Do I need website maintenance?

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 updated regularly.

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.

What does it cost?

We have three options:

  • Ad-hoc / Pay As You Go website support
    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 weekly website backups,  software & security updates and core system updates and the cost starts from £90.00 for three months.

  • Monthly website maintenance & content support packages
    This option provides weekly website backups,  software & security updates, core system updates, fixes or any type of content changes and phone support and the cost starts from £105.00 for three months. Additional time is then charged at a reduced 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 update your website without requests from you, ensuring systems like Joomla or Wordpress are kept up to date, along with any plugins or extensions.

Benefits of a monthly maintenance packages

  • Priority on requests
  • 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
