Are Website Maintenance Services Right for You?

Posted October 31, 2011 - 1:15 pm. By Ryan Feyer. comments

Your website is very important. It represents your business. It may be the only glimpse a potential customer ever sees of your business. It is a powerful sales channel that can not only support, but duplicate or multiply your offline sales channel. You’re paying your hosting fees. You’re paying your domain name fees. So why haven’t you updated it since 2007?

Most people respond to this question with one of these three reasons:

  • I don‚Äôt have the time to update it
  • I don‚Äôt have the budget to hire a website administrator
  • I don‚Äôt have the skill-set to do website maintenance

My followup to this response is simple: outsource it.

Website maintenance services are great for businesses who don’t have the time, budget or skill-set to manage their own website. They allow businesses to focus on what they do best, building and selling great products, and let web admins do what they do best: website coding.

How do website maintenance services work?

Website maintenance services, at least with Feyer Marketing, are simple. Let’s say you own a cupcake shop and you’re throwing a party to celebrate your 5th year being in business. You want to get a page up on your website that gives your customers all the details on the party and perhaps a little history on your business. All you need to do is send an e-mail off to (or call) your Feyer Marketing rep and they’ll have a page up within 2 business days.

No HTML coding to mess with. No clip art galleries to peruse through (eww, please don’t use clip art). Boom. It’s done. Told you Simplicity Wins!

Maybe after the event is done you want pictures posted from the event. E-mail them to us (if they’re too big, we’ll make it easy for you to get it to us) and we’ll post those too. And don’t worry, you wont be inviting customers to an event that took place 6 months ago, we’ll make sure it’s archived properly.

How much do website maintenance services cost?

It all depends. At Feyer Marketing, we usually like to setup some type of monthly allotment specific for your business. For example, lets say you know you’ll want your website updated at least once per week. We’ll translate that into 4.3 updates per month and give you a quote for the monthly price you can expect. You’re not limited to only 4.3 updates per month, you can have as many as you want. It just gives us an idea of how much resources we should reserve for you and it gives you an idea of how much it will cost. If you don’t use your 4.3 updates in a given month, we wont charge you.
