terms of service
the fine print
“The Primary Consultant” is Jessica and the “Secondary Consultant” is any other team member under the employ of 25 Hours Consulting. “The Client” is any person, body of persons, firm, company, or organization with whom the consultants or any member of 25 Hours enters into a contract for the provision of consulting services. “The Company” is 25 Hours Consulting, LLC, which may also be referred to as “25 Hours” in document language and elsewhere. “Content” shall refer to any deliverables from The Company, including but not limited to written copy, files, documents, and anything authored, created, or otherwise executed by 25 Hours Consulting, LLC.
Acceptance of Terms & Conditions
All contracts and transactions between 25 Hours and the Client, whether made orally or in writing, are subject to these terms and conditions, which shall be deemed to be incorporated into any contract between the Company and any/all of its Clients.

No images or content may be copied, duplicated or otherwise taken from the website without express written consent from 25 Hours Consulting, LLC and/or the Primary Consultant.

Consultations, Quotes, Proposals, Contracts, and Deposits
When services are requested, The Company will initiate a complimentary, brief, initial phone consultation to learn more about The Client and the project. At the conclusion of this phone call or shortly thereafter, if it was determined that The Company is the right fit for The Client and the request and work should begin, The Company will send a quote. A quote is merely an estimate or a representation of possible fees to be accumulated for the project. The actual fees accumulated may be higher or lower than what appears in the quote. The Company is not bound by the quote in any way. Once The Client acknowledges the quote and expresses the desire to proceed with the project, The Company will begin work and the invoicing period will commence. A la carte projects are billed hourly for time spent. It is impossible to predict exactly how much time a project will require. Once the project has come to satisfactory completion, the invoice will be sent to The Client and payment will be due. Complete payment terms are below. Proposals and contracts are not typically generated for à la carte services, due to the brevity and scope of the project.
Once the Client acknowledges the quote for a monthly package service and expresses the desire to proceed with the project, The Company will draft a proposal and a contract. The proposal is a more formalized quote, which may allow The Client more than one option to choose from, include itemized pricing information, and which will require signature and acceptance in order to proceed. The acceptance of the proposal via signature will initiate The Client's agreement to the contract and terms described therein. The information contained in the proposal and the contract are at the discretion of The Company and are tailored specifically to The Client. Prices listed on this website and in quotes are for the purpose of estimation. Actual proposal pricing and contract terms may vary and are agreed upon by The Company and The Client. The minimum contract term for a package service is 90 days. Contracts are also available in six month periods and annually. A client's signature and acceptance of a contract represents their commitment and involvement to the project and to remitting payment as outlined in their contract for the duration of the contract term. If The Client wishes to cancel their services before completion of the contract term, fees may apply. No refunds are guaranteed. See below for a complete explanation of our cancellation policy. Deposits may be required at the time of contract signing or before work commences. This depends on the nature of the project and is at the discretion of The Company. Deposit terms will be agreed upon between The Company and The Client.
a. Non-monthly clients: For all non-monthly account holders, payment for à la carte services provided by the Primary Consultant or any Secondary Consultant must be made upon completion of the assignment.
b. Monthly clients: For all monthly account holders (package service clients), payments can be made bi-weekly, monthly, or the entire contract amount may be paid up front (lump sum). Payment terms will be mutually agreed upon by both the Client and the Company by way of proposal and contract, and any change in payment amount, terms, or schedule will require an amendment to the contract.
c. Late fees: The Primary Consultant reserves the right to suspend accounts and services without notice should the Client fail to remit payment of the Company’s invoice(s) within 8 days of the invoice's due date. A late fee of $30 will be applied to each 8-day period of non-payment. An additional $30 fee will be assessed to all cancelled or bounced checks/online payments.
d. Interest on unpaid invoices: The Primary Consultant reserves the right to charge interest on all past-due invoices at a rate of 3% per month, in addition to any late fees or returned check/payment fees.
e. Deposits and/or set-up fees: Depending on the scope and length of the project as set forth in the proposal and contract, a deposit of 25-50% of the total project amount will be required to begin services for monthly customers. Deposit sum and terms are up to the discretion of the Primary Consultant at the time of contract signing and will depend upon the length and size of the project. The Primary Consultant is the only representative of the Company who may change and revise deposit terms. A deposit will be shown as a credit on the client's first invoice, which will be dated 30 days from receipt of deposit. Certain services may require set-up fees. These one-time fees must be paid up-front before the corresponding service begins, and these fees are not included in an initial deposit, nor are they credited on any subsequent invoice. All set-up fees are non-refundable. All deposits are non-refundable once work has started.
