How Can I Be of Help?

1-on-1 Consulting

Schedule an appointment by phone or Skype to go over your questions together. We can discuss any topic and utilize screen-sharing so that it's almost like we are sitting in the same room.

Cost: $85/hour
Project Maintenance

Get hands-on help throughout the development of your website project. You handle whatever you're comfortable with, and I will take care of the rest. Never underestimate the power of teamwork.

Cost: $85/hour
Complete Website Design

If you can't find time to design the website yourself, then I can do it for you and hand the files back to you for ongoing maintenance — unless you'd like me to do that, too.

Cost: Quoted by Project
SEO Implementation

Optimize your website to give it the best opportunity to rank well in online searches. I implement SEO strategies that create real, measurable results, often in a short amount of time.

Cost: $125/hour
Project Review

Have your website reviewed and proof-read before you publish. I will check every detail and page setting to make sure you haven't missed anything important before the website goes live.

Cost: $85/hour
Theme Modification

Have your RapidWeaver theme modified to look the way you want. I can customize a theme's HTML, CSS, images and Page Inspector Styles to accomplish all kinds of needs.

Cost: $85/hour

1-on-1 Consulting by Skype or Phone + Screen-Sharing

I enjoy this method of consulting because live interaction facilitates learning and the exchange of ideas. If you want to get things done and learn while you do them, then you might be interested in this consulting service. By utilizing screen-sharing, I can see what you are working on, or you can even watch me do some work with your project. Either way, the experience is almost as good as sitting down next to one another to work on your project.

1-on-1 Consulting is available by appointment at $85/hour, and a typical session lasts 1-2 hours, though it can vary based on your needs. I utilize Skype or the free Join.me service for screen-sharing. If you are not a Skype user, then a phone call and screen-sharing via Join.me works great. In that case, you will want to visit Join.me in advance to download the free application that will be used during our consultation.

Remote Project Management Services

This service is catered to those who want to temporarily (or even permanently) hand-off their project to move the progress forward. I am happy to assist with your project as much or as little as you may need. I can complete a project from start to finish, or come along at any point in-between. The project can be handed back over to you after my work is done, or I can hold on to it and assist with long-term maintenance as well.

The primary difference between this service and the One-on-One service is that I do this work remotely, apart from a scheduled consulting call, though a combination of both services is common. All manners of work is available under this service, from complete website development, to theme modification, project review and any other type of development work. With the exception of advanced SEO services, all work is billed at a rate of $85/hour, though a more advanced level of support is available at discounted rates.

Projects and associated files are typically shared via Dropbox. This makes it easy to exchange files back and forth without having to dig through email and worry about large attachments not going through. If you don’t already use Dropbox then you might benefit from my Dropbox Guide.

Frequently Asked Questions

When are you available for one-on-one consulting appointments?
Weekdays between 11am-5pm Central typically work best for me. I do not schedule calls during weekends, but I can be flexible with times during the week if necessary.
Where are you located and what time zone?
I am in Texas which is in the Central time zone. That’s 1 hour behind Eastern, and 2 ahead of Pacific. I work with many clients overseas as well, and a time difference of 6-8 hours is typical.
Can I schedule weekly consulting sessions?
Yes, I have clients who I meet with as often as 3 times per week. There is really no limit to the length or frequency of consulting appointments.
How do you bill?
For one-on-one consulting appointments, I bill following the appointment by sending a PDF invoice by email, with a link to a page on this website where payment can be submitted via PayPal or credit card.

Typical project management services are also billed following completion of the work. For larger projects that are quoted, I require a 50% deposit in advance, with the remaining balance due upon completion and delivery of the project.
What is your rate?
Nearly all of my services fall under the rate of $85/hour. The one exception is my advanced SEO service, which is billed at a rate of $125/hour.

A discounted hourly rate is offered with a Priority Support account.
What are advanced SEO services?
The advanced SEO service is a component of my project management service. It goes beyond the standard SEO work that is done during the development of a website project, and involves research, testing and the development of specific SEO strategies to improve a website’s chances of high placement in Google searches.
