For the first time in the 10 years since I started Media Manor, as a small service helping local people, I’ve recently raised my prices. My new hourly rate, from October 2022, is now £30 per hour, chargeable in 15-minute intervals (for example, a fix within 15 minutes will only cost £7.50).

Even though my new rates are still less than many of my competitors have been charging for years, I’ve created a set of low-cost monthly or annual payment options to provide even more value to anyone choosing to place their business and trust with me (please see below).

Please note you don’t have to sign up for any of the plans at all if you’re within a 5-mile radius of Blandford Forum, Dorset. You can just pay my going rate whenever you use my services. But if you’re a regular client, you may find yourself actually saving money over the year, as well as having additional products and services available to you.

For example, the extra you would pay for just 6 hours of my time on no plan would cover the Bronze Plan subscription for a year.

Here is a table showing this and the other break-even points, based on my hourly rate…

Payment PlanBreakeven Point (Hours)Equivalent to
Bronze6One 1-hour visit every 2 months
Silver8Two 1-hour visits a quarter
Gold12One 1-hour visit a month

… and that doesn’t even take into account any savings on my training products and fixed-priced services or other benefits you receive for being a plan member.

You can upgrade, downgrade or cancel your plan at any time. To request this, or if you have any questions or concerns, please email me at
