Amplify's Dashboard Dials

The Heart of Amplify

The central dial is without doubt the most important device in the whole of Amplify. It confirms your retainer's allowance, usage, progression and efficiency in an incredibly simple dial, absorbable in a flash. Remaining hours are displayed explicitly in the centre and include any rollover brought forward from last month (if you want to use the rollover feature). You don't have to calculate anything. The orange dial begins each month at 100% (all this months pre-purchased hours + any rollover from last month). As the month, and the work you do for your client progresses the orange dial decreases. Concurrently, the white dial grows with chronological progression of the current month (empty on the 1st and 100% full by the end of the month).

Combining these 2 dials gives your clients a powerful comparison of the rate you're using their hours against progression of the current month, illustrating how efficiently your time and their money are being used. Over the course of each month, the rate the orange circle is consumed should mirror the rate at which the white circle builds. If the orange consistently leaves a gap to the white, you have a great illustration to suggest they up their hours.

The dashboard also boasts 4 smaller supporting dials which bring Amplify's rollover feature into its own. These offer more elaborate information as to the current state of each client's account - ensuring your clients are always incredibly comfortable with the flexibility that rollover gives them.

The first 2 dials are used to illustrate rollover from last month, with the first dial offering a summary of how last month finished and the second explicitly displaying rollover hours - which are at risk if not used within the month they rollover to.

The third dial shows the potential amount of hours each client can accrue for use next month. ie If no more hours are used in the current month they will rollover and be available next month to make the total shown here.

Finally the overtime dial plainly shows how many hours' work you have done past their pre-paid retainer hours to be charged in excess of the retainer at your standard rate.

Learn what you'll need in order to get the Amplify advantage


The only thing you'll absolutely need to rollout Amplify to your clients is Harvest - a beautifully simple time tracking service targeted at creative agencies and freelancers that we've been using for years. (FREE - $12 per month)

The Monthly Retainer Model (optional)

Retained clients pre-pay for a predetermined amount of hours each month which are typically discounted in exchange for the security and reliable revenue they provide. Amplify is an incredible client-reporting tool when it comes to monitoring a retainer and even supports the rollover model, giving your clients full disclosure on where their accounts are at any point-in-time meaning they always, always feel connected and at ease with what you're doing.

Lightroom Mobile (optional)

Lightroom Mobile is the amazing online half of Adobe Lightroom CC - The industry-standard editing & management software for pro photographers. Syncing photography to Lightroom's incredibly capable web service requires a Lightroom CC trial or a paid Adobe Creative Cloud membership which includes the latest versions of Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC ($10 per month).

Adobe ID (optional for clients)

In order for your clients to be able to give realtime feedback with likes and comments on any photo you hold for them in Amplify's Lightroom library, they'll need to get a free Adobe ID (link). They can then sign in from anywhere in the world and feedback instantly into your own Adobe Lightroom software. It's like magic.

The Retainer Model

Everything Simplified. The Retainer Explained.

The Upsides

No Surprises - As well as keeping your design and promo work far more consistent, retainers are great for controlling your clients' variable expenses and making long-term planning far easier as their marketing budget will typically be the same every month.

Better Hourly Rate - The main appeal of retainers is that your client's pre-payment and loyalty are supplemented by a discounted hourly rate.

Full Feedback - Your clients get access to the full 'bells-and-whistles' version of Amplify built for retainers, which gives you succinct reporting on everything they need to know in real-time. If you choose to rollout Deep Scrutiny (coming in V4) incredibly transparent itemised reports are also available anytime, whatever your clients need to know - whether they need updating on the last 15 minutes or every hour spent ever, for a specific project or your entire account - the detail is there.

Flexibility - We understand that creative requirements vary from month to month, so Amplify has been built to offer rollover of one month for any unspent hours, so your clients' work requirements can be variable whilst their costs remain steady. eg If they retain 10 hours per month, you can use 5 hours one month and 15 the next - no problems ...and no extra charges for them. Rollover is optional and can be turned on or off as required.

The Downside

Pre-Paid - Clients will have to pay for each month in advance.

Commitment - Typically your clients are contracted to a rolling agreement subject to a set notice period for cancellation (3 months in this example). Meaning if they decide it's not for them, they'll still be tied in to 3 more payments. On the plus-side, the rollover model Amplify offers means that they can spend those hours over the following 4 months.

Risk of Wastage - As any unspent hours rollover to the next month only, any hours unspent after 2 months of becoming active are wasted. eg Should a client not request any work for 3 months, they have effectively paid for that first month and got nothing in return. As part of the monthly retainer model, this money is not refunded. Don't worry though, Amplify has your back, transparently reporting the threat of wastage with the 'Hours at Risk' dial on the main dashboard. In practice, wastage happens very rarely, but is still typically more cost-effective than the price of fewer hours billed without the retainer discount and your clients were always kept abreast in real-time throughout the month.

Amplify has you covered.
