Frequently Asked Questions

How often do you run updates?

We will run standard updates once per month. If there is an important update to prevent security issues, we will address those right away. We often wait a week or two before implementing major WordPress or Divi updates so that all the bugs get ironed out first.

Do you offer 24/7 support?

No we do not. Our support hours are 9AM – 5PM PDT, Monday through Friday. We hope to extend those hours in the future.

What if my plugin is no longer supported?

The plugin is still monitored for issues as before. If no breaking changes or other issues are presented, it remains on the site. We frequently encounter plugins with a variety of issues; in such cases, the customer is notified of better (and up-to-date) alternatives.

What are my payment options?

Payment can be made using any major debit or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover). Payments will be automatically deducted on the first of the month. PayPal is currently not accepted on our platform for subscription based services.

What is your cancellation policy?

No contracts. You are in full control of your subscription, and you can cancel at any time.

Only 30 minutes of SEO and Speed Optimization?

We have found that many of our clients cannot afford to invest an extra $2000-$5000 upfront for SEO and Speed Optimization services. So we often coach and advise as to how they can do it incrementally over time. But even that takes a lot of time and investment. So we decided to help them by offering incremental services. Every month we can work on one important element at a time. In time you will improve your site speed and SEO without a major up front investment.

What is Divi?

Divi is a WordPress Theme by Elegant Themes. We use it as a framework which we will build upon. Its many amazing features and great community support give you the best in options for customization and management of your own website after it’s initial construction.

Do I need a license for Divi?

As a licensed developer I am permitted to install and use Divi on as many projects as we want. If you choose to discontinue our services, I recommend you purchase a license to stay current with security updates and upgrades.

What if my site is already broken? Can you fix it?

Yes we can. We will take a look and see whats wrong and do our best to give you an approximate estimate as to what needs to be done and how long it will take to fix it.

What if I have not updated anything in months?

We will log into your website and perform a free audit before you spend a dime. We will look out for potential problems and conflicts so that they can be addressed up front. In some cases, websites may not have been updated in months and may require some major fixes before upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, Divi and all the applicable plugins. We will provide you a report and an estimate to get things fixed up before we sign you up for a maintenance plan.

Do you support multisite?

We currently do not support multi-site networks although we do hope to offer these services soon.

What if I have multiple websites?

The fees mentioned above are per site. At this time we do not offer discounts on multiple websites.

What if an update breaks my site?

The site is immediately rolled-back to the backup state taken prior to performing the update. The methods for this vary in some cases. From there, you’ll be notified of the issue. The majority of issues are addressed free of cost, however, custom plugins, issues introduced by users, or especially time-consuming issues may be billable. We will notify you before charging anything to your account.

Do my hours rollover if unused?

Unfortunately not. Your development time must be used every month or you will forfeit your development time for that month.

Do you offer a guarantee?

Yes we offer a 30 day money back guarantee. If at any time you feel like you haven’t received the service you signed up for, you will get your money back. This only goes back 30 days. We do not offer refunds for prior month’s services.

Getting Started.


In order to bring you best service possible, we will log into your website and perform a free review of your website before you spend a dime. We will look out for potential problems and conflicts so that they can be addressed up front.

In some cases, websites may not have been updated in months and may require some major fixes before upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, Divi and all the applicable plugins.

You will be asked to provide us administrator credentials so that we can log in and review all installations of WordPress, Divi, plugins and any customization that may have been done on the website.

If customization has been done on Divi’s parent theme files or you are running on Divi 2.3 or earlier, you will most likely require some major fixes before we can implement updates and start the maintenance plan. Please fill out the form below so we can get started.
