Backups & Archives
Manual backups and validation can take 1 hour or more (depending on the site’s size) per web site. If you don’t have an existing back up process, you can use your retainer. Sites that have a high information turn over (news, ecommerce, etc.) can vary greatly. If you are an existing client, we can help estimate from previous work requests.
In our experience, general informational business sites require 1-2 hours per dozen pages monthly. Content management allows you to update changing information and keep your site accurate and relevant. Larger sites or those with a faster update cycle should consider a more robust package.
Regular site audits for malware and spam are an excellent housekeeping policy and can prevent you and your visitors from being compromised. We recommend a generic review and treatment monthly, approximately 1 hour per website of average size, traffic and complexity.
Development & Customization
Adding new functionality to a site can vary greatly, but it generally equates to ~1-3 hours for a minor feature or enhancement, ~3-8 for medium. Larger projects are best handled by our flat-fee quote option.
