Why flat fees? That's our guarantee to you, our client, to finish the projects we start, no matter what it takes to get your project closed on time. We don't nickel and dime you... and we don't give up on a clearance or project.
The hard truth about this business is that sometimes a particularly difficult clearance comes along that takes two weeks, to as much as six months, to get done. We've got your back. If you were paying hourly, it could run hundreds of dollars for a single clearance. That's why we go with a flat fee. To save you the hassle. To save you the bucks.
Please feel free to give us a call, or email us, if you need to know more. We are confident that we can fill your music clearance needs. We're here to get the job done for you.
