Our websites are like cars. We need to change the oil and perform timely tune-ups to maintain our investment.

 

The Internet is constantly changing and in order for your website to continue to render properly on devices and in new browsers, play well with new software, and remain secure from hackers, the code must be updated regularly. Did you know that a new WordPress update is being released about once a month?

Updating and backing-up your WordPress website or blog is vital to the health of your site:

  • to ensure that your website works properly on different browsers and devices
  • to remove website vulnerabilities and reduce security risks
  • to prevent data loss, and a time consuming and costly emergency repair
  • because broken links and pages, and outdated code hurt your search placement
  • because Search Engines value and reward FRESH original content

Whether your website requires an occasional update or ongoing frequent content changes, I have a solution to keep your website safe, secure, up-to-date, and alive with fresh content. My website maintenance packages provide pre-paid services that lock in guarantee priority service and give you peace of mind and the freedom to run the other parts of your business.

Web Maintenance Pricing

Web maintenance needs will vary depending on the size and complexity of your website. Basic web maintenance starts at $120 a month and includes:

  • Priority service & prioritized turnaround
  • Security monitoring and scanning to prevent hacks
  • Website protection from Hackers, Malware, DDoS and Blacklists
  • Image optimization
  • Basic SEO report
  • Link verification
  • GA4 Installation
  • Sitemap submitted to Google
  • Daily site backups
  • WordPress updates as they become available
  • Plugin updates as they become available
  • WordPress + Plugin compatibility and functionality checks
  • Communication by phone, e-mail, or video chat
  • Friendly, personal service
  • Monthly reports
  • 3 edits a month to existing content (e.g., edit some text, replace a photo, update a link)
  • The option to add additional tasks as needed with priority service over non-contracted clients

We offer the following additional services that can be wrapped into a prepaid hours package. These types of services are not a basic requirement of every website – you can purchase as needed or wrap them up into your monthly package if it’s a regular service you will need. I can help you determine this.

Additional website services include:

  • Text re-writes, edits, additions, or subtractions
  • Adding images to websites (more than a few)
  • Major page updates or edits
  • New pages, new content
  • E-Commerce maintenance
  • Advanced Statistics: tracking and reporting
  • SEO services (onsite optimization, advanced analytics, content strategy and plans)
  • Marketing: landing page design and creation, ad design, email marketing, social media management, print campaigns

Pay-as-you-go

Maintenance services without a prepaid maintenance package are charged at the standard day rate of $1000 a day. Half day ($500) minimum. Sometimes we can come in and make simple changes to an unmanaged site and it is quick and easy. But most often an unmanaged site can’t handle simple changes and the work to update code and adjust components so they play well together ends up taking several days.

What my Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from me, let my clients do the talking!

I contacted Erin for help with my portfolio website after years of trying to manage it on my own. I had a very clear idea what I wanted and Erin understood and executed it perfectly. She was available to answer all of my questions and took the time to train me on how to use the site after it was done. I recommend Evergreen Design Studio to anyone looking to professionalize their website.

Lindsay Fendt

Journalist

Erin designed and built a website for my start-up accounting and tax business in Costa Rica – the important part as a non-techie person is to have a website that invites people to read and browse through and ultimately provides new client opportunities. That is what she did. My website has brought scores of unsolicited business and new clients. In fact, if you google my services, I am not only on the first page of google, but the first couple of listings. In the competitive climate of financial and accounting services, this has helped me realize many new clients. I recommend Erin and Evergreen Design to any of you who are looking for these kinds of results.

Robert Pioso

President and Founder, Rich Coast Accounting and Financial Services

I needed a new website to reflect my new business, but only had a rough idea of what I wanted to project. Erin was recommended to me by an editor who also uses her services. She was a delight to work with. She skillfully listened to my concepts and helped organize the page and content flow, offering expert advice for SEO. Erin suggested fonts, logos and images to support my ideas that were original and spot on. Easy to work with, prompt in responses, and extremely creative. I highly recommend Evergreen's services!
