Hourly rates generally start at $40 per hour with a minimum of 5.0 hours.  Initial consults are free.  If you want a job flat-bid, I am able to do this.  Generally, I give an estimate on the expected time to do a project when asked.

On media and printing, I prefer to let the clients pay for their own, rather than commissioned sales.  I keep my focus on quality work and excellent media selection this way.  I am a seasoned print outsourcer and media negotiator.

Web building will generally involve starting a test site that is password-protected, and when complete, the site is made live.  People think of a website as a visual internet tool, however, I look at it as a ‘published book’ about your company.  Well-written, relevant content is vital, as are external links and references for effective SEO.

Copywriting is another service I provide, as well as name generation and some intellectual property consulting.  I regularly write grants at a high level for some technical teams.  For a consultation, please email me at jenniepin62@gmail.com.

I’m going to hit you with a blowtorch that is truly my best-kept secret for effective creative work.  The mojo, the Kwan, or where the rubber meets the road is the formula above:  where objective meets parameters, achieves the outcome, and ultimately...
