Maintenance Plans -
Time Versus Money

Joe LawWhen I meet with customers, I'm almost invariably asked, "Will we be able to maintain the website ourselves?" And I always reply with, "Of course you can! WordPress makes it incredibly easy to maintain and grow your website. But let's talk about time versus money and what your time is worth."

I'm sure the majority of us can change the oil in our vehicles. But, it takes a bit of time and planning, doesn't it? We have to go to the store, purchase the oil and filter, we have to make sure we have our tools to hand, we have to deal with the waste oil, the mess, etc., So in order to do it ourselves, we trade the money saved versus the time it takes us to do all of that. The same thing can be said for website maintenance. If you want to handle your own website maintenance ask yourself this, will you make more money if you spend the same amount of time on other tasks within your business?

Mass Excavation, Inc.

"Sundog was a fantastic partner to work with. Once we decided to get going, we were able to launch the website with all the content, links and photos in 28 calendar days. The team was responsive to our requests for changes and WordPress makes it easy for us to take over the daily management of the website. We would recommend Sundog to anyone interested in developing or refreshing their website."

The Thai Inn

"Sundog Media just completed my third website. My experience with each site building has been overwhelmingly positive as each staff member has given me the one on one attention I needed for a successful presence on the web. When it's time for a fourth site, I know Sundog Media will be building it."
