FAQ

Yes. I launch new websites often. I can help you define the scope of work and figure out the best technology stack to use. If all you need is a simple site, I can knock it out real quick for you. For more advanced sites, we would find and hire a team or if it saves you money, my team would do it.

Yes. I can help refine ideas, then scope the work, and can help solicit developers to bid. Having a requirements document ahead of asking others to give you pricing will save you time and money, and help ensure there are minimal surprises.

No, but maybe yes. Let me explain: I recommend keeping your existing team at least at first. Part of the value I offer is to help ensure you’re getting a good service at a fair price from any provider. If you have a team doing development, design, SEO, or Marketing – it’s often best to keep them around. Then, as I get to see what work they are doing for you, I will make recommendations on how you can best maximize value.

On our call, we talk specifically about your needs, but in general, you can tiptoe into a relationship with me allocating 60 minutes at a time, or you can allocate up to 8 hours a month. Most clients end up starting with 4-8 hours, and then we handle a bunch of little tasks month one and two, then drop to 1-4 hours a month.

No, once we have a relationship, I’ll be here to help now and in the future. No ongoing commitment is needed. I have clients that have been with me for 10+ years straight, month after month. I also have clients who have been with 10+ years and skip months or even years in between needing me. I am driven by a primary goal of delivering you value. If I keep providing you value each month, keep me around. If I can’t squeeze any more value out, pause me. It’s not hard. There are no contracts you sign, I sign an NDA and Statement of work for you, and we start working. Then stop whenever you want.

  1. I always put your interest first 
  2. I work by the minute, with time reports that show exactly what I did down to the second.
  3. I have more experience across more disciplines than anyone you’re ever meet.

I am a remote worker, I work from my office. Currently in Miami Florida. I spend about 90% of my time working remotely. For larger projects, or at key points in the project lifecycle, I can allocate time and schedule in office meetings.

Clients allocate between 1-8 slots per month, I have 100 slots available each month. As of 2019 Quarter 1 i have 22 slots open in the coming months.

Everyday a similar routine, whereby the first half of the day is mostly strategy and the second half mostly management. Different tasks and priories each day, based on project timelines and needs. Sometimes there is an emergency that requires my attention, often its just follow through on effort on schedule. Remote meetings, phone calls.

I often do find myself performing tasks such as

  1. Writing Emails
  2. Participating in a Meeting
  3. Having a phone call with a client or member of their staff
  4. Checking on Google Adwords
  5. Learning a new skill
  6. Adding a tracking code to a website
  7. Writing Code or talking to developers about their progress
  8. Designing a new graphic or talking to designers about their progress
  9. Researching a new online tool for productivity
  10. Managing a codebase in a git repository
  11. Reviewing user session info for clues about user experience enhancements
  12. Editing domain/DNS Info on a registrar
  13. Paying bills
  14. Generating client reporting
  15. Reviewing Goals
  16. Testing Systems for uptime

I like the number 1 and it’s easy to remember. Also:

My most productive time of the day is after waking up. To avoid disruptions so I can produce for myself and my clients, I generally do not take calls or schedule meetings in the AM.
Some actions, are best left for late night. Which means I am often up and working late, and by consequence, on some days I might need to be up late- so for maximum flexibly, I avoid early AM meetings so I can sleep in if I was up late the previous night.
Not all clients are on the east coast.

You might need 40 hours a week from someone, if so this service is not for you. Have an initial meeting with me, and I can help you figure out how much time you might need from someone like me, regardless if it’s me or not.[

A day or a decade, or more. No contracts. I’ll be here for you now, and in the future. You can choose to keep me around long term, or pause me at any time. Add minutes to your account as needed. Flex Minutes do not expire.
