Retainer Packages

Are you having trouble maintaining your website or graphic design needs at the pace that your business is growing?

Do you constantly have creative ideas running through your mind, but seem to get extremely overwhelmed at the thought of trying to piece it all together?  

Are You constantly taking new pictures of clients or products, have new Videos or want to consistently be "Out with the old and in with the new"?

With our Retainer Packages, your business is backed by "us" your very own “in-house” design team, giving you the opportunity to take action and implement all those big ideas you are bursting to act upon, and ultimately, grow your business. Consistency in your brand will help you stand out from the rest, and as a small business owner sometimes you don’t always have the time and resources to keep your marketing efforts looking A+!

 

 Our goal is to always professionally showcase your God-given gift so that you can stylishly appeal to potential customers, easily attract more clients and ultimately maximize your profits. We believe that building a lasting professional relationship with our clients is the ultimate way to be a blessing to others and do what we love which is serving you! 

Do You Need Peace of Mind?

What is a Retainer Service?

 

A retainer service is the perfect monthly solution to have a go-to designer help you maintain consistency with your brand and your message. It is paid up front each month before work is ordered…which gives you the peace of mind knowing that you will receive a pre-established amount of work and updates each month, without having to worry about "what's in queue" ahead of you! You come first!

How Does it Work?

 

Based on the retainer package you select, we will block out our schedule with the appropriate amount of hours each month and plan our workload accordingly. By securing a retainer package, you are guaranteed first priority when scheduling projects. It is perfect for those who know they will need website maintenance or design services throughout the month and want to reserve our “creative design expertise and time.”

The Perks of Being a Retainer Client...

  • Extremely fast turn-around for routine tasks- such as updating/changing website images,  updating website embedded links with pop-ups and editing new versions of an existing graphic design. We reserve your retainer time exclusively for you, so even if you have rush work or an unplanned need, we can respond to your needs with urgency.

  • Plan your project deadlines with peace of mind- You are our first priority! Since you are paying in advance, a block of time is already allocated to you each month. You can set deadlines with peace of mind that your project will be complete before they hit. Your projects are booked into our schedule and calendar with top priority over non-retainer clients. 

  • Savings & Discounts- mind-blowing discounts up to 30% off 

  • Brand consistency across all of your projects- use your unique branded typography and color palettes to keep a neat and professional appeal to all projects. 

  • On-Call for Emergency Issues- not just for emergencies, but we will schedule telephone calls per month to review your project load. 

  • Professional Designs- no need to worry about designing your own projects or learning photoshop – leave all the work to us! 

  • Easy Access Client Portals- receive monthly reports of time used and also track activity in a user friendly interface where file sharing is safe and convenient.

Retainer Details

Those hours each week will be billed at the standard hourly rate of $60 per hour.

  • Unused hours expire at the end of each week. This is to ensure that we can allocate time for your projects each week and plan our workload accordingly.
