Retainer-based services

Charges for services on retainer are deducted from the outstanding balance at the discounted retainer rates until the balance reaches zero and then billed additionally at the discounted retainer rates for further services requested during the month. The basic retainer is billed at the beginning of the month, with additional charges invoiced at the end of the month. An open retainer balance does not roll over from month-to-month, but if there is an open balance at the end of the month, I will search the Korean-language news for business intelligence related to your company, field, competitors or other topics/keywords you’ve provided me and prepare and send you an English report summarizing that information in the first week of the following month. The effort on this business report will be in proportion to the amount of your unused balance so that you will always get full value for your retainer, even in months that you do not otherwise use up your budget. I will gladly entertain other suggestions to ensure you receive as much value as possible from my services. On my monthly invoice to you, I will itemize the services provided. Retainer services are provided month-to-month and may be cancelled at any time.
