Uk-based support team
We all work out of the Toast studio in Oxfordshire. Just call us on 01295 266644. You can even pop in and say hello! All staff are full-time, we don't use freelancers.
Everything done in-house
All work is completed by our own team, we outsource nothing. You'll deal with the same team all the time who will all get to know you and your site.
You can dial your plan up or down at anytime, top it up if you need more time or cancel it with one months notice. We don't tie our clients into complex contracts.
How it works.
We provide support via phone, email or support tickets.
Unlike many WordPress support services, all our team are based in our studio in the UK.
You can submit requests via email, our online ticket system or by giving us a call on 01295 266644.
Your support time is per-minute which means if a task takes us three minutes, we only record three minutes off your allocated time for the month.
This makes SiteCare great value for money and very efficient.
More services than most.
Whilst other WordPress maintenance providers only offer technical assistance, with Toast, you can use your support time across all the services we provide. These include:
As we’ll as providing WordPress support, Toast is a full-service creative and marketing agency, so you’ll get the benefits of having a team of 14 creative and marketing experts to call upon as-and-when needed.
On top of the retained WordPress support packages, we also provide ad-hoc support for smaller sites.
If you think that you might only need a bit of help every other month, our ad-hoc support might be the best option for you.
We call this Toast Time and it works like this:
You pre-buy a number of hours of our time in bulk and get a reduced hourly rate.
Each time you put in a support request (via phone, email or a ticket), we’ll give you an estimate of how long it will take.
Once done, we simply take the time off of your total.
Toast time is charged by the minute, so you won’t be charged for a full hours work for a small tweak to your site (like with ad-hoc support). Everything is recorded and we can provide fully-itemised reports on what you’ve used and what you have left.
If you run out of time, you can simply top-up or switch to a retained plan if we think that would be better value for you.
Toast Time does not include any reporting on your site as standard, but you can use your Toast Time to request Site Audits, Keyword reports and use it against any of the services we provide – from artwork to web design.
If you think you’ll need more support for your site, we can put together a bespoke SiteCare package to meet your needs. Just give us a call on 01295 266644 and we can have a chat through your requirements.
