Retainer or Project?


Marcom Content by Ashley, LLC (MCA) provides a variety of retainer packages to clients. From new to traditional media, there is something for everyone. MCA is known for their project management, so they will keep track of the hours and budget you have allotted to work with them.

MCA can develop a customized plan, too. One size does not fit all, so they will review your business needs before offering you a package. Prior to working with MCA, review all the services you need and what’s in the agreed-upon contract. Any service not included within the retainer will be considered out of scope.

Retainer packages are nice because it’s like having a virtual employee at your disposal. MCA offers discounts to those retainer clients, so it’s always worth the discussion. You can purchase a six-month or yearly retainer with MCA. Otherwise, it will be considered monthly, project-based work.

If you are another agency and would like to work with MCA, they can certainly do that. They have relationships with many agencies, freelancers and consultants. Just let MCA know your budget and the desired service, so they can work on an agreement.
