The purpose of your website is more than likely to attract new clients or customers to your business, organization, project, or product. First impressions are important, especially when you consider that the average web user is willing to initially invest a mere 2-3 seconds of their time when assessing what it is you do and whether or not they should be interested. Nothing spoils a first impression like broken links, pages that load slowly, or a whole site that won’t load at all.
Website maintenance is often seen as an ancillary and unneeded expense—until it isn’t. Remember first impressions? Websites are finely tuned pieces of technology, and as such, require a bit of regular maintenance to keep them running properly. A website maintenance plan can help.
We’ve been working on the web for a long time. During that period we’ve picked up more than our share of development languages. We spend a lot of time each month keeping ourselves up to speed on the latest developments in the field of web design.
There’s a lot of different technologies and platforms a modern website can be built on. Thankfully, we’re well versed in many of them. Take a look at our list below and feel free to send questions if you don’t see what you’re looking for.
While we work regularly with a variety of different content management platforms, we have a certain affinity for the WordPress framework. With nearly a decade of WordPress development experience, we understand the ins and outs of this full featured CMS.
The WordPress development team regularly releases updates to enhance and protect the content management system. These are designed to keep your site at the forefront of CMS functionality and one step ahead of those who might be looking to exploit or damage it.
While we’re quite adept at working with WordPress, we offer a series of website maintenance and retainer programs to our clients irregardless of the technology stack their website is built on. For a commensurate monthly expense, we provide an array of services designed to help protect your site from unwanted and exploitative attention while making sure your website is doing what it does best.
The matrix below gives a broad overview of our website maintenance services; what you can expect on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis; and the four most common plans our clients take advantage of.
The nice thing about our maintenance plans are that your allotted hours can be used for other services, not just website maintenance. Need a new page on your site? No problem. Need a few new links on a page? We’ve got you. We’ll just switch a few things around and use those hours to cover the changes you need to make.
Don’t see quite what you’re looking for? Not a problem. We also offer custom website retainer plans designed to specifically target the areas you need the most help in.
