Looking ahead to 2015


2014 was a record year for Appinstructor. Each week was delightfully busier than the last! In addition to helping families protect their kids from the abuses of technology, we’ve also enjoyed streamlining systems and implementing modern tech at several businesses. Most people these days are juggling multiple devices, email accounts, and cloud services, so the need for simplification is bigger than ever.

Scotty and I honestly believe that we offer the best combination of expertise and friendliness. In order to better reflect the value of our services, our hourly rate is changing to $110. Appointments that have already been booked are not affected by this change.

The Five Pack, which is five prepaid hours at a discounted rate, is $500. This offers a $50 savings. Semesters will continue to be your biggest opportunity for savings. These are no-contract, monthly learning plans: one hour per month for $100 and two hours per month for $180. To learn more about the long-term goals you can accomplish with Semesters, click here.

As you plan your goals for 2015, we hope you consider the ways in which you could save much time and frustration by investing in your own education. We’re confident that we can increase your productivity and protection. See you soon!
