What is Involved in Maintaining New Jersey Websites

We view website maintenance to be a reactive support service that provides your New Jersey business with the appropriate web developer resources to solve nearly any website problem. These are some examples of website issues that New Jersey web maintenance agencies might fix:

  • Updating your website platform.
  • Keeping apps and plugins updated for better security and functionality.
  • Adding new web pages as you release new information.
  • Freshen up your blog with new content.
  • Rearranging the navigation menu of your New Jersey website.
  • Improve your page speed to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Take backups of your website's files and databases.
  • Making your website look and feel better.
  • Fixing site audit issues or Google Search Console coverage problems.
  • Enhancing technical SEO with structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing solutions to other website problems.

Those services are just a taste of what New Jersey website maintenance might look like. In fact, New Jersey web support is basically anything a web developer or digital marketer does to your website.

Reactive New Jersey Website Support

The reason we consider website support to be a reactive service is that most New Jersey website owners wouldn't want a web developer going into their website and changing things around without their knowledge. Our company will be your web support team on standby for any questions you have. However, we can offer some proactive New Jersey website maintenance services.

A Few of Our Web Maintenance & Support Specialists

Who Needs Web Support in New Jersey

At some point in time, every New Jersey website will require some form of website support. It's just that the internet changes all the time. However, we don't charge a lot for New Jersey web maintenance, so you'll be able to afford it! There are a few reasons why a website in New Jersey might need maintenance:

  • When a hosting provider upgrades their servers, they may remove older versions of PHP that your New Jersey 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 programmed in the past to work forever without any improvements.
  • 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. Magento 1.x store owners recently had to migrate to Magento 2.x, or an alternative ecommerce platform, because Magento 1.x was no longer maintained by Magento after it reached "End of Life". Because of that, Magento 1.x ecommerce businesses in New Jersey were suddenly looking for an ecommerce developer to help migrate their website to a supported platform.
  • When a website owner has become a victim of malware or some other form of malicious activity, the New Jersey website will need to be reviewed for security exploits and cleaned of malware. This is time-consuming, and often happens when the website owner isn't paying attention to the first two web maintenance examples.
  • You need to refresh your New Jersey website content when it's outdated or doesn't explain your organization, products, or services well enough for future visitors. Keeping your New Jersey website up to date is key to its success.

Above and beyond just updating something, there are plenty of reasons why a website might need maintenance. Plan your budget and schedules for website support and maintenance based on your New Jersey business's potential future needs.

How We Perform New Jersey Website Maintenance

We have an experienced web support team who puts forth great effort to understand your maintenance needs, schedule your work in a timely fashion, and follow up with your New Jersey business after the tasks have been completed.

Most New Jersey website support services start with an email from the website owner. Your email gets routed to our ticket system and automatically gets assigned to your project manager. We can then work on the ticket without delay, which leads to faster turnaround and easier internal communication.

The process for New Jersey web maintenance services that come from phone or chat is similar. 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 Website Maintenance Service List for New Jersey Businesses

We are often asked for detailed examples of New Jersey web support requests that might come up after the launch of a website. We've performed these New Jersey website support services in the past, and would be happy to do it for you too!

Simple New Jersey Website Updates

Changes to your New Jersey website could be as simple as updating a paragraph, swapping images, or adding a new page. This is just normal, routine web maintenance to keep content fresh for both search engines and visitors.

New Jersey Website Speed Improvements

If your New Jersey website isn't running as fast as it once was, we can review your website for hosting issues, caching issues, unoptimized images, console errors, broken links, poor queries, and much more. It'll help improve page load times, which will make users and search engines happy.

Platform Upgrades / Security Updates

Keeping your New Jersey website's content management system updated is important if it's running on WordPress. This helps improve security and functionality - sometimes the updates are relatively quick to perform, which is a win-win!

Extension / Plugin Updates

It's important to update your New Jersey website's plugins and extensions to reflect the latest changes by the developers. The idea is similar to updating the CMS platform since it fixes security and functionality problems.

Fixing Search Console Issues

Did Google Search Console tell you about a coverage problem? If so, we can review the coverage issues, fix the problems, and update you on the results. By making Google happy, you'll boost your search engine rankings throughout New Jersey and beyond!

Implement Structured Data

Do you ever see product prices or reviews in Google organic search results? This is brought to you by structured data, which is a standardized way of describing the content on the web page, whether it be of a local business in New Jersey, and ecommerce product or some other common data type.

Add Open Graph to Your Website

By adding Open Graph Tags to your website, digital platforms can better understand the content of your page, which improves its appearance on social media.

