Vancouver ‘WordPress Care’ Webmaster Services

Every WordPress website needs a webmaster

Your website is like a car. You’ve just purchased your shiny new ride, and as you drive it off the lot, the last thought on your mind is maintenance costs. Gee, it’s brand new; so why would it need any service for the first few years, right?

But we all know that without routine scheduled maintenance, like oil and filter changes, brake relining, tires, etc., reliable service would be very short-lived. Properly cared for, that beautiful machine should deliver many years of enjoyable service.

At the very least, your WordPress website should have the database and site files backed up regularly, and its software updates completed like clockwork.

Our primary experience lies in websites we’ve built on development frameworks like Genesis, Thesis 2, Headway/Blox and Oxygen. When it comes to page builders, we’ve done a lot of maintenance work in Beaver Builder, Brizy, Divi Builder, WP Barkery , Visual Composer, Thrive, Themify Builder, Elementor, Make, SiteOrigin and a few others. If your website uses any of these components, or uses Gutenberg blocks (including Stackable, Kadence or Qubely block sets) we should be able to get right to work without any learning curve. (There are literally hundreds of thousands of software options available for the WordPress platform, and we don’t have hands-on experience with most of them.)

Ordering à la carte work

To minimize the costs to you, we now have all clients fund a webmaster account with a retainer. As services are requested, they are covered out of your retainer. Periodic statements show the opening balance, service requests, and remaining balance. The account is topped up as needed.

Administration, collecting payment, issuing statements and associated interest charges can often exceed the actual time spent on job requests.

Therefore, not having to invoice for every little thing significantly reduces our administration costs, and those savings are passed on to you by way of incrementally reduced hourly rates. The larger the retainer, the lower our administration costs, and the better the rate we can afford to offer you. Prepaid credits have now become standard practice with many web design/development firms and agencies.

Credits I'm purchasing by Interac® Email Money Transfer

PS: Don’t forget to send the transfer of funds through online banking. 🙂
