Plone CMS website monthly insurance for developers
Take care of your new client projects without worrying about existing Plone CMS websites. 24/7 support and monthly reports.
Do you really like to support your existing Plone CMS websites?
We, as web developers, always get super-excited about starting new client project. Usually there is something new to learn, some new challenges to take that will make us even better developers, and some new communications and contacts along the way… That is exactly why we love new project development.
But there is also the other side of the coin. After project is successfully complete client expects us to watch the server and new website. And this is natural. There will always be some minor fixes and updates to live website. Web application should always be up and running in a secured environment and with properly installed backups. And usually you’ll be the one who should take care of it all.
When we had our first 5 Plone CMS websites in our support list, it was ok to watch them in parallel to working on our brand new projects. But once we got more than 10 of them we understood that it all takes good amount of resources and time to keep up with all minor support related requests and issues. Thus we had to start building separate team to just work on support projects or check for someone that could do it for us.
Also Support related work sometimes may be cheaper than working on creating a new website. Things get even worse when you’re one-person company doing it all on your own and do not want to grow and manage people… Wouldn’t it be great if you can just delegate Support work for your existing Plone CMS websites to external team of professionals and save some time and energy to make more of a new business?
Introducing: Plone CMS monthly Insurance for developers
Initially we tried to find some Plone CMS providers that we can forward our Support websites to. But we were out of luck. We couldn’t find any good providers with high enough quality of services interested in Support work and for reasonable price. So we decided to do it ourselves.
Thus we organized our own small Plone CMS developers and administrators team that is dedicated solely to existing websites support. After we started and made sure it works perfectly for our existing clients we decided to help the other Plone CMS developers that might be at similar position we were a year ago.
So here is what we provide at very cheap price for one Plone CMS website:
- Your application is always secured with the latest patches released by Plone CMS and Python community.
- Your website is always up and running with regular backups that we set up and configure.
- You receive monthly reports with Last Month Review that you can forward to your clients.
Also, if you need to do minor updates for your client then you may consider ordering Optimal (For Business Owners) package that includes five small (<30 minutes) jobs on Plone CMS website: this can be something like broken page fixes, email server configuration, users signup setup, minor styling fixes, add-ons installation and configuration, administration related tasks, explanations on how things work on the site, help with speed-up service like google pagespeed, etc. This way you will be able to focus completely on new website development. See below for more details.
And guess what? Monthly support plan will cost you just 2 hours of custom development services according to average market rates!
