Are you a consulting agency? If you are not, how are you different?
Consulting agencies are expensive. If a small business were to go a consulting agency to find help, they would have to pay large service fees, sometimes upwards of 25 percent. Plus, it can take a long time to get the project started. Because we use technology, we can eliminate the overhead by not charging any fees to business’s, and projects can start in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
What will it cost me?
There is no set cost. As a small business, you decide how fast you want your work to be completed, while also deciding your budget for the project.
