(1) Contract: Maintenance of a Web site begins when a contract for six or twelve months of service is signed by the client.
A minimum of 30 minutes will be spent each month checking links, updating text, replacing or adding photos, backing up the site and its database, updating software and plugins, checking/improving search engine optimization, monitoring hacking attempts, keeping the SSL certificate current for site security, and making changes as requested. Specific client requests will be honored within 2 business days.
The fee for six months is $94.50; for a year it is $188.
If a request for work on the site will exceed the 30 minutes of monthly allotted time, the client will be informed prior to the job, and with permission to proceed, be billed at $32/hour. The client will receive a bill for accumulated extra time on a monthly basis.
The plan does not include any design or layout changes, or new art work.
Either party may terminate the agreement at any time in writing.
(2) Checkup Plan: Blackbird Studio can check your site once a year for WordPress and plugin updates, site backups, compatible software on the server, and installation of the SSL certificate (plus reimbursable cost of the certificate). The site will be evaluated at no charge, and a work order will be agreed upon by both parties before work begins. The cost will depend on the scope of the work.
