Website Care & Maintenance

If you know you don’t have, or want, the in-house expertise for a successful website, this might be your best business decision yet.

Focus on the work YOU need to do.

And we’ll focus on making sure your website is doing what it needs to do.

Website maintenance is essential.

News flash: There’s no such thing as a maintenance-free website.

Your website is like a digital version of a houseplant: it needs regular care and attention in order to thrive. Like any other software it needs to be kept up to date.

Without regular and expert care, your once-beautiful digital “houseplant” is dying – or dead. It’s not reaching your customers, your customers can’t find you, and search engines don’t like you.

Our solution: Find someone you trust to maintain your site.

Signs of a Neglected Website

These are just four of the most common problems we see, but there are so many more.

Too slow

Slow & laggy doesn’t win the race, but your site probably didn’t start out that way. Over time, things can get bogged down.


Compromised security means your site and your users are vulnerable to attacks. As users get more and more savvy online, this is not an acceptable risk.

Reduced trust

A poor user experience results in lower trust in you and your brand perception online.

Google doesn't like you

A poor user experience (UX) translates to poor search engine ranking – and not just on Google, but other search engines too.

Why Sign Up for Maintenance?

We’re all about empowering our clients to have functional, findable websites. But we know that sometimes you don’t have the time or the technical know-how, in house, to manage your website yourself.

Runs - and stays - fast

We monitor your site performance and analyze trends so we can identify and fix issues.


Let’s face it, there are no guarantees. But if your software is kept up-to-date, you reduce the risk of compromising the security of your website.

Regular & reliable backups

On-site and off-site backups, so that if something unexpected happens, we can get you back up and running as quickly as possible. Because when something breaks, you don’t have time to start from scratch!

Fresh, clean, up to date

Ongoing monitoring and updating means your site will look clean, fresh, AND be up to date.

Search engines like you better

Search engines are like fair-weather friends: they only like you when all the conditions are right. Over the years, we see more and more emphasis on websites providing an exceptional user experience. With regular care and maintenance, your user experience will be better. And over time, search engines will be friends with your site again.

Support & expertise in your back pocket

We’re the in-house support you don’t need to keep in-house.

What's Included?

There are two main components to managing a website:

  1. the public side or “front end”, which is where visitors see all the words and images
  2. the “back end”, where your software and plugins or apps live.

We believe both those components are critical to providing a good User Experience, and our Care & Maintenance Packages include the following. Custom packages also available.

1. Front End Work: Content Editing

These are tasks that affect the public, visible end of your website, such as adding blog posts or replacing images on a page.

Our Care & Maintenance package includes up to 3 of these tasks per month. Customized packages available.

New Blog Posts

Publishing new blog posts from text documents provided

Minor Page Edits

Adding, removing, or editing text on existing pages


Upload and optimize provided images and adding to web pages


Editing or updating widgets


Modifying and testing existing contact forms


Modifying navigation menu items

Upload PDF

Manage and moderate comments

2. Back End Work

The back end of your website is where the techy stuff is. This is where the heavy lifting happens, and it is critical that these tasks are kept up to date.

This is where small problems can become very big problems, very quickly!

This work affects your user’s experience in ways that most website owners don’t realize. This includes the software which keeps everything running well.

*Troubleshooting issues may require additional fees.

What Clients Say

I’m very grateful for your fast response. We are doing a lot of reach outs right now to invite our best contacts to our book launch celebration. This book is our biggest investment and business development and the website is crucial to that. We are so glad that it is in good hands! Yours!
Pam Fox Rollin
Altus Growth Partners
Our website was very stressful and difficult for our whole board of directors to deal with. I'm not very computer-y myself, and I used to lose sleep worrying about how we were going to deal with the website. Now that we have Clarity looking after it for us, we don't even have to think about it.
Adrienne Wood
Windsor Township Business Association
We’re a small team providing specialized services, so I don’t have the time to manage the website myself. Having it was actually more of a chore than anything else... I can rely on Clarity Web Design Studio and their expertise to handle any questions I have.

We’ll take a look and assess, and give our best estimate as to what needs to be done and how long it will take to fix. Request an Evaluation today.

Our Care & Maintenance Package applies to WordPress clients only. Shopify clients can contact us directly to discuss customized options.

We’ll collect the access information we need for your site and run a preliminary evaluation. If it’s been a long time or there are significant updates required, we’ll contact you with any additional setup requirements.

Send us an email and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours. The edits covered by your maintenance package are included in our list above. 

Only someone who’s never had a problem will ask this question! We back up your site daily and store backups on and off-site for 90 days, so we can get you back up and running as quickly as possible if something happens.

If you’ve already noticed a problem, get in touch with your service provider FIRST, and don’t put it off. The longer you wait, the more likely your website will be blacklisted and it will be even harder to get back online. If you are already one of our Maintenance clients, we can help with this.

Major rework is not covered by our maintenance plan. Take a look at our Website Rejuvenation page or contact us for a consultation.

No. Your hosting fee is an annual cost to your web host, and is not included in maintenance.

We are not an IT help desk but if we can help, we will. If you need assistance with email configuration, we may be able to help with this. 

As with any technology, we cannot guarantee a problem-free website. We want to help and support you throughout your business career, so we do our best to ensure that what you have is working as expected. And we keep reliable backups in case they’re needed.

You can cancel anytime by emailing 

Don't let your website fade into oblivion.

Keep your website happy, and your visitors and search engines will be happy too.
