Get Started With 4 Easy Steps
Creating a project has never been easier! Once you sign up for one of our subscription plans, we’ll have you fill out our project launch questionnaire and that will ask you everything we need to know.
You will also be able to send us sample works or other materials we may need to get started.
Before we start your project, we’ll schedule a private call between you (or your team) and your assigned account manager. Your account manager will discuss your questionnaire with you and ask you any follow up questions so we get things right. Your account manager will also go over how we work and answer any questions you may have before we move forward.
You’ll receive an email notification from us once a milestone in your project is complete. In this email, we may either need your feedback or final approval. All communications and project deliverables are handled through our project management platform, Basecamp.
Your account manager will always be available through Basecamp, as well as for free phone calls by appointment through their calendar app.
Congratulations, your project is complete! We know how great that can feel. We’ll send you a link through Basecamp where you can securely download your deliverables including their source files. We can also install any development projects directly on your website by request.

What if I go over my plan’s allocated monthly hours?
We designed C9 Shared Teams with flexibility and scalability in mind! During the course of the month, if your project exceeds the allocated budget of hours, we will track the additional hours consumed and charge you our standard hourly rate for those hours used. Our standard hourly rates range between $12.50 per hour to $15.00 per hour depending on the monthly subscription level you signed up for.
These hourly rates are highly competitive, fixed per plan, and remain constant regardless of which specific service you utilize from our coordinated teams included within your monthly plan.
