I am a WordPress developer partnered with Keri Marion of Keri Marion Design and based in Providence, RI. I love working with WordPress. In addition to my clients’ and my own WordPress projects, I am also a moderator of r/WordPress , r/WordPressPlugins, and r/WordPress_Themes on reddit.com.
All quotes for my services are based on my hourly rate. As of September 1, 2015 the rates for development work are as follows:
$85 per hour | $50 per half hour | $30 per 15m (minimum)
Minimums are strictly enforced as to allow maximum efficiency on both our parts. I don’t want to charge you a minimum for five minutes of work, so please gather your materials ahead of time and provide me with enough material to satisfy the minimum. Often times I will prepare the items I need from you in advance.
Requests with less than 7 day deadline will be charged at a rate of $100/hr with a 1 hour minimum.
When I am pressed to take care of one client, it could potentially obstruct another client’s time and therefore puts both other clients and me in an unfair position. With that said, often times I can take care of things within a 2-3 day time frame – sometimes even faster – so all I ask is for you to be organized with your deadlines to ensure the proper flow of information for everyone. This “rush rate” must be implemented to prevent overlaps and allow the time for everything to be prepared properly, avoiding mistakes and encouraging maximum efficiency.
I will occasionally accept bartered goods or services against my development rate. I cannot always accept your bartered offer, so please be prepared to pay the full rate before contacting me to negotiate a barter. I cannot barter against Third Party Services
For new clients, I require a 30% or $300 deposit, whichever is higher, to start any job that exceeds $500. Jobs that are less than $500 will require a 50% deposit. Deposits are non-refundable; however, the full amount will be applied to your final bill.
As noted before, all work should be given with a one-week minimum deadline. Of course, not everything can be achieved in a one-week period and while I believe this is self-evident, I understand the necessity to bring the issue up. One week is the minimum amount of time needed, not the maximum. I will do my best to ensure a timely manifestation of your needs. The best way to ensure this is to make sure you have some of your content together and solid ideas about what you want to have done. I am not a mind-reader, you should have an idea of what you want the site to project and what kinds of content you want displayed before you contact me. It doesn’t need to be concrete, but it should be considered . It saves us all time & money.
Please note: these rates are separate from development rates and are subject to change without notice – please use these figures only as a guideline. Your quote will give you a more specific figure.
- Server only $80/yr.
- URL $20/yr each.
- You may have as many URLs as you like point to your site, but after five, it is $20 for each additional block of five.
- Additional Bandwidth, if needed, $10 per Gigabyte.
