Thinking differently

You’ve been given a completely free file which is an ideal starter solution for 90% + of businesses.

To build this from scratch would take at least 50 hours, which is time that you have to charge your clients for. Not only is that a cost, but it delays the time at which your clients can start using it.

They have come to you because they need a solution and they need it now.

By the way, although this would take at least 50 hours to build it yourself, it has taken at leat 200 hours (a full year) of extremely hard work to get NautilusFM to a point where it works the way it does.

Something to show clients

You can now show potential clients a fully developed solution so that they can actually ‘kick the tyres’ and feel confident that you can deliver something that will actually work for their business.

Because NautilusFM uses a custom theme you can easily re-skin it in just  a few minutes to whatever color palette your client likes.

Expert Development Help

You have access to the developer who not only knows NautilusFM inside and out, but who has also developed hundreds of solutions for all types of businesses around the world for the past 33 years.

I’ve also written multiple books on FileMaker, published hundreds of blog articles and videos and co-hosts the Fireside FileMaker podcast which has almost reached 40K downloads.

Have them Google me.

I am available to consult and help you with any, and all, aspects of your projects whether that is teaching you new techniques or doing actual coding to solve a specific problem/requirement.

How do I pay for that?

You don’t have to; that’s the beauty of it and no, I’m not working for free. You simply explain to your client that there’s no charge to them for the starter solution, but if they would like its creator to help you with their project, there is a $1,500 fee which is what you pay me and you get 10 hours of my time for that.

10 hours might not seem like a lot of time but I work extremely fast so it’s more like 15.

The client wins because they’ve saved thousands. You win because you’ve got my expert help and you haven’t had to pay for it. I win because I’ve made some money for all the work that I’ve put in and I get the satisfaction of seeing you complete a successful project.

The big win, though, is that I get the satisfaction of seeing a successful project completed, using NautilusFM  which is the culmination of 33 years of work and is my legacy achievement.

I’m not sure I could sell that idea!

You are welcome to bring me in on the conversation/meeting with the client. They will realise that they are talking to an expert and I’m 100% sure they will see the $1500 fee as a really good investment.

I’m also going to help you get a Yes. I’m very good at that too!  But, if I don’t, there is no charge for my involvement so it’s a risk free proposition for you.

Are you available to consult?

Yes, of course. One hour is $200 and 5 hours is $750, payable in advance.

To get in touch, email me and I’ll set up a Zoom session so that we can chat. No charge.
