The full line of services from the Excel_Geek

I've been having a great time and have cranked out a great many Excel_Geek $50 Projects, and based upon the response that I've gotten from happy customers and from other visitors to the blog, I've decided to roll out three new services, so here, in a nutshell, are the (now) four services offered by the Excel_Geek:

  1. Excel_Geek $50 Projects - Price? $50 flat fee. An oldie, but a goodie...the original...the Excel_Geek $50 Project. Got a problem you think that could perhaps be solved using Excel? Send it to me and I'll solve it and send you the file containing the solution, complete with copious documentation and clarifying notes. Not everyone has the time, energy, or desire to post their Excel-related issues on a user forum, waiting, hoping, and praying that someone will not only answer the question correctly, but understandably. (Note: Excel_Geek retains all intellectual property and/or other rights to the files created under the Excel_Geek $50 Project program. Every attempt will be made to ensure that the privacy, confidentiality, and proprietary information of the requesters of Excel_Geek $50 Projects is in no way violated.) Why wait, hope, and pray when you can get your answer lickity-split from Excel_Geek for only $50. Come on...it's $50. Got $50?

  2. Excel_Geek Blog_Mail - Price? FREE. Subscribers to the Excel_Geek Blog_Mail service will have delivered to their email inbox each and every new post I make on http://excelgeek.blogspot.com. No need to visit the blog each day. No need to figure out what an RSS feed is or how to use it. Every time I've done something new or have something new to say, you'll get it in your email. Sign up today! It's FREE!

    Guess what? This is now a whole lot easier (for you and for me). I'm all set up on FeedBlitz now, so all you've got to do to get Excel_Geek in your email is subscribe using the form near the top of the left column on this page.

  3. Excel_Geek Insiders - Price? $39.95 per year. Subscribers to the Excel_Geek Insiders service will receive Excel_Geek Blog_Mail PLUS receive (as emailed attachments) the source files for all Excel_Geek $50 Projects completed throughout the year. That's right. You'll get for just $39.95 annually each and every file that the Excel_Geek created for someone else for $50 each. (Note: any and all private, confidential, and/or potentially proprietary information of the original requesters of the Excel_Geek $50 Projects will be removed from the files, replaced with suitable data where applicable.) Sign up today for Excel_Geek Insiders!

  4. Excel_Geek Private Projects - Price? Case by case bid at $50 $100 per hour. Like the idea of having the Excel_Geek take care of your Excel-related problems, but don't like the idea of the Excel_Geek sharing your solution -- even stripped of any private, confidential, or potentially proprietary information -- with Excel_Geek Insiders subscribers? Under the Private Project program, the Excel_Geek will do your projects privately and will not include the source files in the Excel_Geek Insiders program content. (Note: Excel_Geek retains all intellectual property and/or other rights to the files created under the Excel_Geek $50 Project program, but also issues customers under this program unlimited license to use, modify, transfer, and/or sell the files and/or source code, either as produced by Excel_Geek or modified, as customer sees fit. Excel_Geek warrants that the files produced under this program will not be made available to third parties without express written consent of the customer. Further, every attempt will be made to ensure that the privacy, confidentiality, and proprietary information of the customers of this program is in no way violated.) Feel better? Submit a Private Project request now!

RE: Excel_Geek Insiders

Does this subscription make available all past projects as well as the current year's?

Excel_Geek said...

Hmmmm... Ya know, I never thought about it like this before.

What if someone sees a project I've done in the past and wants it? Could they subscribe to Insiders for $39.95 and back date the subscription to get that project (as well as the rest done during the calendar year following that project)?

I don't see why not, though I'd say if someone wants to back date it more than a year, they should have to subscribe for two years, so they're at least a current subscriber when they subscribe...confusing a bit, but I get it.

Do you?

Interesting...I would probably be interested in back dating the subscription or working a solution if I could see a list of the historical projects I could obtain. Versus just starting now and going forward. Is there a master list you can display?

Excel_Geek said...

I'll work on that...

It would be nice to have access to the archived project, with a fixed price for each previous years...

One or 2 examples probably be a good incentive to signing up for both the yearly subscription and/or to use the $50 dollar solution for a problem.
I've just signed up. Too curious to wait.

If you see a project I've done, no matter how long ago, let me know and I'll get you the file if you're a subscriber. I really need to work on a web store type feature.

Hey Excel_Geek,

Great website. I wondered if you'd be interested in promoting our FREE Microsoft Office Training Manuals.

Feel free to download, print, email and do whatsoever you wish with them. I'd ask for $50, but as they're free to everyone a link to our website would be great.


Kind regards
