We have already talked about keeping your content up to date and how important that is. You may find that you don’t have the time, or perhaps you are struggling to understand a certain aspect of your website. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Most web design companies will offer a maintenance package to help you to keep your website up to date. They can also offer advice on how to do things and tips on SEO work.

You will need to do some research to find the package that suits you, but some of the most common features of website maintenance packages are as follows:

  • Textual updates to content.
  • Adding photos.
  • Amendments to templates.
  • Setting up email addresses.
  • Changing contact details.
  • Regular SEO work.
  • Advice and tutorials.
  • Moving hosting.

Many web design companies will ask you to sign up for so many months for their maintenance packages, anything from three months to a year. You will either pay up front for a year or monthly. This can be costly if you don’t have regular content changes and just need the odd amendment or SEO work. cannedSunlight’s own website maintenance package is pay as you go, and you can opt in or out as many times as you like. If you need some work done on your website we will spend the designated amount of time on your website that month, and if you don’t need anything doing the next month you can opt out.

For a monthly fee you will be allocated a certain amount of hours that will be spent doing the required amendments or SEO work. This keeps your website up to date, and saves you time. You can then concentrate on what you do best whilst your business is busy, knowing that your website will keep working for you by generating more enquiries and customers.
