Remove the stress and make sure your website is properly optimized, protected, backed up, & expertly managed
Focus on what you do best and let an expert manage and care for your website. Keep peace of mind and protect your investment with a website care plan. Your website is an essential element of your business’s digital economy and like any serious investment, it should be protected with a protection plan. With a website care plan, you’ll know your website is in the best hands and you’ll avoid common situations like plugin update errors that break your website, and more serious vulnerabilities such as malicious attacks, hacking, and cybersquatting.
Recurring website maintenance is highly suggested for E-commerce websites. as your website stores private customer information, processes credit card payments and you want to ensure your order information is backed up as frequently as possible. If your website processes multiple orders everyday, I strongly suggest investing in the Ultimate E-commerce Care plan so you never lose an order!
Frequent website maintenance will not only protect your website. It will also help the Search Engine Optimization(SEO) of your websiet. Google takes many things into consideration when it devices what sites show up on the first page of search resutles, and some of those factors are how frequently (and recently) your site content has been updated, and how frequently plugins are updated and the overall health of your site. Sites that are fully optimized and protected will also run much faster, another factor that Google takes into consideration when Ranking websites!
What's in the plan?
Here's a quick run down of the key components that make our website care plan invaluable for our clients.
What is the risk of not having your
site properly maintained?
Here are just a few of the most common scenarios of unprotected sites:
If your website isn’t maintained and protected, it’s not a question of “if” but “when” a hack will occur.
If your website isn’t maintained and optimized, Google knows and ranks sites that are digitally “alive.”
If your website isn’t optimized, it’ll perform and load slower as times goes on affecting conversions and sales.
If your website has any glaring issues such as a down SSL Certificate or notices of an unsecure connection, it affects traffic and brand legitimacy.
If your website isn’t consistently backed up, you could completely lose your website’s content and progress when a breach happens.

Some answers to the most frequently asked questions about my website care plan.
Are there cancellation fees?
Nope! My website care plan is monthly with a no-risk, no questions asked guarantee. If for any reason you need to pull your website from our maintenance plan, you have complete freedom to do so. Your plan is simply billed out for the month or year that’s paid for 🙂
Are there any setup fees?
If I’m building your website, there is no set up fee as long as it’s within a 90 day period!
If, after 90 days, you’d like to join my hosting/maintenance plan at any level, there is a $99 set up fee because I need to update all tools, clean up the database if it hasn’t been cleared, install our tools and backup the site among other tasks.
If I’m onboarding a website I did not design, there is a $250 setup fee as I need to do a lot of work up front to update the site, learn the tools and get it ready to be properly maintained.
Do you offer just maintenance?
I will offer to maintain the website if you have hosting elsewhere as long as the hosting company or custom server meets my requirements for properly maintaining and optimizing the site. Contact me to request a consultation and pricing for this.
What if I pass on the plan?
My maintenance plan is not mandatory for clients but is highly recommended because of the importance of security, optimization, updates, backups, support, etc.
That said, if you choose to forego my care plan, you’re welcome to. You will, in that case, assume complete responsibility for the website updates, security, backups and other services laid out in this plan by reviewing our LIABILITY CLAUSE that releases us from any involvement if and when the website is breached, hacked or performs slowly because the lack of proper optimization.
Do you take on sites that you didn't build?
I will take on websites I didn’t build as long as they use the tools I’m familiar and comfortable (or can learn quickly) with. Additionally, the site’s hosting must be one that meets my requirements.
Do you offer price breaks for multiple sites?
Absolutely! If you choose to have me host and maintain additional sites under your account, you’ll get a 30% discount (monthly or annual) for every site you add which will be active for as long as host and maintain the sites.
Can I join the plan if I originally pass?
Absolutely! If you decide to come back to me after having initially passed on the plan due to the work that’s involved in order to properly maintain the site, I’ll welcome you to the plan with open arms and make sure your site is protected and cared for. See the setup fees question above for additional information about onboarding a site after 90 days.
What if I require more time than the monthly support time allows?
I’ll always try to get your updates done within 1 hour to save you some extra cost but if you have a decent amount of updates that will require more hours, I’ll give you an estimate of time to do that at my hourly rate which is reduced for you as a special, monthly care client!
What if I pass on the plan and my site gets hacked?
In this case, you’re welcome to handle it in-house by reaching out to my preferred malware and blacklist removal specialists Sucuri or if you’d like to join my plan and have me take care of getting the hack cleaned, I have a $499 site cleaning/set up fee.
Depending on the type of hack/breach and how long the site has been compromised, SEO rankings and blacklisting issues may take weeks or even months to resolve and in some cases will require more additional work to recover from.
Important note: I do not fixed website hacks unless the site will subsequently be added to one of my care plans.
What if the site gets hacked or breached while on the plan?
In the extremely unlikely event that a website is breached or hacked in any way while on our plan, I take full responsibility and will rectify the situation immediately. You will not need to do a thing.
Does my monthly update time roll over?
Negative on this one, ghost rider. The retainer of hourly updates is covered for that month but does not rollover or add up for later use.
What's included in the monthly time?
Your monthly time covers any updates, additions or add-ons to your website. For example, changing hours, company information, staff or team members, adding new photos, updating services pages, etc.
While I do my best to get updates done within your allotted time, if more time is required, I can do so with our hourly retainer which for you is discounted!
Note: The allotted monthly time is for work or updates on the existing website and cannot be used for other projects or a step-by-step website revamp. I’m happy to do those things either via our discounted hourly rate or via a discounted and separate fixed project!
If you haven’t joined our Care Plan clients, I am still available to help with certain issues or additional changes to your wordpress website as they come (pending availability). The following services can be booked at my hourly rate of $100/hour
Rush fees may apply if needed
