Client Care Plans

Your Website is Part of Your Work

The nitty-gritty side of running your website will take time you may prefer to use on other aspects  of your work. You may not want to spend extra time making sure you have best practices in place and that you’ve kept up with the latest about Google Adwords or other search engine optimization techniques. Sure, you may love these tasks. If you don’t like doing maintenance or if you don’t want to have to it, you can contract with me. I have several plans to choose from below.

Your Website is a Tool That Helps You Work More Effectively

Any tool needs regular tuneups and tweaks to run optimally. Based on the number of services you offer via the internet and thus the number of working parts under the hood, I will help you select the right plan. I’ll ensure the backups and the upgrades and the up-times are monitored. That we are using the best SEO practices and that every entry into your website is positioned to help your business be more findable out there on Google and Bing and Yahoo.

Let’s not forget support! You will want changes to content and images, or for new services to be offered. My smallest package gives you 30 minutes of my time for such services. Additional time is available for each plan, of course, and I do give priority to people on a care plan.

People and businesses not on a care plan will be worked into my schedule after my commitments to my care plan clients are fulfilled.

Who can be on a Care Plan?

I welcome anyone who has been a past build or rebuild website client to fill out an application. I will give you a priority on my incoming client list.

WordPress sites that I have not built or touched are also very welcome to apply. There is a Review Fee that is not refundable. I want to give your website an in-depth review before I take you on as a permanent care plan client and in order to do as thorough a job as possible, I will be dedicating hours to the process. Any notes about edits I want to do, about improvements I suggest you consider, and about any aspect of your website that concerns me will be typed up and delivered to you as part of the review process.

My procedures are shaped around working for WordPress websites. While there are excellent platforms other than WordPress, I’ve not spent the last decade learning about them. It would really be a disservice for me to accept other platforms without some deep discussion with you about what the expectations will be between us.

*Selected Tasks

During your selected tasks time, I will:

  • Post new content and images;
  • Do SEO customization of content and images you post;
  • Create pages, menus and galleries for your website, making them appear where you wish;
  • Update your Event Calendar
  • Minor tweaks to existing pages and images;
  • Form creation and support;
  • Edits to an ecommerce or similar application;
  • New applications and plugins that require about 30 minutes to set up;
  • Whatever we’ve agreed that I will support – let’s talk!

**Time rolls over for up to 1 year

Anyone on the Whole Fleece plan gets a nice slice of my time, and I know from experience you may have months where you do not use it. But I’ll keep track and will bank that time for you. You can use it for a planned overhaul of a section of your website.

It cannot be used for a total rebuild of your existing website, nor can you use it to build a second website or give it away to someone else.

***Licenses, Hosting and other application plans I manage for you are not included.

As part of your recurring invoice for your care plan, I will also list out any licenses or hosting plans I manage for you. Included will be the next invoice date for that line-item, so you can plan. Want me to average those costs into monthly installments as well? I can do that; just let me know if you do.

New applications and plugins that require licensing purchases can be added at any time.

You may wish to manage your own licenses. Just work with me before you purchase something new – I’ll research if what you are looking at is compatible and if it even works to do the job you want it to do.
