Ho! Ho! Ho! Give Your Business The Gift of Maintenance!

presentsHappy Holidays! We’re pretty excited to announce the release of two new maintenance plans to help you manage your site. Currently we offer Starter, Standard, and Premium Plans. Each one offers varying levels of support and various features on a per plan basis such as a 50 point checklist, priority support, content updates, access to tutorials, monthly webinars and much more. In addition to these we are now offering our new plans Budget and Content. “We decided to offer the new plans because we found there were two groups of customers we needed to be able to serve, those that needed a smaller plan that gave them all of the core maintenance features, and a plan that included some content creation for those who needed help with other tasks such as blog writing, content writing, social media updates and more.” says Alexis Priddy, Senior Developer at YellowWebMonkey.com. “With these 2 new plans, we now have something for everyone.”

Our new Budget Plan offers our core maintenance support features for $75 a month:
 

  • Uptime Monitoring
  • Website backups
  • Website Firewall
  • Malware Scans
  • Joomla Core Extension upgrades with 24hrs of release
  • Monthly Extension Upgrades
  • Premium Admin Tools
  • Training Webinars
  • Google Analytics
  • Google Webmaster Tools

 

Our new Content Plan, includes the same features and pricing of $175 per month as our Standard Support Plan, however with the Content Plan you have the option to apply your 2 hours worth of support towards things other than support. “Not everyone needs 2 hours worth of support each month on fixing issues or training, but nearly everyone needs help with keywords, blog content/ideas, content edits, posting to social media...many of these are daily tasks that small business owners don’t have the staff to attend to on a daily basis, and this is where this plan fits in perfectly,” says Alexis. With our new Support& Content Plan you’ll be able to have the wealth of your site needs met, all for one low price. And if you think of something that you're not sure qualifies as part of Support & Content, just let us know and we'll see if it's something that's covered by your plan.

Don't delay! Sign up today and take 25% off your first month of maintenance!

MAINTENANCE

 

MAINTENANCE

Weekly Backups

Uploaded to DropBox

Uptime Monitored

Sitemap Regenerated

Re-submitted to Google

 

The maintenance section shows the monthly “housekeeping” items that have been completed. Each week, we create a backup of your site and upload it to Dropbox so there is always a recent copy of your site available should some unforeseen emergency occur and your site needs to be restored quickly. We monitor your uptime daily so if there’s a problem and your site goes down we will know immediately and be able to restore it. Whenever you add new content/pages to a site in order to have them show up in search engine results, the search engine needs to know they exist. They do this by either sending out “spiders’ to crawl through the web looking for new pages, or by receiving a map of the content on your site to update their index. We take care of this for your each month, submitting the update map to them ensuring they have the most recent list of content .

 

SECURITY

 

SECURITY

Malware Scan

Hacker Attempts

SPAM Email Forms

Hackers Added to Blacklist

       

Security is always important in maintaining your website and each month we perform a number of checks to keep your site from falling prey to any attacks. We run a monthly Sucuri Malware Scan to make sure there is no malware (malicious software) threatening your site and we verify via Google Webmasters that your site is clean. We also scan for any hacker attempts and add them to your Hacker Blacklist as well as any spam email forms.

Check Out Our New LIVE Support!

If you’re looking to have some work done on a website, we know that you will have questions - and you should. Hiring someone to work on your website is a big deal and we want to make the process as easy as possible for you to have all of your questions answered. So now we’ve made it easier for you to get those answers. No need to call us (we know these days no one really likes to pick up a phone), and email somehow seems a little “slow” with the whole advent of texting, so now we have someone standing by live on our website that you can ask questions of and get immediate answers.

 

We’ve added a “Live Support” Feature down in the right hand corner of our site where you can type your questions and get live answers from a real person. How cool is that?! We’ve added it to every page so no matter where you are on the site you’ll be able to get an answer. We are a US owned company and we don’t subcontract any of our work  including our live support feature. You’ll get answers from an actual live person who would be working on your site, so feel free to ask us anything - we don’t expect you to be an expert that’s our job.

 

When we’re online and available for questions this is what you will see:
live chat

So feel free to type away and ask all of the questions you need. If we don’t have a live agent available at that very moment you can still send us questions. You’ll see this instead:

live chat offline

Feel free to send your questions and we will get back to you within 24 hours. Remember there are no stupid questions, so ask away and we’ll help you in any way we can.

Why You Need A Maintenance Plan

 

Joomla Webmaster ServicesThe beginning of a new year is always a great time for “getting your house in order”.  We normally start looking at things in our personal lives like saving money for the future, our insurance coverages, home repairs to guard against winter weather and a host of other things we have on that first of the year checklist we promise ourselves we are going to check off to get the year started right. It pays to be prepared for life’s unexpected emergencies and this couldn’t be truer than when it comes to your website.

