We regret that we are not always able to take on new clients.
It always has been and shall remain the position of Mind Vault that it is better to serve the few perfectly, than to serve the many ordinarily.
If Mind Vault turns out to be a good fit for your business or organizational needs and we’re booked when you contact us, we’ll offer you a spot on our waiting list.
If your project needs are more urgent than our waiting list will allow, we can, at your request, attempt to match you with another partner in our network that can meet both your needs and time frame.
Pricing / Client FAQ:
How much does it cost to partner with Mind Vault?
Our Standard Hourly Rate (SHR) is $50.00 per hour with a 24-hour (or less) turnaround time on all requests.
If you represent a government agency, nonprofit organization or not-for-profit initiative, we also offer the following rates, each of which will be dependent upon the terms of your individual agreement:
$35.00 per Hour
*Turnaround Time: 48 hours or less
$25.00 per Hour
*Turnaround Time: 72 hours or less
*Turnaround time is defined as the time elapsed from the time a service request is received to the time that service request is expected to be satisfied.
So all Mind Vault services are billed hourly?
That is correct.
Do you offer flat rates?
Only at select times and only to select clients. We offer flat rates as incentives to clients that we believe will benefit from a long term relationship with Mind Vault. Since flat rates are not profitable for us in the short term we use them as incentives to onboard or lengthen those client relationships that we wish to initiate and/or extend. We also offer flat rates as a means of gauging new client usage and as a means of donating our services to causes that we believe benefit the community at large. If you represent a government agency, nonprofit organization or not-for-profit initiative, please inquire about our flat and reduced hourly rates.
Can you give me an example of how a flat rate works?
Certainly. There will always be 4 different pieces in play with any flat rate. These pieces are:
- The AMOUNT of the Flat Rate being offered.
- The TURNAROUND TIME on the Flat Rate being offered. (*This determines the hourly rate.)
- The CAP on the Flat Rate being offered.
- The DURATION of the Flat Rate being offered.
*All flat rates still have hourly rates attached to them because all services are still itemized, even under a flat rate. This itemization of services, even under a flat rate, allows you to continuously measure your usage over time, even if you’re not currently paying for all of it while you’re under the flat rate.
For our Flat Rate example offer we will utilize the following:
- AMOUNT: $500.00 USD.
- TURNAROUND TIME: 72 Hours or Less ($25.00 per Hour).
- CAP: 50%.
- DURATION: 6 months.
1.) $500.00 / $25.00 per Hour = 20 Hours per Month
2.) 50% of 20 Hours per Month = 10 Hours per Month (This is your cap. Anything over (20 + 10 =) 30 hours within any of the next 6 months will be billed hourly (at $25 per hour) in addition to your flat rate.
3.) This means that you are being offered 30 Hours of work a month, for the next 6 months, for the cost of only 20. Or, you could look at it as paying only $12.50 / Hour for a 30 hour per month package for the next 6 months. Either view is accurate.
Depending upon our client schedule at the time your flat rate comes up for renewal we we may or may not be able to offer you another flat rate. As you can see from the above example our flat rates are wholly dependent upon our ability to provide you with a discount over time. Which is something we are always more than happy to do anytime it makes sense for both parties. But it is something that we are only able to do when our client schedule is open enough to permit it.
Many other combinations of amounts, turnaround times, caps and duration may be assembled and offered, but they all work in precisely the same way.
