Pricing

Let’s Cut To The Chase On Pricing.
(You’re Going To Ask Anyway, Right?)

Our brand strategies start at an investment of $799 and reach up to $5,000 total.
Our retainers start at $1,000 per month and reach up to $5,000 per month.
Our projects start at $750 per month.
Our marketing coaching plans start at $750 per month.

Do The Math. It’s The Best Damn Marketing Value In Chicago. 
Look at our retainers and let’s assume your budget is in the range we’ve given above. You’re getting a Virtual Chief Creative Officer / Chief Marketing Officer with 25 years of creative and strategic experience along with a proven marketing system for less than what you’d pay a competent Marketing Coordinator in Chicago.

If you do have a good Marketing Coordinator, you can fit the both of us into your budget for a hell of a lot less than what you’d pay one Chief Creative Officer or Chief Marketing Officer in Chicago.

A few other important points and expectations we have that are important to know:

We do flat rate pricing only. Not hourly rates.
We agree on the same monthly investment if it’s a retainer and that’s what the investment is every month. It doesn’t go up or down unless an additional contractor is needed, which we will discuss in advance. If it winds up that we do a little bit more one month for you, so be it.

Regardless of the amount, you must be supremely comfortable with that investment every single month or we’ll walk away before you can sign anything. We just will not make anyone feel stretched thin financially. We want you to continually feel that you are getting extraordinary value for the talent and system now under your roof.

We don’t work with people for under 6 months on retainers.
If you’re serious about marketing, you’ll see it as a vital ingredient to your success long-term. Not something you “try out” for a few months and see how it goes. We’re talking about building the foundation of your brand atop important strategic work and many other components of an overall marketing system that isn’t built in anything close to a day, a week, a month or a quarter. So if you want to work with us, you must have at least the mindset of optimism that this will work out and be a fantastic relationship for a long time to come.

We’re the Head Chef in the kitchen of marketing.
You can have other cooks (i.e. vendors) but WE are the ones in charge. We’re bringing the strategy. We’re bringing the storytelling. And we’re bringing the proven marketing system – and if you want that working for you, we’re one of only a few in the world who are qualified to run it and direct others in the process. Kind of makes sense, doesn’t it?

We sincerely hope you fall into the criteria above so that we can start a conversation and see where it takes us!