f. Account-related expenses: Certain services incur expenses exclusive of the Client's package, such as monthly website subscription and hosting fees, stock images, social media boosting and promotion, and AdWords expenditures, etc. These costs are the responsibility of the Client and, depending on the amount, will either be paid by the Consultant and invoiced to the Client for reimbursement or will be set up for direct billing to the Client's credit card. These costs are unrelated to services provided by the Consultant and are not paid to the Consultant.
g. Notice of price changes: Prices are subject to change at any time without notice. Pricing at time of contract signing as stated on website will always be honored for the term/length of the contract, unless contract length surpasses one year. Active contracts are subject to price review every 12 months on the day after the anniversary of contract establishment date.
h. Booking terms: Minimum booking for à la carte services is two hours. Projects may (and are likely to) last longer than two hours. When the Client books an à la carte service, they are accepting an estimation of time to be billed for their project. Actual invoice billing will reflect time spent, billed by the hour. For example, if a resume preparation project is estimated to take three hours but it actually takes three hours and 45 minutes, the Client will be billed for the duration of the project time — no more and no less.
Payment for Services Rendered
Payment for services rendered is due upon completion of work for à la carte (non-monthly) clients. The Client will receive an invoice from the Company, and the invoice must be paid within 8 days of receipt, or else the Company reserves the right to assess interest and late fees as outlined above.
Payment for services rendered to monthly (package) clients is due upon the payment date(s) both outlined in the contract and shown on the invoice, and the above terms apply.
Retention of Title
The Company reserves the right to retain all of the Client’s materials in its possession until all monies owed to the Company have been paid in full.
Requests for Services
a. The Primary Consultant or any Secondary Consultant or Team Member may be hired by the hour for à la carte services, with a minimum hourly booking of two (2) hours, and on a monthly basis for all package services. Services may be requested via phone, website, email, or in-person.
b. Service arrangement not official until contract is signed by client and returned to the Company.
c. Unfortunately, 25 Hours cannot accommodate last-minute service requests. Please request services at least 72 hours in advance of your anticipated project start date.
d. Travel Time: If travel is necessary (i.e. for concept meetings and in-person consultations) beyond 30 minutes, travel time will be computed at the US mileage rate of .54 cents per mile plus $20 for mileage beyond a 45-mile radius from zip code 08053.
e. Mailing, postage, and any other costs incurred during execution of services will be added to customer's invoice and may be in addition to amount contracted for service.
Cancellations Subject to the Following Conditions
1. Less than 48 hours notice given or services already started and interrupted:
a. Monthly/Package Clients for whom work has not started: If Client has signed a contract and wishes to cancel a project before it begins, 48 hours notice to the Consultant is necessary, in writing. If a deposit was paid, 25% of the deposit will be retained for preparation time and inconvenience. 75% of the deposit will be returned to the customer and the contract will be voided.
b. Monthly/Package Clients for whom work has been underway for less than one billing cycle: If notice of cancellation is received after services have begun, the entire deposit will be retained by the Company, and the Client will be billed an hourly rate for work already completed.
c. Interruption/Cancellation of a recurring monthly project: The Client is responsible for notifying the Consultant in writing a full 30 days before their next billing cycle to stop work. This will ensure that the current invoice/billing period, once paid, will be final. If the Client notifies the Consultant after a billing period has already begun, the Client will be billed an hourly rate for work completed during the current invoice period. No percentage of the deposit will be refunded, and the Client may be subject to a penalty of 10% of the monthly invoice for the months remaining on the contract.
d. Non-Monthly/à la carte Clients (for whom a deposit has not been taken): If notice of cancellation is given 48 hours or less from the contracted project start date, and work has not begun, the Client will be charged an hourly rate up to 50% of the total quoted project cost. This will be invoiced and payment will be due within 15 days of the invoice due date. The project contract will be voided. If notice of cancellation is given after work has already begun, the Client will be charged the full quoted price of the à la carte service, and the invoice payment will be due immediately.
2. If notice of cancellation for any project is given at least 72 hours in advance and no work has been completed:
a. 90% of the deposit for monthly services will be refunded and the contract voided.
b. Contract will be voided and no payment will be due for à la carte services.
No refunds will be given for work completed. The Primary Consultant, Secondary Consultant(s) and other Team Members of the Company will make every effort to ensure client satisfaction, within reasonable parameters and in accordance to contracted project deadlines. As per the above Cancellation Policy, 90% of the deposit will be refunded to package clients who have given notice of cancellation in writing at least 72 hours in advance of the project start date, and no fees will be due from à la carte clients who have provided notice of cancellation in writing at least 72 hours in advance of a project start date.
