Maintenance and Upkeep

About the project

As I started offering web-development services, I found that my clients needs didn’t stop with the development of their website. They often have a need to manage the general tools, subscriptions, and files that govern their website, such that the lights stay on and everything stays secure.

As a dedicated provider of business process and digital presence management services, I have provided top-tier website maintenance and administration to clients all over the United States, including a local nonprofit. Whether it’s updating plugins, optimizing website speed, or fixing bugs, I’ve got my clients covered.

By taking care of website administration, I enable my clients to focus on growing their business and serving their customers without worrying about the technical details. With my expert touch, clients experience better website performance, enhanced user experience, and increased search engine visibility, all of which drive business growth and customer loyalty.

Challenges

One of the most preeminent challenges to this issue is the inherent imbalance in the business-client relationship. At first pass, the client may need initial, substantial development to get their project up and running, which keeps the develop adequately paid and focused on that job. We’ll call this the primary gig.

However, once the job is finished, the developer cannot be adequately paid based on the type of work that’s now required: spot-checking to see if things are okay, with the occasional project. We’ll call this designation a secondary gig.

At this point, the developer can continue to take on these larger projects until they reach a point where tending to their secondary gigs becomes less lucrative than taking on new primary gigs. This is a challenge, but also an opportunity for the community at large and one that I am exploring through the Community Hackathon.
