At the beginning of a project, I invoice 50% and the remaining 50% at the end of a project.

The rate will be fixed. Meaning that sometimes I work a bit more, and sometimes I might work a bit less. And that should be fine. I will track hours for myself, but the deliverable is what I use as a guide to make sure we don't plan in too much.

Hourly: I charge $105 an hour if you hire me based on the amount of hours I work.

Getting started

Make it simple and clear what's required from your potential to start the project. Your potential client will almost certainly have additional questions and comments. So make sure to provide your contact informations again to clear their doubts when needed.

If you agree to work with me, these are the next steps:

  1. Let me know which plan suits you best
  2. I make a service level agreement with a high level outline of how we work together, and who is responsible for what, which you need to sign.
  3. I send an invoice for the first 50% of the project.
  4. After you've paid we setup a call to discuss the project strategy.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm sure you have some. I am available by email at raffaelevitalebusiness@gmail.com. Here are my availabilities:
