Website Maintenance Plans

Here at Inventive Web Design we offer website maintenance plans to help you keep everything up to date and give you more time to do your job. Many people think that they just launch a website and they are done! Of course, today we use content management systems like WordPress to allow our clients to get in and change their website. For security reasons these sites need to be maintained with the latest round of plugins and WordPress core files. No one wants to get hacked and everyone is exposed to hacking. You may think that there is no reason to hack your site but we have seen the smallest sites get taken down for not being kept up to date.

What is a Website Maintenance Plan?

There are various levels to a website maintenance plan. Just contact us to find out what best fits your needs and your budget. Here are a few of the main areas we can include in our maintenance plans:

Website Maintenance Plans

Updates

The basic level just allows us to keep your site updated. This means updating the WordPress core files, plugins and themes on a weekly basis to make sure everything works and solve any issues that come up. Every once in a while an update can break a website or a plugin can become incompatible with the rest of the website and you may lose functionality.

Backups

Beyond that Inventive Web Design can add various services to our website maintenance plans. For example, we can make sure your site has regular backups in case something goes wrong. Sometimes websites can be hacked without us even knowing it. I’ve seen sites with hidden links on them that no one knew were there. Since there was no backup from before these links existed the site had to be redone from scratch. Having regular backups allows us essentially go back in time and fix the site quickly and at a lower cost.

Security

We can offer security monitoring software that will stop hacking in its tracks. This software automatically checks your files and if it sees unwanted changes it deletes the file and replaces it with the original. It then warns Inventive Web Design so we can work on fixing any security holes. This is great for large websites but can give peace of mind to anyone who has been hacked or is worried about it.

Site Monitoring

Do you think your site is to slow? We can monitor your website’s speed and maintain the website’s integrity so it keeps loading fast and keeps your customers (and Google) interested. On top of that we can check if you have any broken links and make suggestions on how to avoid any issues in the future.

Analytics

Ever wonder how much your site is used? How many people come per day? How long do they stay on your site? What areas of the world are they visiting from? We can use quality tools to create in depth analytics of your site and send you reports on a regular basis.

Content

Search engines want to see new stuff on your website. An additional item we can add to your website maintenance plan is that we help you create content. Writing blogs and posting to social media is crucial to getting ranked higher on the search engines. We can make suggestions on a social media plan or a blogging plan to keep Google and the rest coming back to your site and moving you up in the search results. We also know some excellent content writers that can work with you to write content for you and add it to the website and your social media accounts on a regular basis. Thus removing yet another time consuming item from your marketing to do list.

Cost of our Website Maintenance Plans

The cost of a website maintenance plan is based on the services provided. Website owners can pick and choose what they want to do. Maintenance plans are normally paid for on a monthly, quarterly and yearly basis.


Website owners and business owners often wear many hats. Inventive Web Design in Reno, NV offers various options with their website maintenance plans so you can pick and choose what headaches you want to remove from your already busy workday. Updating your website can be a tedious job. When you have more important things to do in it is easy to forget about it but keeping your site up to date keeps it secure. Monitoring and checking analytics can ensure that your customers are getting the information they want and the business owner can spot trends and focus on them to improve their website traffic. Creating new content brings users and search engines back to your site and engaged with your business. Knowing that your site is maintained, secure and keeping your clients coming back gives you piece of mind that the money invested in building and maintaining your website is working for you.
