We get this question asked all the time. Some times our hourly rate is more than other agencies. Our response is, "How long does it take another developer to complete a set of tasks?" In many cases we have had clients come to us and spend 80 hours per month with another agency at $X per hour while Rocket Web is able to complete the same amount of tasks at 25% less hours with better quality. If we are $20 more an hour it's actually still less expensive to go with our hourly rate rather than spend more hours at a cheaper rate. In the Magento world there are no "special" deals - you pay for what you get in the end.
