Retainers

hiremetowriteWhy pay for a full time copywriter or digital manager when you’re not sure if it will really add the value? try and buy!

Retainers help businesses add high quality in-house performance and commitment to production, but with flexibility and cost-savings within a client’s budget. Clients can try out new approaches, grabbing or reducing production and content as and when they need it. Project needs can really fluctuate depending on client accounts, so what a business needs right now might change in three weeks or months, so retainers are an ideal reliable and cost-effective solution without the long term commitment to a full-time employee.
Call Hannah to discuss on 07711 100226 or email.

How Much? Here’s an Example:
Cost: £10,000 per annum for 10 hours a week
Hourly rate:  £20.00 per hour
This includes office space and additional research time on certain projects.

What is a Content Retainer?
The client agrees a certain amount of hours and type of content to be delivered to meet their requirements, this secures a regular commitment and allows the company to save money on administration and office space, The client can then concentrate on getting the content they need when they need it.
Hannah will represent the company as an employee, attend meetings and be loyal and committed.
