What is Design on Retainer?
Design on Retainer is a monthly investment that saves time and money while delivering high-quality, personalized content. Our Design on Retainer clients get a reduced rate on all services so we can be on standby for whatever they may need in a given month. This flexibility means that you get exactly what you need, when you need it. Think of us as your on-call marketing team!
What are the Benefits of Design on Retainer?
Instead of dealing with a quote, scope of work, sign offs and approvals for each project, you’ll be able to simply send us a request, and we’ll deliver. It’s that easy. You’ll also avoid the minimum service fee on smaller projects. Saving time AND money = major win!
Because we’ll be working with your company on a regular basis, we’ll develop a consistency that is absolutely key in creating a powerful brand presence that your customers will come to recognize and trust.
Because we offer such a wide range of services, you can make your monthly investment work for you. We can have recurring tasks that we do each month, or we can mix things up and tackle some big projects. It’s up to you!
As your business grows, you end up with less and less time to ensure you always look your best...which is an essential part of growth! We help with this conundrum by guaranteeing that your company looks and sounds awesome, which allows you to focus on making it even awesomer.
As an honorary part of your team, we’ll be able to tap into a creative space that is best reached by those who are deeply invested in your long-term success. As we get to know you and your brand, we’ll spend less time trying to figure out what you want, and more time coming up with ingenious ideas that will help catapult you to the next level.
By making a monthly commitment to us, we’re able to offer you a lower rate. Have a slow month where you didn’t need us much? Don’t worry, your hours roll over into the next month for up to 6 months.
How does it work?
Regular Monthly Services
Together we will determine which services you’d like us to tackle each month. This is different for every business, but here’s an example of a typical monthly to-do list for a 10-hour DOR client:
• Monthly e-newsletter
• Monthly blog post
• Bi-monthly website health checks
• Social media graphics
• 2-3 print or digital ads
• Updating printed materials (business card, rack card, brochure, etc.)
Any hours leftover after the regular monthly services can be used for anything else that comes up -- literally anything. This includes things like refreshed business cards, website edits, print materials, ads, and whatever else you can think of!
We will check in with you regularly via email to make sure we’re all on the same page. Nothing goes out without your final approval.
Point of Contact
Speaking of communication, we require a single point of contact when working with DOR clients. We suggest you choose someone on your team who has excellent communication skills and a deep understanding of the business’ needs.
We’re not about those one-size-fits-all plans. Design on Retainer with LCCM is an ongoing relationship that should work for all parties involved. We’ll set up your contract based on what works best for you!
