What is Involved in Maintaining Arizona Websites

We see website maintenance as a reactive support service where we provide your Arizona business with the right web developer resources to fix just about any problem. There are many examples of website issues that might require service from Arizona web support companies, including:

  • Upgrading your website platform to the latest version.
  • Keeping apps and plugins updated for better security and functionality.
  • Adding new web pages as you release new products or services.
  • Freshen up your blog with new content.
  • Rearranging your Arizona website's navigation menu.
  • Making your page faster to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Taking backups of your website's files and databases.
  • Modifying the look and feel of your website's design.
  • Troubleshooting Google Search Console coverage issues.
  • Improving technical SEO by adding structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing solutions to other website problems.

These are just a few of the Arizona web maintenance services we offer. In fact, Arizona web maintenance is basically anything a web developer or digital marketer does to your website.

Reactive Arizona Website Support

The reason we consider website maintenance to be a reactive service is that most Arizona website owners wouldn't want a web developer going into their website and changing things around without their knowledge. You can count on our firm to keep your Arizona website running smoothly. There are some website support services we can provide your Arizona website in a proactive manner though.

Who Needs Web Maintenance in Arizona

There will come a time when every Arizona website needs some sort of maintenance. The reason is simply that the internet is always changing. Not to worry though, our Arizona website maintenance cost isn't expensive so it should be affordable for you to maintain your website! There are a few reasons why a website in Arizona might need maintenance:

  • When a hosting company upgrades their servers, they may remove older versions of PHP that your Arizona website was originally developed to support. That means you'll have to refactor your app or upgrade to a newer framework that supports the latest PHP release. You can't expect custom web functionality from the past to work forever.
  • Content management systems or ecommerce platforms eventually deprecate old versions so their teams can focus on the new ones. This recently happened to Magento 1.x ecommerce store owners who were forced to migrate to Magento 2.x, or an alternative ecommerce platform, because Magento 1.x had reached an “End of Life” status and would no longer be maintained or updated by Magento. Arizona-area ecommerce businesses running Magento 1.x found themselves looking for an ecommerce developer to help migrate their store.
  • Whenever a website owner falls victim to malware or some other form of malicious activity, the website needs to be cleaned of malware and reviewed for security exploits. This can be a time-consuming activity, and often happens because the website owner wasn't being mindful of the first two web support examples, listed above.
  • You need to refresh your Arizona website content when it's outdated or doesn't explain your organization, products, or services well enough for future visitors. Maintaining your Arizona website is key to making sure it's working for you.

Above and beyond just updating something, there are plenty of reasons why a website might need maintenance. It is important to understand the future needs of your Arizona business when planning budgets and schedules for website maintenance and support.

How We Perform Arizona Website Support

It's our job to understand your web maintenance needs, schedule your work in a timely fashion, and follow up with your Arizona business after the work is done.

Most web maintenance services start with an email from you, the owner of the Arizona website. That email is routed into our ticket system and automatically assigned to the project manager on your account. We can then work on the ticket without delay, which leads to faster turnaround and easier internal communication.

For requests that originate from phone or live chat, a similar process to handling your Arizona website maintenance services unfolds. A support request is entered into our ticket system by the person in the conversation with you, so the work order can be routed to the right web developer.

Example Web Support Service List for Arizona Businesses

After the launch of a website, we're often asked for detailed examples of Arizona website support requests. Here are several examples of Arizona web maintenance services we've been asked to perform in the past and would be more than happy to provide to you!

Simple Arizona Website Changes

Changes to your Arizona website could be as simple as updating a paragraph, swapping images, or adding a new page. These are just normal, routine website maintenance tasks to keep content fresh for both search engines and visitors.

Arizona Website Speed Improvements

We can analyze your Arizona website for hosting issues, caching issues, unoptimized images, console errors, broken links, poor queries, and more if it's slow. User experience and SEO will both benefit from better page load times.

Platform Upgrades / Security Patches

If your Arizona website is running on a content management system, like WordPress, it is important to keep the platform updated. Updates help improve security and functionality - and they're usually quick, so it might be a simple task.

Plugin / Extension Updates

It's important to update your Arizona website's plugins and extensions to reflect the latest changes by the developers. It's similar to updating the CMS platform since it helps patch security and functionality issues.

Fixing Search Console Issues

Did you get a report from Google Search Console telling you about a coverage issue? If so, we can review the coverage issues, fix the problems, and update you on the results. Make Google happy, and you'll rank higher throughout Arizona and beyond!

Setup Structured Data

When you search Google organically, have you noticed reviews or prices in the search results? This is structured data, which is a standardized way of describing content on the web, whether it's a local business in Arizona or an ecommerce product.

