We have clients in both the USA and in far-flung countries (...soon to be Trinidad and Argentina!)
Our esteemed American clients support our international work. They purchase packages of hours for Salesforce projects and support. We spend those fees primarily on airplane tickets to clients and for prospecting trips.
When we contract with an international client, we
- take a plane to visit them (typically three to four weeks)
- offer our services in exchange for
- room and board
- transport to and from the airport
- ...and decent internet.
We work with our American clients even when we’re staying with international clients, often far into the evenings.
Our fees are considerably lower than other consultants with similar levels of expertise and experience. We didn’t ask: What’s the going rate? We instead asked: What do we need to bring in so we can travel to our international clients and serve those in American who might not be able to afford the going rate?
