Comprehensive website maintenance service for your total peace of mind
SiteCare lets you focus on what you do best — running your business — while leaving the technical details of managing and supporting your WordPress website to our team of experts. For an affordable monthly rate with no long-term contract, you’ll get technical support, website hosting, daily backups, WordPress updates, security, speed optimization, SiteCare report, and more.
Think of us as your personal website management team. SiteCare gives you access to our web design agency on retainer for a fraction of the cost of hiring an in-house website designer. It’s the perfect solution for every Realtor®.
Your SiteCare subscription includes 20-120 minutes per month (depending on your chosen plan) that you can use for work performed by our design team. This covers content support requests such as creating a new page, content edits, blog posts, uploading photos, changing logos, installing plugins, SEO requests, design consultation, updating contact details, etc. Basically, any ad hoc work you are requesting our team of website designers to perform on your behalf.
A few simple notes about design time…
- Unlike other website developers, we calculate design time to the minute and do not round up to the nearest quarter, half, or full hour. Therefore, if your job takes 7 minutes, then 7 minutes will be deducted from your monthly allocation, giving you a precise approach to time assessment.
- Total time calculation includes the work requested and the email communication required to complete the job.
- Content Support minutes do not roll over to the next month. Unused minutes will be gone and reset for the new month. Additional minutes cannot be ‘borrowed’ from the next month.
- If you require more than your allocated minutes of design time in any given month, additional time can be purchased as needed at our regular rate of $75 per hour. Time and cost will be agreed upon and payment collected prior to work being undertaken. We will never charge your payment card or proceed with any work without your prior consent.
- Your monthly SiteCare report will provide a detailed breakdown of the design time minutes used each month and we can also provide the information by email upon request.
- Technical support requests, bug fixes, server updates (DNS changes, etc.), and WordPress maintenance services do not count toward your Content Support minutes.
- You can upgrade and downgrade between the SiteCare plans to match your budget and needs. We can take a look at your usage history to determine the most economical plan. Any change to your SiteCare plan will take effect at the start of the next billing period.
