You'll receive numerous updates as I work, in order for you to see exactly what you're getting and to correct me or encourage me, depending if I'm straying from the path we agreed on or am successfully accomplishing a new approach you like. You'll always know exactly what you're getting before the final deadline.
And talk to me, through the project message board, it's the only way I can fully tune into your project; when you give me feedback and input, especially when I request more information or your opinion.
First payment is to start.
Payment milestones from $1500 and up can be broken into fourths (1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4 or more, if necessary); that let's discuss it.
If the fee is $600 or over, we can break it into thirds (1/3, 2/3, 3/3) for payment; otherwise one half (1/2) to start, second half (2/2) due upon final delivery. If fee is under $600, 1/2 to start, 2/2 upon completion.
