Maintenance plans from Birdwaves Media
Tuesday, January 30, 2018
For some time I have been working on offering a Maintenance plan for sites I have built and/or maintain. I’m happy to finally announce that plan.
Why a Maintenance plan? What’s it about?
There is an ad I see now and again on the web that shows a web designer getting swamped with “special requests” from clients after they’ve “handed off the website” to their clients.
I can’t stand this commercial. The premise is all wrong, in my opinion. I have never wanted to just “hand off” a website to a client. I’ve always been in it for the long haul. I want to be there for my clients, and be ready to work on improvements to their sites.
I’ve also wanted to be there for maintenance. And now I’m putting in place a means to do this.
If you are looking to have a new website built,
then I'd like to tell you about Joomla!
Joomla! is a one of the most popular website platforms today. Joomla! is a CMS or "Content Management System". It is open-source, free software. It is standards compliant and mobile device friendly.
Mobile-friendliness, also called 'Responsive Design' is more than just a convenience. These days it is a necessity, because more and more people are visiting websites on their phones and tablets. It will really help your Google rankings. Last year saw the infamous 'Google Mobile-geddon'; when Google changed the way it ranks websites, favoring those that are Responsive. So if your site is not responsive, odds are that it will not see page one in search results.
* Special Note: Back in the office after a two week break. If you had left a message while I was away, and you haven't heard from me yet, please do try again.
Behold! The drought has ended!
It has been some time since I last released one of my newsletters. And in the interim, Apple finally has gotten around to updating a large portion of their product line. Hallelujah!
Two Major Events so far this year