Overruns and Extensions
The Company may bill for additional charges should an assignment last beyond the duration originally specified/intended by the Client, which is beyond the control of the Company and the Primary Consultant (e.g. including but not limited to the Client requesting additional work beyond the scope of the contract, etc.). If the work cannot be completed within the agreed amount of time due to unforeseen difficulties, complications, or other delays, 25 Hours or their agent and the Client agree to amend the contract either verbally or in writing, to provide for additional time as required to complete the work. If the Client does not approve the change before the extension or overrun is to begin, the work will be considered complete at the expiration of the original time allotted, and payment for the full contracted amount on the invoice will be due. All overruns and extensions will be notated and itemized on the invoice, and once extension work has been completed, it must be paid. No renegotiations will be entertained for extension work performed according to an amended contract.
If project overrun or extension is a result of the Client’s dissatisfaction with completed work, the Company will make reasonable efforts to amend the work and will charge half the hourly rate for duration of the extension or until satisfactory completion of project is reached. If extension fees have already been paid in full and the Client expresses dissatisfaction with the work without wishing to commission further revisions, a credit of 50% of the extension fees will be reimbursed to the Client.
Completion of Work and Use of Deliverables
Work is considered complete when the Primary Consultant or any Secondary Consultant or Team Member of 25 Hours provides the Client with the contracted goods or services up to the end of a contract term. This includes copy material, documents and files, creative work, and any other deliverables requested. Final deliverables of content marketing and à la carte services may be provided either digitally, in print, or both, as agreed upon by the Company and the Client. Content and materials may not be copied, distributed, or used in any form besides the original contracted intent, without express written permission from the Primary Consultant.
Each signed contract includes up to two (2) revisions for work completed, which can be requested at any stage of the project, upon project completion, or within thirty (30) days of the project completion date. Revisions causing project deadlines to extend beyond the contracted date will require an amendment to the contract and an hourly rate for the extended term at 50% of the normal hourly rate. See Overruns and Extensions above for more information.
Note: Revisions are considered a normal part of the content marketing and copywriting process. Revisions within the scope of the normally contracted work do not indicate client dissatisfaction. Client dissatisfaction occurs when the Client is unsatisfied with the work delivered after the two (2) included revisions have been made and only if the Client expresses in writing their complaint and desired resolution in a manner reasonably plausible for the Company to remedy.
Revisions are all-inclusive and can be minor in scope or can include a partial or complete re-working of a project. Beyond the two (2) contract-inclusive revisions, additional revisions which fall within the realm of the project completion deadline will be billed and invoiced at 25% of the normal hourly rate. Revisions beyond the two (2) contract-inclusive revisions causing the project deadline to be extended will be subject to the above terms of Overruns and below terms of Complaints and Requests for Amended Work (50% of the normal hourly rate).
The Company reserves the right to limit or cap the number of project extensions and revisions at any time and to cease, terminate, or transfer ownership of a service or project. A secondary contract may be proposed for revisions and overruns in excess of what is deemed reasonable by the Company. At such a time, the scope of work will be renegotiated.
Complaints and Requests for Amended Work
If the Client is for any reason dissatisfied with the quality of the work received after their two (2) contract-allowed revisions have been made, the Client may either request a project extension at 50% of the hourly rate for the duration of the service, or they may request a Company Credit good for one complimentary à la carte service to be used within one year.
In order for Consultants to efficiently rectify complaints and remedy Client issues, dissatisfaction must be reported by the Client in writing within thirty (30) days of completion of the service.
Custom Website Design Services
The Company builds new websites and can (in ideal situations) redesign and transfer existing ones. A consultation will be held between the Company and prospective Client to determine scope of work. Depending on the Company's capacity, a consultant may take on the website project. Website projects are available in three tiers, broken down into corresponding term lengths. Payments can be made in installment and a proposal and contract will be created by the Company at the discretion of the Consultant. Work will not begin until Client accepts proposal and contract and makes deposit. Consultation meetings and calls are included in the cost of the project (up to a certain number). Client is responsible for any fees associated with website ownership, such as domain purchase/renewal, hosting, monthly subscription fees, or graphic design costs. Clients who wish to transfer existing sites must provide adequate information regarding hosting and site management. Client must either provide all content for site or acknowledge that the total cost of the project will be higher if content is crafted by a Consultant. The Company is not responsible for any delays due to technical difficulties arising from misinformation, complications with transfer, or Client's failure to pay any associated fees. Upon project completion, ongoing maintenance plans are available (and optional). Clients may receive discounted or free maintenance if they utilize other 25 Hours Consulting content services. Clients will be given access to their sites upon request and only upon project completion. The Company is not responsible for changes made to the site by the Client, or problems that arise from any such changes outside of the advice of the Consultant. Other terms and conditions may apply.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Services
SEO services are intended to serve two main purposes: 1) to achieve increased Client exposure in search engines, and 2) to drive targeted online traffic to Client's website.
