I confess, I’m one of those people who prefers e-mail to telephones, but I’m always happy to get calls from prospective clients. (During civilized hours, please. I wake up early and go to bed early.)
However you want to get in touch with me first, what I normally do after we’ve had an initial conversation is set up an appointment to meet in person or by Skype video to discuss your project in more detail. Then, if you want to proceed, we make out a more detailed scope of work and a contract, I collect an initial deposit, and we get to work. (The contract phase can be longer and more complex with corporate clients, but normally I try to keep things as simple as possible; I just like to have enough in writing to ensure everyone is clear what we’re supposed to be doing, what the outcome is supposed to be, when it’s supposed to be done, and what the payment schedule is.)
I’ve always hated hard-sell salespeople, so you don’t have to worry that I’ll try to pressure you into anything if you call or e-mail me. If you have questions you can’t find answers to on the website, I’ll be happy to answer them. If I think someone else would be a better person to help you, I’ll happily refer you to them.
Please do let me know if you run into any problems with the website.
