Maintaining and Updating Your Site

Once your site is up and running it will need to be maintained and updated from time to time. You will need to change the details of you wine stock, prices and to add new releases. You may send out regular newsletters, but the information on the site will need to be updataed from time to time. We can do this for you at a very reasonable hourly rate.

Your Website - A Growing Thing

You should regard your website as a growing thing - not build and forget. Yours users must find it useful and appealling and this will require updates and chnages. You may choose to start simple and small and then increase its complexity in stages by adding various additional features. We can help you do this.

Keeping the Site Fresh and Appealing

It is important that your site is always fresh with something new to see on it every week of month. The best way of doing this is by using a Content Management System. This enables you to quickly and easily change the information without our involvement. You should consider changing the photos on the site regularly, and adding new ones as they become available. Errors may appear on your site that will need to be coreected.

Periodic Upgrades

The web and website technology is changing all the time and it is best to consider upgrading your site every 6 to 12 months to incorporate the latest developments.
