We get that question a lot, too. Our typical answer is, "That depends on what kind of solution you're looking for." Every client is different, so every proposal we put together is different. It all boils down to time, scope and budget. There's no easy answer to the question, but for the sake of helping you make a decision, we can safely say that you can access the talent of an entire marketing department for equal or less than the cost of one experienced marketing professional.

Do you prefer hourly rates, a monthly retainer, or a half-now half-later project fee?

What's your deadline?

How much do you need?

Do you know what you can afford to spend for the project?

Are there ongoing services we'll perform?
