Managing your website as a service

Benefits of a managed website plan

1
Smaller
up-front investment

A medium sized website built in the traditional website model can cost anywhere from $5-10K, with no ongoing maintenance included.

Selecting a website as a service (WaaS) plan, you pay less up-front costs, typically around $800-$1,000 and a regular monthly fee that ranges from $119– $179 per month and includes ongoing service updates.

2
Website design never depreciates

Traditional website design/development, you pay for the site as if it were a product, the site is designed, developed and goes live. It’s great, you love it, it’s modern. But design trends change. What was ‘in style’ yesterday is ‘out of style’ tomorrow.

Website as a service (WaaS) plans, allow you to request  element changes to keep your designs looking fresh, modern and clean.

3
Keeping
technology current

New protocols and integrations are coming out at a furious rate. A single change in technology can make part of your new website non-functional, shift elements unexpectedly, or even bring your site down all together.

Having the benefit of ongoing support and maintenance that comes with WaaS, means that your website has a team monitoring your technology stack to ensure it remains compatible with the ever-changing technology.

Take back your time to focus on your business. We're kinda geeky and we love this stuff.
