Frequently Asked Questions
What do the website care plans include?
It depends on the package you choose – we know all websites are not the same, let’s chat and recommend the best plan for your business, or we can provide a custom plan for your site. Or if we didn’t build your website, or it’s been ages since any work has been done, choose one of our Website maintenance audits and start there.
Why is it essential to perform maintenance on your website?
As one of the vital assets in your business, it’s crucial to keep your website protected with no issues. If your website were to crash, be offline or be hacked, it could affect your revenue or customers.
Scenario. You sell pet products online; you haven’t performed any updates on your site since it was developed; you don’t see it as an issue as the website seemed to be working ok with no problems. Then all of a sudden, you start getting popups and headers that have changed; they are offensive; you can no longer log in to the backend of the website to check to see what the issue is. You contact us, and we see your site has been hacked; the hackers have changed all the logins and passwords and have access to all your orders and payment details. This scenario sadly is real and happens more often than it should. We were able to recover the website from a previous backup that we had taken. However, the client lost over a year of website changes and added hours worth of work contacting their customers and performing brand crisis management to protect the business from losing customers and mitigate the damage.
Their website wasn’t doing ok; it had slowly got slower, and lack of updates had left many vulnerabilities, but they had chosen a server that didn’t include any security or malware protection. The cheaper option sadly cost them greatly in the long term.
Can I look after my own website maintenance?
Of course, you can; it’s your website.
Why not set up a Power Hour with us, and we can walk you through the backend of your website? We will also give you a checklist to help you move forward. We just want you to have peace of mind.
What do you mean by FREE?
Yes, when we say FREE, we mean FREE. We don’t mean “we want to hook you and sell you the next thing.” We want to help your business get stronger, provide guidance, and share knowledge. So when it says FREE on the box – it means FREE all day long, no strings attached.
Will we have a contract?
We want to make sure this relationship is suitable for both of us. We want to achieve results, and we want you to achieve results – a match made in heaven. Your first contract is always a 3-month contract unless we have a good reason to do otherwise.
After 3 months, we order a cake and sign another year-long contract (or longer, if you really like us).
Fees will be invoiced and paid in advance.
Are we special?
Of course, you are special! That’s why each client if they choose, can get an individual package. We never sell to you what we have sold to someone else – because why would we? Oh, to shortchange you… Nope, that’s just not our way. We know how hard you have worked to build your business and develop your client base. We respect that. So we create a package specifically for you and your business – because, after all, every business is different – isn’t it?