Add Google Tag Manager

Interested in using Google Tag Manager for managing custom scripts? No problem at all! We can add Google Tag Manager to your New Jersey website and even give you a crash course in using Google Tag Manager.

Add Conversion Tracking

Tracking conversions is important if you want to understand the benefits of online advertising for your New Jersey website. Then you'll know where your conversions come from, whether it be direct traffic, organic search, or paid ads.

Optimize Images

Is your New Jersey website slow because of large images? That won't be a problem! All your images can be compressed by our tools, and we can even setup recurring compression for newly added images!

Integrate a Live Chat

Is your website ready for live chat? 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 New Jersey business!

Resolve Errors in Log Files

Are your error_log files big? If you're getting recurring error messages, we can update programming code or fix platform issues.

Integrate reCaptcha on Contact Forms

To reduce unwanted submissions on your New Jersey website, we can setup an invisible or checkbox reCaptcha.

Install a Caching Plugin

Looking to install a caching plugin on your New Jersey website, but not sure how to configure it? We can help you figure out which caching plugins to install and configure on your website!

Send Website Emails Over SMTP

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.

IP Address Restrictions

Have you been getting fake orders, contact submissions, or live chats from a particular network? If you want to protect your website from malicious traffic, we can help by implementing IP restrictions.

Create Website Backups

Do you want to create a backup of your New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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 New Jersey website. We've seen businesses in and around New Jersey 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 New Jersey website? If your New Jersey 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 New Jersey Websites

We have a diverse team of web designers and web developers, for New Jersey businesses, who have been immersed in multiple website platforms over the years. Nevertheless, mastering a handful of platforms is better than trying to be an expert on everything. Because of that, we tend to service only these platforms for New Jersey websites:

As a website maintenance agency, we used to maintain and support Joomla and Magento websites for New Jersey-area businesses. The reason we moved away from those platforms was to let our website support experts focus more on training and support.

Questions to Ask New Jersey Web Maintenance Agencies

Before signing up for any New Jersey website maintenance package, it is important to ask the New Jersey web support company some questions about how their services work. By doing this, you'll be able to better understand your relationship with the New Jersey website support team before you give them money or give them access to your website. You can ask these simple questions:

  • Can you tell me how you handle website security? Do you run website security scans for clients?
  • When can I expect an average New Jersey web maintenance request to be completed?
  • Are you outsourcing your New Jersey website maintenance services?
  • What are your New Jersey web support costs?
  • Are there minimum deductions or minimum billable expenses for New Jersey website updates?
  • At what times of the day are you working and able to take our maintenance requests?
  • How will I know about new updates to my platform?

We find it beneficial to run these questions by any New Jersey website services company before subscribing to their web maintenance 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.

New Jersey Web Maintenance Plans and Tips

We are often asked for a website maintenance plan by larger companies in and around New Jersey looking to establish routines and procedures within their IT department. Whether it's your website, hosting, or domain name, we'll make sure your New Jersey business has a web support plan to ensure optimum performance.

Read through this list of annual New Jersey website support tasks to consider:

  • 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 is releasing a major upgrade in the near future which will require a major overhaul of your website.
  • Restore a website backup to make sure the data is enough for full recovery. Also, make sure your backups are stored remotely.
  • Look at competitor websites (even those outside of New Jersey) to see if you are missing out on new functionality for your own customers.
  • Take a look at your website's security to make sure nothing's been compromised.
  • Ensure that structured data, open graph, and social links are all working.
  • Check if any 3rd party tracking, live chat, or heat map scripts are installed but no longer necessary.
  • Remove any unnecessary development or staging websites.

Read through this list of semi-annual New Jersey web maintenance tasks to review:

  • 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 your hosting account credentials and make sure it's not about to expire.
  • Make sure you have access to your DNS.
  • Find out if your SSL certificate will expire soon.
  • Verify your website backup schedule is working properly, and you have remote backups outside of New Jersey.
  • Make sure you're running an image optimization service.

Check out this list of monthly New Jersey website maintenance tasks to consider:

  • Make sure your website isn't having performance issues after recent updates.

The Cost of Web Support Service in New Jersey

The starting price for our New Jersey 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 New Jersey websites, starting at $50/month, if you'd like the peace of mind knowing a company is proactively upgrading your site. For New Jersey businesses with mission-critical applications, we offer emergency New Jersey 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 New Jersey, 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 New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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 New Jersey to charge a much higher hourly rate, but not bill out for communication and organization. Likewise, there are website support companies in New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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.

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 New Jersey 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.

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!
