With so many projects going on at any given time I have found that the traditional office style meetings are ineffective at communicating and managing scope. It is impossible for me to track all the information for all the projects in your head. If the communication is written down, everyone has a reference of what was discussed so memory is not a factor. I have spent years refining this process and have come up with the following which has proven to be effective.
- Scope is handed off through annotated designs or wire frames.
- Communication is done almost exclusively through email and slack.
- Estimates are given only after the scope is digested by the developer.
- Meetings are used only when someone is having a hard time understanding something through text.
$60 per hour
I take time to build things like unit testing and continuous integration. I may only spend 50 hours building your app but I’m going to take another 10 to make sure it’s future proof. I also bill for meetings and scoping. In almost all cases, I will quote and invoice you a flat rate for the project.
I require 50% up front and the balance upon completion or before going live. Long term projects may be split into monthly billing depending on the size and length of the project. Any project under $500 will require full payment up front.
If you are a first time client, I will require a $500 minimum for the first project. If the project does not use the whole $500, the remaining will be credited toward your next project.
Emergency Rate: $100 per hour
If I am not currently working on a task/project for you and you need something immediately which causes me to delay or postpone previously schedule work for another client, the emergency rate will be in affect. This also applies to any work which is request to be completed before paying the down payment.
WordPress Site Hosting
$10 per month
Hosting includes a fully managed experience. I take care of setup, maintenance, and adjustments to hosting environment.
The rate is $10 a month for a basic traffic site of less than 1,000 unique visitors a month.
The rate is $20 a month for a standard traffic site of between 1,000 and 5,000 unique visitors a month.
If you are getting more then 5,000 unique visitors a month, we will have to look at something larger.
Git Repository Management
$5 a month
Fully managed Git repository. I take care of hosting, managements, upgrades etc. Optionally I will also setup deployments for this repository so you can push code to your site just by merging a branch.
$20 per year
I do offer the purchase, renewal, and management of domains. The rate per domain is $20 a year if the domain is paired with my hosting. If you are hosting elsewhere the rate is $50 a year.
$5 per email, per month
Emails hosted on your custom domain. Web access to your emails as well as support for all standard email clients and devices. Email client setup instructions provided.
Lamp Server Management
0-10 sites is $250 a month
10-50 sites is $500 a month
50+ sites, let’s talk
For those who want to offer hosting to their clients or have a lot of sites to host, I do offer server management. I take care of server setup and maintenance. I also handle the setup of any site accounts on the server. You are given full file and database access to the accounts on the server to setup and manage your sites at will. All server issues are included. All code related issues include light diagnostic but any repair requested is billed hourly.
