Website Care Plans

Website Care Plans

Our website Care Plans are relatively unsung. We do a lot of work behind the scenes each month to ensure a website presence is kept online, secure and up-to-date. Most people do not realise, or underestimate what goes into keeping safe and secure WordPress websites. We have been delivering WordPress websites since 2007 (longer than most) and have a lot of experience in dealing with its intricacies.

WordPress Optimised

There is a common misconception that WordPress websites are easy to maintain. They may be easier than other systems but are certainly not 'easy'.

We specialise in WordPress and have been working with it as a content management system since 2007. We have created plugins and themes for it. In summary we know it very well.

Our care plans are tailored especially business websites where we can best provide care and support. Our care plans will free up vital time within your business.

What our Care Plans include

Website Maintenance

We have a lot of experience in maintaining WordPress websites and will handle tedious and vital tasks for you such as: WordPress version updates, plugin version updates, security and performance scans, backups, spam cleanups, database optimisations and we will fix issues caused by any system updates.

All-in Support Time

Nearly all of our plans have support time included. Within that allocated support time we will act as an additional team member for you. We'll tackle virtually any task you want us to including design, development, performance improvements, content updates, designing new images and online consultancy.

Monthly Reporting

All of our care plan packages include a monthly report. You will be able to see a rundown of the maintenance, updates, backups and tasks we have performed along with information displaying your rankings displaying your visitors, traffic, keywords and website performance.

Video Training

You will have access to up-to-date video training modules teaching you how to use your website content management system. This also comes with a documentation manual in the form of a searchable reference if you prefer to consume training content in written form.

Off-site Backups

Backups are critical to any website and ideally should be held off-server in case of failure. We endeavour to run periodic backups that provide a rock-solid failsafe in case the worst should happen. We pride ourselves on our off-site backups which really help to offer the ultimate safety.

Security Checks

As with all software, WordPress websites can become a target to those whose intention in life is to do others harm. We perform regular security checks in order to keep your web presence safe from harm along with installing web application firewalls (WAF) and security software.

Performance Optimisation

We use diagnostics tools that to monitor your website performance. This enables us to optimise your website and its database, improving efficiency and website load speed in the process. Note: this is database and application performance optimisation NOT SEO optimisation which can be offered separately.

Upgrade Breakages Covered

Frequently, websites break during the update process, either due to a plugin or theme malfunctioning in some way. Fixing this can be extremely costly as it requires experience in PHP development. We will cover this for you as part of your plan.

Website Restoration

Because we take frequent off-site backups we can restore your website quickly from any of the backups we have taken quickly. Therefore, if the worse case scenario occurs of complete website loss, we still have you covered and can get you back up and running with minimal data loss. We offer a leading solution here involving both on-site and off-site backups.

Business costs in maintaining a website

Websites cost time and money to maintain every month. Here are some monthly averages in keeping your primary online marketing platform optimal:

hrs
Average maintenance hours
(per website)
Average hack attempts
(per website)
hrs
Average staff training hours
(per person)
£
Ave. Developer rate
(per hour)

The above assumes that you really want to take your web presence seriously, you want to actively maintain it, update it and keep it secure. In taking it seriously you will be using staff resources, developer resources and spending time with a progressive, strategic direction upon which you can base key business decisions.
