A La Carte Services

While we specialize in large, custom projects, we have seen a need for more routine monthly work and smaller, one-off projects. With that in mind, we are now offering a monthly service and a one-off project service (own Jeremy for a week)!


Monthly Partnership

If you’ve already launched a site, but you don’t have (or need) a full-time person of our experience on staff for either maintenance or more complex development, our monthly service may be right for you. For one set price, we’ll use our skills as consultants, developers, and designers to help you get to the next level, one step at a time.

“Jeremy is easy to work with, and I can always reach him to talk about our progress and new projects. Thanks again for all of your help!” Mike Jung II, Old World Stoneworks

How does it work?

Each month, we will do a consulting session with you over Skype or by phone to talk about ideas for the new month, progress on ongoing or completed tasks, and answer questions you may have. From that consulting session, we’ll create a brief written report and a list of tasks that we will work on for the month.

How many hours each month?

Instead of going by hours (or fractions of an hour), it’s simple: all the design or development tasks have to fit into one day with you as my sole focus. In one day, we could fix multiple pages on a website, debug an old problem, update a template, or work on a plugin. We will do whatever the highest priority items are after our consulting session, and we will do all of them that will fit into one day.

What is this best for?

What clients is this best for?

Does this mean I can hit you up with questions 24/7?

Of course, we’ll answer any reasonable emails and questions you have during the month, but this plan is more accessible and focused than higher-priced retainers or full-time staff because it concentrates all of the consulting and development down into distinct time blocks.

What if we need things that take more than a day to complete?

For development projects that will take more than a day, we have a couple options: spread the task over a few months so you get incremental improvements or talk about a larger project (either a full project proposal or buying Jeremy for a week). Depending on the task and your own priorities, this can be a pretty clear decision, and we will give you our best advice during our consulting time.

How much does it cost?

To keep everything simple, we have one price: $950 paid before our consulting session each month. For that price, you will get our experience helping you to decide what needs to be done on your site, how it prioritizes, and you’ll get a full day of our time to move you forward.

“I always felt like Jeremy was a good steward of the money we spent via retainer.” Walter Cox, Positive Life Radio

Let’s get started!

We currently have 4 slots available. If you’re interested in starting a monthly partnership or have questions, just let us know a little about you and we’ll be in touch to see if we’re a good fit for your needs!


Buy Jeremy for a Week

Do you have a small project that just needs to get finished? Have a backlog of little bugs just waiting for a developer? Or do you want a full week of consulting? Well, you can buy me (Jeremy) for one week.

What Does It Cover?

Any work you want me to do remotely. I can do consulting, design, or development or a mixture of all three. You have my time for one consecutive week, Monday-Friday, and you will be my only focus.

What can we do in a week?

We can’t create a website or app from scratch, but we can do a lot:

So, is this your weekly rate?

No. I (personally) don’t have a weekly rate, and Craft+Story does not traditionally price our projects by the week. This is a service specifically designed for one-off projects or training/consulting.

What about larger projects? Can we string a month’s worth of these together in a row?

For larger projects, I’d recommend you contact us and we can get together to talk about a custom, value-priced solution. For anything over a week, our standard process for large projects is a much better fit.

Is this deal always available?

No. We obviously need to schedule this at least a week in advance, and you may not be able to buy me for a week depending on the current workload. If you want to secure a week of Jeremy, you probably need to contact us sooner than later.

Is this one week on-site?

This is specifically designed as a remote service, and I’ve seen great success doing everything from development to staff training remotely. That being said, if you think you need some time on-site, don’t be afraid to reach out. It doesn’t hurt to ask, and we can normally work something out (especially if you’re in a non-Texas climate).

How much does it cost?

Once again, we kept it simple: $4,000 for the week paid when you reserve your week. Once reserved, we will keep your week free of any other client work or services, and your time will be “locked-in.”

Let’s get started!

We currently do have weeks available. If you’re interested in knowing when Jeremy is available for a week or have questions, just let us know a little about you and we’ll be in touch to see if we’re a good fit for your needs!


Bigger Projects

Have a bigger project like a relaunch or new website or product? These probably aren’t the right fit, but our traditional, tailored process might be perfect for you. Fill out our handy little form for more information!
