Maintenance Options

I can create website for you but it’s always going to need consistent attention. Not everyday but it should be checked monthly for updates. Websites need updating regularly for security reasons. Their are new updates released all the time for WordPress, themes and plugins. If updates are ignored that can allow bugs and hackers to enter your website. Once they gain access it’s very difficult to remove and recover the website. This can lead to needing to redo the entire website. In order to prevent that I offer three different maintenance packages below.

  •  
  • Software Maintenance
  • $20 /per month
  • WordPress Version Update (if available)

View details on the individual Packages below.

Software Maintenance Package

This is the basic package that I strongly recommend for all websites. It’s very important to keep the software up to date. By software I mean the Content Management System – WordPress, plugins and themes. This will ensure that the websites features and security are functioning properly at all times. There are usually multiple updates a month that are released for WordPress, themes and plugins. If these updates aren’t made on a regular basis it can leave openings for bugs and hackers to enter the website. Once threats enter the website files they are difficult to remove. This could lead to a complete renovation of the website. To protect your website I offer a Software Maintenance Package that includes the following.

  • I will check the following on the 1st and 15th of every month.
    • WordPress Version updates if available
    • Theme updates
    • Plugin updates
    • Test all plugins and special features to make sure they are functioning properly. Fix any issues that may have occurred during the update process.
    • Check the website in all browsers and responsive views. Fix any issues that may have occurred during the update process.
  • I will provide a report at the end of each month with a break down of the updates made.

Amount: $20/per month

Payment Plan 1: $120 for 6 Months
Payment Plan 2: $240 for 12 Months

Maintenance & Support Package

This package includes the software maintenance package and 1 hour of support. The 1 hour of support can be used for any website changes. Such as adding/editing content, images, rotator images, calendar events, memberships and etc. You would send me an email with the details of the changes you want made. I will track the time that it takes to make the changes. I will notify you when changes are made and the amount of support time that is left. Once the 1 hour mark is reached there are two optional available. First option is I can continue to make changes and you will receive an invoice at the end of the month for the additional changes priced at my hourly rate. Second option is we can schedule me to make the changes the following month so they will be covered by the 1 hour of support. The Maintenance & Support Package includes the following.
