Month Ends – We will schedule a call to review project priorities for the upcoming month. Payment for the month ahead will be due on the 1st of each month.

  5. Repeat – The process will repeat for the remainder of the program level selected.

  6. Re-Evaluate – At the end of the contract term, there will be an opportunity to review your program level and at that time we can determine if you want to adjust the number of hours reserved.
