Everything you need,
nothing you don't

COMPACTIFIED is for startups and small businesses that are excellent at their business, but whose business is not digital design. This gap is stealing your time and your success and building anxiety. We think that sucks.

Everything you need to show customers, employees, and investors that you're a professional organization that's in it for the long haul is here, without fancy-sounding but ultimately inefficient and expensive deliverables.

Fixed monthly cost

No surprises here: every month you'll receive an invoice for the same amount, and three days later we'll automatically run your payment.

Easy-peasy for your budgeting and your accounts payable.

Dedicated designer

You'll be assigned a designer as your point of contact for the duration of our work together.

This keeps communication clear and predictable, and it allows our designer to become fluent in you and your business for maximum quality and efficiency.

Monthly schedule

Each month we complete a scheduled, substantial deliverable at a rate you can keep up with. We call it a "module".

You'll always know what's coming. This isn't the place for surprises.

Efficient quality

We're big-agency graduates who breathe details, but who don't want to get wrapped up in fancy deliverables for the sake of self-satisfaction.

No bullshit. Just getting things done.

Flexible scope

The course outlined below is our recommended path for most companies to establish a baseline of marketing collateral.

If you feel you don’t need one of the modules, we’ll skip it.

Clear process

Each module takes a month.
Each module has inputs, a mid-month review, an end-of-month delivery, and a process throughout. And all of that is outlined below.

What & when

Module 1

Strategy

Winning your customers’ attention (and dollars) begins with addressing their specific needs. To define how we can do that, we will assess your target audience’s needs, the competition, and your unique place in the market. A solid strategy will guide visitors down the path we define together as a goal for your digital marketing.

Logo

A logo is the highest-return investment you can make in your brand. A well-constructed logo tells people who you are, how you are, and that you’ll be around a while. It sets a tone for all your customer interactions. And it helps people recognize and connect their interactions with your firm's site, business cards, signs, menus, ads, etc.

Branding & business cards

It is crucial that you have specific standards made specifically for your internal and vendor teams to follow when creating new collateral. Without this “Brand Bible”, you won’t be able to enforce the kind of consistency that demonstrates your professionalism and attention to detail. (Here’s the Cozy styleguide.)

Questions answered

How much is it?

$1200 per module. 

Since each module takes a month, $1200 / month. (Unless you “go faster”, see just below.)

Pay annually instead for a 10% discount.

Can I get just part of it?

Absolutely. Skip any modules you don’t feel you need (though after years of doing this work we do highly recommend the steps outlined above as a minimum for your digital marketing efforts).

Is there a commitment?

No way. 

We don’t want you to work with us because you have to. Get what you want, find value in it, and we hope you’ll decide to continue with us forever. But you can stop any time. We just ask for one month’s warning (so if you want May to be your last month, let us know by the end of April).

I just need a VERY basic site. How much?

Have you already developed a digital strategy? Already have a logo and solid, web-friendly content for the site? Don't need photography? 

Great! Sounds like you just need two modules (#6 and #9). If you haven't checked boxes above, though, we'd strongly recommend you consider doing so, so you get the best ROI from your investment.

The typical minimal site build includes Module 1: Strategy, Module 5: Digital copywriting, Module 6: Launchpad website, and Module 9: Upkeep & improvement. So that's four modules, four months, $4800.

Can we go faster?

This system is optimized for the schedule outlined above, but you can double the speed for double the cost. So instead of $1200 per module, it’d be $2400 – and we’d get it done in half a month.

How do you bill?

We'll ask for your payment information upon signup, then automatically run your monthly payment on the 25th of the previous month.

Ready to apply?

Tell us a bit about you and your business and we’ll be in touch soon (generally within two business days) to ensure we’re a good fit.
