Website Maintenance

website_designWhen you have a website created, it’s important to know ahead of time if you will need future updates, changes, or additions – and if so, how often. Pre-planning for what will happen after your website is finished may save you money over the long-term and more importantly, it will give you the security of knowing that you have help for your website whenever you need it — You are not “stuck” with what you have. We offer a number of maintenance packages for our clients which provides them access to professional design modifications at a fraction of a professional hourly rate.

No Updates:
If your business does not change much, you may be able to include all the information necessary without worrying about it going out-of-date. Be carefule to word things in such a way that won’t easily become dated. For example, you might say, “we’ve been in business since January 1990,” rather than, “we’ve been in business for twenty years.”
Periodic Updates:
If you don’t anticipate a lot of updates to your website, but you know that something may come up once every so often, you may wish to have some work done by the hour.At Bezign Design, we charge an hourly rate of $60, but our minimum order is only a quarter hour, or $15. So if you just need a
phone number, a price, or a photo changed out, it’s still pretty economical.
Content Management Systems:
If you would like to be able to update your website yourself, you may want to consider a Content Management System (CMS). A CMS will allow you to update text and/or photos on your website.
We offer a CMS for a one time setup fee of $200 for a single user license in a custom-designed website. This system does require that we host your website so that we can ensure the program is set up and working properly on the server.
