Tailored pricing to suit your needs
We're happy to work in a way which suits your business, on either a project or retainer basis.
Retainers are available when booking a minimum of 2 days in advance. Perfect for businesses requiring regular support and giving you peace of mind that you have our time secured. A scope of work would be devised and agreed with all parties so there are clear deliverables for the month. Retainer packages must be paid in full before work commences and hours utilised within one calendar month of the agreed start date. Timesheets are sent on a monthly basis so you can see how the time has been spent on your business.
Sometimes it’s easier to set a fixed price for a particular project. Sharp Thinking
provides a full breakdown of all costs involved and provides monthly timesheets. Projects are normally invoiced 50% upfront and 50% upon completion.
