The first thing we get asked by almost everyone is “what is your hourly rate”?

How important is it to your business to get the cheapest figure?  Will that figure add value to your business?  Is there actually a benefit by buying “cheap”?  and … more importantly … what is “cheap”!

We are all guilty of trying to get that price out there so that the snap judgement is made and it is all too often “oh that is too expensive”.

So ask yourself  … is it price, quality, person, skills, experience, value or anything else you are really asking by saying “what is your hourly rate?”.  Why don’t you try and describe your price to this business and provide the value to my business by my business asking you “what is your price?”

With certainty of cost and choice of service this business can offer you a price tailored to YOUR requirements.  What do you need to cover to add value to your business?  The menu options below can be tailored for your business needs and not another business needs so choose what you feel would benefit your business and contact us to discuss your unique pricing option.  You are no longer paying for what you do not know but you have a certainty of tasks done and costs involved.

This is a unique approach … but we ARE UNIQUE! And we do add value to your business by being a vital part of your team.  Too good to be true … have a look at what our client’s say …
