What is Involved in Maintaining Florida Websites

Web maintenance is a reactive support service that connects you with the right web developer to fix nearly any website issue. There are many examples of website issues that might require service from Florida website maintenance agencies, including:

  • Upgrading your website platform to the latest version.
  • Installing app or plugin updates to improve security and functionality.
  • Adding new web pages as you release new products or services.
  • Staying fresh with new blog content.
  • Rearranging your Florida website's navigation menu.
  • Improve your page speed 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.
  • Fixing site audit issues or Google Search Console coverage problems.
  • Improving technical SEO by adding structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing a solution to any other website problem.

These are just a few of the Florida website support services we offer. Basically, Florida web maintenance is anything a web developer or internet marketer does to change your website.

Reactive Florida Website Support

The reason we consider web maintenance to be a reactive service is that most Florida website owners wouldn't want a web developer going into their website and changing things around without their knowledge. When you choose to have our company maintain your Florida website, we'll be your web support team on standby for any request. There are some web support services we can provide your Florida website in a proactive manner though.

Who Needs Web Maintenance in Florida

Every Florida website will need some website maintenance at some point. The reason is simply that the internet is always changing. Not to worry though, our Florida web support cost isn't expensive so it should be affordable for you to maintain your website! Here are some common reasons why a website in Florida might require website support services:

  • When a hosting company upgrades their servers, they may remove older versions of PHP that your Florida website was originally developed to support. This means you have to refactor your app or upgrade to a newer framework that supports the new PHP version. You can't expect custom web functionality from the past to work forever.
  • In order to focus on maintaining the newer version of an ecommerce platform or content management system, they eventually have to deprecate the previous releases. 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. Florida-area ecommerce businesses running Magento 1.x found themselves looking for an ecommerce developer to help migrate their store.
  • When a website owner has become a victim of malware or some other form of malicious activity, the Florida website will need to be reviewed for security exploits and cleaned of malware. This can be a time-consuming activity, and often happens because the website owner wasn't being mindful of the first two web maintenance examples, listed above.
  • To ensure future visitors to your Florida website receive accurate information about your organization, products, or services, your Florida website content needs to be refreshed. Maintaining your Florida website is key to making sure it's working for you.

There are many reasons why a website might need maintenance, other than just to update something. It is important to understand the future needs of your Florida business when planning budgets and schedules for website maintenance and support.

How We Perform Florida Web Maintenance

Our professional website maintenance team puts in a lot of effort to understand your needs, schedule your work on time, and follow up with your Florida business after the work is done.

Most web support services start with an email from you, the owner of the Florida website. That email is routed into our ticket system and automatically assigned to the project manager on your account. From there, anyone on our team can work on the ticket without delay, leading to faster turnaround time and simplified internal communication.

For requests that originate from phone or live chat, a similar process to handling your Florida website support services unfolds. We route the support request to the most appropriate web developer on our team based on the nature of the work needed on your website.

Example Web Maintenance Service List for Florida Businesses

We're often asked for examples of Florida website maintenance requests after a website launches. Here are several examples of Florida web support services we've been asked to perform in the past and would be more than happy to provide to you!

Simple Florida Website Changes

A simple change to your Florida website might include updating a paragraph on a page, swapping out an image, or adding a new page. These are just normal, routine website support tasks to keep content fresh for both search engines and visitors.

Florida Site Performance Improvements

We can analyze your Florida website for hosting issues, caching issues, unoptimized images, console errors, broken links, poor queries, and more if it's slow. It'll help improve page load times, which will make users and search engines happy.

Platform Upgrades / Security Patches

If your Florida website is running on a content management system, like WordPress, it is important to keep the platform updated. This helps improve security and functionality - sometimes the updates are relatively quick to perform, which is a win-win!

Plugin / Extension Updates

It's important to update plugins and extensions on your Florida website if they were developed and maintained by a third-party. It's similar to updating the CMS platform since it helps patch security and functionality issues.

Google 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. This will help your search engine rankings, throughout Florida and beyond, by making Google happy!