 

Imagine it’s a Friday night and you’re preparing to launch a huge promotion on your website for the weekend. You’ve spent all week getting together the changes you want to do, you log into your site and start making the changes and the unthinkable happens…power goes out, site crashes, and you don’t have a backup to restore it. What do you do? Scenarios like this happen all the time and in the event next time it’s you it happens to, you want to be prepared.

 

Our Maintenance Plans offer a full spectrum of monthly “tune-up” services included in our 50 point checklist to ensure your site is running optimally for security, speed, and SEO.  You get a report at the end of the month letting you know what actions were taken and the current status of your site. Maintenance Plans also come with built in support and guaranteed response times based on the level of support you choose.

 

“I can't thank Alexis enough who helped me in my time of need...” said Joey Tiritilli of JoeyJet.com. “  I hope that I never need you guys again... However, you are the best as far as I am concerned... Thanks so much!

 

Joomla Help DeskOur helpdesk system instantly alerts the members of our support team of whatever issues you are having with your site so we can respond as quickly as possible to rectify the situation. Even better all clients on a Maintenance Plan receive Priority Support, which means their trouble tickets are moved to the front of the queue to receive the quickest resolution possible. “You don’t want to be stuck in a situation where you have an emergency that arises and you drop in a support request that’s in the backlog of other requests” says Nicole, a member of the YellowWebMonkey team. “Or even worse, you don’t want to have your site hacked, you need to have it fixed quickly, you’re not on a maintenance plan so you turn to CraigslIst or other job posting sites to find a developer that can do a quick fix for you. These things can end up having disastrous consequences to your website and now you’re faced with having to pay us to fix the initial problem and the damage that was done by another developer. That’s like buying car insurance AFTER you’ve already had an accident!”

 

Our Maintenance Plans include a full spectrum of services - Joomla system upgrades, extension updates, content updates, access to tutorials, group webinars and one-on-one training are all included in each maintenance package. Even if you’re a seasoned do-it-yourselfer it never hurts to have that extra support in your back pocket in case you even need it. 

 

“As an estate planning attorney, I can’t help laughing or at least shaking my head when I see stories from colleagues, or witness personally, the problems that arise when folks try to do their own estate planning with LegalZoom and such. But I came to realize I’d been doing the same when it comes to building and maintaining my website!” said Dave Duringer of Law News TV. “Last year I started using Joomla. There was a lot to learn, but I liked the ability to design the site myself. But without any professional assistance, I kept running into problems I could not fix, largely it turns out because I did not upgrade to the latest version—even though I thought I did! I contacted YellowWebMonkey to join their monthly maintenance plan. I was really impressed with the introductory service they provided me, gave the plan a try, and found it’s a super deal given the value they deliver. Now I’m a loyal client of theirs, and I can still manage and design the site myself – but more effectively with their expertise and support.”

 

So make sure this year you’re covered when it comes to support for your website. Our Maintenance Packages offer you the insurance and assurance you need that in the time of crises someone has your back.

And to sweeten the deal for the rest of October we’re offering a great Fall special…sign up for a 3 month maintenance contract by October 31st and save 15%!

New Tutorial Section at YellowWebMonkey

Over the holidays, we made many improvements to our online tutorial section.  You can check it out at http://www.yellowwebmonkey.com/joomla-tutorials.  

There is nothing more frustrating that having a new, shiny website and having no idea how to use it.  That is why we consolidated all the tutorials in one place and have tried to make it more user friendly.  We still offer twice a month webinars to all past YellowWebMonkey clients that you can sign up at http://ywm.eventbrite.com.

Joomla Tutorials

 

Here are some of the new features of the tutorial section:

 

Tutorial Category Navigation: 

The categories for the tutorials are on the left and that menu is constant throughout the knowledge base.  Categories that are part of core Joomla are on the top and tutorials for 3rd party extensions are listed below.

 

Quick Search: 

Most likely you are looking for help for a specific problem.  Now the search block is prominent at the top.  It uses the core Joomla "Smart Search" to auto suggest topics.

  

List Modules: 

The "Featured Tutorials" shows specific tutorials our staff thinks are important.  "Popular Tutorials" shows the topics with the most page views and "Most Recent" shows the newest by date.

  

Request Tutorial Button: 

We know there are many tutorials still needed.  In the bottom left is a button to easily request a new tutorial.

