Making sure your website is protected, optimized, backed up and expertly cared for.

STARTING AT

Once your website is live, it’s not only important to protect it from malware and hacks that can take your site down and affect your Google rankings but it’s also important to keep the tools in the site updated to make sure the site is running quickly and efficiently.

Through my website maintenance/security care plan, I take on the work of all these complexities so you can focus on and grow your business!

THE RISK OF NOT HAVING YOUR SITE PROPERLY MAINTAINED

Here are just a few of the most common scenarios of unprotected sites:

M

WEBSITE HACK

If your website isn’t maintained and protected, it’s not a question of “if” but “when” a hack will occur.

M

POOR PERFORMANCE

If your website isn’t optimized, it’ll perform and load slower as time goes on, affecting conversions and sales.

M

NO BACKUPS

If your website isn’t consistently backed up, you could completely lose your website’s content and progress when a breach happens.

M

SEO IMPLICATIONS

If your website isn’t maintained and optimized, Google knows and ranks sites that are digitally “alive.”

M

WEBSITE LEGITIMACY

If your website has any glaring issues such as a down SSL Certificate or notices of an unsecure connection, it affects traffic and brand legitimacy.

FAQ’s

Some answers to the most frequently asked questions about the website care plan.

Are there cancellation fees?

Nope! The website care plan is monthly or annual with a no-risk, no questions asked guarantee. If for any reason you need to pull your website from our hosting or maintenance plan, you have complete freedom to do so. Your plan is simply billed out for the month or year that’s paid for 🙂

Are there any setup fees?

If I’m building your website, there is no set up fee as long as it’s within a 90 day period!

If, after 90 days, you’d like to join the hosting/maintenance plan at any level, there is a $99 set up fee because I need to update all tools, clean up the database if it hasn’t been cleared, install tools and backup the site among other tasks.

If I’m onboarding a website I did not design, there is a $250 setup fee  as I need to do a lot of work up front to update the site, learn the tools and get it ready to be properly maintained.

Do you offer just maintenance?

I will offer to maintain the website if you have hosting elsewhere as long as the hosting company or custom server meets good requirements for properly maintaining and optimizing the site. Contact me to request a consultation and pricing for this.

What if I pass on the plan?

The maintenance plan is not mandatory for clients but is highly recommended because of the importance of security, optimization, updates, backups, support, etc.

That said, if you choose to forego the care plan, you’re welcome to. You will, in that case, assume complete responsibility for the website updates, security, backups and other services laid out in this plan by reviewing our LIABILITY CLAUSE that releases us from any involvement if and when the website is breached, hacked or performs slowly because the lack of proper optimization.

Can I join the plan if I originally pass?

Absolutely! If you decide to come back to me after having initially passed on the plan due to the work that’s involved in order to properly maintain the site, I’ll welcome you to the plan with open arms and make sure your site is protected and cared for. See the setup fees question above for additional information about onboarding a site after 90 days.

What if I require more time than the monthly support time allows?

I’ll always try to get your updates done within the time allotted 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 the hourly rate which is reduced for you as a special, monthly care client!

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

In this case, you’re welcome to handle it in house by reaching out to my preferred malware and blacklist removal specialists Sucuri or if you’d like to join our plan and have us take care of getting the hack cleaned, we have a $499 site cleaning/set up fee.

Depending on the type of hack/breach and how long the site has been compromised, SEO rankings and blacklisting issues may take weeks or even months to resolve and in some cases will require more additional work to recover from.

Important note: I do not fix website hacks unless the site will subsequently be added to our plan.

What if the site gets hacked or breached while on the plan?

In the extremely unlikely event that a website is breached or hacked in any way while on the plan, I take full responsibility and will rectify the situation immediately. You will not need to do a thing.

Do you take on sites that you didn't build?

I will take on websites I didn’t build as long as they use the tools I’m familiar and comfortable (or can learn quickly) with. Additionally, the site’s hosting must be one that meets my requirements.

Do you offer price breaks for multiple sites?

Absolutely! If you choose to have me host and maintain additional sites under your account, you’ll get a 30% discount (monthly or annual) for every site you add which will be active for as long as I host and maintain the sites.

Does my monthly update time roll over?

Negative on this one, ghost rider. The retainer of hourly updates is covered for that month but does not rollover or add up for later use.

What's included in the monthly time?

Your monthly time (for premium or elite plans) covers any updates, additions or add-ons to your website. For example, changing hours, company information, staff or team members, adding new photos, updating services pages, etc.

While I do my best to get updates done within your allotted time, if more time is required, I can do so with my hourly retainer which, for you, is discounted!

Note: The allotted monthly time is for work or updates on the existing website and cannot be used for other projects or a step by step website revamp. I’m happy to do those things either via my discounted hourly rate or via a discounted and separate fixed project!

NO-RISK GUARANTEE

My plan comes with a no-risk, no-questions-asked guarantee. In the unlikely event that you want to pull your site the plan, you only pay for the month or year you’ve paid for and you’ll be provided with all site files and logins.
