Fully managed - Derek's Web Design - Derek's Web Design

Fully managed website

With our fully managed website package, we design your website and take care of updating content as requested.  Keeping your website up-to-date has never been easier!  It's as simple as prepare, preview and publish!

Prepare

To make a change to your site, prepare the changes in one of the following formats:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Powerpoint
  • In the body of an email
  • Print your website and annotate by hand then scan or take a photo of your notes

If you want to apply formatting such as bold, italics, different colours and different alignment, that's fine! Just apply those formats in your updates and we'll convert it into HTML on the website.

If you want to modify existing content, we recommend taking a copy of the page and then modifying the parts you want to change.  To copy a page, navigate to the page then select the text with your mouse. Then, right click on the selected text and click 'copy'.  Switch to an email or a Word document, then right click and select 'paste'.  You can then modify the text in the email or Word document ready to send to us.

If you need help copying a page into Word, just let us know and we can send you a copy.

Maybe you want to add a new page? As long as it will use the existing page layouts, that's fine!  Just send us the details and we'll get it online.

Once your changes are ready, send them via email to updates@derekswebdesign.com.au and we'll start work straight away.

Preview

Once we receive your updates, we will aim to send a preview back to you within 48 hours, but often it's even quicker than that.  We'll create a draft version of the page and email you a link so you can preview the changes.

When you review the changes, you're welcome to provide further feedback and make additional changes. Sometimes it's hard to visualise what a change will look like until you actually see it on the screen.

Publish

When you're happy with how the preview is looking, let us know and we'll publish the page to your website.  As soon as it's published, the new page will be visible to your visitors.

Changed your mind about an update, or want to add something more to the page?  No worries, just prepare the changes and repeat the process!

‌‌‌‌ Frequently asked questions

How often can I make changes?

The fully managed website plan allows for a reasonable number of simple change requests each month.  Generally this means up to 2-3 changes to existing pages, such as updates to text content.  More complex updates, such as a new page or substantial changes to existing pages, would reasonably be expected 1-2 times per month.

What types of changes are included?

Most changes to existing content are included.  These generally fit within two categories:

Simple changes Complex changes
  • Updates to existing text
  • Addition of new text, including tables, to an existing page
  • Addition of new image to an existing page
  • Removal of text or images from an existing page
  • Updates to existing webform (limited to 1-2 fields)
  • Updates to existing image slideshow
  • Embed an interactive Google map

Unfortunately some changes are not included, however they're generally not very expensive if you contact us for a quote.  Some examples of changes which are not included are:

  • A new web form, such as a contact page
  • A new image slideshow
  • Dynamic content such as a review page or shopping cart functionality
