How we can assist

How much does your idea cost? Putting a price on an idea is one of the biggest flaws facing agencies and even clients. Sometimes it might take a day, other times it takes six months to crack the right idea. So should you pay for the hours spent on the job or for the worth of the idea? This is where WE give you the honest choice!

HOW pwycfyc WORKS

  • The process starts by filling out this questionnaire. This gives us a clearer understanding of who we are talking to and what your current and future needs are.

  • Once we receive your questionnaire results, we will set up a consultation time in the medium you have requested to be contacted in, video call, WhatsApp, telephonically, or face to face. And don't worry, if we meet face to face, the coffee is on us.

  • After the consultation, we draw up a proposal/ discovery document where we overview your needs and what was discussed, just in case we missed anything, and cover pricing options as well. We will send this digitally via email or Whatsapp.

  • Once you are happy with the proposal and have selected your pricing structure, we will commence work once a variable deposit is paid and verified, based on the approved document.

  • This system is based on goodwill, trust, and integrity and once you have selected your structure, we are committed to providing you with the work needed to uplift your brand. Each project and payment is structured to your needs and your choices.

  • You may have the option to split the balance of your project total over 3 to 6 payments if it cannot be paid in one installment, and only once the deposit is paid for the project will we discuss these options, should they arise. The maximum time for settling these payments is 90 days/ 3 months, based on the project and the final costing. This means that payments are not necessarily running on a monthly term, but on an agreed formula that you can afford and agree upon. For example; The project costs R2000, and a 50% deposit is required, making that R1000 deposit, with the balance being split over 4 payments @ R250, to be paid within the 90 days stipulated and agreed upon a term plan document. Should payment not be completed by the agreed-upon term, legal action may be instituted.

Other ways we can assist

Trade Deals

At our core we are about second chances, so we can also discuss and may offer a Barter Deal, but this is may only be as a part payment and is based on the goodwill that a 50% deposit is paid first and the balance in the agreed service or product. In the long term, we would like to create a directory where we can do cashless trading, not only for us but the Community.

Community Service

Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, and or your business. The right match can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. If you can show that you are an accredited volunteer, like someone who always signs up and has a reference (like helping out at SANCOB, etc) then we might be persuaded to throw you a discounted rate. And for those NGO's and NPO's that are looking for some creative assistance, don't worry we might have a surprise in store for you.
