You're faced with a unique opportunity or challenge in your business, but you don't have the time, internal resources, or expertise to address it. What do you do? Consulting allows you to immediately expand your capabilities and team, so that you can tackle your most important projects. Think of it as a special task force created to zero in on a precise goal or outcome. There's only one problem. Historically, consulting hasn't been accessible to the types of companies that need it most - startups and small businesses. We decided to change that by creating a consulting offering that's both best-in-class and affordable. Now, it's possible to take advantage of all that consulting offers - expertise across industries, time-tested methodologies, and customized solutions - so that you can move your business forward exponentially. We offer a variety of pricing structures and options for consulting engagements.

Packages & Pricing

Flat Fee


Success Fee

Volume Pricing

Once the project parameters, scope, and outcomes have been defined, then a flat fee will be established. This gives the client certainty with respect to the total cost. This structure works best when the project can be clearly defined with little uncertainty and few unknowns.
In this unique structure the fee is based on a specified and pre-determined outcome for the project. Typically, the consultant is not paid unless the outcome is achieved, and then the payout is usually calculated as a percentage of a measurable end result. Success fee pricing shifts the risk onto the consultant, but with the client willing to share in the upside of the outcome. This format works best where both parties are willing to take on these roles, and where the parameters and goals can be clearly defined.
Volume pricing is available for clients with multiple projects or for those that wish to establish an ongoing relationship. For example, some clients know in advance that they will have a set amount of monthly or quarterly work or a certain number of projects per year that they wish to address. If you have similar needs, please inquire about volume pricing.
An hourly fee structure works best on projects where the client wants added flexibility to achieve the desired outcome. Larger projects, increased uncertainty, and more unknowns are scenarios where hourly fees make the most sense. This format can still be framed with an estimated total cost in order to allow the client to work within a budget.
Due to the highly customized nature of consulting projects, an individual price quote is necessary. Please click the link on this page to schedule a free consultation, or send us a message to describe your project in more detail.
