Website Maintenance: The Options

One of the most common questions we get asked when working with web design clients is:-

“How can I update my site?”

Keeping the content fresh and up to date is an important part of any website and we offer a number of solutions to do just that.

Self Maintenance

Unless a client is particuarly “HTML” savy we suggest one of following options for self maintenance.

– Content management systems (CMS)

There are many cost effective online content management systems that allow sites to be easily updated. They allow the site to be accessed from anywhere and edited through a custom interface directly in the users browser. There is an anual fee for using such a service (around $99)

– Contribute

Contribute is a software package developed by Macromedia which allows users to update their sites. The only out of pocket cost is purchasing the software( currently retailing at $79) and edits will only be able to made using the computer on which the software is loaded.

With both self maintenace options there is a learning curve in becoming acqauinted with the applications and a certain time commitment to make updates.

The majority of our clients want nothing to do with “Self Maintenace” and prefer us to take care of all website edits.

We offer both web maintenance contracts or an “as required” service.
