"Do not worry ,saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'; For your Heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. " Matthew 6:31-33
It doesn't matter who you are, pricing is always the hardest part of a business. How much is your product or time worth? How much will people think its worth? Are you losing money by undercharging? Are you losing work by overcharging? Its tricky business.
I believe Jesus' words from Matthew 6 when He tells his followers not to worry about their life, what they will eat or drink or wear. He promises that He knows our needs and will provide. My pricing philosophy may seem outlandish to some and make perfect sense to others. Either way, I am trusting the Creator of all to meet my needs. So, here is my pricing. Pay what you can, when you can. What does this mean? It means you will never receive an invoice from me and we will not have a back and forth on pricing. I am very selective about who I take on as clients. I generally only take on work for non profits, churches, or businesses that are redeeming their respective industries for the advancement of Jesus' kingdom. I don't do this for the money. I do it because I love it and want to serve my neighbor.
I trust that my value I bring will speak for itself. I am trusting that my clients are honest and understand the value of my work. And I am trusting God to ultimately provide for my family. When you engage me for a project, I will still generate and operate from a Statement of Work, but pricing will not be discussed. You may pay me whatever you can afford and think my work is worth. You may pay it at the start of a project, the middle, end, or even months and years later. If I work for free, so be it. Call me a fool, but this is the path I feel called too. You may also support my work even if you never use my services. By doing so you are supporting the work of those that may not be able to afford the design services they need. Good design shouldn't be reserved for only those with large budgets. Jesus doesn't opperate that way so neither will I.
I also understand many have no idea what design servies typically run. I have provided a sample pricing sheet for those that don't even know where to start, but this is purely for information purposes and not an expecation. I mean what I said. Pay what you can, when you can. If you have any further questions feel free to ask. If you would like to donate you may do so below.