 

Get Help Button: 

You may just decide that you would prefer for us to take care of your issue.  The button in the bottom right allows you to submit a support ticket directly to us.  If you are on a current maintenance planmaintenance plan, we will take care of the issue immediately.  If not, we can send you more information about our plans or let you know what our estimated turnaround time is.

 

Joomla Version Coding: 

j2.5-3Next to the title of each tutorial, we have an icon indicating which version of Joomla the tutorial applies to.  We are currently generating many new tutorials for Joomla 3.2 which is the newest version (and the one that all maintenance clients are on).

 

YOUR TURN

What else would you like to see in our tutorial section?  Leave comments to let us know how we can help you even better!

This summer at YellowWebMonkey we have set up a little friendly competition between our two new interns and we need your help! Take this opportunity to not just join in the fun....learn how to create a unique blog in a variety of writing styles.


Our new interns, Brett Wiggins and Scout Riggs, are not just learning about websites, web marketing and sales....they are learning how to write the ideal blog. Over the next few weeks they will write a series of unique blogs covering a number of blog styles including: personal profiles, critiques, reviews, research, utilizing lists and more.

If you would like to write a better blog but are out of ideas and inspiration then tune in while our interns hone their writing skills and share new ideas and styles.

Here is how it works:

  • Both Brett and Scout will post a new blog each week. Each blog will cover a new, unique blog style.
  • You be the judge. Look at each blog critically considering content and writing style.
  • Watch for our Facebook Updates on each new blog release or check out our website.
  • Vote! Once you read their blog, then Like or Tweet their blog to give them a vote (Like and Tweet buttons are included at the bottom of each blog)
  • The intern with the most likes and Tweets will win

The first prize in our competition....a gift from The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory located at Richland Mall in Waco. We are quite fond of their Gourmet apples....my favorite is Caramel/Peanut. Of course, the German Chocolate Fudge is really special!

Take this opportunity to critque and encourage Brett and Scott and learn about effective blogging in the process.

Read the first set of blogs written in the style of a personal profile and then vote. Encourage our interns and help them learn the art of blogging....perhaps you will learn a little about blogging too!

The Importance of Branding for Small Businesses

Is your small business leaving a lasting impression with your customers?


 

Developing a brand identity for any small business is not a quick fix. It is however a stepping-stone to establishing the look and credibility of your business. The only way to use this investment is to create it, and implement it. Creating your new brand and your new website will only work as far as it’s visible to your desired clients. Therefore, marketing efforts have to be implemented consistently (consistency is more important than the marketing budget).

You’ve probably heard the term Brand Equity but wonder what it is exactly? Simply put, it is the emotional value that a customer or potential customer sees in your product and business. It’s why YOU as a consumer may “trust” a company more than others. This brand equity can add significant VALUE when it is well recognized and has positive associations in the mind of a consumer. Its how some businesses charge more, and get away with it.

Think of a company such as Apple. They essentially sell computers - yet the average price for an Apple computer is twice as much as a PC. Is it because they have a better product? That could possibly be one of the reasons, but does that justify paying twice as much for a computer? It is because they have established a brand equity that consumers trust regardless of the product they are selling. Brand Equity does have a financial bearing on what you can charge. Do you want to be viewed as the company with the top product or service? or as the company that has bottom barrel prices? Each is a respectable place to be, it’s a matter of where you want to position YOUR company or product.

Like I ask many small business owners how much is a customer worth to you? If re-developing your brand identity, and website brings in an additional ten sales a month - what value can you put on each of those clients? What is the value of one sale?

Making sure that you are sending the right message initially to your potential customers, that your website is easy to use, that your message and what you’re selling is clear the first time around, is of vital importance to the success and growth of your business. If your company can recognize this importance, it’s clear you are moving in the right direction.

When developing a new identity, it is important to decipher the strengths and weaknesses of your business. Also who are your competitors, who are your customers, and what is your best chance of gaining these customers? All of these are things that need to be answered before we begin to develop the visual elements of your brand. Essentially, the visual elements (logos, business cards, advertisements, etc...) are all there to communicate the message of who and what your company is. We have to find out the answer to this before we begin. And this is where I can help.

CONSISTENCE IS KEY IN BRAND AND MARKETING. People trust what they see most. If they see you reaching out to them via social networking, email campaigns, website presence or print ad campaign directed at your target customer - and they see that presence continuously, this WILL give your company credibility (as long as you have a credible product or service that people need).

Having the opportunity to bring a comprehensive group of design products and fuse them with a company such as YellowWebMonkey is a great opportunity. I’m looking forward to continuing to bring a level of design, professionalism, and creative services to the Central Texas area. I couldn’t have asked to work for a better group of professionals that truly know their business inside and out, and work to bring the highest amount of quality work to current and future clients.
