Hourly Billing Rate Changes

As of today, April 1, 2011 Acorn Internet Services, Inc. is raising billable hourly rates by $10 an hour across the board.

This hourly adjustment applies to all hourly rates in all of our departments, including but not limited to:

  • Support
  • Pre-Development
  • Minor Development
  • Development
  • Professional Client Services
  • Marketing Services

Existing Customer Requests

Any requested work that is currently in progress on or before 12:01 am on April 1st, 2011 will be billed at the old billing rates.

Any new work requested after 12:01 am on April 1st, 2011 will be billed at the new billing rates.

A Note from Mark and Lisa, Co-Founders of Acorn IS

We are highly conscious of our clients’ budgets and we understand the challenges of running a business. During the past few years of economic struggle, we have kept our rates consistent with those at the end of 2005. We did this to assist our clients throughout this difficult time. We have given much consideration to the amount of this adjustment, deciding on a $10 an hour increase. Although a minor adjustment, it is one that continues to keep our costs below other providers in our industry.
