A website is probably the most important tool a business can have in their marketing toolbox.
Virtual Webmaster Service
Q: “Why do I want or need a virtual webmaster?”
A: This is a common question we get asked and the answer is simple.
Every website has a need for someone to run it. Consider that your website is a company department, and the webmaster as being the manager that runs it. Once your website is up and running it will need ongoing maintance to some level. It may not need anything doing to it on a daily basis or even weekly, but it will need someone to keep it current, fix any unforeseen problems, add any updates needed and continue to improve your internet presence and ratings.
By using Jasmine Design as your webmaster these small routine tasks can be carried out without, causing you to stop everything whilst you seek a web designer/programmer, to complete the work needed. The added bonus also is, if we built your website we will already familiar with your business practice, helping us from the start know your needs better.
Q: “I already have a website I/web designer created but I’ve found I don’t know how to get the most from it I’m sure it could be creating more business/traffic than it is.”
A: We don’t only provide webmaster services to our current customers, we undertake work from anyone, whatever your website needs.
As well as general maintenance and admin tasks we’re happy to work with any third parties on your behalf. For example you may need a hand with some project management when getting a new service launched or designed. All tasks/work can be carried out in your company name so no one else need know you don’t have a full time webmaster/web manager in place.
All webmaster tasks and all work taken on, on your behalf will be kept confidential.
Q: “I’m not sure we can afford someone to run our website”
A: Webmaster service costs are totally dependent on your business/website needs there needn’t be any long term costs as you can pay for only time that you need set at an hourly rate. Or you may prefer to pay a small fixed monthly fee, for a set amount of time each month to take care of tasks.
