Because a Website won't magically fix itself

A Lot of Work went into Your Website

Don't let this happen!

Frequently Asked

It's a Website. Just set-it and forget-it, right?

This is a limited example, but if your business relies on a delivery vehicle, how often do you maintain it - once a month, every 3 months or never?

"Website Maintenance" is not a gimmick service. Unless you have some coding skills and can manage a Web server, this service is essential to keeping your online presence functioning. Your Website is a 24/7 billboard for your services and products, able to generate substantially more profit than any other type of advertising. Software patches, updates, even the occasional Web server upgrade keep a Website functioning and secure.

A 'set-it and forget-it' attitude always results in avoidable grief and frustration.

  • Hacked - to spread their messages, prospering underground communities prey on Websites with out-dated code frameworks. After thousands of visitors see the new (and defaced) page, that business brand and credibility is instantly damaged.
  • "Page not found." This standard auto-generated message is displayed when the Web server can't 'find' page content. Most potential customers will simply look elsewhere for that service or product.
  • Search Engine blacklisted - the Website has been flagged by search engines as a security risk, typically due to a non-existent secure socket layer certificate (SSL) or reports of malicious content.

All of these issues are corrected within hours on a managed Website.

Still not convinced? Billions, not millions, of people have mobile access to the Web. If your Website is not properly maintained, chances are high you're losing valuable potential customers to your competitors. And without customers, you're out of business. How much is that worth?

Why can't my secretary do it?

HTML has significantly advanced since the days of being the only method to build a Web page. We now have almost as many coding 'flavors' as Baskin-Robbins; HTML5, PHP, CSS3, JavaScript, Ruby, Perl, and on and on. If your employee has the skills to create something that will WOW Web-savvy visitors, ride that train until it derails!

Not maintaining your Website is kind of like never changing the oil in your delivery truck - when it breaks down, a competitor will happily make those missed deliveries to your old customers.

If you chose to simply ignore your Website, just keep in mind, there's no secret sauce - your Website will not magically update itself, thwart hackers or make content more appealing. Someone has to manage text and images that appear on a page, someone has to update the codebase and someone has to keep the hosting server secure.

What are the benefits of a Website Maintenance plan?

Website Maintenance has two components; "Maintain" and "Manage." Maintain covers the back-end security aspects of a Website, such as backups and code updates. Manage primarily covers content, which is the 'message' you want visitors to see.

  • If your pages contain 'buy-me-now' messages that are confusing due to grammatical and sentence structure issues, professional copywriting can establish much needed legitimacy and make page content easier-to-consume by Humans and search engines.
  • Every page of your Website should do something to convert a reader into a buyer. This typically happens through call-to-action messages. Professional graphic design and slogans are placed prominently to improve product and service visibility.
  • Website framework and Web server updates now happen at least once a month.
  • Your Website was hacked! Regular backups (daily, weekly or monthly) of all Website files and databases ensure a full restore in under an hour.
  • And a lot more!
Did you know...software updates and security patches are rolled out to your Web server many times a year, and in most cases these require user input to complete. Your Web hosting company is not responsible for installing these updates.

Choose a Website Maintenance Plan below that best fits your budget and Website needs.

Why should I trust you to work on my Website?

For over 20 years I've been working in the Website Development and Graphic Design industries, both full of extremely talented people. So it's really challenging to keep up with not only the competition, but always evolving technology.

  • As mentioned in my Privacy Policy, I do not store client log-in credentials. If you hire me to maintain your Website and Web server, create a unique log-in. When your Website Maintenance plan expires, simply delete my account. Never share your Website or server log-in credentials with anyone!
  • I don't use smoke and mirrors or techno-talk to give the impression a lot of work needs to be done. When you contact me with a problem, I briefly outline what I believe the cause is. After some research I provide a straightforward solution.
  • I offer free marketing suggestions. As a by-product of working on your Website, I have some insight into your business, which allows me to make suggestions that significantly improve the user experience and your return on investment.

I never hesitate to remind potential clients, you can do it yourself. Hiring me is not unlike hiring a handyman - with the right tools and training, you could hang that door too. It might not close, but at least you looked good doing it!
