Client Query

Relatively simple, straightforward projects can be as little as $1,500, whereas longer term, more complicated projects can exceed $5,000. Most of our projects fall somewhere between these two extremes. We do not offer any fixed price packages and we generally avoid templates. Before we can give you an estimate, we need to understand your individual situation. This generally requires a brief conversation about your project goals, timetable, budget, scope, and other issues.

One way to reduce or perhaps eliminate this cost might be by incorporating our real estate services. If you need a retail or office space and you assign REXL Realty as your brokerage then we can get the initial business plan developed as little as $500. 

We are willing to go the extra mile for our clients, but we cannot complete most projects in such a short time-frame. Generally, even “straightforward” business plan, marketing plan, and market research projects take at least 2 to 3 weeks. More involved projects can require several months (or longer) to assure the high level of quality and accuracy that are essential to success.

Possibly. We occasionally work with clients in this situation. You will need to do the "heavy lifting" with the market research (which can be very time consuming), while we limit our role to acting as facilitators and business advisors. This plays to our strengths and keeps your expenses to a minimum. The process typically takes several months, but results in a very strong business plan.

We meet hundreds of small business owners each year, across a wide range of industries and stages. TradeHub is already expanding through investing it's tools, capital and HR for the success of our business partners. However, we always welcome new investors to partner with us. If we mutually agree that TradeHub is a good fit, we can then define search criteria and set up a finders fee arrangement plus a small monthly retainer to cover our expenses. We will perform due diligence on potential companies and introduce you only to the most qualified candidates. Your identity and contact information will be kept strictly confidential.

Business Development Services

These are projects, efforts, programs and activities that are aimed at enhancing the productivity, profitability, growth and sustainability of large private enterprise, mainly companies and other incorporated concerns. Our solutions in this sector focuses on how to help our clients grow and expand their corporations, improve resource utilisation, new product /service introduction, cost reduction, sales volume improvement or other such targets.

We offer practical training, technical assistance or a combination of both to help clients solve their problems / challenges or to expand. Our approach is through conducting diagnostic review and a participatory approach to discuss and agree on problem areas with the client and then design or recommend a tailored solution.

Web design Services

The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will make every effort to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client. For most projects, we try to work within the 3-4 week time-frame. A Simple Wordpress type website can be installed within 48 hours on TradeHub web server. A site like this tradehub.ca will take 5-7 days.  


The cost of a web site varies depending on the site and complexity. A starter website containing a homepage, about page and contact page starts at $219+GST. If you give us a call we will be pleased to discuss with you,  your website design requirements and give you a quotation based on your unique needs. Please check out this page for more info.

In the majority of cases a meeting isn’t necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. We place suggested website designs online via, our  secure testing server for you to view the work in progress. This way we can have regular communication to ensure you are getting exactly what you expect from the TradeHub team.

Project Management Services

The cost of professional project management should be viewed relative to its contribution to the bottom line. Our clients consistently realise a significant return on their investment. By applying the discipline of standard and agile project management to an organisation's key initiatives, we successfully complete complex, deadline-driven projects. Our project managers work on-site and provide an objective, third-party view. Our project managers are PMI certified and therefore globally recognised.

You should consider TradeHUB PM (TPM) if your company lacks the necessary in-house expertise or resources to complete your projects. Some firms are faced with difficult decisions or contentious, third-party relationships that require an objective facilitator. In other cases, a company wants to learn project management best practices to establish a template for continuing success. Whatever your needs, TPM’s services will ensure expert execution of your cross-functional projects.

While TPM often uses applications such as Microsoft Project or Office Suite, we do not endorse specific project management software packages, and instead choose the appropriate tool for each client’s needs. However, tradeHub do have it's preferred PM software installed at https://pms.tradehub.ca