Add Open Graph to Your Website

Adding Open Graph Tags to your website will help search engines better understand your page content and improve the appearance of your website in social media platforms when people share links of your Arizona business.

Setup Google Tag Manager

Interested in using Google Tag Manager for managing custom scripts? Not a problem! We'll happily install Google Tag Manager on your Arizona website and teach you how to use it.

Add Conversion Tracking

Tracking conversions is important if you want to understand the benefits of online advertising for your Arizona website. This will help you understand where your conversions are coming from, such as a Google search or a Bing Ads campaign.

Optimize Images

Is your Arizona website slow because of large images? No problem at all! All your images can be compressed by our tools, and we can even setup recurring compression for newly added images!

Add Live Chat

Do you want to try live chat on your website? We can make recommendations on the best live chat systems for your business requirements, install the tracking code, and configure the design to match the branding of your Arizona business!

Review Error Log Files

Have you noticed large error_log files on your hosting account? We can help diagnose the issue and update programming code or repair platform issues to prevent recurring error messages.

Integrate reCaptcha on Contact Forms

If spambots are attacking your Arizona website, we can setup a checkbox or invisible reCaptcha to help minimize unwanted submissions on your forms.

Setup a Caching Plugin

Are you interested in installing a caching plugin in your Arizona website, but not sure how to properly configure the settings for best website performance? We can help recommend caching plugins, or just install and configure them for you!

Setup SMTP Email

To help improve email deliverability, we can configure your contact form and website platform to send emails through an SMTP account instead of PHP mail.

Restrict IP Addresses

Is your Arizona website being bombarded with fake orders, contact submissions or live chats from a specific network? We can help setup IP restrictions to prevent malicious traffic from interacting with your website.

Create Website Backups

Do you want to create a backup of your Arizona website? We can help you create one-time or scheduled backups that store locally or at an offsite location.

Create a Development Website

It is often recommended that you setup a development or staging website before proceeding with a major upgrade or extension installation. If you'd like help creating and managing that development / staging site, just let us know!

Implement A/B Testing

Do you prefer to make design changes based on statistical data regarding how users interact with your Arizona web page? If so, we can help you implement A/B testing to gather data to help inform you of the best choice between two or more design layouts.

Create 301 Redirects

Are you launching a new website or removing pages from your website? You should create 301 redirects for your Arizona website. We've seen businesses in and around Arizona lose huge amounts of organic traffic due to widespread broken pages. We can help you create 301 redirects within .htaccess files, nginx templates, and CMS platforms.

Provide Website Training

Do you need help learning how to make changes to your Arizona website? If your Arizona site was developed in a platform we work within, such as WordPress or Shopify, we'll be happy to help!

The Platforms We Maintain for Arizona Websites

With years of experience developing websites for Arizona businesses (and those in other areas of the country), our web designers and web developers have been immersed in multiple platforms. That said, it is better to become a master of a handful of platforms rather than try to specialize in them all. For that reason, our web support company for Arizona websites tends to service only the following platforms:

In the past, we provided website maintenance and support for Joomla and Magento platforms of Arizona businesses. However, we chose to move away from those platforms to allow our web support experts to focus more heavily on training and support within the other systems.

Questions to Ask Arizona Website Support Companies

Ask the Arizona website maintenance company some questions about their services before you sign up for a package. This will help you get a better idea of the relationship you will have with the Arizona web support team before you give them money, provide them website access, and give them complete access to your website for one of their website support packages. Let's go over some simple questions to ask:

  • Can you tell me how you handle website security? Do you run website security scans for clients?
  • What is the turnaround time for Arizona web maintenance requests?
  • Are you outsourcing your Arizona web maintenance services?
  • How much does Arizona website maintenance cost?
  • Are there any minimum deductions or minimum billable expenses for Arizona website updates?
  • What are your normal hours of operation?
  • Will you keep me informed about new updates within my platform?

If you ask these questions to a Arizona website services firm, you'll gain a better understanding of the future relationship, the security of your website, and the turnaround time for important maintenance requests.

Arizona Website Support Plans and Tips

Companies in and around Arizona often ask us for a web maintenance plan to establish routines and procedures. We are happy to help your Arizona business develop a website maintenance plan to ensure all aspects of your website, hosting, and domain name are routinely checked to ensure optimum performance and uptime.

Here is a list of annual Arizona web support tasks to review:

  • Message your web hosting firm to see if they have upgraded servers you can switch your website to for faster page speeds.
  • Check if your website platform has a new major release that will require an extensive website migration.
  • Restore a website backup to make sure the data is enough for full recovery. Also, make sure your backups are stored remotely.
  • Check out competitor sites (even those outside of Arizona) to see if you're missing out on any competitive advantages they have over you.
  • Ensure your website is secure by performing a full security review.
  • Verify structured data, open graph, and social links are all working properly.
  • Verify the necessity of any 3rd party tracking, live chat, or heat map scripts that are installed.
  • Take down any unnecessary development or staging sites.

