  1. By Project - Most services can be contracted as either hourly or are project based. We work with you to find the best strategy for you and negotiate a fair price.
  2. On Retainer - We have two ways to 'pay as you go'.
    1. The first is our tech support hotline where you can ask us anything and we will either give you the answer on the spot OR we will give you an estimate of how much research would be needed to get to the answer. Pricing in this format is $100 per month plus only $100 per hour
    2. The second is a 10 hour retainer of services you buy all up front and then use the time as needed, on demand, and real time. A 10 hour block is $1250.