SEO services include:
- Researching keywords and phrases to select appropriate and relevant search terms
- Editing and/or optimization of site text for various html tags, meta tags, page titles, and page text as necessary
- Analysis and recommendations regarding optimal website structure, navigation, code, etc. for the purposes of achieving optimal SEO performance
- Recommendations, as required, regarding additional web pages or content for the purpose of "catching" keyword/phrase searches
- Creation of traffic and ranking reports for Client's website and any associated pages showing rankings in specified search engine(s) - depends on SEO package selected
For the purposes of receiving professional SEO services, Client agrees to the following:
- Grant administrative/back-end access to Client's website for analysis of content and structure
- Give permission to make changes to Client's site for the purpose of optimization and to communicate with any relevant third parties (e.g., Client's web designer) when necessary
- Grant unlimited access to existing website traffic statistics for analysis and tracking purposes
- Provide a business email address for the purpose of requesting links and content (something like email@example.com)
- Grant authorization to use Client's pictures, logos, trademarks, website images, content, etc. for any purpose as deemed necessary by 25 Hours Consulting for SEO optimization
- If Client's site is lacking in textual content, Client will provide additional text/copy in electronic format for the purpose of creating additional or richer web pages. 25 Hours Consulting can create site content at additional cost to the Client.
Client must acknowledge the following with respect to SEO services:
- All fees are non-refundable.
- All fees, services, documents, recommendations, and reports are confidential.
- SEO strategy and recommendations are made by the Company based on credible professional experience. 25 Hours Consulting has no control over the policies of search engines with respect to the types of sites and/or content that they accept now or in the future. The Client's website may be excluded from any directory or search engine at any time, at the sole discretion of the search engine or directory.
- Due to the competitiveness of certain keywords and phrases, ongoing changes in search engine ranking algorithms, and other competitive factors, 25 Hours Consulting does not guarantee #1 positions or consistent top 10 positions for any particular keyword, phrase, or search term.
- Google has been known to hinder the rankings of new websites or pages until they have proven their viability to exist for more than 2-3 months. This is referred to as the "Google Sandbox." 25 Hours Consulting assumes no liability for ranking/traffic/indexing issues related to Google Sandbox practices.
- Occasionally, search engines will drop listings for no apparent or predictable reason. Often, the listing will reappear without any additional SEO efforts. Should a listing be dropped during an SEO campaign and not reappear within 30 days of campaign completion, The Company will re-optimize the website/page based on the current policies of the search engine in question.
- Some search directories offer expedited listing services for a fee. If the Client wishes to engage in said expedited listing services (e.g., paid directories), the Client is responsible for all paid-for-inclusion or expedited service fees.
- Linking to "bad neighborhoods" or obtaining links from "link farms" can seriously damage all SEO efforts. 25 Hours Consulting does not assume liability for the Client's choice to link to or obtain a link from any particular website without prior consultation.
25 Hours Consulting is not responsible for changes made by other parties that adversely affect the search engine rankings of the Client's website.
SEO and web support services are only provided by the Company as part of a Gold Package (or higher) service agreement.
Additional services not listed herein (such as managing pay-per-click campaigns, copywriting, link baiting, etc.) can be provided for a fee.
Depending on the scope of the project in question, 25 Hours Consulting may, through partnership, employ Modern Moth Media to assist with the SEO and/or web support facets of the Client's project. For the client's convenience, 25 Hours Consulting will remain the project manager and will work directly with any partner companies on behalf of the Client. At no time does the Client enter into a contract or relationship with any partner firm, nor does the Client work with a partner firm directly. All agreements and contracts with 25 Hours Consulting will stand and supersede any arrangement made by the Company with a partnering firm. The Client's only obligation is to 25 Hours Consulting.
The Client guarantees any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork provided to 25 Hours Consulting for inclusion on the Client's website are owned by the Client, or that the Client has received permission from the rightful owner(s) to use each of the elements, and will hold harmless, protect, and defend 25 Hours Consulting and its subcontractors from any liability or suit arising from the use of such elements.

