My ultimate goal is to partner with individual subscribers to make sure that their website runs well, is secure, optimised, backed up, and is up-to-date for their peace of mind.

Best Security Practices

Since WordPress security relies heavily on the regular updates of the WordPress core, theme and plugins, it’s highly recommend doing this every week to ensure your site stays airtight and secure.

Static Websites – WordPress Maintenance Plans

By signing up for Maintenance Plans you agree to the terms and conditions located at the bottom of this page.

Note: Customise your plans with addons not listed in the table below. (Additional fees apply.)

Some websites may require updates to be conducted on a staging site – a clone of the website that requires testing before pushing to the live site. This is to take added precautions for websites that have complex functionality, such as membership sites, eLearning and Woocoommerce sites to name a few.


Frequently Asked Questions

Canberra WordPress Web Design and Help

Does website maintenance have a contract period?

No contracts are required for my maintenance plans. They’re month to month, so you can cancel anytime with a 30-day notice.

If you prefer a contract with an annual payment plan, I’m able to set that up for your peace of mind.

Is there a setup fee?

There is a separate setup fee for the Premium Plan. This is to set up the Keyword Rank Monitoring service which boosts your website’s visibility on the search engine for competitiveness.

Why I Charge This Fee?

The setup work takes a couple of days to complete.  SEO work requires research for the best results when adding keywords to your webpages, restructuring your web page content, adding keywords and tweaking your SEO plugin data.  Then tweaking them on my app to outrank your competition and there’s also testing time.

Premium Plan First Payment: Setup fee plus 1 month service up front = $500 (discounted for this plan) + $149 = $649.

Then $149 per month payable after services are conducted on the 20th of the following month or the next possible weekday.


What are my payment options?

For your convenience, I offer two payment options for maintenance and keyword ranking plans.

  1. DIRECT DEBIT:  The customer may set up a direct debit in their bank account for payments to clear in my account by the 19th of each month. Services are carried out on the 20th of each month (or the next available business day). 
  2. INVOICING: I can invoice you after the work has been complete. This option is only available for the Simply Updates and Advance care plans.

Simply let me know which method your prefer and if you have any questions.

What if I miss a payment?

Note: If you happen to miss two payments, your service may be cancelled. Don’t worry though, I’ll send you an email beforehand giving you the option to either reinstate the service or to confirm the cancellation. 

For non-replies the service will be automatically cancelled.  However, I love keeping you informed to make sure you’re always in the loop and have all the options available to you. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

I recommend setting up direct debit with your bank to be deducted before or around the 15th of each month, to clear in my account before the 19th.

If you prefer making easy recurring credit card payments with Stripe, please note there’s a 2.9% surcharge.
