Joomla provides an affordable web solution for many small businesses. This is an ideal solution for small businesses that require a website as it provides a cost effective solution that is also sustainable in the long run. Once your joomla site is up and running, you do not need to hire anybody to update the website. Joomla’s ability to have many sections, categories and pages allows your website grow as your business expands. Your website can be updated easily from any browser at any time and you do not even require any special HTML or other programming knowledge. If you can use a word processor or send an email then you can update your own website. It’s really that easy to use!

Joomla is designed so that anyone can update their content without knowledge of any coding languages. It is fairly simple but can become time consuming. It is our objective to basically “Get you started” with a nice website that you can maintain yourself with ease. However many people do not have the time for this. As our business grows we are getting many requests to make changes to previously completed websites. We do not mind doing this but it can take a lot of valuable time from us. In order to be able to help our clients with their maintenance we have started a “Hourly Maintenance Plan”. We will gladly make any minor updates, changes or fixes to your site. We will update, amend, modify, or add to your content, and even make minor graphic changes if needed. The "Hourly Maintenance Plan" is billed at $60 an hour (with a minimum of 1 hour) for these changes.
Anything exceeding one hour is rounded to the next hour. For example, for .75 hours you would be billed for 1 hour and for 1.25 hours of work, you would be billed for 2 hours.
