Affordable Small Business Advice for Sustainable Success 
We do our very best for each client that we work with, individually.  In exchange, we ask to be treated, and paid, fairly too.

WE ARE WORTH IT

Leverage = maximum return for minimum outlay. Small Business consulting is affordable and worth it when business is a priority, and critical when creating a Business Plan.

Fees are R300/hour for ad-hoc work, excluding travel. Quoted projects are cheaper; see prices on relevant pages (Websites, AdWords, SEO, Analytics, E-mail Marketing) & Retainer Packages. Costs are customised to your needs. Work is subject to T&C's.

T&C's

Like most of our clients, we're a small lean operation, trying to offer superb service at affordable cost to help more small businesses. This necessitates fair terms.

If our terms are not acceptable to you, we encourage you to find another organisation to assist you. Rest assured that our T&C's are also there for your protection, prompting our most individual, professional, quality service.

All quotes and work are subject to our Terms and Conditions below:

  • DEPOSITS and CANCELLATIONS

    1. Once we understand your needs, we'll provide a success roadmap for you. We issue a formal quote for each distinct phase of work. If quote is accepted, a 50% deposit is required before work will be scheduled or started.
    2. If extended requirements discovery is required, needs definition sessions will be billed for on a weekly basis, together with findings and recommendations to date. You can stop the discovery process without losing value.
    3. Once work is complete, the balance is invoiced and payable upon presentation.
    4. Full payment of the invoiced balance has to be received before deliverables, passwords etc will be released.
    5. Cancellation: If work has started after quote acceptance, you lose the deposit paid. If we receive ample notice before finishing all work, we may agree to not invoice the full balance; actual expenses (e.g. stock, travel), will be charged.
    6. Any refund made at our sole discretion will incur a R500 admin fee.

  • INCURRED COSTS

    1. Travel Costs seldom apply as we do most of our work remotely, however, where required, it will incur standard AA rates, plus a fee to cover time spent.
    2. Incidentals: where a project incurs actual costs, e.g. printing of brochures or signs, courier costs, data charges in the event of unusually large volumes of data, or 3rd party services or deliverables, these will be recovered from the client in all cases, at at least the actual cost price.

  • APPOINTMENTS

    1. We offer ONE FREE 40 MINUTE CONSULT. It is forfeited if you don't show or cancel it within 24 hours of appointment.
    2. Subsequent appointments not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance, will be charged for at our standard consulting rate.

You cannot afford NOT to spend on the marketing of your small business.  Don't become a failure statistic.

"I worked extensively with Ronel for a month on a hand-over project for my online tourism business. I was super impressed with Ronel's knowledge of digital marketing, including website development, SEO optimization, Google AdWords and Social Media integration. She knows how to align the online strategy with the business strategy and how to make money from it."