Here is a list of semi-annual Arizona website support tasks to consider:

  • Check that your domain name doesn't expire soon and that you have access to it. You'll appreciate this when it's time to renew your domain.
  • Check that your hosting account isn't about to expire and you can access it.
  • Make sure you have access to your DNS.
  • Check if your SSL certificate will be expiring in the near future.
  • Verify your website backup schedule is working properly, and you have remote backups outside of Arizona.
  • If you have an automated image optimization service, verify it is working properly.
  • Check if the website is throwing any console errors.

Read through this list of monthly Arizona web maintenance tasks to review:

  • Ensure your website doesn't have any broken links, which affect user experience and SEO.
  • Make sure your website isn't having performance issues after recent updates.
  • Check Google Search Console for any coverage issues.
  • Provide some kind of update to your content to keep your website fresh.
  • Take a look at your website platform and extensions for any available updates.

The Cost of Web Maintenance Service in Arizona

The starting price for our Arizona website maintenance services is $119.50/hour, but we offer discounts for pre-purchased blocks of time that bring the rate as low as $99.95/hour. We also offer website management for Arizona websites, starting at $50/month, if you'd like the peace of mind knowing a company is proactively upgrading your site. For Arizona businesses with mission-critical applications, we offer emergency Arizona website support subscriptions, starting at $495/month, to extend our availability into nights & weekends.

To get started, if you are new to our web maintenance company, we'll need you to pre-purchase a block of time which includes a discount on our hourly rate. If you are an existing client in Arizona, you are welcome to choose monthly billing at our higher hourly rate or continue to pre-purchase time and receive discounted hourly rates for your website updates.

If you pre-purchase a block of time for your Arizona web maintenance services, you will be happy to know there are no contracts, there are no hidden fees, the time never expires, and there are no minimum deductions for small website update requests. Please keep in mind we rarely see tasks take less than 10 minutes, since the process of reviewing an email or taking a phone call, checking on whatever was asked, providing some form of feedback, and then logging the task usually takes at least 10 minutes of time. To keep you informed of the time usage on your pre-purchased block of web maintenance time, you will receive a monthly email update letting you know how much time remains on your account.

What is Considered Billable Time?

When talking with prospective Arizona website maintenance clients, we are often asked what is considered billable time. You will find the answers to vary greatly within the website support industry. In some situations, you may find a website maintenance company in Arizona to charge a much higher hourly rate, but not bill out for communication and organization. Likewise, there are website support companies in Arizona who charge a more affordable hourly rate, but also bill out for most communication and organization. This is the approach we take. To help provide clarification, let's go over some examples of what we consider billable time when it comes to maintaining and supporting your Arizona website.

Here are examples of what is considered billable time:

  • Reading through lengthy emails to understand what is being requested.
  • Preparing responses to lengthy or complex email messages.
  • Helping you figure out your domain name or web hosting provider.
  • Scheduling your website maintenance to be completed by the best team member.
  • Talking with you on the phone about ideas or tasks you want to discuss.
  • Reviewing completed work for quality control purposes.
  • Providing you training on how to handle administrative tasks.
  • Researching unique solutions to difficult questions you present our team.
  • Providing more detailed time usage reports, beyond the automated monthly update email.
  • Helping you figure out email client issues within Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.
  • Almost any other task not specifically mentioned in the list below.

Here are examples of what is not considered billable time:

  • Talking with you about personal matters, such as the weather, a recent vacation, or a sporting event.
  • Responding to simple email messages that don't require research or lengthy feedback.
  • Handling accounting-related tasks, such as invoice generation, payment confirmations, etc.

Example #1: You are an existing client in Arizona with a 10-hour block of time ($1,095) on your account. You have a 30-minute phone call with your project manager to discuss tasks, but 15 minutes is spent talking about golf, weather, etc. The task took 40 minutes of work to complete, and didn't involve Laravel or custom programming. In this example, you would have 55 minutes deducted from your 10-hour block of time. The time spent talking about non business-related topics isn't billed.

Example #2: You are an existing client in Arizona with a 10-hour block of time ($1,095) on your account. You put in a request that requires custom programming to build or modify a unique piece of functionality on your website. The task took 60 minutes of work. In this example, you would have 75 minutes of time deducted from your 10-hour block of time, since custom programming has a 1.25x multiplier of time.

In this example, we would spend 15-20 minutes to attempt resolving the issue, at no charge to you.

From there, we would discuss resolutions with you that would be subject to time deductions from your 10-hour block of time.

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!
