Website Care Plans
Your Website Is Critical To Your Business
You have a website that is crucial to your business. It generates leads, customers, and revenue (or at least it should). It’s a channel through which customers, suppliers, potential new staff, and partners will find you and engage with you.
It is fundamental to the success of your business and you want it available 24/7 without interruption.
Your Website Is Vulnerable
The software needs updating to stay secure and take advantage of technology advances. The unfortunate truth is that all software is vulnerable, including the software that powers your website. More and more websites are getting hacked and attacked, including big players like Twitter and Facebook as well as millions of small businesses every day.
Your Website Needs Constant Care
Your website needs regular maintenance to ensure maximum performance. Keeping the website software and plugins up to date and tweaking things that need fixing ensures that your website always looks great. Uploading new images and adding new relevant content keeps the site looking fresh and interesting and gives your visitors a reason to come back.

Care Plan Features
Your monthly support time can include content updates, design, troubleshooting, and anything that we fit within your support time.
Just keep in mind that requests like adding new features, creating custom graphics, writing content, and other larger tasks require a separate quote because these typically take longer than the support time included in our standard Care Plans.
An annual website tune-up is a hands-on review of your website's functionality and design to ensure everything is in good shape. It includes:
- Visual review of every page on your website to make sure the navigation, layout, and design are consistent and nothing is out of place
- Overview of your website content to alert you if the content is out of date (such as old coupons, outdated class schedules, etc.)
- Checking links on your site to ensure they are working and correcting any broken ones.
- Inventory and review of your website features to make sure they are still working well for your needs
- Audit of plugins used to make sure their developers are still maintaining them
- Testing contact forms to check you are receiving website inquiries at your preferred email address
Yes, if you are a current Faribault Web client and are handling all your content updates in-house, we can certainly do just a basic Maintenance Package for you. The price will range from $50-75/mo (depending on the size and features of your website) and is payable by monthly subscription.
The package includes:
- WordPress security monitoring and backups
- Core & plugin updates
- Tech support for security issue
- License renewal for select premium plugins.
It does not include any content updates, support time, or annual tune-up services. Support time will be billed hourly rate of $125/hr.
The purpose of setting up security on your website is preventative care, so it’s unlikely that your site to get hacked. But if something does happen, we will assist in the restoration and cleanup to get everything back to normal.
This is a common fear for clients, but don't worry, everyday type of content changes will not break your site. You may cause a formatting issue, but that's usually something we can easily fix and provide you guidance as to what to do next time. Quick fixes like this are included in any plan that includes monthly editing time. If it’s not a quick fix, we will use one of your backups to restore a saved version and get your site back up and running.
Monthly time does not rollover. It is there to reserve your place in our schedule for dedicated time and resources. We want to encourage you to update your website regularly -- at least once per month. Doing so helps your customers see your business as active and current and helps with behind-the-scenes things like search engine rankings.
If you have website requests that require more than your dedicated monthly time, we’ll let you know. Sometimes tasks can be re-prioritized and scheduled for the following month. For larger requests, we’ll send you an estimate and get your approval before proceeding. Suppose you have a backlog of requests or some more significant projects in mind. In that case, we’ll chat about how best to move forward, whether it’s upgrading to a higher plan (with more features, benefits, and dedicated time) or starting a separate project quote for that particular need.
A plugin is a tool for WordPress that adds unique functionality. Faribault Web has a developer license for the premium plugins which we are authorized to use on client websites. Purchased individually, these would cost approximately $600 annually per website.
We don't use all plugins on all clients websites, but here are some examples of the premium plugins annual license renewals we include in our Care Plans:
- WP Rocket
- Gravity Forms and Add-Ons
- Page Builder & Add-Ons
- SEOpress Pro
- SMS Reviews
- Google Reviews
- Schema Pro
If your website has specialized functionality such as a directory, store, or events calendar, additional premium plugins may require a separate annual renewal.
