5 Things To Include in Your Website Maintenance Packages

When creating your monthly packages, decide whether you want to offer a maintenance package or a service package. A client may assume that a maintenance package includes making small website updates, like updating pages or adding new content. If you don’t want to include this in your monthly packages, try calling it a service package instead.
