Website Maintenance Without Any of the Frustration!
What does your car, computer, smartphone, major appliances, and your website all have in common?
They all need to be properly maintained, or they will become useless!
Taking care of your website is an integral part of running your business. You benefit by keeping your website updated, functioning properly, and looking as if it's current; in both content and design. Primary benefit of maintaining your website is that it costs less to maintain a website than it does to fix what could be a very time consuming problem, or having to rebuild the site from the ground up.
Your website is fundamental to the success of your overall online marketing strategy; it cannot be launched and then ignored. Since most people often search online for a company’s website and/or social media sites before taking further action, your website becomes the first impression a potential new client has of your business.
As an extension of your business, it's important that your website meets the viewer's expectations! An outdated or poorly functioning website is a major problem for your brand and the image you want to project to potential new clients, as well as your existing clients and customers.
Keeping your website up to date can be time consuming and tedious. Not all business owners have the required time it takes to properly maintain and/or update a website, yet this is something that MUST be done on a regular basis; Especially if it's a WordPress site.
Why not turn this required task over to someone who's experienced at maintaining WordPress websites?
The choice is yours. Fit website maintenance into your work schedule, or put a professional on a retainer for your on-going website maintenance.
If you're interested in having a professional on retainer to properly take care of your website, contact us to get a quote and get started today!
Costs are based on the size of your website, the number of plugins being used, and the frequency of additions/edits/changes that will be done on a monthly basis. Discounts available for Quarterly or Semi-annually plans.
Having a professional on retainer is definitely less expensive than the time you would be wasting trying to properly maintain the site while running your business!
What's included in the WordPress maintenance plan?
While the number of hours each month will vary, regular maintenance includes, but is not limited to:
- Database Optimization
- Security Scans
- WordPress Core, Plugin and Theme Updates
- Adding/Changing Content and/or Images (supplied by client)
- Unlimited Email Support
- Working with your Web Host Tech Support and 3rd Party Developers on Your Behalf
- Website Restoration (if needed)
Maintenance Option 2
This is what we call a “Reactive Plan” — for when you’re not on a maintenance retainer and suddenly find yourself in need of:
- content changes and/or additions
- links added/removed
- images replaced and/or new ones created
- something on your site needs to be fixed
- other one-off projects
The Pay-As-You-Go plan is billed by the minute, instead of the typical quater-hour increments. This means that if your work order takes only 10 minutes to complete, instead of paying in typical quarter hour increments you’ll pay only for the 10 minutes! (Note: The above mentioned Quarterly or Semi-annually Discounted Subscription rates do not apply to the Pay-As-You-Go plan.)
Considering the high frequency of WordPress and plugin upgrades, if you’re not taking the time to keep everything up-to-date, then selecting a made-for-your-site Maintenance plan will be to your benefit; Both for your business and your budget! The cost of maintaining your site is a LOT less expensive than having to repair a broken site, or replace a hacked site.
About WordPress Plugin Upgrades:
WordPress plugins are created by multiple authors and are consistently updated to newer versions to comply with the latest version of WordPress, or to address security issues and bugs. It is not guaranteed that the mandated updates to the core files and/or plugins will not break the website, or that plugins will continue to function if not updated — or stop functioning after an update. What IS guaranteed is that if the site broke while we’re doing an upgrade, we’ll fix it!
Rush and/or weekend orders that must be completed on the same day the order was placed will be billed at the hourly rate of $155.00.
All work orders are filled on a First Come, First Served basis once payment has been received (via PayPal).
Note: Updates do not include projects such as adding advanced features or redesigning the site.
What if I need to cancel my service?
You can cancel anytime — No questions asked! Cancellation of any recurring service can occur at any time after your first one month (30 days) of service. Unused days will not be refunded after cancellation, however, your maintenance plan will continue until end of the plan month.
Pricing & Payments:
The Website Maintenance Subscriptions are recurring plans, invoiced via PayPal. You have the option of being invoiced Quarterly or Semi-annually (save on a semi-annual plan).
Subscribing to a website maintenance plan is your consent to invoice for the services rendered under your ongoing website care retainer.
Additional charges may apply if someone else designed the site, or if it’s been worked on by several people and now takes an Engineering Degree just to wade through all of it.
"The maintenance package that I have used has saved my site more times than I can count! I have been spammed by every single country on the planet and before I signed up for the maintenance package, I received hundreds of spam messages every single day. Not only has Terri managed to reduce that number to zero, she updates all of the plugins, performs the software updates every time WordPress releases an update, and she even writes blogs for me with relevant and fresh content for my site! Whenever I have a question for Terri, she always responds to me right away and frankly, I don’t think she charges enough money for the maintenance plan! I get to run my business with total peace of mind that my site is being 100% taken care of."
