Your budgetary reality is the first consideration. 

I use a sliding scale to determine my cost for any potential engagement, and I take into account nonprofit status, volume of work, duration, and more. 


As I've noted, I'm a former teacher. I insist that growth — yours as much as mine — is life. I not only want you satisfied, I want your business to see real, sustained benefit from my contributions. And, when a job is done, it's done. You won't experience me trying to upsell or extend unless we both feel there are more opportunities on which to capitalize.



Referral Bonus Program

Know someone who could use affordable, honest marketing support from a fellow business owner? If you refer them and they sign a contract for services, you get 5% of the total contract value paid to you up front, in cash. It's that simple! 


I take recommendations seriously and am willing to put real money on the table to make that clear.
