FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS A CREATIVE RETAINER?


A creative services retainer is a monthly fee paid up-front. The details and scope of work to be executed are clearly outlined within our agreement. This means you pay a monthly fee for a predetermined number of hours or a flat rate for our team to deliver a set amount of work each month. With an agreement for creative services, you’re basically “pre-ordering” the our time. Since the agreement’s purpose is to “retain” the creative professional, a monthly fee is paid up front before any work is ordered. Our team anticipates work coming from the client, and blocks out the appropriate amount of time to accommodate said work.




WHY INVEST IN A WEB DESIGNER ?


This isn't just an investment in a website! It's an investment in the future of your business. With a website that builds trust and credibility, clients will be banging down your door in no time. Can you design your own website? Absolutely! Contrary to beliefs, it's not easy and it's not free. In fact, it will likely take close to 100 hours of your time and at the end it's a chance that you won't be happy with it. You can even hire someone else for much cheaper! However any of those designers are simple that: designers. They're not building brands or bringing in depth knowledge of strategy, marketing, and web design all in one package to ensure the best results.




HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?


Remember brands aren't built overnight. Before we launch a date we will work to meticulously plan your site and create high-converting content. So, our timeline will depend on a few things; how far in advance you book, the scope of work, and how much new content needs to be created. To get the best results, we recommend booking your project at least 3-4 months before you want to launch your site. Here's how to get started:

  1. Book a consultation or Face-Face Meeting
  2. Pick a design start date and make an initial payment to secure your spot.




I'VE HAD BAD EXPERIENCES WITH DESIGNERS IN THE PAST. WHAT IF THIS DOESN'T WORK FOR ME?


Sending hugs! We've heard all the horror stories about designers and developers who ghosted, ran away with passwords, or build sites so confusing that their clients can barely use them. We value professionalism and communication. Throughout the whole process, we will communicate regular via email and/or phone. We are here as your partner and sounding board and we have zero interest in running away with your site. We want to make sure you have full control, including access to all tools and knowledge for making edits. Our clients not only leave with an amazing website but knowledge about different branding and marketing tools they can use in the future.
