Website Maintenance, Technical Support, & Content Updates
First 3 months after launch includes…
-Step-by-step instructions for blogging, if desired
-Website and plug-in updates
-Content updates (i.e. new images, updating artist statements and resume, etc.)
After the first 3 months…
-If you don’t have time or the desire to manage & maintain your website after the first 3 months, I offer a website maintenance service.
-$18/hour for website/plug-in updates, technical fixes, website backups, changes to website pages, and content updates. This fee is guaranteed for one year after the initial 3 months, then it is subject to change.
-Billing is monthly. You will receive a detailed invoice stating date, time spent, and services carried out.
How it works
-If you already know what you want, great, you can just tell me what features or ‘bells and whistles’ you like/want (usability/animation/responsiveness) and, just as importantly, what you don’t like.
-If you are new to this and not sure what you want, no problem, I can recommend creative websites for you to check out or you may want to do some exploring on your own. We can discuss this further.
-I will also ask you a series of questions to further determine your exact needs and aesthetics.
-Then I’ll have you send me your images and documents/information via email or Google Drive. We can discuss this further and I can guide you through this process if you need help.
-We’ll determine whether you need me to register a domain and choose a host for you. If I need to register you, I will need to use your credit card number as the domain name and hosting are both annual fees to upkeep and those future bills should go directly to you.
-Upon confirmation of your first website payment and receipt of your information (pics, etc.), I will begin the first steps of website building (including domain, hosting if needed) and begin building your website.
-$1,500 total per website, includes 3 months of upkeep and support (see maintenance, technical support & updates).
-50% up front, the remaining balance upon launch.
-Mode of Payment: Secure quick-pay (paypal) below, using your debit or credit card. (Paying by check is possible. Work begins once payment is received.)

**Costs not included (responsibility of client):
Domain name – The client is responsible for the separate initial and recurring annual cost of their domain name registration. Upon request, I would be glad to advise you on the process or I can do it for you. Options and details will be addressed depending on your needs.
Hosting – The client is responsible for the separate initial and recurring annual cost of hosting. Again, upon request, I would be glad to advise you on the most affordable options. Monthly rates are cheaper if you pay up front for multiple years. For example, Bluehost recently offered a deal for $2.65/month for a basic plan when purchased for 3 years. We can look for a deal like this as they come and go. They also offered a free domain name for one year (an available .com domain typically costs $11.99/year). We can discuss options and details before we begin.
Upkeep Billing and Payments
Once requested, upkeep and maintenance service beyond the initial 3 month period will be billed once a month at $18 per hour via Paypal, where you can use your debit or credit card.
