We don't just build fantastic Shopify stores; we also offer website maintenance and support services because we know questions and concerns come up!
We are a Shopify site maintenance company with a team of ecommerce developers who work from one location. Because of this, we never outsource website support services for the Shopify websites we manage.
This makes our Shopify support company the perfect choice to provide all your ecommerce website services, including theme updates, layout changes, data migration, page speed improvements, and routine store updates.
You'll enjoy working with our team for your Shopify site maintenance and support services because of the emphasis we put on availability and communication. If you need a simple change made to your store, or just need to talk about something over the phone, you will likely find us easy to get in touch with!
We view Shopify maintenance to be a reactive support service. If you have a question or concern about your website, just reach out for help. Our Shopify developers can solve nearly any website problem you encounter.
There are a few examples of website issues that might require service from a Shopify support agency:
The previously mentioned tasks are just a glimpse of what we view as possible Shopify maintenance services. In fact, website maintenance is really anything a Shopify developer or digital marketer does to your website to improve it.
The starting price for our 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.
If you purchase a website maintenance retainer, there are no contracts, hidden fees, expirations, or minimum deductions.
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, working on the request, providing feedback, and logging the task usually takes at least 10 minutes of time.
To keep you informed of the time usage on your pre-purchased web maintenance retainer, you'll receive a monthly update letting you know how much time remains on your account.
We are often asked for detailed examples of Shopify support requests that might come up after the launch of a website.

A simple change to your Shopify website might include updating a paragraph on a page, swapping out an image, adding a new page, creating a new product, rearranging categories, etc. These are just normal, routine web maintenance tasks on a Shopify site to keep content fresh for both search engines and visitors.
If your website isn't running as fast as it once was, we can review your Shopify site for hosting issues, caching issues, unoptimized images, console errors, broken links, poor queries, and much more. This will help improve page load times, which are beneficial to user experience and SEO.
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 product page's search engine rankings by making Google happy!
Have you ever noticed information like reviews or product prices in the listing of a Google organic search result? This is brought to you by structured data, which is a standardized way of describing the content on a web page, whether it be of a local business, ecommerce product or some other common data type.

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