SERVICES and PRICES

You want to know what you’re getting and how much it’s going to cost.

We get that.

The LaCroix Creative Price Guide can help!

We understand that your time is valuable and that knowing — at least roughly — how much your creative content project might cost saves you both time and frustration.

At LaCroix Creative, we aren’t into hiding our fees. We’d rather have open communication and transparency.

So we do something a lot of agencies do not — we tell you our prices up front.

We aren’t afraid to do so, because we believe that the professionalism, expertise, and experience you’ll receive are very much inline with our prices. 

Please keep in mind that these prices aren’t absolute. Every project is unique, and so are its associated costs.

Your project’s price might be different than the fees and rates mentioned here. We encourage you to contact us for a FREE initial consultation and the most accurate quote. We reserve the right to change our prices at any time. 

But this guide will give you a very good idea of what we offer and what those services might cost, so you can make an educated decision regarding our services and how we can best help you with your content.

With that said, here are our packages and their costs for the various creative content services we offer.

LaCroix Creative Hourly Retainer Packages

Imagine — your company’s own creative marketing department,
but without all the overhead and headaches!

Our standard hourly rate is $80. However, if you use our creative content services regularly and often, you can receive a considerable discount by putting LaCroix Creative on retainer. Retainers are highly recommended for businesses that use our creative content services on a monthly basis. It’s like having your own creative marketing department, but without all the typical issues and costs that come from having one in house. The hours can be applied to any and all creative content services rendered, except photography and videography.

BRONZE LEVEL
$750

10 hours per month
($75 an hour)

SILVER LEVEL
$1,400

20 hours per month
($70 an hour)

GOLD LEVEL
$1,950

30 hours per month
($65 an hour)

PLATINUM LEVEL
$2,400

40 hours per month
($60 an hour)

There is a minimum charge of a quarter hour for any service. Any retainer hours left at the end of the month roll over into the next month. However, they do expire after 12 months. All retainer packages are paid per month up front. Additional monthly hours are billed at the rate of the level you chose. There is no reimbursement for any unused hours, and retainer fees are not refundable for any reason. CONTACT US for more information!

LaCroix Creative Flat Fee Packages

At LaCroix Creative, we’ve found that when projects are “finite” — that is, they have clear start and end dates and well-defined parameters — flat fee billing works out better for everyone involved.

With a hard-quoted, flat fee, there’s never a question about how much a project — within its well-defined parameters — will cost. It makes budgeting much easier for you and helps us better fulfill your expectations.

PLEASE NOTE: Every project is considered and quoted individually. However, while your final quoted price might differ from the flat fees listed here, you can still use this guide to get an idea regarding how much your project might cost. All of our packages represent a discounted rate from our standard hourly fee, to help you get more for less.
