A retainer purchases monthly hours in advance in exchange for our lowest hourly fee. It guarantees a certain amount of our business management time during the course of the month as well as entitles the client to priority scheduling over any hourly based clients that we may have. Basically you as the client pre-pay us to have availability for all of your projects to be spread evenly throughout the calendar month. Retainer clients can think ahead as far as what their administrative needs might be and plan accordingly.
