How does our pricing work?
As of February 2019, our standard hourly rate is $65, with rush orders billed at $90/hour. The standard rate applies to the vast majority of our hourly work and guides our estimates and fixed prices.
A quote is essentially the estimated number of hours it would take for us to complete a project, multiplied by our hourly rate, plus any direct expenses. It is also a kind of guarantee: if we exceed the estimate, the hours after are charged at a reduced rate of $35 per hour. It is also a guarantee for us. We ask for 40% of the price up front, with the rest due at completion. This limits risk for both our customers and ourselves.
Monthly costs apply primarily to hosting and maintenance tasks, and represent a combination of our direct costs (the hardware and energy to run a website) and a commitment to maintenance work.
