Common WordPress maintenance service questions
- We offer 24/7 support. Because WP Buffs was built around a 100% remote work environment, we have staff working from here in the US and across the globe.
- We give our customers access to premium plugins. Every website on our Protect Plan or Perform Plan care plans gets access to iThemes Security Pro (a $297 value), WP Smush Pro (a $600 value) and WP Rocket (a $199 value). This is pretty terrific value considering the overall prices of our care plans.
- When you work with WP Buffs, a significant part of your payment goes towards helping us donate time to causes we all care about. For example, a significant part of our revenue goes towards the 100% free development time and care plan we donate to herresiliencycenter.org. HER Resiliency Center is a non-profit organization that helps vulnerable young women ages 18 to 25 with the support, skills, and resources they need to make positive decisions and thrive. Through mentoring, workshops, and the support of dedicated and highly trained staff, HER gives young women a path to independence and a different life.
- We let our customers speak for themselves. Our team’s highest priority has always been to make customers happy. You can search for us on Google or check out our reviews on Facebook. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
- We have a white-label partnership program. WP Buffs partners with design agencies, marketing firms and freelancers by offering a simple and effective white-label solution. If you have clients or customers who need ongoing website edits, performance enhancements, additional security or any kind of regular maintenance, we’ll step in as your background technical partner.
You can include a self-destructing link with your login credentials during checkout. Or you can send them to us after you've signed up. Get them to us at your convenience.
Once you sign up, we'll have your plan set up within 24-48 hours. Everything from speed improvements to security optimization will be addressed by our team automatically.
We'll send you a series of introductory emails detailing how to effectively ask for edits, the best screen capture tools and other ways to get the most value out of your plan.
Unlimited edits do include edits to content, changing plugin settings and CSS adjustments. They do not included custom development (PHP, plugins, themes, etc), updating custom code, graphic design, PSD to WordPress or building out a new website or subdomain.
Websites with advanced functionality like this require our Perform Plan. They take more resources for us to manage, so making sure you’re on the right plan means we’ll be able to dedicate what’s needed to keep your website secure, fast and running smoothly.
We’ll work with anybody regardless of their hosting provider. We understand that different websites have different needs and that people have realistic budgets that they have to meet. If you'd like to upgrade, we recommend our trusted hosting partners.
Once you sign up for the care plan that makes the most sense for you, you'll receive a welcome email with information on your plan and details about how to securely send us your login credentials. Once you send login information for your WordPress dashboard and hosting provider, we'll have your plan fully implemented in 24-48 hours.
The speed enhancements can take up to a week since we have to optimize everything for your unique core files, theme and plugins and we want to be careful not to cause any downtime for your website. So we take our time and make sure this is done right instead of risking potentially compromising your website.
Our care plans each cover one single site. If you have multiple sites as subdomains of a site (e.g. wpbuffs.com and othersite.wpbuffs.com) they still count as separate sites. If you have 3 websites that you'd like us to manage, you'll need 3 plans, one for each site. You are more than welcome to choose different plans for each website.
We've set up our pricing structure to stay pretty lean and with our global team, it just makes more sense to handle all our support through email.
While we don't offer phone support, we've made customer service a huge priority here at WP Buffs and you'll find our email support fast, effective and friendly!
