Website Maintenance Plans

If you have a WordPress website, regular maintenance is a must.

Ongoing costs like insurance drive me crazy… but they can be necessary for peace of mind for your business. Unfortunately all WordPress websites need some ongoing TLC to stay in good shape.

Compared to a software as a service website builder (like Squarespace, Wix, ShowIt, etc.), your security, performance, and software updates are all up to you with WordPress. At a bare minimum, you need to make sure your WordPress core/plugins/themes are all updated, your site is backed up frequently, and everything is working well for your website visitor.

Here are a few ways I can work with your site on a monthly basis to make sure all these things are taken care of. All of my maintenance plans can be set up to auto-pay, and they’re all offered month-to-month (there’s no commitment if you end up changing your mind).

WordPress Website Maintenance Plans

Maintenance Only | $50 per month

If you don’t update your site frequently and just need your website to be maintained/kept safe in its current state, this option is best for you. What it includes:

  • WordPress core updates, plugin updates, and theme updates (and making sure that none of these updates cause problems to your site)
  • Uptime monitoring
  • 90 days of off-site backups
  • Daily security scans and malware cleanup as needed
  • Priority in scheduling additional website work and projects

BEST VALUE FOR SITE CHANGES

Maintenance + Content Edits | $150 per month

If you’re often too busy to update your website (your business hours, your specials, upcoming events, job postings, etc.), this plan is for you.

Instead of you logging into your WordPress dashboard every time you need to make a change, my support team can handle it for you with just a simple email request.

Note that I outsource this service so that someone is available 24/7 — something I can’t provide all by myself. If you’re doing 2-4 content updates per month, you’ll save money with this plan vs. hiring me as needed.

What it includes:

  • Unlimited content edits (as long as they take 30 minutes or less) through my 24/7 help desk (tasks are usually completed within 8 hours of receipt) — note that this plan doesn’t include design changes, just content changes
  • WordPress core updates, plugin updates, and theme updates (and making sure that none of these updates cause problems to your site)
  • Uptime monitoring
  • 90 days of off-site backups
  • Daily security scans and malware cleanup
  • A dashboard to see what’s being done to keep your site up and running
  • Priority in scheduling additional website work and projects

The Whole Package | $300 per month

If you want more of a white glove service, this care plan can help take your website to the next level.

In addition to everything offered by the previous plans, this plan includes up to two hours of my time deeply focused on your website each month (this time doesn’t roll over).

I’ll send you an email at the beginning of each month to see what you need help with — we can do a strategy/consulting call, or I can check out your analytics and make suggestions, or I can set up a new feature or page on your website.

You’ll also get a 15% discount on my hourly rate for any work that exceeds our two-hour allotment.

What it includes:

  • Up to two hours of my time focused on improving your website each month (spent however you request it) — no rollovers
  • A 15% discount on my current hourly rate for any additional projects
  • Unlimited content edits (as long as they take 30 minutes or less) through my 24/7 help desk (tasks are usually completed within 8 hours of receipt)
  • WordPress core updates, plugin updates, and theme updates (and making sure that none of these updates cause problems to your site)
  • Uptime monitoring
  • 90 days of off-site backups
  • Daily security scans and malware cleanup
  • A dashboard to see what’s being done to keep your site up and running
  • Priority in scheduling additional website work and projects
