Our pricing process is simple and transparent. You buy a block of hours and when time is spent on your project it gets pulled from that block. 

When the time in a block is used up, we'll invoice for another one if there's still work to be done. You can cancel at any time for any reason.

Blocks typically last 3 to 5 weeks depending on the weekly cadence we establish together. Unused hours can be postponed for up to 6 months if you need a few weeks to make technical changes or work on other projects.




20–25 hours

This is where most companies start. The first block usually follows one of the 25-hour Quickstart project outlines. Blocks include 20 hours when not part of a Quickstart.

These blocks are for people who want regular access to advice about analytics tools or best practices. Also great for startups that only need a light part-time analyst.



40 hours

At around 10 hours per week, significant progress to analytics systems can be made every week.

We'll help you understand your customers by making improvements to your analytics stack, analyzing your existing data, or both.



65 hours

You'll feel like a full stack analytics expert has joined your team. 

At this level, we can maintain your whole analytics stack or take on large scale projects to roll out world class analytics for your company or customers.


Need a proof of concept or formal proposal?

We offer a one-time trial rate of $500 for 3–6 hours. During that time we can scope out a larger project proposal or audit your systems to recommend next steps that may or may not involve help from Bard.

Notes on Pricing

Meetings are logged at $200/hour regardless of the block size. Essential meetings are logged the same as independent work, that includes kickoffs, wrap ups, and recurring check ins for retainer customers.

The rates above are for remote analyst work only. That includes planning, consultations, implementation guidance, and testing (including code examples and light debugging), report creation in analytics and BI tools, writing SQL.

Software development like Python, R, custom ETL pipelines, Javascript visualizations or code implementations are things we can help with and will be estimated separately based on the scope of work and expertise needed for the project.
