Do I need website maintenance services?
Having a website is great and almost mandatory in this day and age, it gives potential customers insight into your business, where you are, when you're open and of course what you sell. But its only useful if people can actually find it!
There is so much competition out there you need to be sure your website ranks well for your target customers. There are many elements to making this happen but one of the most important is ensuring its kept up to date, and not just from the technology its built with, the content must be recent.
If your latest news posting is from a year ago people may think you've not been keeping up with the latest developments and the search engines, such as Google, will almost certainly rank your competitors website higher if their news is more recent than yours.
We know it takes time to publish updates to your website, you may only access it once or twice a year and its often a pain trying to find the username and password your website developer emailed you, and thats where we can help. Send us your update and we'll do it for you, but thats not all, we can include managed website hosting, take regular website backups, provide web design services or help with Search Engine Optimisation to get your website above your competitors.
What does it cost?
We have two options:
- Ad-hoc / Pay As You Go
This works well for many of our customers giving you the option to 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 which 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 continue to round up for each change.
- Monthly website maintenance packages
This option provides website hosting, website backups, system upgrades and time each month for updates, fixes or any type of content changes, the cost starts from £59 per month. Additional time is then charged at our discounted rate of £30 per hour, again charged by the minute.
A monthly plan is more cost effective if you have frequent updates and means we will upgrade your website without requests from you, ensuring systems like Joomla or Wordpress are kept up to date, along with any plugins or extensions, essential to help keep your site secure from security issues.
