Budget-Friendly Website Upgrades
If you have a growing website task list—we can help!
Much like a retainer, pre-paid time blocks give you the flexibility to budget ongoing changes and upgrades to your existing website. Contact us to see if a redesign or an upgrade is best for you!
Assessing Your Website Needs Do you need a whole new redesigned website or just an upgrade to your existing website?
There are a few factors that help determine if you need a new website or if a few changes or upgrades would help you get more out of your existing investment.
One factor is the age of the software used on your website. In some cases your theme and other software are no longer supported by the developer or have conflicts. These issues can slow your website down, make your website's functionality no longer usable or cause security problems. This may require a theme switch or replacement of software (plug-ins).
Age may also be a factor in the design esthetic. If your website is not meeting the needs of your business, competing in your market or is no longer reaching your audiences' expectations—it maybe time for a redesign.
Many in-house marketing teams do not have a dedicated web team or the skillset needed to keep an existing website growing. When a website needs more than content changes, you may need a specialist. (Psst... that us!)
It has also come to our attention that many agencies and web designers do not prefer to work on websites they themselves did not build. The problem can be that your original web designer is no longer providing service. These circumstances often force businesses to rebuild from scratch. If you feel your website is still very effective for your business needs and the technology is still modern, you may find yourself seeking a willing web team to take on your project.
If you find that your current website budget falls short of a total website redesign, a prioritized needs list is a good place to start. Many website upgrades, page additions, page templates, technology changes and section additions may be well within reach. These types of task can be accomplished on an as-needed basis and as your budget allows.

You may choose to purchase time blocks in five hour segments. Time blocks can be purchased as you go to keep your project on budget. Time blocks do not expire.
