Aftercare

Up to date

Once your website is up and running, it is vital that the content remains up to date and relevant. It is also a good idea to change the content regularly maintain interest, and ensure repeat visits by your audience.

It is inevitable that you’ll need to make changes to your web pages at some stage, soon after your site is published.

You’ll also need to keep informed about any statutory changes that may affect your site, such as accessibility guidelines and anti-discrimination laws, and also changes such as the recent introduction of the EU Cookie law.

All of the sites that I design include a quality guarantee, and complimentary 3 month update period. Beyond this you have a choice about how to update and look after your site.

How do I do that?

A few people may be technically minded and able to tackle this work themselves. However, for most, for best results you’ll probably want any updates or changes carried out professionally to maintain the quality of your website.

Remember, it is all too easy – and not immediately apparent – to make a simple error when attempting to update a webpage yourself that will mean that your site is no longer standards compliant, accessible, or reliable across all browsers.

If your page updates are likely to be fairly occasional, you can elect to pay for this on a per-occasion basis. My standard hourly rate applies to this work.

Alternatively, if you’d like the peace of mind of knowing that you can update your web pages as often as necessary without worrying, why not consider CAREplus which offers great value and peace of mind for an all-inclusive monthly fee.
