I’m trying out a new service.
A lot of my Arduino project building business comes from people who have an urgent project and got in way over their head. They’ve selected components, started learning about the Arduino ecosystem and begun learning to code.
Then Life Happens. The project has to be pushed back since they don’t have time to learn what they need to, or other issues come up, so they turn to me to redo the job from scratch, or clean it up.
However, a fair number of people are just stuck on a particular problem and could continue if they became “unstuck.” You can turn to online forums in this case, but they can be hit or miss. Sometimes you get the perfect answer, other times people are rude to newcomers, snarky, make you feel unwelcome, or just give bad info.
So here’s our new service. I’ll answer your Arduino questions for a set fee. You will receive polite, respectful, and timely help at reasonable rates.
$25 for a single question.
$100/month for one question per day or $200/month for unlimited questions.
Now, we can’t write custom sketches at these prices, but we can point out where a sketch is wrong or should be rewritten. If we feel we can’t do your question justice, you will receive a refund.
Granted, for some of the more unusual or newer products, we may have to do substantial research, and there are likely going to be a few questions we will have to decline and refund your money because proprietary information that we don’t have access to can be involved.
But I feel it’s worth a try. I know there are people that need questions answered who aren’t getting the assistance they deserve.
So let’s hear it. What do you think?
