Wait, we barely know each other ... and what's this gonna cost me?
Client: “How much will this cost me?”
Big consultant: *sucks through teeth, taking a deep breath* “Well that depends …” *while not giving any actual details*
The best way to figure out if this is gonna be a good match is doing something small together. Our get to know you projects tend to be pretty short, something where we can add value, show you how good we are and make it worth our while for a little bit of cash.
For us, this normally costs around $20-40k for a small but meaty project. And because we’re hungry, you get the best bang for your buck, we tend to under promise and over deliver.
