We believe that both parties should ask questions and clarify expectations in the beginning of the partnership. This form is our effort to do that as proficiently as possible. You probably already completed our Client Onboarding Questionnaire, so this is where we work together to determine the estimated investment to hire Superbase (customized to your needs) so we can begin work right away. We ask a series of basic questions designed to help us better understand your specific goals and define the value that we'll add to your organization because we believe that you should simply pay for the value that you are given from our capabilities. Nothing more, nothing less. Similar to hiring a new employee with valuable experience for the purpose of growing your business, engaging Superbase is an investment that is best reckoned by considering your budget, your needs, and how our expertise will best help you achieve your goals.
There are two methods for preparing an estimate for creative work:
With both of these approaches, we feel that it is you that determines the value that we will add to your organization, not us. Once we know the value we can add to your project, we can calculate an estimate to hire us or a fair investment for executing the project. If another agency just quickly provides you with a flat rate without asking any questions, we would advise you to proceed with caution because almost invariably those types of relationships are riddled with unplanned expenses and unmet expectations.

See, we told you we ask a lot of questions :) Our goal is always to do our best possible work and to do it for great brands that will invest in their own growth. Like all businesses, if we can do this at a profit, then we get to stay in business. Yay for both of us!
