Web Design, Website Maintenance, Technology Consulting

 Do you spend hours trying to figure out how to change a setting on your website, social media account or business profile?

... Just to give up, frustrated with nothing to show for it.

Do you wonder if your website is outdated and needs a security, content or design update?

... But don't want to accidentally break the site, spend 5 hours trying to remember how to upload a properly sized photo, or lost the login?

Do you want to start offering your goods or services online or launch an online course?

...But just thinking about the process gives you a headache?

When was the last time you updated plugins, ran a security scan or removed malware from your site?

...Malware WHAT??

Every business has PAIN POINTS, ie. essential tasks that you can't do easily, don't want to do, take you a large amount of time or that you continually ignore.

Common culprits include website updates, security scans, e-newsletters, social media, graphic design, eCommerce, and online courses (to name a few).

When these tasks are transitioned over to a virtual assistant, you can get back to growing and running your business, connecting and growing your customer base, and using your time for long-term strategy (not everyday tasks).

Breathe and Delegate.

I truly appreciate the time you give when we get together to discuss things. I can be myself and ask dumb questions. You have the ability to be present, attentive and understanding. I feel gratitude that I was given your name. I feel relieved and like I have the tech support I need and I can let go of some of my fears concerning my business. I feel freer.

Ashley provides great customer service. I like the great communication by email that she provides. She replies to my emails expediently without letting anything drop through the cracks, and she is very cordial. She has even offered for me to call her while she was away on personal time if a problem were to arise with people registering for our course.

Ashley helped with updating the website and related sources, SSL, WordPress, email accounts, etc.  She has precise and detailed communication, efficiency in producing contracts, agreements, and accurate estimates. Ashley helped me tremendously by updating crucial business information in a short amount of time.

Search Engine Optimization

Many people think that your new website will just pop up on Google when you search for your business keywords. However, this is sadly not the case. Google uses many different formulas to determine what sites appear at the top of their search rankings such as quality of the site, mobile friendly, XML site map, titles/tags, search options on your site and many other technical requirements.  This process takes time, so I recommend a minimum of 6 months to start seeing results.

Website Audit

We will review your WordPress theme and plugins for issues and compile all data found in a full report for suggestions and improvements. We will run a full security and full performance scan, , fix the small issues or bugs resulting from WordPress and plugin updates, and install security measures and optimize settings (if hosting server allows). We will also fix any issues requested by you, the client that can be accomplished within the 2-hour timeframe. If discovered, larger issues that need to be addressed will be detailed in a separate quote outside of the scope of this service.
