(b) I expect my clients to be communicable for the entirety of the week. You’re welcome to take calls, and go about your day while I design, but if questions arise, I do need responses within one hour at max. If I’m designing, and haven’t heard back from you in over an hour, I will move forward with the said designs and you will loose the option to give edits on that section. I don’t want this to ever happen, so please be attentive! Please let me know if you have things going on, or appointments while we’re on our first call of the day so that I know when I can expect you to be busy.

The client can also choose to launch on their own terms if their timeline is geared towards a specific date or other reasons, and releases the Company Service Provider from the responsibility to launch the new website that’s been created.
(e) The VIP Week is a partnership and collaboration and both parties must work together to complete this project efficiently.
