Do you really have time to deal with website maintenance and updates? Do the changes you make to your site never look just right? Let someone you can trust do the updates and changes for you. All our team members have years of WordPress experience and can handle any updates or site changes you need.
If you saw last week’s blog, then you already know about our great new service. Well, it’s finally live! Remember we talked about the importance of keeping your website updated? It keeps things running smoothly and helps protect your site against cyber-attacks. Did you know if you do an update, even a required one, there could be a conflict between WordPress and your theme, or your theme and a plugin, that might cause your website not to function like it should? Remembering to confirm a current backup is in place is just one of the things we will do before starting updates. We also know how troubleshoot the plugins to find the conflict if needed. These are the type of services you will receive when you sign up for our maintenance package.
The monthly Website Maintenance Package includes:
- All WordPress required updates
- All theme required updates
- Content changes (2 per month)
- Additional page (1 per month)
- Confirm backups are completed
No more worries about the little red dots with numbers in them that appear on the dashboard of your website. No more worrying about how to add content and new pages to your site. Contact us and let us handle these things for you! Keep your website up to date and looking professional with a little help from us.

In the ongoing effort to meet the differing needs of our clients, we have developed a new Website Maintenance Package that will be available effective August 1st. We are currently testing to have a streamlined sign up process ready for you!
Our Website Maintenance Package is for clients who have a website built on the WordPress platform, which by the way, we highly recommend. WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world and is used by nearly 75 million websites. According to WordPress, more than 409 million people view more than 23.6 billion pages each month. With that many people and businesses using WordPress, it’s hard to argue that it is one of the best website platforms. Read more interesting statistics about WordPress from codeinwp.com.
WordPress has premium themes and plugins and free themes and plugins. Premium options will be feature-rich, responsive, and well supported by the developer. These themes and plugins are also updated each time WordPress creates an update so they continue to work seamlessly together while ensuring the most robust and secure platform available.
Free themes are usually created by independent developers, with limited or no support – although high-end vendors will sometimes provide free “lite” versions of themes and plugins, as a tempter for their premium options. However, due to their lack of cost, the quality and customization options can vary greatly and you cannot rely on them to be updated as needed like the premium options.
For instance, if WordPress updates their platform and the theme or plugin developer does not, this could cause your site to have issues or even crash completely. Having said that, if you don’t do the required WordPress update, your site can also have issues. If you do not do the required updates suggested by WordPress or the theme and plugin developers, your will site could become outdated and not integrate well with other programs or newer plugins.
Watch for a blog post coming in August that will take a closer look into the details of the differences between the premium and free options.
Sounds like a catch 22, doesn’t it? If you don’t update you could have problems, but if you do update, you could still have problems. Confused yet?
That’s where our new Website Maintenance Package comes in. Let us do the worrying for you. We will ensure your site is backed up and updated to the latest versions monthly. Not only that, but we will make up to three website changes for you during a month, and even add one new page per month. Launching a new product or just updating content? We can make those changes for you. It’s all included in your monthly package where you will be able to lock-in a low cost option for website maintenance!

I finally did it! Ever since I started my own business, over 10 years ago, I have regretted not using my own name for my branding. I eventually purchased my name as a domain years ago simply to keep another Carol Mikel from getting it so why not use it? I highly recommend you do it too.
Over the years my business has changed from general admin work to social media management and then to include web design. Now with the addition of digital marketing consulting, I thought it was time to make the change. I have found that one of the things I enjoy the most is helping small businesses get started. I really do find it fun to set up their websites, social media networks, and marketing. Then watching the business grow with a strategy I helped to put in place… well that’s just plain fun.
Now that I am committing more of my time to meet with prospective clients and doing the consulting work, I decided it was officially time to build a team. I needed some help on the actual implementation of the marketing strategies I suggest to clients who want us to handle the marketing for them. I have two wonderful subcontractors in place whom I have worked with off and on over past few years. Both individuals I fully trust to handle anything I ask of them. Having been in this industry for as long as I have, I have come to know many highly-qualified individuals whom I can reach out to for help if needed. It really is a small world after all!
One of the benefits of working with us is that you get a team that can handle just about anything you need. We can cover anything from general admin work to shopping carts and web design. If we don’t know how to do it, we know someone who does.
Another thing that sets us apart from many digital marketing companies is that we do not have set pricing packages. We listen to what it is you need and customize a service package just for you. We are not a “cookie cutter” business and neither are you.
