Walrus Web Works


We at Walrus like to hang around. Too often we hear stories about small businesses who have web sites that haven't been updated in forever.

Usually a web developer will produce a great site and then disappear. So how do you change the price list, or add a special offer, change a telephone number? Often the web developer will have provided admin access so you can do it yourself but that's a bit like us at Walrus changing a car fuse. We know it's easy, we just don't know how.

That's where we can help. We offer maintenance services but best of all we have host-and-maintain contracts so you pay a slight premium on hosting but we're there to help out.

We start at offering hosting and one-hour's maintenance per month, but we don't round up any task to one hour. You can use your time in 30 minute slots so that's two small updates per month. It's not a lot but it keeps your price list current, it changes staff profiles, updates the picture on the front page and adds that great testimonial you received. You have a new member of staff and need a new email address - we can do that too. Add a Twitter feed, embed a contact form, create a blog - just let us know. We also offer ad-hoc maintenance on demand. You let us know what you need done and we'll get it done.

It's also important to remember that even open source software needs to be mainatained. We watch for security pataches and make sure your system is up-to-date. 

Our prices include basic hosting and one-hour maintenance per month. This means you have a techie on call when you need one.

We would like to talk to you before you sign up if you have a current site as we need to know if you have a database, mailing list, mailing accounts. It all matters. We can help.

An out-of-date web site is off-putting to your audience but a little effort can make the difference between a dead duck and a sizzling site that will help generate business. New material, and quality content also helps with search engine rankings. Our editorial team can help. Call the Walrus.
