Consulting price changes for 2013

To all clients and HealthBlogger readers...

For the last 8 years, when I created and HealthBlogger, I have tried to use a business model that kept my consulting fees low, and follow ups free, using a Linkshare program with Vitacost. It is also how I support my research time and keep HealthBlogger free, plus do Pro Bono work, from time to time.
I have no employees and everything is run by yours truly.
This has allowed me over the years to create links to the best products and allowed you to save money. This process generated a small residual for my time, from Vitacost to me.
You always pay the same price, no matter how you order from Vitacost.  Vitacost over the years has changed the deal with Linkshare and recently has lowered the percentage in the Linkshare Program, and altered all my links, a real nightmare to fix.  I have 8 years of blogs that contain links.
I also have trouble getting people to use my links, when ordering, just human nature at work.  Not only that, but Vitacost continually e-mails their customers with the goal of having you order, direct with them, leaving me out of the Linkshare Program.  I understand their corporate strategy, and I still love Vitacost, but I must compensate to make my practice viable, in this changing environment.
To solve this and stay in practice, I have changed my fees as follows.

New client consultations: $250.00 at time of consult, payable by check, PayPal, CCD or Debit Card.  No paper billing.

Program follow ups and or direct e-mail or phone questions: $50.00, payable by check, PayPal, CCD or Debit Card.  No paper billing.
Payments can be done on this page using the Buy Now Button.

As always, thanks to all of you who make sure you use my links, before ordering, using my links helps me keep HealthBlogger free, and stay on the cutting edge of alternative health care, making sure you all benefit from what I discover, along the way.

Profits from these recommendations are used to keep HealthBlogger free to those who read and appreciate the time and research that goes into these posts. It has been my experience over the last 35 years that if I offer reports and research without product recommendations, you will most likely pay more at the local health food store, and may not get the right product or the quality you would expect. I only recommend companies I respect and order from myself. I consider this a value added service that I offer along with the research.  If you find this a conflict of interest, please don't order from my links.
