    About the Site Review

    Our Site Review will be held via Zoom with the site owner or their elected employee and will be followed up with a further review off zoom as necessary. The length of time of the site review will depend on your package.

    We’ll arrange a mutually convenient time to meet so you can point out any known issues as well as any concerns and/or struggles you may have with your WordPress website.

    We may need to review the WordPress dashboard as well as the individual pages, so ensure you are logged into your WordPress admin to screenshare or provide us with login information in advance of our Zoom meeting.

    During the site review, we may advise of any issues we discover with your website that you do not mention, such as messy design, loading issues, out-dated content, missing SEO, image file sizes and file-naming issues, SSL issues and/or outdated software, plugins and themes.

    Depending on your package, we may also make recommendations for any easy fixes you can do yourself, or that we can do for you right away. We will also review additional pages (depending on the package and number of issues encountered).

    Following the Zoom review, depending on your package and how many pages need reviewing, we will continue the Site Review offline to enable us to write our report and make further recommendations or provide tips.

    About the Site Report

    Following the Site Review, we will create a report itemizing any issues discussed during the Zoom review or discovered during our off-zoom review, plus any recommendations and/or tips needed to fix them.

    All packages include a general site report on site-wide issues which may include addressing page loading issues, theme and plugin issues, image optimization and file-naming issues, generic design issues, such as header, footer, menus, buttons and homepage specific design and content issues, including mobile responsiveness and SEO issues, plus any recommendations and/or tips on how to fix them.

    The report will also include a list issues with your home page specifically as well as a brief outline of work involved to provide a mini-refresh, refresh or revamp (depending on the package).

    Depending on your package, the Site Report also includes itemizing issues with any other pages included in the package, and will either include recommendations and tips to help you make improvements yourself or provide an outline of the work necessary for us to fix them for you.

    For any issues and fixes that are beyond the scope of your package, we will outline the additional work necessary to fix them and an estimate of the cost for us to do them for you. 

    Need a website review and homepage improvements?

      If you have a WordPress website in need of some improvements, use the form to contact us to purchase a package. Be sure to let us know how big your website is, which theme it is using and/or any issues you’re frustrated with. Not sure which package you need? Request an initial site review first. During your in-person site review, we can advise which package we feel will be required.

      Terms & Conditions

      A minimum deposit of 50% + HST is required to purchase a Site Review & Refresh Package. Once the Site Report has been provided, the remaining balance for the package is required before any further work is completed. Packages are non-refundable and must be used within three months of purchase. If you’re not sure which package you need, you may book an Initital Site Review ($120 + HST) to help us determine which package you need. The cost of the site review will be deducted from the cost of your package.

      *The API allows the Divi plugin or theme to be updated after new versions are released. The Divi API will remain active on your website for one year or for one additional month after the expiration of any subsequent maintenance packages. After that time, if you decide you no longer need us to help you with your website, you’ll need to purchase the Divi Plugin or Theme from Elegant Themes to continue updating the plugin or theme.
