It is no longer enough to build a website and leave it. It is important to update the website so that it looks modern. Even more important, it must look active! If you have no interest in keeping your website up to date how can you expect prospective clients to take it seriously?
Website Maintenance Packages
Many SME ’s have need of someone to manage their website maintenance for them. What these businesses want is someone who is capable of adding photos and content when needed. If it is not needed, well then they don’t have to pay them. This is a by the job agreement. Normally we charge a minimum of €50 per hour for this.
Monthly Website Maintenance Packages
Alternatively, for a fixed monthly fee you can have all your website maintenance taken care of. This means you do not have all the costs of keeping an employee. Especially, when there is not enough work to keep them occupied. Website maintenance will include updating photographic and written content supplied by the website owner. It also includes regular backups of the website and updating of plugins and modules.
A company such as No1 SEO Ireland understands the necessity of keeping websites up to date in order to lessen the chance of them been hacked, or if the website is hacked, has an up to date backups from which the website can be quickly restored. In this way, you will only lose the work that has been done over the last few days ( depends on the backup frequency agreed). I know of a website that is backed up every 30 seconds!
We also understand the importance of having work done in a timely manner. We will attempt to have all work sent to us before 12 pm done on the following working day.
What No1 SEO Ireland allows you to do is to buy a combined monthly SEO/ Website Maintenance Package. This will be a set number of hours per month divided between website maintenance and SEO. This gives you more flexibility. If you need some extra time working on the website one month, then it can be taken from the SEO time for. Alternatively, if not all time allocated to website maintenance is being used, it can be transferred to do SEO.
How much Website Maintenance Do I Need?
For many SME’s with a brochure website, our basic €300 monthly package – for which you get weekly backups, plugin/modules updates, bi-monthly website examination of functionality and 2 hours improving content – is enough. If you have a larger website or an E-commerce website and need content/products regularly updated then the amount is naturally going to be higher.
