Content Management & Website Editing Examples

We are in a unique position to offer website editing (content management) services along with our managed hosting. With that in mind, it is important to define what is included with Content Management services.

To help illustrate what this means, we’ve highlighted what type of services are included and not included.

Included

Essentially anything related to content (text, images, details, etc.) such as:

  • Update existing pages with new content or images
  • Create new blog/news posts
  • Add new events to your Calendar
  • Adjust a Home Page Slider w/ new Image/Copy
  • Add pictures to your Gallery
  • Adjust a Sidebar w/ Content or Widgets
  • Manage users on your site
  • Provide you with support or basic instruction*
  • And so-on . . .

Many users still like to manage their sites with basic updating, etc. and that is great! We welcome it. When under a Content Update plan, we’ll be glad to provide assistance and support in relation to you making changes/updates.

Not Included

Anything that adds/removes functionality or considerably changes the design (to where Web Design skills are required).

  • Add/Change Functionality, either through Custom Development or Plugins​
  • Purchase a plugin, set it up for you and then install & configure it on your site
  • Complex tasks such as “Redesign Home Page”
  • Page or Blog Post Redesigns​
  • Create a new, complex intake form
  • Add the ability to process collect payment, process credit cards
  • Generally, tasks that take more than 30min
  • And so-on . . .

* Many of these items above take at least an hour and/or must be conducted by one of our senior designers or higher team members.

If you are not sure if something would be included, simply ask 🙂
