WordPress Website Maintenance Retainers

Service Plans

PressRanger Pro,  our most popular plan includes...

  • Host Monitoring.  We’ll help you find the right host for your specific needs, and assist you with your account setup. From there, you’ll give PressRanger admin access to your website and any add-on services, along with the ability to open support tickets on your behalf. Acting as your agent, we’ll maintain a solid working relationship with your website host.
  • WordPress core app and plugin updates. Keep your site secure and backed-up. We track and perform updates 3 times per week on average.
  • Up to three “small tasks” each and every month. Generally, a small task includes items or requests that have a clear and tested method of implementing. At PressRanger, we’ve found in long term practice that this allotment of resources is often pretty typical for an important business website that is updated often with new content.
  • Access to Rivermile’s support library and network.
  • On-call support for your technical and publishing website or program.
  • Priority Access to our Add-On Services (see examples below)

Add-On Services

On-Site Consult

Need to talk out a new initiative in detail, and trade ideas? For on-site consulting, we’ll come to you (based on our coverage map). If you’d rather, we can also set up a meeting at one of our CoCoMSP co-working office spaces. After the meeting, we’ll provide a follow-up document, outlining action items and summarizing the discussion.

Phone Consult

Got an initiative that needs a discussion, but can be done via phone or screen share?  Our phone consultations typically run from 40 - 90 minutes. We’ll provide a follow-up document within 24 hours, outlining the action items and a discussion summary.

Re-theming

Time to shift your WordPress website into a new design? Even the best themes eventually become outdated or tired. Applying a new template and publishing plan is a far more manageable project than you might think. WordPress is designed to allow major shifts in theming without damaging content of your existing pages.

Be aware that re-theming is essentially a website redesign and therefore a process. It typically involves several consulting meetings, a full plan of action, and design preparation in a private staging area, prior to deployment.

Broadstreet Ads Management

If you’re a publisher who runs ads against your content, consider using Broadstreet Ads to manage placement, display and measurement methods for your advertising program. PressRanger has experience using Broadstreet’s versatile formats and placement/rotational tools. We’ll even build the ads for you, or provide easy-to-understand specs for your designer or customer.

MailChimp email marketing 

Using Mailchimp in your marketing funnel is almost a no-brainer. Very low cost for a powerful service. The key is making sure you have proper list management, list segmenting options, clean and clear use of the template arrays with your own branding styles installed and ready for long term.

E-Commerce

There are many ways to go about building transactional commerce into your website. The best method depends on the specifics of your product or service. We'll work through these details with you, and build an e-commerce plan that fits your style, budget and workflow.
