  • Basically, anytime we have to do something other than answer an email!
  • Anything! Just ask.

What services are not included?

A Creative Block does not cover expenses like the cost of new plugins, stock photography licensing, copywriting, and subcontractor fees. We will consult with you before beginning work to identify any fees or costs that may be billed in addition to your hours.

Creative Block packages do not include services covered by our TLC Security and Software Maintenance plans. They are mutually exclusive plans.

Here’s what our creative request process looks like:

Start by signing up and pre-paying for a block of hours which earns you the privilege of assigning tasks in Basemap, knowing that we will commence working on the task within 14 days:

  • You email us or add your request directly to our Basecamp project management system
  • Your request will be sub-divided into to-do tasks and added to the Basecamp project
  • We ask for clarification and confirmation of priority via Basecamp
  • We notify you of an estimate of time-frame, as well as when we are scheduled to take care of it

We allot specific days throughout each month just for “Creative Block” client projects. Hours are allocated on a first come first served basis, and additional hours will be scheduled based upon availability

  • When approved, we put it on the calendar, and set deadlines in Basecamp for you, the client, to send any deliverables such as content and images. (We don’t start if we don’t have deliverables)
  • We get to work!
  • I’ll warn you when your time is almost up and send you a new invoice when it is
  • When complete, we invoice for any additional hours

Wait! It’s Urgent!

If you require tasks to be completed urgently, sooner than 7 days out, we will collaborate with you to work out availability in our schedule to help you get the task accomplished a.s.a.p. As stated above, hours are allocated on a first come first served basis, and allocation of tasks will be scheduled based upon availability. You will be billed an “urgent care”  hourly rate of $175/hour. (If you have not used your hours for that month, we will deduct your “additional” hourly rate from the “urgent care” rate (eg. Option 1: $175/urgent hour minus $125/hour pre-paid = $50 additional for each hour of urgent work).

How is the work tracked?

All projects and their to-do tasks will be tracked in Basecamp. Work performed is itemized and will be viewable with your monthly invoice (via FreshBooks accounting software). Time will be tracked in 15 minute increments.

Leftovers? Overages?

You only have to commit to one month at a time. You can cancel or pause your monthly subscription at any time.

You can roll unused hours into the following month. Unused hours are forfeited at the end of the third month.

Hours in excess of the monthly agreement are billed separately at your special Creative Block rate.

We do our best to make sure you stay up-to-date on the status of your hours, but ultimately it’s your responsibility to make sure they’re used within the monthly time frame. Work performed is itemized and will be viewable with your monthly invoice (via FreshBooks accounting software).

What about payments?
