Maintenance and Support Plans
We offer support contracts and on-going website maintenance
options to each of our clients.
We understand that some of our clients don't have the time to
keep their website maintained, so we offer to do it for them. On
the other hand, we have clients who prefer to keep their own
website updated themselves, so we provide more advanced training
sessions to ensure they understand their systems as well as we
do. For these clients it allows us to focus on other aspects of
maintenance that are more specialized, such as web marketing or
more complex website work.
Whether you want to update your site yourself, just get a little
help now and then, or have us manage everything from the website
to your web marketing, we provide services that ensure we cover
these client requirements and give you priority access to our
Maintenance Agreement FAQs
What is a Website Maintenance Agreement ?
A Website Maintenance Agreement is a contract for service
between Dallas Website Design Company and your company. By
purchasing a Website Maintenance Agreement, you will be
guaranteed access to our experienced staff of designers,
programmers, SEO specialists and technical consultants for an
agreed-upon number of hours per week/month.
How does the Maintenance Agreement work ?
The monthly fee is a retainer; you are contracting for
services to have our team of experts on hand for you at any time
you need to update or make changes to your website. To access
our staff, you simply submit a work order or "Maintenance
Request" via our on-line Interact Maintenance Request System —
our production staff will begin working on the request shortly
after we receive it.
How many Maintenance Requests may I submit ?
You may submit as many requests as you would like, up to the
maximum number of hours of coverage for which you have
contracted. You select the appropriate number of hours of
service you anticipate you will need in a week/month.
How do I decide how many maintenance hours I'll need each
A good way to calculate this is to consider what you might
need if you were going to hire in-house staff to do this job.
Would you hire them full-time? Part-time? Less than that? You
will probably want to contract a similar number of hours with
Dallas Website Design Company. For more help in determining your
needs please contact us.
