Website maintenance agreements

Web site maintenance can be very time consuming but is vitally important to the lifespan of the web site. Constantly changing content provides new stimulus for the site visitor, engaging their curiosity and interest. Keeping the web site fresh and update ensures your visitors not only return but recommend your siteothers. I provide several options for our customerskeep their web sites in tip top condition, update and accurate on a regular basis.

  • Starter 1
  • £55.00
  • 1 Hour Maintenance per month
  • 2 updates per month
  • Option 3
  • £150.00
  • 3 Hours Maintenance per month
  • 6 updates per month
  • Option 5
  • £200.00
  • 5 Hours Maintenance per month
  • 10 updates per month

What does each hour get me?

I bill by the hour (in 30 min blocks), minimum 1 hour. I log everything in an hour log and bill at the end of the month. I also strictly enforce that all updates under 2 hours require 2 days for completion and updates over 3 hours require 5 days notice.

In general Code Cobber don't conduct updates sent that day and charge extra for next day rush updates. This serves all our customers well and ensures that those who submit update requests in advance aren't pushed to the back of the queue by last minute updates from other customers. It pays to be prepared. I endeavour to provide the best service possible for all of omy clients and will update your requests as quickly as possible.

This is important to ensure that 'Client's don't wait to send updates the day before they need them (or Monday morning expecting the update to be complete by lunch time), therefore interrupting the design schedule of existing projects.

The majority of the 'Client's sites are on CMS systems, so they are able to perform the updates themselves, this is more for the 'Client's who find it difficult or aren't interested or are too busy and need something more than a regular update.
