Merging your ideas, content, and images to engage your audience.
Congratulations! You have a website! Now what?
Regular maintenance keeps your website relevant, which helps your search engine status. Maintenance plans include system updates – CMS or WordPress core, theme, and plugins (these are critical!) – and regularly scheduled backups of your site, as well as any existing content changes you need throughout the year. Some examples would be text and photo updates, product price changes, additional services or products, etc. Creative Etc Design has monthly web maintenance packages or on-demand web maintenance available to help you.
On-demand web maintenance — whenever you need it.
On-demand web maintenance is charged at an hourly rate of $80, charged per quarter hour. For example, if a project takes 15 minutes or less then the cost would be $20; between 15-30 minutes would cost $40; 30-45 minutes = $60, and a full hour = $80.
MONTHLY WEBSITE MAINTENANCE
Fixed monthly website maintenance packages can save you money.
These plans are great for adding content to or editing content on your website.
If your existing website needs regular updates, then monthly fixed maintenance packages (based on pre-paid sets of hours) will be more economical. Add new pages, update old information, send out email newsletters and much more. If you require frequent updates, save even more money with fixed monthly maintenance packages that include more hours.
Up to 1 hour of monthly support and website updates at reduced rates for graphics, text, code, etc.
Additional hourly maintenance rate: $80/hour
Up to 2 hours of monthly support and website updates at reduced rates for graphics, text, code, etc.

OTHER WEBSITE COSTS
Your hosting fee is the way that you pay “rent” to house your website on the internet. For simple websites, you shouldn’t need more than 1GB of space per year and 3-10 GB of bandwidth. As you begin to grow, you’ll want to expand your hosting, but unless you’re hosting large image files or streaming videos, that likely won’t be necessary soon.
Your annual domain registration fee renews your exclusive right to the use of your domain name. You can register a domain on your own or through Creative Etc Design. I always register the domain with my client’s company name, never my own.
Don’t lose all of your hard work by not backing up your website on a regular basis!
The majority of websites I work with use WordPress for their CMS. There are certain plugins I recommend using with WordPress and I tailor it to your companies unique needs.
