I hate to do it, but the time has come. It’s been a few years since MacSamurai’s rates have increased. In that time, business has been booming and I owe that to all of you. But with a booming business comes not just additional income – but additional expenses. Costs and expenses keep going up, while the rate you’ve been charged has remained the same. Unfortunately, it’s hard to justify continuing to pick up the slack on this end, so a small bump is needed.
Effective Jan 1, 2016 MacSamurai’s hourly rate is $150/hr (1 hour minimum, 30 minute increments thereafter). Any open invoices or estimates will remain as quoted/billed, of course. Remote support sessions will remain $100/hour (30 minute minimum, 15 minute increments thereafter).
If it’s any consolation, MacSamurai accepts Apple Pay now! So you can pay that slightly bigger bill with nothing but your iPhone or your Apple Watch, which somehow maybe makes it hurt less?
My New Year’s Resolution: Continue providing you with the best possible value by giving you the support you need, when you need it, at a fair price, and almost always with a smile 🙂