Setup Structured Data

Do you ever see product prices or reviews in Google organic search results? This is structured data, which is a standardized way of describing content on the web, whether it's a local business in Florida or an ecommerce product.

Implement Open Graph on 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 Florida business.

Setup Google Tag Manager

Are you interested in adding Google Tag Manager to your website to help you manage custom scripts more easily? Not a problem! We can add Google Tag Manager to your Florida website and even teach you how to use it.

Add Conversion Tracking

It's important to setup conversion tracking for your Florida website if you want to understand the benefits of online advertising. This will help you understand where your conversions are coming from, such as a Google search or a Bing Ads campaign.

Optimize Images

Are large images slowing down your Florida website? No problem at all! Using our image compression tools, we can compress all your images and even set up recurring compression for new 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida website. We've seen businesses in and around Florida 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 Florida website? If your Florida site was developed in a platform we work within, such as WordPress, Shopify or BigCommerce, we'll be happy to help!

The Platforms We Maintain for Florida Websites

For Florida businesses, we have a team of web designers and web developers who have experience with 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 maintenance agency for Florida websites tends to service only the following platforms:

In the past, we provided website maintenance and support for Joomla and Magento platforms of Florida 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 Florida Website Support Firms

If you're thinking about signing up for any Florida web maintenance package, make sure you ask the company how their services work. This will help you get a better idea of the relationship you will have with the Florida website maintenance team before you give them money, provide them website access, and give them complete access to your website for one of their web support packages. Let's go over some simple questions to ask:

  • How do you handle website security? Do you run security scans of customer websites?
  • What is the turnaround time for Florida website support requests?
  • Is your Florida web maintenance outsourced?
  • How much does Florida website maintenance cost?
  • Are there minimum deductions or minimum billable expenses for Florida website updates?
  • What are your normal hours of operation?
  • Will you keep me informed about new updates within my platform?

We find it beneficial to run these questions by any Florida website services agency before subscribing to their website support packages, since it will provide much better understanding for you regarding the future relationship, the security of your website, and the expected turnaround time for important maintenance requests.

Florida Web Maintenance Plans and Tips

Larger companies in and around Florida often ask us for a web maintenance plan. We are happy to help your Florida 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 Florida web support tasks to review:

  • Ask your web hosting company if they have newer servers you can migrate to.
  • Check if your website platform has a new major release that will require an extensive website migration.
  • Try restoring a website backup to make sure the data is good enough for a full recovery. Also, make sure your backups are stored somewhere else besides Florida.
  • Check out competitor sites (even those outside of Florida) to see if you're missing out on any competitive advantages they have over you.
  • Take a look at your website's security to make sure nothing's been compromised.
  • 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.
  • Remove any unnecessary development or staging websites.

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

  • Make sure you have access to your domain name and it's not about to expire. When you have to renew your domain name, this will come in handy.
  • Check that your hosting account isn't about to expire and you can access it.
  • Make sure you can access your DNS in case anything needs to be changed.
  • 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 Florida.
  • Check if you have an automated image optimization service running.
  • Check if the website is throwing any console errors.

Check out this list of monthly Florida web maintenance tasks to consider:

  • Ensure your website doesn't have any broken links, which affect user experience and SEO.
  • Check your website for performance issues after recent updates or changes.
  • Check Google Search Console for any coverage issues.
  • Provide some kind of update to your content to keep your website fresh.
  • Check if there are available platform or extension updates.

The Cost of Website Maintenance Service in Florida

The starting price for our Florida 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 Florida websites, starting at $50/month, if you'd like the peace of mind knowing a company is proactively upgrading your site. For Florida businesses with mission-critical applications, we offer emergency Florida 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 Florida, 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida to charge a much higher hourly rate, but not bill out for communication and organization. Likewise, there are website support companies in Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 Florida 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 situation, no time would be deducted from your 10-hour block of time.

Example #2: The same situation and process as the first example, but while testing the functionality we discover something has broken. In this example, we would spend 15-20 minutes to attempt resolving the issue, at no charge to you. If we are unable to resolve the issue in that time, we would roll back your website to a previous state. From there, we would discuss resolutions with you that would be subject to time deductions from your 10-hour block of time.
