Website management and maintenance is essential for keeping your website fresh, appealing and up-to-date. Without consistent and regular website management and maintenance, your website becomes nothing more than a glorified yellow pages ad which does an injustice to the growing and dynamic nature of your business. Your website is a low-cost, electronic customer service representative which must appear informed & up-to-the-minute so that your customers can be the informed, strategic partners that you desire.

The problem that most business owners face is finding enough time to be able to keep their website updated with everything else going on. That's where we come in - our website maintenance and website management programs are a low cost solution to this problem.

MyBizNow.com offers you the choice of maintenance & support services on either an hourly rate basis, or on a per job basis, or through purchase of a package of commonly-used services. What’s right for you?

If you need only sporadic, piece-meal work you will probably prefer our hourly rate structure. The system is simple: You tell us in detail what you need done and we give you an estimate of how long it will take. We bill with a 1 hour minimum in hourly increments. At the conclusion of the job we will bill you.

If you need custom development work (say, for example, you want to add a new interactive feature to your site, like a newsletter subscription function or an online gallery) you are probably best served by asking us for a quote for the project – a “project rate”. Once you approve the quote, you will need to pay a 50% deposit, with the balance being paid after acceptance of the work.

In contrast, if you wish to regularly change your website’s contents -- even as little as one page a month – you will find that the packages outlined below can save you money and provide a predictable, periodic expense. As we offer a variety of packages, you can also enjoy economies of scale. Packages are paid in advance, as per below.

Our hourly rates and our packages are outline below.
