All of the services described below are included with your Website Retainer subscription.
Website Retainer can design a brand new website for your business, or we can drastically upgrade an existing website. Once a new design is agreed upon, Website Retainer typically takes seven to ten business days to launch a new website design. During this time, progress reports are e-mailed to the client on a regular basis. Once the design is published, the design will continue to evolve over time as we continue working on the website.
Website Maintenance & Updates
Our retainer service covers all maintenance and updates. This includes numerous tasks such as updating text, adding images, publishing videos, re-arranging content, fixing broken links and so on. Additional pages and functionality may also be added to your website. Plus, we perform routine source-code updates and security checks on all websites to ensure compliance with the latest standards.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Website Retainer utilizes both general SEO techniques and site-specific SEO techniques on every website that we manage. General SEO techniques include strategies such as updating page titles, header tags, link structure, source code simplification and more. Site-specific SEO techniques vary depending on the subject matter and target audience of the website.
