There is no regular monthly fee for maintaining websites pages.
We only charge for the time it takes to update your site, whenever you need it, based on a 10 minute minimum. We aim to do all smaller updates within 48 hours of receiving your requests during the work week. Larger updates are still done as quickly as possible, but may take a little longer depending on what needs to be done.
Examples of website updates are changes of pictures, address changes, text changes, change of fee structures, etc. Maintaining store products is different and is the responsibility of the business owner.
Monthly SEO Upgrades
We incorporate as many Search Engine Optimization parameters as we can at the time we build the website, as part of the initial price of our custom designs. However it is highly recommended to make minor changes throughout your website on a regular basis to keep your content from going stale and falling in the search engine rankings.
The frequency of these updates depends a lot of the type of business you're in and how many competitors you are vying against.
If you are in a business where you really need to stay on top in the rankings, we also offer a monthly service based on a minimum of half hour of text and image changes, just to keep your content refreshed. The monthly schedule of changes depends on your own needs.
From website updating to monthly social media maintenance, we can help!
Maintaining your Online Presence
If you plan on having any social media pages on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and others, it is crucial to update posts as often as possible for them to do you any good. Affordable Web Design Ltd can help in this regard, by posting updated information on a regular basis for you. The monthly fee is customized to your own needs.
Self-maintenance is best for people who plan on updating their websites on a frequent basis. For those who don't plan to do a lot of changes, such as only once or twice a month, or even less, leaving the updates to us for a small fee is usually the best choice, since our custom websites do offer a lot of benefits and then we cna do all the work for you.
For instance if you have an informative site where you want to continually make changes, announcements, etc, maintaining the pages yourself might work best for you.
Websites or blogs creating using the Wordpress template based platform can be maintained in "plain English".
However, looking after Wordpress content is not as easy as it sounds and can lead to extreme frustration for people who aren't familiar with working with pictures, such as sizing them, cropping them, etc, or who are not comfortable working within website pages.
For those who still want to look after their own content but who would be easily frustrated trying to work with Wordpress, we offer a custom content management system which is much simpler to work with.
For more information on self-managed sites, please contact us to discuss your needs.
When Affordable Web Design Ltd sets up store technology for our clients, maintenance of the product information is the responsibility of the client. We set it up so that you as the store owner can update your products, prices, description, etc, all as part of your initial store setup fee.
As part of the annual hosting fee, we will look after all technical issues related to our server's technology.
We maintain the email server included in our hosting, but clients are responsible for setting up their email accounts on their own devices, such as desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.
