A STEP BY STEP PROCESS OF COLLABORATION...
I have found that the system outlined below works out great!
It will require a lot of back and forth communication and you'll have to make a lot of decisions along the way, but your great new project will move forward quickly and efficiently.
Each job begins with a free consultation. You will communicate the specific needs of your project including timeline & budget. I might ask you some clarifying questions. This can all be done via email or phone.
I will reply with a quote and completion timeline. I charge $65 per hour or a negotiated flat rate. When you agree to the quote, I will draw up our contract.
Once our contract is signed, I will give you specific instructions on preparing any files or information we may need.
We will be using online tools such as Skype and screen-sharing to collaborate in real time. We will also use Google Docs and Dropbox to share files. When building websites we will use Wix.
I will guide you through the process of bringing your project to life & we will make it look amazing. The key will be timely communication. I like to give and receive replies within a 24 hour window.
Once the project is completed and you have approved it, I will send you an invoice. Payment is due upon delivery of receipt for jobs of $500 or less. Projects of $500 or more will require a down payment of 50%. The balance will be due upon receipt after the final approval.
All completed work will be released to you once payment in full is received. For graphic design, you will receive files through a dropbox.com link, or if the size permits, through email. For websites, I will send you a transfer of ownership to your wix.com site via email.
