Website Maintenance Plan

I take on the stress of making sure your site is protected, maintained, backed up and secure.

Once a website goes live, it’s important to protect it from potential hacks, breaches and other threats that can bring your site down and get you blacklisted from Google; removing you from all search results and destroying your Google rankings. It’s also important to keep the site plugins, tools and other areas of the site updated and optimized for security, page loading speeds and better SEO rankings.

My monthly plan takes the stress off of you in keeping your site safe and protected. We’re on your side making sure that month to month your site is protected, updated, maintained, backed up and is kicking butt online. And when you’re on our plan, you’ll have a trusted webmaster you can reach out to at any point for help with updates, edits, additions or any potential website issues. Beats waiting on the phone for 30 minutes trying to get ahold of hosting support.

What’s in the Plan?

My maintenance plan includes the following primary services:

1) Updates & Optimization

I keep your site updated, maintained, cleaned and running smooth and fast.

  • WordPress, theme monitored & updated
  • Site cleared and optimized weekly
  • Plugins monitored and updated

2) Monitoring & Protection

Your site is monitored and protected from spam, malware and other evil internet forces.

  • Website scanning & monitoring protection
  • Preventative hack measures & tools in place
  • Firewall (extra security net) available if needed

3) Backups & Restore Points

Your site is backed up weekly in multiple locations and can be restored at any time.

  • Weekly website backups & restore points
  • On & off-site backup locations

4) Monthly Reports

I send you a monthly report of your page views, site traffic and more.

Are there any set up or cancellation fees?

Nope! There are no setup costs and should you ever need to leave the plan, there are no cancellation fees. And the door is always open should you ever leave and decide to come back to the plan.

What is a small update?

A small update refers to a new feature, minor modification, or web development task under 30 minutes in length.

Examples of this might be: change out text or images, updating product information, adding a new plugin, etc.

What does a New Content Job consist of?

New Content refers to a new page, blog post, recipe, product, email (design only), etc., all optimized and mobile friendly.

What happens if I pass on your plan?

If you decide to decline my maintenance plan, there’s a lot that can go wrong. Here are the top reasons I recommend you make sure your website is maintained:

  • The site will not be optimized which leads to poor performance, slow loading times and a gradual loss of Google SEO rankings.
  • The site’s tools, plugins, themes and WordPress itself will quickly go out of date which is the #1 leading cause of website hacks. It’s incredibly important to keep ALL your website tools and plugins up-to-date.
  • You’ll have no backups or restore points so if the site get hacked or breached, you could lose all your content, pages and Google ranking.
  • You won’t get a monthly report overviewing your site traffic, page views, etc.
  • Most importantly, you won’t have us as your trusted webmaster to assist you with quick updates, tweaks, website issues, etc. Often you’ll have to try getting a hold of your hosting company for any assistance.
Does my monthly update time roll over?

Sorry, but that would be a NO. The retainer of hourly updates is just covered for that month.

What if my site gets hacked while on the plan?

If your site should get compromised while you’re on the plan – I’ll take care of cleaning the site and getting everything squared away with Google at no extra cost to you. But have no fear; to date – I’ve had ZERO hacks or breaches with any sites on my maintenance plan.

What if I have updates that require more than 1 hour?

I’ll always try to get your updates done within 1 hour to save you some extra cost but if you have a decent amount of updates that will require more hours, I’ll give you an estimate of time and do that at 10% OFF my hourly rate.

What if I pass on the plan and my site gets hacked?

I can take care of getting the site cleaned for an initial cleanup fee of $250 then I can immediately get your site on my monthly plan to make sure it remains clean and protected from hacks.

How fast do you get to the monthly updates?

I’m pretty darn quick around these parts. I try to get to updates within 24-48hrs.

As a monthly client, you always get top priority compared to clients who aren’t on the plan.
