We have a time tested science behind our pricing, we ask all our clients the below questions about your products, solutions, pricing, goals and jobs to be done. The below questionnaire will take you about 30 minutes to complete and your responses will help us to craft the perfect path forward to achieve the impossible.
Phase 2: Agreement Terms & Getting To Work:
Step 1 – Let’s Negotiate
The client and service provider will meet with Across Oceans Group to discuss the full scope of the service and the jobs to be done. The parties will negotiate the monthly retainer amount, relationship terms, sales revenue strategy, expectations, and termination. You don’t hire AOG to help you do better work. You hire AOG to help you create a new path forward to better work in a more sustainable, profitable, and scalable manner.
Step 2 – How we work
1.) Pay for Work
Payment used as advance payment for future services. Client agrees to $4,000 retainer a month. AOG Part-Time Example: $100 per hour for services at 40 hours (10 hours a week) and paid commission at 10% of product sales.
2.) Pay for Access
Recurring payment for an on-going sales and support relationship between the client and AOG consultant. AOG Flat Rate Example: A client pays an ongoing monthly retainer without expiration date for services and scope of work developed every month and a paid commission (at 10% of product sales).
