When to consider a creative retainer?
• If you started out strong but your brand message is now getting lost in the crowd.
• If you’re a solopreneur out there on social media and want to look more professional than your cookie many cutter competitors.
• If you have multiple small projects, and want to eliminate the need to seek estimates, manage multiple contracts, and pay multiple invoices. A creative retainer can also stabilize your services budget.
• If your communication design needs vary throughout the year, arise unexpectedly, or you have ongoing needs for design services that don’t require having a designer on staff, a creative retainer might be the perfect solution for your business.
• If you know your going to need design services throughout the year and want to reserve a creative professional’s time.
• Confidence that a branding professional is creating your visuals and messaging—time after time.
• Brand consistency across all of your projects.
• Peace of mind – Confidence that project deadlines are met.
• No contract to sign for each individual project and no per project costs.
• You avoid the need to seek estimates and pay multiple invoices.
• Unlike creative retainer packages offered by others; Your unused hours NEVER EXPIRE. You NEVER have to forfeit any unused hours left at end of the month. You don’t have to commit to a 3, 6, or 12-month agreement. You don’t have to remember to pay a bill by the end of the month.
• You come first. As a retainer client, your projects receive first priority.
• Discounted design & service rates. Without a retainer, my normal hourly rate for creative strategic design starts at $150 per hour for all services.
• Less Paperwork – Eliminate the per-project agreements to sign and multiple invoices to track.
How will I receive an accounting of my hours?
At the end of each package, I prepare a detailed report that shows all of the hours which were dedicated to your project and completed tasks.
What if I need more hours of service but I have run out of hours in the package that I pre-purchased?
I understand that there may be times when an unexpected project may occur. When and if this happens I will honor your current retainer rate and create a separate invoice based on the number of additional hours you request.
*Limited to one extra project per retainer package.
Which package should I choose?
Every business is different and has different needs. We’ll work together to determine the package that will not only meet your needs but also give you the best return on your investment.
