Retainer packages can be a cost effective way to keep a designer on call when you need web or print materials designed frequently. Current package sizes available from 4 hours, 10 hours, or up to 20 hours a month. Before making a commitment, we can discuss what your needs are each month and come up with a plan of action! What would you like to accomplish? What tasks are you currently struggling to keep up with? What kind of graphics or services do you currently need to help brand yourself more clearly? These are just some of the questions to think about.
Since a retainer package can be a big commitment for a small business or entrepreneur who has a limited budget, below are some of the benefits.
WHY CHOOSE A RETAINER PACKAGE?
No need to purchase the software or subscriptions required for programs such as Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, etc. if you don't want to! I will do the designing for you, and send you the print or website ready copies of all the designs. You also save on hardware and additional office space you would require for a fulltime employee. It's like having an in-house designer without having an "in house" designer.
Hiring for a set number of hours instead of paying project-to-project can help you save money in the long run! You will be charged at a group project rates instead of à la carte flat pricing. The more hours you commit to hiring for, the more money you save on services.
I have many years of experience that helps me be more efficient in creating new designs and creative in designing for your particular needs. I can also help troubleshoot issues you may be having with your existing designs.
Working with one person, you can trust that the work will be consistent in quality and tone. You won't have to worry about outsourcing your different needs to multiple people, and can depend on me to deliver your designs regularly and on time.
As your designer, I will be committed to you and will develop a workflow based on your needs. This means the work will be delivered back to you faster than from someone unfamiliar with you and your business! You will have a priority over other one-off customers and clients who have not been scheduled for your guaranteed time.
Every month you will know exactly how much you're spending, and will receive one invoice to cover that time. No need to worry about multiple invoices from multiple service providers, or having to add me to your regular payroll.
As I mentioned above, we can develop a service plan in advance so I know exactly what you need, when you need it, and how you need it. This simplifies communication, makes everything more efficient, and gives you peace of mind on what you are paying for.
