We then put very cheap SEO and maintenance folks to ensure your rankings remain at the top, and your site runs blazing fast. Each of these people bill at different rates, so you get maximum bang for your buck. When you hire anyone at Quinji, you hire the team resources. You will not suffer if someone is not available. We have the breadth of skills and depth of resources to ensure your project is on time and on budget. I am native US English speaker and this feedback is given to me by more than 20 different clients which they found a plus point while making conversation when they are outsourcing their work for better communication and understanding. Always available on Skype for voice or text during my working hours. I completed 2600+ hours on odesk with 4.96 star feedback out of 5 up to June 2014.
