Having a great website is more than just about designing it, building it and putting it live. To be truly successful it needs to be managed with regular content updates, SEO optimised, software and security upgrades installed, back-ups maintained and pages reviewed to ensure the site is working efficiently for the end user.
A website is an essential and useful business tool, but only if people can find it!
If you don't have the time or resources let us help with our website maintenance and support packages which include:
- Content updates
- Managed website hosting
- Website backups
- Search engine optimisation (SEO)
- And anything else you might need in the day to day running of your website!
What systems do you work with?
We work with a range of systems from Joomla, Wordpress, Adobe Experience Manager, Magnolia, Magento, Presta Shop, Tridion
Do I REALLY need website maintenance?
Yes. Competition is fierce and your website needs to rank well for your target audience to find you. The most important way of doing this is to keep it up to date, and not just with the technology its built with, but the content must be recent.
If your latest news or blog post is from a year ago, people may think you've not been keeping up with the latest developments and the search engines, like Google, will rank your competitor’s website higher if their news is more recent than yours.
Its time consuming keeping on top of things but that’s where we can help. Send us your update and we'll do it for you. That’s not all though, we’ll include managed website hosting, take regular website backups, provide web design services or help with Search Engine Optimisation to get and keep your website above your competitors.
What does it cost?
There are two options:
Ad-hoc / Pay As You Go website support
Pay an hourly rate of £35 for any required system updates, content changes, search engine optimisation or any other type of changes/fixes required on your website as and when you need.
There is a minimum one hour charge of £35 for any type of update, however, we will accrue the time spent on your account over a calendar month. This means if you use less than an hour you will be charged the full £35 but anytime over the hour is charged by the minute, for example an extra 30 minutes would cost you £17.50, we do not bill by the hour once the initial hour is used up.
Monthly website maintenance packages
A monthly plan is more cost effective if you have frequent updates. We will update your website without requests from you, ensuring systems like Joomla or Wordpress are kept up to date, along with any plugins or extensions.
Our monthly option provides website hosting, weekly website backups and two hours per month for updates, fixes or any type of content changes, the cost starts from £69 per month. Additional time is then charged at a reduced rate of £30 per hour, charged by the minute.
There are benefits to our monthly maintenance package you won’t get if you pick Ad-Hoc:
- Priority on requests
- Managed website hosting
- Backups stored safely off-site
- New features and functions added as and when they are needed
- We'll inform you if things are getting a little outdated and help with updating content with your input
- Advice on improvements to your site as we keep abreast of the latest innovations
