Managed WordPress Websites is a far better approach for business owners who like to establish a web presence in a professional way and utilize their website as a collaboration tool to either attract customers or provide a better service experience to existing clients.
The Typical Model
The typical model for a business owner is to hire a web developer or an agency to develop a scope of work for the website based on described specifications. Here is the first issue. Any scope of work will be subject to constant changes even if the best intent and effort has been put forward. It is almost impossible to have a perfect scope of work. This is why the next issue is the cost of deviations from the original scope of work. For example, the language on most of these contracts like “any work not described on this document will be invoiced at x amount of dollars for a minimum of x hours or will have to be quoted separately.” Yes, we know…we helped many frustrated customers with that.
Then after the website is done, you realize it would have better if a certain section was reading a little different so a new group of clients can relate to the context better. Then you will have to schedule the updates and be subject to additional expenditures. By the end of this process the business owner manages development time and information allocation effectively becoming a project manager without having the necessary skill in this area. In addition, this causes missing the important mission statement of any business which is “How I drive additional business to my company” rather than how do I develop and run my company’s website with the least effort possible so I can have time to focus on my business.”
Managed WordPress Websites
With managed WordPress websites we will work until you are happy with the end result, we will provide the updates as requested for text, and media. We will make sure you have an easy way to enter your personal updates through login or by emailing the information for automatic article posting. Managed websites take away the hassle making sure your platform is up to date, security patches are applied, necessary scans for malware and viruses, posting files, and managing file sizes. Simply put you are hiring a developer, a project manages, and support specialist, in a time share manner. Based on your plan we will allocate enough hours to covers the needs. We will prorate the effort at the beginning, so you never have to pay extra.
Last but not least unless you are hosting in a shared environment which is not advised due to resource limitations, you will have to manage the server. This also means patches and security updates, in addition to keeping up with operating system and hardware upgrades. Some people prefer to rent the hosting and pay for their website. In this model the server is fully managed by our resources. This way we can ensure the best service on all fronts.
This is the main reason managed websites ultimately can save money. Not only you save money because of the extra costs that are eliminated. But also because of the time freed for you to do what you do best: promote and manage your business.
Our managed website plans are the best because they include business consulting for process automation, in addition to everything else, and a dedicated account manager who will manage the projects and the daily support. We further customize the websites as platform solutions that will interact with your specific business model to enhance user experience for clients and employees. If you would like to have web presence, and a platform that will promote your business in a most professional matter and timely manner, for a reasonable price you are in the right place!
