So what’s all this going to cost?
I know you’re thinking, This all sounds wonderful, but what’s it going to set me back? There are three main ways that I price my services, depending on the type and frequency of support you’re looking for.
I charge an hourly rate of £25 – I track my time, round up or down to the nearest 15 minutes and send you a time report with your invoice so you can see a full breakdown of hours. Your initial one hour consultation is complimentary, and my minimum fee for any single job is £25.
If you know you’re likely to need me for a set amount of hours each month, a retainer is the best solution. We agree a minimum number of hours per month, billed monthly. You don’t have to worry about spiralling costs, and extra hours can always be added if needed (subject to my availability).
Sometimes it makes sense to set a fixed price for a one-off project, such as website SEO or building an elearning course. An initial quote is given based on the scope of the project, though this can be subject to revision if the parameters of the project later change. For example, I charge £10 per thousand words for academic proofreading, and website SEO starts at £75 for an initial report and advice.
