Some people think that once a website is up and running, the project is done and that's all you have to do. They think that from there, the website just runs itself and there's nothing to do. That's very wrong. There's probably more to do once a good website is launched. If you don't do anything, then your website won't do anything and you've just wasted all the money and time you just put into your website.
Serious Businesses Work Their Websites
Companies that want their website to work for them put work into their websites - not just at launch but continually going forward. If you're not promoting your website, adding new content to it, checking it in new versions of browsers that come out or keep up on website software updates (to mention just a few things), then your website will eventually stop working for you. Sure, it might work fine for a little while but soon enough, it's going to need some help.
We live in an online and information-based world now. Your website is people's first impression of your company. There are more mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, etc.) now than ever before. Your prospective customers can look up information about your company from anywhere. People can search for anything anywhere - and you want to show up on that search, right?
Showing up at the top of search engines takes many things working together. Your website must be tuned and optimized to show up well. It needs to show up looking nice on mobile devices, it needs to have landing pages for specific searches and you, of course, need to be actively promoting your website so that you show up before your competition does.
If all of that doesn't sound like work to you, then great - you have the know how and staff to have success on the web.
If all of that sounds like something you don't have time to do or time to learn or have the staff to work on, then you need website management services.
How Do Website Management Services Work?
We've worked out a system to make it very simple for you to purchase and use only what you need. The work gets done quickly and you're quoted on how much time something will take before the work starts.
Yeah, simple... and smart.
Here at Webstix, we're often complimented on how well our system works and how good our people are. If you put in a website maintenance request, you won't get 100 questions back wondering what to do. If we understand what you want done, we'll go ahead and quote it or, per your request, just get the work done pronto! We know you don't have time to waste explaining things in great detail or you could just do the work yourself probably. If we do have questions, we'll ask them, of course - we don't want to do it wrong. If we happen to do it wrong, we'll fix it.
Here's the process:
- You send in your request
- We quote the work
- You approve the quote
- We do the work and report back to you within 24-28 hours (or sooner)
You can even bypass the quote if you want and authorize a certain amount of blocks (a block is a half hour of time - explained below). Typically if we've been working with you and you have blocks in your account and it's less then 2 blocks, then we'll just go ahead and do the work so that it's done quickly.
How Much Does Web Management Cost?
We break up our time into half hour blocks. We call them "Maintenance Blocks." You can use that time for whatever you need done. If it's a quick question and you're already a client, we might not even charge you anything for that.
The more Maintenance Blocks you pre-purchase, the better pricing you get - here's a quick breakdown:
- If you buy 1-5 blocks (1/2 hour to 2.5 hours), there's no discount - you're paying our normal hourly rate of $115/hr.
- If you buy a 6-pack of blocks, then you save 15%.
- If you buy a 12-pack of blocks, then you save 25%.
- If you buy a 24-pack of blocks, then you save 30%.
- If you buy a 48-pack of blocks, then you save 35%.

We Want Your Satisfaction!
We know that managing a website isn't something most business owners know how to do or do well. The last thing you want to do is try to do it yourself and then months later find out that people using a certain web browser can't view your website because of something that was done with a website update. As in life, there are some things you just leave up to the experts.
If something we do is not done right, we'll fix it and make it right. Enough said.
We want your business for years to come. We want you to be so happy about what we've done for you that you'll tell others. That's our standard.
Why pay just one person/one employee a semi-outrageous salary to do work on your website when you can hire an entire time for a fraction of that cost?
We're offering something that makes sense, is smart, is simple and something that just works. You need the work done and we're here to help!