The Client and its associates are also expected to exhibit professional and courteous behavior and communication during all interactions with 25 Hours Consulting and any of its representatives. The Company and any of its team members reserve the right to terminate service without notice if it is deemed that the Client’s behavior (or the behavior of anyone representing the Client) is unruly, unsafe, disrespectful, negligent, or in any way compromises or is a detriment to the progress of the project or the safety and well-being of the Team Member.

The Client will reimburse the Company or its agents for any loss/damage they cause to property or equipment, including intangible damage exacted by violating any of these Terms of Service and/or contract terms, which may invalidate the work delivered.

The supply of deliverables and execution of services are provided by the Company on a best endeavors basis. The Company and its representatives are not liable for delays beyond their reasonable control (e.g. including but not limited to inclement weather, natural disasters, family or medical emergencies, car trouble, etc.). The Company and its representatives shall make considerable efforts to meet agreed-upon deadlines where applicable. Again, the Primary Consultant and any representatives of the Company shall not be liable for any delays in meeting their obligations which may be due to causes beyond their reasonable control, including but not limited to: postage/courier delays, delayed response by the Client, war/acts of terrorism, riots, government legislation, industrial action, adverse weather conditions, acts of God, floods, fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, property damage, family or medical emergencies, vehicle trouble, etc.
Recommendations and Claims
25 Hours Consulting may make recommendations as requested based on the Primary Consultant's evaluation and analysis of the Client's content (i.e. webpage(s), site content, copy, etc.). Certain revisions may be outside of 25 Hours' scope of services. In these cases, 25 Hours will not be responsible for executing the recommendations. Furthermore, recommendations are based on professional opinion and experience and are to be treated as suggestions. 25 Hours is not liable for the outcome that results from implementing or altering any recommendations made. 25 Hours makes no claims to Client ROI and will not be held responsible for any lack thereof. The Company makes no guarantees as to the outcomes of its services. Resume preparation, content review, blogging, and other services are strategically designed to increase the likelihood of a beneficial outcome, but do not guarantee such an outcome.
Resume Preparation and Job Search Assistance
The Company will, upon request, provide professional assistance creating, revising, and formatting resumes on an individual basis. These services are subject to the same terms and payment expectations as any other service, without regard to outcome. The Company makes no claim or guarantee that its client will receive interview requests or get hired. The Company only delivers a greater likelihood of these outcomes by improving upon the quality of the resume. Any clients seeking the professional guidance and assistance of 25 Hours Consulting to reformat a resume or help with job board postings retain all responsibility for the ultimate presentation of their information and the resulting outcomes achieved. Once a resume has been completed or job board postings have been customized, it is up to the client to continue searching, monitoring, and responding to any resulting job activity. 25 Hours Consulting does not manage or get involved in the job search process beyond ensuring the initial marketability of its client. Furthermore, if changes are requested after payment is received for the completion of this service, another billable service may commence, depending on the degree of change necessary. Resume preparation and job board posting services may be eligible for inclusive revisions within the scope and time-frame of the current project, the extent and quantity of which shall remain at the discretion of the Company. Failure to obtain an interview or land a position will not in any way reflect upon the Company.
25 Hours Consulting does not provide graphic design, website development, follow-up, reporting, or direct contact services to its Clients. Services will not extend beyond what is advertised on the 25 Hours website, unless a written exception is noted in the contract. Clients are responsible for executing their own reporting, follow-up, and client communication following execution of 25 Hours' services.
25 Hours Consulting values its clients' privacy. We will never sell, rent, or otherwise compromise your information to third parties. All payments are secure and the details of your projects will remain private, unless you give us permission to share them. If the Company wishes to highlight your project for purposes of illustration or promotion, your permission will be requested. Whenever possible, we keep specific identities anonymous unless otherwise discussed by the Company and the Client.
Changes to Packages
If a monthly Client wishes to swap services within their package, add, or subtract services, notification must be provided to 25 Hours in writing within 30 days of the Client's monthly billing date. If the number of services remains the same, pricing will remain the same and the contract language will be amended. If the quantity of services increases or decreases, the pricing will be adjusted and the contract/invoice amended accordingly.
Prices & Terms
All prices shown within the Company’s price list, on the website, or elsewhere listed in print are subject to change without notice. Prices and promotional offers listed in print or elsewhere are subject to expiration at any time without notice. The Primary Consultant reserves the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any time, without notice.
The above terms and conditions constitute the full terms of any work agreement made between you (the Client) and 25 Hours Consulting, LLC or any of its representatives. By signing a contract for services, you agree to these terms, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless 25 Hours Consulting, LLC, their agents, heirs and assigns.
