Should I still contact Ben Albaugh directly regarding business?
Since I will conducting all business under Steep Dev and not Ben Albaugh, I will no longer accept business communication under my personal channels. Instead, please use the following:
email@example.com (2x emergency rate applies)
firstname.lastname@example.org (invoices send from this address)
Reserve a time for a phone or video call at: https://calendly.com/steepdev
Are your rates, maintenance or hosting prices changing?
Rates are not changing until at least January 2020. Steep Dev charges a 10% late fee for invoices not paid after 30 days and 2x normal rate for emergency requests not covered by a maintenance plan.
Are you hiring additional employees or outsourcing?
Not at this time but the long term plan is to keep Steep Dev small and focused. The new structure is a better foundation for providing more value to our clients.
How should we handle your 1099s this year?
All invoices May 1 or later will be under Steep Dev, so for tax purposes you may need to send a 1099 for both Ben Albaugh and Steep Dev.
If you need a W9 for Steep Dev, please request one by emailing email@example.com.
What if I have additional questions?
Please send any additional questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much for your continued support!
