Spruce Web Design - Maintenance plans

Your website is live and out there for all to see! Now you want to protect it from glitches and hackers. Spruce Web Design Maintenance Plans will give you peace of mind that your website is up-to-date and protected.

You can focus on your business while I focus on your web security.

What does the plan include?

Website updates

Keeping your website files, themes and plugins up-to-date not only protects your site from formatting and functionality issues, it also maintains security.

Monitoring/Security

With my maintenance packages, I keep an eye on your site, and am alerted when someone is attempting to log in, or if your site goes down.

Website backups

I will maintain backups of your website in case anything goes wonky. You can have peace of mind that if anything happens, we will be able to get back up and running with a site backup.

Site Optimization

With my optimization tools, I will make sure your site is loading fast and performing well.

Monthly reporting

I will provide you with an easy to understand monthly report of what’s happening on your site.

priority support

Being on a maintenance plan means you always get priority support. Whether you need an update or just have a question, you’re at the top of my list.

personalized strategy

Depending on which plan you choose, you could have either a Quarterly or Annual strategy call with me. We can work on different web strategies depending on your need. Whether that’s marketing (newsletters, social, etc.), conversions, Google Business presence. The possibilities are nearly limitless!

Can I maintain my own website?

Absolutely! If you have technical knowledge and time to dedication, you can absolutely do your own maintenance. Purchasing the maintenance plan is not mandatory.

FAQ's

No. The maintenance plans are paid either monthly or annually, and you can cancel risk-free at any time.

However, if your site was built over 90 days ago, there is a $100 setup fee to update, backup, and clean up the site.

You don’t have to purchase a maintenance plan, but you will need to maintain the back-end of the website yourself.

We are not responsible for any website breaches, hacks, or slow performance. This is outlined in the Liability Clause.

Of course!

However, I do charge a $100 setup fee if I built your site over 90 days prior to you signing up for the maintenance plan.

If I did not design your site, there is a $250 setup fee to learn how your site was built, and to ready it for proper maintenance.

If you have any large updates that will take longer than your allotted monthly support time, we can work out a time estimate at my hourly rate. Maintenance customers receive a discounted hourly rate for being awesome! 🙂

Definitely! If I am maintaining multiple sites that you own, you will get a 30% discount.
